I see him coming
We hold our rock we are ready
The thing we'll do to him
They aren't fit for anyone
Hey this is serious business
I'm gonna hate myself
Still I just can't wait to begin
The monster inside me
Can't be talked out of anything
He's got an appetite
Oh no he's hungry now
I just gotta restrain him
The seam inside me grows
Kiss your better half goodbye
All those things you trusted in
The man that you pride yourself on
All the control you think you hold
Anything that can go wrong
Will find itself come and gone
His body lies broken
Hey some harsh words were spoken
I feel terrible
It just got away
Had to make him pay
For the hole in my heart
It's been my fault from the start
If you think it all makes sense
Can you tell the difference
Between a quarter and twenty five cents
Anything that can go wrong
Will find itself come and gone

    General Commentto me, it sounds as he and his friends are angry at this boy (i think the boy took his GF away because some harsh words were spoken and he has a hole in his heart) He is so angry he just want to kick the living shit out of this guy and he knows when he has done this his conscienceness will make him feel bad but he is so broken that he doesnt care. But just after what has happened he feels bad about himself....

    General Commentthis song is about realizing you're really just a damn animal despite all of your fancy ideals.

    jeff ott's cover of it is great.
