"The Enemy" as written by and Wayne R. (static-x)/campos Wells....
Confine me its all that I see
Sickness keeps you following me
Keep it inside, all that is sharp
Hold it inside, all that is dark

Tear
Ill shut you up

Down, down, down
I'll destroy you
Kill or be killed
Down, down, down
You've become the enemy
Enemy

I thank you for making me feel
Make me feel like I want to kill
You show me you're evil inside
Now won't you just curl up and die

Tear
I'll shut you up

Down, down, down
I'll destroy you
Kill or be killed
Down, down, down
You've become the enemy
Enemy

You make me
You make me hate
You make me
You make me hate you

    General CommentFrom the booklet from the retail cd:

    Confine me it's all that I see
    Sickness keeps you following me
    Keep it inside, all that is sharp
    Hold it inside, all that is dark

    Tear
    I'll shut you up

    Down, down, down
    I'll destroy you
    Kill or be killed
    Down, down, down
    You've become the enemy
    Enemy

    I thank you for making me feel
    Make me feel like I want to kill
    You show me you're evil inside
    Now won't you just curl up and die

    Tear
    I'll shut you up

    Down, down, down
    I'll destroy you
    Kill or be killed
    Down, down, down
    You've become the enemy
    Enemy

    You make me
    You make me hate
    You make me
    You make me hate you

    My InterpretationI agree with @spartan023 in that is appears to be a song about inner struggles within oneself. That is, fighting the "demons" that we all have within ourselves.

    It could be depression, ill thoughts, or otherwise. Whatever the case, the song is about fighting these thoughts and pushing them down (out of your mind) ... could the last few lines be a response by these "thoughts"???
