"Voices Of Violence" as written by and Ian/kowalewicz D'sa....
Don't wait for a knight in shinin' armor
Your savior's reflected in the mirror
These flowers have grown from blood stains on the ground
Go rake the leaves off your grass and my grave
The fact is everyone bleeds when they shave
There's no use, so don't deny their just the same

We'll take it back
(Broken dagger, Southern swagger)
Voices of violence, voices of violence
We'll take it back
(Broken dagger, Southern swagger)
Voice of violence, voices of violence

These cowboys will run off in the sun set
Once there toys have donned another profit
Back fire these smokin' guns will never rest
Unleash the skeletons from the closet
These Strangers like friends that you've never met
They'll send them sympathies with a Hallmark card

We'll take it back
(Broken dagger, Southern swagger)
Voices of violence, voices of violence
We'll take it back
(Broken dagger, Southern swagger)
Voices of violence, voices of violence

Even after I'm dead and buried
I'll still remember, I'll still remember
Even after I'm dead and buried
I'll still remember, I'll still remember
Even after I'm dead and buried
I'll come back for fighting, I'll come back fighting!!

We'll take it back
Voices of violence, voices of violence
We'll take it back
(Broken dagger, Southern swagger)

Voices of violence will always be heard
Voices of violence, voices of violence
Voices of violence will always be heard
Voices of violence, voices of violence

    General CommentCorrections on the lyrics.
    1) It's SAVOIR's.

    2) In the chorus, it's "We'll take it back. Broken Dagger, Southern Swagger."

    Damn good song,

    General CommentThis is an excelent song.
    When I went to the Billy Talent concert in October 03, the members said a little bit about this song before they played it and said that, to them, it sort of represented Bush and all that shit.

    General CommentGeorge Bush, baby!


    And is Savior, not savoir, but good try!

    (and whoever posted the lyrics, look at a dictionary...

    1) Herd=heard
    2)Burried=buried
    3)Denie=Deny
    4)have doned another...=have turned another...
    5)Unlease=Unleash
    6)meet=met
    6)They'll send them shipments to hold my gun = They'll send them, sympathies with a hallmark card.)

    Why can't song posters just get it right, so they don't have to be corrected?

    General Commentmmkay, i'm bored, so i'm going to go more into detail then my last post did. just do i don't get anyone on my ass for using "wrong" lyrics, i'm taking these right out of the c.d. booklet.

    "Dont wait for, a knight in shining armour
    your savior's, reflected in the mirror"
    this is saying that you can't look to anyone else to help you, you have to actually take a stand and do something.

    "these cowboys, will ride off in the sunset
    once their toys, have turned another profit"
    the cow boy represents bush, and how as soon as he gets money out of iraq, or whatever country he will leave and leave his "toys" to rebuild.

    "unleash the, skeletons from the closet"
    maybe the guys are saying that bush should make his past public. take his skeletons out of the closet. or maybe, it's a reference to michael moore, and the books/documentaries he's doing on bush.

    "we'll take it back!"
    maybe this is a promise that bush won't get re-elected, that the people will take back the power they gave him (unfortuantly, if that is the case, it didn't happen D: )

    "even after i'm dead and buried, i'll still remember
    even after i'm dead and buried, i'll come back fighting!"
    maybe that the people who died for bush's 'cause' won't forgive him, and they (family members/friends fighting in their name?) will fight him.

    "voices of violence will always be heard"
    this might just be to the protesters. people always listen to the protests, for whatever reason, and maybe it's saying that they might get through to enough people to make a difference.

    that's just my opinion though.
