"Every Red Cent" as written by and Rocky Votolato....
We're moving on, the bags are all packed
I'm feeling like less of a wreck
The plans for revenge have all been detailed and laid out
The graves have all been dug don't let me forget one for myself

I've got hate running through my veins
And my blood runs like the venom of a poisonous snake
Emptiness, my old friend
Keep me company as I hunt down and kill my enemies,
Cause there must be someone to blame

Someone to blame for the way I've been feeling
I've been shot at, I've been cheated,
How could you send me to this place
I have every right to feel the way I've been feeling
Shut up
I don't want to hear anymore of your dirty excuses

You've got hate running through your veins
And your blood runs like the venom of a poisonous snake
Emptiness, my old friend
Will be your victory and the riches you have earned you deserve every red cent

It's too late to turn back now
Crying for a love that you know you never learned how to make
Buried in what you dug
Crying for a love when you know you never learned how

Hate is running through my veins
And my blood runs like the venom of a poisonous snake
Emptiness, my old friend
Keep me company as I hunt down and kill my enemies cause there must be

    General Commentwow i never looked at these lyrics until just now and theyre pretty awesome. hes got such a great vocal range so its not just good lyrics but really well sung too. this is an alot fast paced song than some other songs ive listened to by him. its a nice transition from slower tempos. its like a hate song and blaming troubles on someone else. its pretty awesome i cant comprehend half of it or say it in words.

    General CommentThis is a pretty intense song. In my opinion its seems like he got shafted and is just giving them what they deserve. He is tired of being lied to from whoever about whatever it was

    "crying for a love that you know you never learned how to make" thats some great writing...

    My Interpretation"my blood runs like the venom of a poisonous snake"


    blood= what keeps you alive
    venom of a poisonous snake= something that kills

    conclusion= the desire to kill whatever is hated is what is keeping him alive.

    the rest of the song i think is pretty self explanitory
