You're the only one I ever told
That I will rape this day

Got a barking dog
And a smile to tell
And I will hate this day

Sporting the name brands
Clothes make the man
And I will rape this day

Guess a heart won't break
That ain't pumpin' Kool-aid

I got a fighting chance
You know you promised me the last dance
A micro naught in time
This fat 24 is all mine

Nothing but moans and blood
And so my blood counts my loss
You cannot eat just one
A diaphragm revelation

Just want to get some disease
And get your stampin' heart the hell outta here

I'm gonna rape this day
I'm gonna rape this day
I'm gonna rape this day
Rape this day

This is the real mouth
Sew it up and fly south
And I will rape this day

I'll blow with you on the ground
Or leave it 'til the leaves turn brown

And I will pinch and tear
And pull and kick you right there
I'll proud and jerk and stretch
Into a pretty bruise, a cat scratch

Put a rake on your neck
But who would cry or complain?
Compared to the pain of your sorry white vein...

I'm gonna rape this day
I'm gonna rape this day
I'm gonna rape this day
I'm gonna rape this day

    General CommentPretty cryptic song... i'm not sure about the meaning, to me it seems like a "man on the edge" kind of story, you know, everythings is wrong, you feel bad about your life all day... so you're going to "rape" it, you're going to snap and do something very bad.

    General CommentThere's no chance that this album is a prequel to what takes place in self-titled... right?

    General CommentThis song is quite catchy, which is odd considering the brutal lyrics. This was my first exposure to Tomahawk. I was expecting something really heavy, not pop-punk-metal. My preffered type of music is pop punk, so I like this song and will definetley be checking out more music by Tomahawk.

    General CommentIt's definitely "Pumping kool-aid", cause it's about a heart.
    It might be worth noting that Rape is based on the Latin to Seize.
    Carpe Diem - Seize The Day/Rape The Day.

    I think Marquez got it right. It's quite negative - digging at how Clothes do make the man, that the world/society is crap and that he needs to tear it down and destroy it.

    I really wish he would.

    General Commentso i played this album in a dvd player, which apparently ive never done before, because some songs play a lil' differently. in this song, the part where the lyrics start-the guitar part is missing-so you hear silence-then patton, then drums.
    ...also on mayday
