"Hell & Consequences" as written by James Donald Root, Shawn Economaki, Josh Rand and Corey Todd Taylor....
I'm not a victim 'til I let you take me down
I'm not a target in the sights of your mercy
I never asked for anything, I'm not asking now
I will not be afraid, I will not be afraid

I've done this on my own, and I don't care what you do to me
I won't hand over what is mine
I've done this for too long to let you take it away from me
It's too late to stop me 'cause I refuse to die

I haven't weakened just because I've shown myself
I've taken everything except what's for granted
I'll leave hypocrisy for everybody else
I will not be afraid, I will not be afraid

I've done this on my own, and I don't care what you do to me
I won't hand over what is mine
I've done this for too long to let you take it away from me
It's too late to stop me 'cause I refuse to die

I'm not a problem 'til you make one out of spite
I'll give you hell and consequences for trying
If you don't want an enemy, don't fuck with my life!
I will not be afraid, I will not be afraid

I've done this on my own, and I don't care what you do to me
I won't hand over what is mine
I've done this for too long to let you take it away from me
It's too late to stop me 'cause I refuse to die
I've done this on my own, and I don't care what you do to me
I won't hand over what is mine
I've done this for too long to let you take it away from me
It's too late to stop me 'cause I refuse, I refuse to die
I refuse to die

    General CommentSounds to me like a taunt, directed at someone he sees as trying to drag him down, and he's telling them:

    the only way you'll take me down is if I let you, and "I refuse to die"

    General Commenti think this is about him warning someone to stay away, and if that person screws with his life, he will screw around with their life, and nothing will stop him

    General Commentas already said it pretty much speaks for its self the song that is...telling people or a certain someone not to fuck with him or he will give them hell and no one will be able to get in his way and stop him

    General CommentThis is obviously an anti-christian song.

    "Im not a target at the sites of your mercy, "
    "I'll leave hypocrisy for everybody else"

    And then the chorus... it's all about protest against preachers and the fact that christianity dictates its rules pretty much everywhere.

    "I’m not a problem
    untill you make one out of spite"
    He doesn't really gives a fuck until he's offended

    "Ill give you hell and consequences for trying,"
    Oh, and he'll give'em the Most Feared Thing On Earth (tm)

    "don’t want an enemy,
    DON’T FUCK WITH MY LIFE"
    Once again... hit me, i'll hit back

    The song roxx... a similar one is "Hypocrites" by KoRn

    General Commenti love this song, its obviously about giving up an addiction the line "i've done this to myself" and "It's too late to stop me because i refuse to die' both make that obvious. I like these lyrics though, showing that others disapprove but he refuses to give it up.
