"To The Rats" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
To hide behind
Barricade
Built up inside
You think you're safe

But someday we all will find you
Come to where you work
And fucking tie you
Every lie
Shot back
To your throat
By our hands

A skull-fuck
For every word
You try to breathe
Don't fuck with this

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you
In a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

Off the set
Each second fades
In denial of you
Till your jealousy reseeds you
You're really in love
With all that I do

Every lie
Shot back
To your throat
By our hands

A skull-fuck
For every word
You try to breathe
Don't fuck with this

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you
In a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

This is to the rats
This is to the rats

This is to the rats
This is to the rats

In your conscience

You secretly want to be
Just like me

A skull-fuck
For every word
You try to breathe
Don't fuck with this

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you
In a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you
In a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

    General Commentas for the song, it is basically written to the Trivium haters out there. Don't mess with Trivium, you'll probably get skullfucked and every bone in your face broken. this song really kicks ass. When you threaten another person's family like that ("If you mess with my life
    I'll mess with your blood"), you have to be a true badass, and thats exactly what Matt Heafy is. After a kickass song, he busts out some sweet vocals out of nowhere when he sings "Deceptions." that was so cool when i heard that.

    General CommentI don't think this show's what Trivium turned into, but I think it's just their "fuck you" song. Everybody's got one, and they're never lyrically brilliant, particularly this song. And btw, skull fuck is an awesome term

    General Commenthere's the actual lyrics:

    You hide behind the barricades
    Built of facades, you think you're safe
    But someday we all find you
    Come to where you work
    And fucking tie you

    Every lie
    Shoved back
    Down your throat
    By our hands

    A skull fuck
    For every word
    Just try to breathe
    Don't fuck with this

    (chorus)
    Break every bone in your face
    If you mess with my life (mess with our life)
    I'll mess your blood
    Bury you in a coffin made of your
    A coffin made of your deceiptions

    Obsess as each second fades
    In denial of your mind made
    Still your jealousy precedes you
    You're really in love
    With all that I do

    This is to the rats

    And your conscience still tears at you
    You secretly
    Want to be just like me

    General CommentI think this is their best song in term of solos, especially the one that sounds like a complete rip-off of "The Thing that Should Not Be".

    Awesome.
