"Riot" as written by and Neil/gontier Sanderson....
If you feel so empty
So used up, so let down
If you feel so angry
So ripped off, so stepped on
You're not the only one
Refusing to back down
You're not the only one
So get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

If you feel so filthy
So dirty, so fucked up
If you feel so walked on
So painful, so pissed off
You're not the only one
Refusing to go down
You're not the only one
So get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

If you feel so empty
So used up, so let down
If you feel so angry
Just get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

    General CommentGREAT song. It gets my blood flowing through my veins faster than a red bull. It just makes everything feel better. I like hearing that yeah shit happens. But I'm not the only one that has to deal with it.

    General CommentI love this song and all my friends are so confused because I'm a really quite person.
    ANYWAY,
    Pretty much this song is just about being angry and not being afraid to show it sometimes, not necessarily starting a riot (no matter how great it sounds,) but letting someone know your mad, and standing up for yourself when you feel walked on.:
    "If you feel so walked on", So painful, so pissed off,You're not the only one, "Refusing to go down", You're not the only one, "So get up"

    Thats my thoughts anyway.

    General CommentNot a really deep song at all, no explanation needed, huh?

    But this is one of the best songs on One X. One day I had it on repeat and let it play about seven times.

    General CommentIt's about being disaffected and now the people have a leader with no other way to vent their frustrations through violence ie rioting.
