"Scream" as written by Jonathan Seward, Jr. Haner, Matthew Charles Sanders, James Owen Sullivan and Zachary James Baker....
Caught up in this madness too blind to see
Woke animal feelings in me
Took over my sense and I lost control
I'll taste your blood tonight

You know I make you wanna scream
You know I make you wanna run from me baby
But now it's too late you've wasted all your time

Relax while you're closing your eyes to me
So warm as I'm setting you free
With your arms by your side there's no struggling
Pleasure's all mine this time

You know I make you wanna scream
You know I make you wanna run from me baby
But now it's too late you've wasted all your time

Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring
Cover me, unwanted clemency
Scream till there's silence
Scream while there's life left, vanishing
Scream from the pleasure, unmask your desire
Perishing

We've all had a time where we've lost control
We've all had our time to grow
I'm hoping I'm wrong but I know I'm right
I'll hunt again one night

You know I make you wanna scream
You know I make you wanna run from me baby
But now it's too late you've wasted all your time

Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring
Cover me, unwanted clemency
Scream till there's silence
Scream while there's life left, vanishing
Scream from the pleasure, unmask your desire
Perishing

Some live repressing their instinctive feelings
Protest the way we're built don't point the blame on me

Scream, scream, scream the way you would
If I ravaged your body
Scream, scream, scream the way you would
If I ravaged your mind

Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring
Cover me, unwanted clemency
Scream till there's silence
Scream while there's life left, vanishing
Scream from the pleasure, unmask your desire
Perishing

    Song MeaningI'm sorry to say, you are all wrong.

    This song is not about rape, or vampires, or rough sex. This song is actually about the satisfaction of taking someone's life and the thrill of killing. This is actually what the band's meaning of the song is, they said themselves, so don't go thinking its about a rapist, or vampire because you're just making a fool of yourself.

    General CommentI always laugh when people call bands sellouts. Everybody sells out. That is how you make a living. Hey sandiejemkins, look around your house and look to see how much name brand stuff you own. You are probably drinking a Coke or Pepsi as you write this.

    General Commentsandiejenkins. They sound great and no they are not sellouts they just sound different. If you don't like them anymore quit cryin like a little girl and find a new band to like.

    My InterpretationI really think he's comparing vampires, to raping someone.
    Like, it's a metaphor. :)

    think about it that way people, I mean seriously?
    If it was just about vampires, i really think thats kind of silly.
    but if he just came out and said "THIS SONG'S ABOUT RAPE!!!"
    then it would kinda have no importance to the song,
    the meaning would be kinda blunt.

    but thats just me :)

    Song MeaningI think this song is a reference to the scream movie. The reason for this is just before they play this live in the LBC video they play what I believe is to be an exerpt from the movie and it makes sense.

    Caught up in this madness too blind to see
    Woke animal feelings in me
    Took over my sense and I lost control
    I'll taste your blood tonight

    The slasher man from the movie has done something that was terrible and cant see that he has done wrong
    He has an animal feeling to keep on hunting the prey
    He can no longer control the urge to kill
    He will murder a victim tonight

    You know I make you wanna scream
    You know I make you wanna run from me baby
    but know it's too late you've wasted all your time

    The woman is wanting to scream but doesnt want to
    She keeps running from him
    But she realises that she has wasted her time when its too late


    Relax while you're closing your eyes to me
    So warm as I'm setting you free
    With your arms by your side there's no struggling
    Pleasure's all mine this time

    She closes her eyes before she dies
    He's killing her, setting her free
    Hes killed her with her arms by her side and theres no struggling
    He gets the pleasure out of killing her


    Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring
    Cover me, unwanted clemency
    Scream till there's silence
    Scream while there's life left, vanishing
    Scream from the pleasure unmask your desire
    perishing

    The slasher is cherishing the pleasuring feeling
    The women/people are getting covered and their bodies have given up but they dont want to
    They keep screaming until he kills them
    They keep screaming while they have life left in them, while he kills them
    The people are screaming and the killer is showing the pleasure of killing them


    We've all had a time where we've lost control
    We've all had our time to grow
    I'm hoping I'm wrong but I know I'm right
    I'll hunt again one night

    He's saying that everyone has lost control during their lives
    That all people have had time to grow
    Dont quite get third line
    He'll hunt again

    Some live repressing their instinctive feelings
    Protest the way we're built don't point the blame on me

    The people that live are using their instincts to guide them
    People are protesting how were builts and theyre blamming him for doing what hes doing

    Scream, Scream, Scream the way you would
    if I ravaged your body
    Scream, Scream, Scream the way you would if I ravaged mind


    The people are screaming
    like they would if he was either raping them or killing them slowly
    I dont really get 4th line

    So thats my opinion to the meaning. feel free to correct me it is always good to learn by mistakes.

    General CommentIt's definately about losing control sexually. I don't know if I'd go as far as to call it rape, though. The speaker knows he's wrong but can't help it. He also knows it will happen again.

    General CommentI have a feeling this was a fantasy for most of you.
    The reason Shadows says that live is because it FEELS and SOUNDS that way.
    He was marketing with the female audience so that they'd be more into it, because it's no secret that (insert controversial statement here.)
    I can't blame you for thinking that it was about rape, or vampires; but, noooooo. Although, they probably have respect for the good vampires.
