"I'll Have To Warn You, This Won't Be Quick" as written by and Ryan Donald/hackenson Zimmerman....
So many things that I, that I wish I would've said
if only she knew how much i feel for her now
So many things that I wish, if only she knew how much i feel
it's too late. It's too late, you've taken her from me

Don't say a word (I'll take my time with you)
In honor of her

I can't get her picture out of my head
you say you didn't mean it
you say you're really sick

That means nothing to me, i want your life for hers.
you'll never get away with this
I want your life for hers

Come on and rape my spirit
just like you did to her
come on and rape my spirit
make me feel ugly

Don't say a word
you murderer (I'll take my time with you)
in honor of her

This is a fantasy of mine: to avenge the death of my love
it's all that I could want
it's all that I could ask for

you'll never get away with this
I want your life for hers

So many things that I, that I wish I would've said
if only she knew how much i feel for her now
So many things that I wish, if only she knew how much i feel
it's too late. It's too late, you've taken her from me

Officer...
He should have known he had this coming.

    General CommentTo me this song is about a guy that was in love with a girl, but he never got to tell her how he felt because another guy raped and murdered her.

    The guy is really upset [as you naturally would be], and he wishes death upon the person that did that to her. He is upset she never got to know how he felt about her.

    "He should have known he had this coming."
    I think the guy eneded up killing the guy out of vengenace. The "he should have known he'd had this coming" means that the guy that raped and murdered the girl should've known that karma would come and get him.

    General CommentThis makes me think Greeley are the best hardcore lyricists ever. How the hell did they make such a colorful scenario.

    My InterpretationI feel this is a song that is an inward feeling that he wants revenge on himself for what he feels like could have been
