Target locked a ruthless act
You're poised to get your basis back, how detrimental
Pathetic basket case that went unheard
As innocence, a dirty word, is annihilated
Gumption used for wrong regard
To carry out the cruel assault, the blood to be frozen

Creeping in with added sense
Your conscience just a small pretense, it's fabricated
Instate forgiveness right before the sin
The state your brain is in, it's complicated
Here's a change of plans instead
When someone else is steps ahead the hunter's been hunted

Didn't you get to see your
(Faceless crime turned on you? sniped from behind)
You didn't get to see your
(Faceless crime turned on you, sniped from behind)

Precision of the bullet block without a chance to sense the shock
Living is fleeing
A human being snuffed for game
You only have yourself to blame, it's so deceiving
Gumption used for wrong result has failed to nail the cruel assault
Your blood is freezing
Taken out before the strike
The sickest minds they think alike, your plan deleted
Unbeknownst to those below, the innocent are free to go, unviolated
Let this be a lesson learned for all content to let it burn,
you get yours first!

Didn't you get to see your
(Faceless crime turned on you? sniped from behind)
You didn't get to see your
(Faceless crime turned on you, sniped from behind)

Let this be a lesson learned for all content to let it burn,
you get yours first!

    General CommentThis song is about a terrorist that decides to stake out innocent people at a shopping mall, but unfortunately for him, our hero already knows his plans and takes him out before he harms anyone.
    I love the
    Faceless crime turned on you? sniped from behind
    because it sounds so amazing i'm blown away by it everytime I listen to this song. i still can not believe rolling stone magazine only gave this cd one star i wrote them at least ten letters about how unfair the review was and that they don't know what good music is if it bit them on the butt. so everyone out there DON'T BUY ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE THEY DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT MUSIC.

    General CommentYeah, it is a good song, but I don't think the whole album is that great. And it definitely isn't up to CKY standard. I don't think they'll do better than Vol. 1. And the "Faceless crime turned on you. Sniped from behind" lines are way to low and should've been brought to the front because the words themselves are cool. Just nit-picking though :)

    General Comment... it seems to me that the song is about assassinating a corrupted societal/political figure. Though, I'm sure they can't/won't state that in any interview. It follows the meaning in the album of "an answer can be found" which concerns American society.
