in cold blood
i claim this day
i charge blind
into the fray
in the name
of all my pain
i bare my teeth
to make him pay
i sink on down
and greet her end
with the worms
and the dead
with serpent strength
and true hate
i bare my teeth
to make her pay
maw mends
i take flight
for one last time
with raven wings
and two black eyes
don’t be afraid
with demon speed
the gift of hate
i bare my teeth
to make them pay
don’t be afraid
nowhere to hide

    General Commenthaunting, frightening, powerful, inspiring...
    the lyrics stand for some kind of revenge, some kind of rise above.
    awesome song and the guitar reef is way too catchy.

    General CommentThis was the first song I ever heard by Converge, and the song that got me into them in the first place, so it holds a special place in my heart. Although I could hardly make out what Jake was screaming, the intensity of the song just latched onto me.

    General CommentWhen I listen to this song, the first part lyrically seems like an expression of deep despair and rage and after the portion that plays out between 1:09 and 1:23 it seems really empowering all of a sudden. The tone of the lyrics changes as the intensity of the song reaches it's breaking point, and that's what makes it so powerful. It sort of has the feeling of hitting bottom, only to be stronger in the aftermath. Arguably, the best track on No Heroes as far as I'm concerned.
