Live from the vacant lot. Everything that you dread.
We are the broken teeth amassing in your head.
This is the new violence. We want more.
Cry if you’re feeling faint. Yeah yeah.
We’ll bring the cameras in its time to carve you out.
Bang, bang motherfucker yeah.
So while you sleep at night.
We will crawl inside and eat you alive.
You host the parasite, we'll hold your televised suicide.
We’re gonna find you tonight.
We’ve got the bright lights.
You’ll be a star.
So get the bullets all right.
And pull the trigger.
What is there left to lose? Why are you holding back?
Your fifteen minutes will be over in a flash.
The leeches are at your throat. We want blood.
Lie if you’re feeling faint.
We’ll tie you up and down and drain your life away.
We want blood.
(chorus)
Who are you?
You’re no one.

    General CommentThis songs talk’s reality shows and how much they suck. "You’ll be a star. So get the bullets all right.
    And pull the trigger...Your fifteen minutes will be over in a flash." because in reality shows you see people back staving each other in the back. Or even the producers making things up to make ppl fight.
    "The leeches are at your throat. We want blood. "

    Bang, bang motherfucker yeah.

    General Commenti think this song is about the media and how it can give people bad images and make everything seem bad. the new violence is ruining peoples lives and making everyone hate them. like what teen girls do in movies. they spread dirt about them to everyone and ruin their image. "Cry if you’re feeling faint. Yeah yeah," i took this to mean that they want them to break so that they can televise that too and make it seem like they are really flipping out at them for no reason. "We’ll bring the cameras in its time to carve you out." that one is saying to bring the cameras in and get all of their secrets. i dont want to explain what each line means to me and im guessing u get my idea.

    General CommentI definately get the feeling that they are talking about how gossip and or the no-longer-private private life we have nowadays leads to crap. Eventually for some people, suicide because of what secrets or rumors were spread. Peer pressure I believe. Especially with the "Who Are You?" "You're no one..."

    General CommentAh. After reading some of the other comments, I guess it makes more sense.

    I thought this song was literally about trying to get someone to kill themselves so that the narrator and whoever is with him/her can film it. =/
