"Will Someone Shoot That Fucking Snake" as written by and Laurent Benjamin Barnard Christopher Frank Carter....
Something wicked this way comes
When I see it every night
You ain't a rockstar yet (you're dead)
You need some self-respect
You always were a fucking prick

Blackening her name
Screaming in her face
I'll fucking drown you in the rain
Will someone shoot that fucking snake

I've got a knife for you
To turn your heart from red to blue
The beating
I've got a knife for you
Engraved with the words fuck you
The bleeding

Something wicked this way comes
When I see it every night
You ain't a rockstar yet (you're dead)
You need some self-respect
You always were a fucking prick

Blackening her name
Screaming in her face
I'll fucking drown you in the rain
Will someone shoot that fucking snake

We've got a knife for you
You're fucked you can't get rescued
The pleading
We've got a knife for you
You're fucking dead when we catch you
The screaming

    General CommentAll is dream, do you know what the word satire means? Obviously not. You're a tool. Go listen to the Ramones and go be ubar punxxx.

    This song, as well as much of the rest of the album, is their angst about how people realy aren't treated as equals, and how women are still treated as sexual tools. The song "Come Friendly Bombs" would appear to you to be some crazy violent Moshcore song as the likes of Hatebreed or Agnostic Front, but it's actually about how they are sick of people being violent just for the sake of being violent. The Dead Kennedys had to deal with idiot Neo-Nazi's as well, because their *satirical* music wasn't caught on as being satirical.

    General Comment"Nothing intelligent about them, just violent and thuggish"

    What's wrong with that? Their aggression is what attracts people to listen to them. It's the reason why bands like Slayer have such a huge following. Pure anger.

    I admit their lyrics aren't particulary on par with Einstein, (unless he threatened to go stabbing people in the fucking face. I dunno.) but again, there's nothing wrong with that either. Sometimes I want to listen to music that's blunt, simple and easy. Other times, I want to listen to lyrics with complex metaphors and obscure references - it all depends on whatever your mood is.

    "well, as being a fan of Morrissey..."

    This isn't really anything to boast about, matey. Nor does it qualify you to judge lyrics from your huge ivory tower.

    General CommentIf you're not bothered about your poor spelling, then why correct yourself? You're very easy to wind-up, and I recommend you learn to chill out and realise how relatively unimportant you and your beloved Gallows really are, in the grander scheme of things.

    "You have absolutely no place to comment on my taste in music, shithead."

    Hmm, then why comment on my taste in music? Hypocrite. Yet another person who thinks they're always right, but blatantly isn't.

    PS - Have you got Tourettes? Or are you just too stupid to post a sentence without swearing at least once? Tut tut.

    General Comment@ All Is Dream...
    i've got to say, it's been a gas reading these ridiculous comments back and forth. you are completely entitled to your own opinion and it's perfectly okay that you think their lyrics are trite. however, don't you think telling them they could be doing better things than sitting on a computer defending a band is a little...stupid? i mean, you're wasting your time on a page for people to talk about the meanings of song lyrics, when you don't even like the band. i personally couldn't care less. i love them but if you thought they were the most terrible pieces of shit on the planet, why would i care? that's cool that you have you're own opinion, but who the fuck are you to me, right? i'm sure you can understand that.

    you don't like them? that's totally okay and i respect that, but..so what? no one really gives a shit that you don't like them, and you could be doing better things than wasting your time on this. you try to point out how stupid people are for letting this argument go on and yet...you are as well. in fact, they clearly like this band quite a bit, so i can see why they would defend it. but.. you don't even like them. so that makes you look even more stupid, for spending so much time on a page for a band you dislike.

    yes, yes you're doing it to see how many gallows fans you can stir up or whatever, but really..you look like a fool. it's the truth. at first you were in the right, but now you just seem like a complete tool. i don't see why you couldn't have stated your opinion, of course defended your opinion, and then washed your hands of it. it's really kind of sad, but to each his own. i guess that's just how some people get their jollies, but it's pretty childish, especially on some internet site.
    well there's my two cents about that, and i wont be replying retorts because i have better things to do. :)

    anyway...gallows is hit, i absolutely adore them and this song is amazing. just pure emotion, i can really let out some anger when i listen to this!

    xx

    General CommentWell whoopee shit, ANOTHER song about revenge! I hope this bunch of Neo - Nazi lookalike chavs go away VERY SOON. I saw an interview with them recently and they seemed to they were bigger than the mighty Clash or something, hinting that an upcoming gig would prove to be as monumentous as early punk gigs from the likes of The Sex Pistols and The Clash, etc. Bollocks. Their lyrics are just not inspiring AT ALL. Nothing intelligent about them, just violent and thuggish, and that's exactly the sort of 'fans' they seem to attract - thugs. You learned things from other 'punk revival/hard rock' bands such as The Manics, but this bunch of moronic twats seem hell bent on revenge and violence. Pointless.
