"Enemy" as written by Ezekiel L. Lewis, Balewa M. Muhammad, Timothy Z. Mosley, Leslie Jerome Harmon, King Solomon Logan, Christopher J. Cornell and Ryan B. Tedder....
Step up to me, Step up to me
You want to be a big time player, it's not to be
Look at all the snide ass, actin' like a wise ass
I'll fuck up your face and you'll never look back

So when you fall to the ground
And finally get back to reality
And no one at all is around
So tell me how does it feel to be the enemy?

Step up to me, Step up to me
Step up to me, Step up to me
Step up to me, Step up to me
You want to be a big time player, it's not to be

Look at your face, look at your name
It's funny you're a loser with only yourself to blame
Cut your fucking hair now, scared of all the stare downs
You want to be like me cause it's real
So you steal on your way to fame
Never gonna be, never gonna see
Your name in lights, you can always dream what 'cha could've been
Clean up my shit, you look like a dick
Step to unemployment, step

So when you fall to the ground
And finally get back to reality
And no one at all is around
So tell me how does it feel to be the enemy?

So when you fall to the ground
And finally get back to reality
And no one at all is around
So tell me how does it feel to be the enemy?

Step! step! Step up to me, step up
You're the enemy!
Step! step! Step up to me, step up

So when you fall to the ground
And finally get back to reality
And no one at all is around
So tell me how does it feel to be the enemy?

So when you fall to the ground
And finally get back to reality
And no one at all is around
So tell me how does it feel to be the enemy?

Step up to me, Step up to me,
Step up to me, Step up to me,
Step up to me, Step up to me,

    General Comment""Enemy" was originally called "Pez", a derogatory nickname Rose had for Fafara. "We called him that because I used to say, 'I want to take this dude's head and pull it back and rip his tongue out of his neck,' " Rose grumbled."

    This is why the went with pez

    I would like to know why this animosity (see what I did there?) exists. I've heard from her that "Dez" was an ass.. but how? Why? I mean he was misserable after a while in coal chamber.. maybe because they were greedy and stifiling his joy for the music? It's hard to say.

    I used to rock out to tyler's song all the time.. I really enjoy coal chamber/devildriver.. and yes.. sevendust. I have listend to sevendust since waffle.

    Dez seems like a great person now that he's in a good enviroment. He openly cares for his fans and band mates. Devildriver was probably one of the best concerts I have ever been too.

    General Commentno actually dpf62984 they don't suck. grow a dick and then maybe ill take your opinion seriously

    and sevendustnut you are a total jackass. devildriver are far from being screamo anything. and this "because sevendust don't need to scream everything out, automatically they are better" crap well that just proves you are a moron. sevendust is better imo yes but just because devildriver screams all the time doesn't automatically mean they are worse.

    General CommentGreat job for Dez being an ass hole to Morgan's wife, I can't believe no one notices the OTHER MEANINGS of the song.
    A song doesn't always mean one set thing.

    My personal reflection is that feeling you get when you're mad at someone who breaks ties w/ you. The kid who doesn't talk to you anymore, the persong who puts you down.

    Enemy describes the feelings, hoping that after all they have done, after all the dust clears and your and their anger has dispresed, or you're ready to forgive after they make a move. Enemy tells me, that when you finally come to and hit rock bottom (so when you fall to the ground, and finally get back to reality). When they come to they can hopefully realize the wrongs they have done, and see who they've pissed off.
    Mostly it's the anger you feel toward this person after they've betrayed you, but the question is will you forgive the enemy?

    General Commentwhat was it? "A complete character assassination of Dez Fafara" from DevilDriver/ex-Coal Chamber because he was supposedly a complete asshole to Rayna Rose (his former bandmate who is married to Morgan Rose from Sevendust)
