"Random Acts Of Senseless Violence" as written by Frank Joseph Bello, Charlie L. Benante, John Robert Bush and Scott Ian Rosenfeld....
Shut up, don't pass the blame
The same god-damn thing just the name's have changed
On the day you were busted your forgot the line
Don't do the crime if you can't do the time
An animal's acting instinctively
Glorified murderer, insanity
Do you think I'd kill you just count to one
You're the coward, with the gun

Yeah, you thought you knew me
Yeah, you hardly knew me
You don't know me
I know I shouldn't care
My crazy senses of right and wrong that can't be made to break this,
break this, break this

I see something wrong and fix it with my hands
I walk a thin blue line, this cross I came to bear

So now you're dead well wha' dya know
And am I sorry no, I don't think so
They wanted sympathy now that's a bit much
How much did you show, how much
Take the value for one human life
And place it all right down on a roll of the dice
And a one, two, three for the pain you bring
I'm the bird without the left wing

Yeah, you thought you knew me
Yeah, you hardly knew me
You don't know me
I know I shouldn't care
My crazy sense of right and wrong that can't be made to break this,
break this, break this

I see something wrong and fix it with my hands
I walk a thing blue line, this cross I came to bear

Random acts of senseless, random acts of senseless
Random acts of senseless, random acts of senseless
Violence

I see something wrong and I fix it with my hands
I walk a thin blue line, this cross I came to bear
I see something wrong and I fix it with my hands
I walk a thin blue line and I'll be the one who laughs when,
You die

    General CommentThis song's about a serial killer. And yeah, Death7991 - it definitely kicks ass. The brief pauses of the guitar riffs sound like cocking a shotgun!!

    General CommentActually, I think the song is making fun of these trigger-happy gangsters who (to boost their ego/self-esteem) go around killing people and looking for trouble. Then they finally meet their match and get a dose of their own medicine. Being that Anthrax is from New York, such a thing is probably quite common where they live.
