"Had Enough" as written by and Benjamin Burnley....
Milk it for all it's worth
Make sure you get them first
The apple of your eye
The rotten core inside
We are all prisoners
Things couldn't get much worse
I've had it up to here
You know your end is near

You had to have it all
Well, have you had enough?
You greedy little bastard, you will get what you deserve
When all is said and done
I will be the one
To leave you in the misery and hate what you've become

Intoxicated eyes, no longer live that life
You should have learned by now, I'll burn this whole world down
I need some peace of mind, no fear of what's behind
You think you've won this fight, you've only lost your mind

You had to have it all
Well, have you had enough?
You greedy little bastard, you will get what you deserve
When all is said and done
I will be the one
To leave you in the misery and hate what you've become

Oh, oh, oh

Hold me down (I will live again)
Hold me down (I will break it in)
Hold me down (better in the end)
Hold me down

You had to have it all
Well, have you had enough?
You greedy little bastard, you will get what you deserve
When all is said and done
I will be the one
To leave you in the misery and hate what you've become

Heaven help you

Heaven help you

    General Commentthis song is one of my favorites on Phobia, but they really remind me of Chevelle now with this Drop A tuning. This song in particular. The refrain on this and Vitamin R are the same pattern. Breaking Benjamin kicks arse! ROCK ON.

    General CommentBest song on Phobia.

    I don't know anything about the stuff with the old drummer, but I think this song is about greedy bastards getting what they deserve.

    General CommentHaha. I'm gonna have to agree with IndelibleEntity. It sounds like some greedy bastards are definitely getting what they deserve.

    General CommentYeah, it has to be about Jeremy Hummel, who was the former drummer of the band. He sued BB for something like $8 million after saying they didn't pay him for songs he helped write. This is my personal favorite song on the album. It's such a powerful song, especially when he says "greedy little bastard, you will get what you deserve." I just went to a BB concert in Des Moines Sunday night and they were fucking amazing. They didn't play this song unfortunately. Awesome performers.

    General Comment@ TheRavager

    definately not. It's about Hummel, the ex drummer. has nothing to do with national politics. Green Day can help you there.
