"Absent" as written by Michael Tristram Doling, John L. Fahnestock, Ronald D. Jr. Mayo, James Michael Miller and James Lynn Strait....
Well now it seems more than silence has been broken
And I think I've figured out the the dying lie
Yes the truth is that your dialect is half truth
Another conversation died alone

This is something we created
Yes, well the sufferment's abated
It doesn't have to be a prophecy
We could be both seeking destiny

It's fucking down to us and them
You can decide which one wins
Now's the time, are you the hunter or the hunted?

Absent - Sometimes it feels like it's us against them
Absent, sometimes it feels like their angers are justified
If it feels like I'm absent... from your conversation
Just keep on talking and you'll find out... You're probably right

Now it seems that there are no easy answers
To the same old question I've imposed
What does it mean? Why would you bother asking me?
Like it's something I should know

Just 'cause they paid me to take it
I guess their money gave me credence
Watch our records soar
As you slow down to buy the accident - SO SICK!!

Know that I'll pull your covers, bitch
Yes I'm fixin' to knock that ego down
Well I might slap you punk ass to the floor
Stupid motherfucker, nothin' but a buster
Still talkin' shit!

Devoid of soul, so ya dig yourself a hole
Take the fun out, I load the gun for you
Incorrect, cause and effect, you've been sold
Live in the wrong, so ya live in the lies
Take the fun, load the gun, incorrect, cause and effect

I'm absent

I don't care
Yes you're probably right

I don't care

    General CommentIn the Chorus, and at the end:
    Absent - Sometimes I feel like it's us against them
    Absent - Sometimes it feel's like their anger's are justified
    Same at the end, after Absent -.

    I think in this song, at the beginning its like talking about people saying something to your face, and then talking shit behind you. This is something that the human race in all has created. Kind of like all of us are blind, and sometimes it really gets to you, racism, hatred, and it feels like our angers are REALLY justified of why their supposed to be there, but in the truth they aren't. At the end I think their saying, you have no soul, and the more you talk you just keep digging a bigger hole for yourself. Soon, he's going to come for you, pulling the covers you have over your eyes, and telling you "how it is."

    Basically, Don't sell out, don't become a mold, be yourself. Use your own judgement for what you think. Just like almost all of Snot's songs, be yourself and control your life.

    RIP Lynn
