"Violent" as written by Amy E Millan, Torquil John Campbell, Christopher Allen Seligman and Evan Whitney Cranley....
Both naked now
Touching you as little
As this bed allows
Staring at the car lights
Crawl across the floor
You're finished for the evening
But I'm wanting more

Both wide awake
Trying not to breathe for the other's sake
I'm not sure how much more of this
We're supposed to take
Before we kill each other

I feel violent for you, lover
I feel violent for you, lover
Never ever touch another
I feel violent for you, lover

Both naked now
Touching you as little as this single bed allows
Staring at the car lights
Crawl across my bedroom floor
The city is a call girl
Mother nature is a whore

I feel violent for you, lover
I'm violent for you, lover
Never ever trust another
I feel violent for you

Touch me one more time
And I will have to touch you
I work in the diamond mines
We dig for things like you

When the morning comes
Will you become one love
Put your eyes out with my thumb
Suffocate you with the bed covers
I'll let you take me first
Then I'll be taking over
Take you deep inside me baby
Keep your body here 'til summer

Violent for you, lover
Violent for you, lover
Never ever touch another
Violent for you, lover

You finish late
And now I know that this is how love's supposed to be
I tortured you
And in return you tortured me
So if you have a lover love them violently
Violently

I'm violent for you, lover
I feel violent for you, lover
Never ever touch another
I feel violent for you, lover

I'm violent for you, lover
I feel violent for you, lover
Never ever trust another
I'm violent
For you

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a relationship held together by sex. It's as though they've exhausted all forms of communication, and can only now take comfort in the physical aspects of love. Perhaps it isn't even the same love they once felt. They are together by circumstance, almost as though they know that they will be ruined if they seperate, but they are in a desperate situation by staying together; sex seems to be their only outlet.

    General CommentHaha whenever this song comes on in my car, I like to tell my friends "Oh, this is a song about kinky sex." And get the immediate "wtf?" faces. I love this song. I think it's more like to be really expressive with your emotions. Be aggressive. Take them to the max. At least, that's what I get from it.

    I love that line.

    It seems to me as though they both hate each other, but are still sexually attracted to each other. But there are many ways to take this song. It's like hot, angry sex. I love it.
