It makes me wish I was a banger
I'd come and retaliate
I tend to avoid impulsive gangster attitudes
Cause they will blind you

It's gonna eat you up
It's gonna drag you down
Gonna get all that you ask for

Affected many lives
Left a void so wide
Gonna get all that you want

Looking for a saviour
Not one who saves
Been looking for a saviour
One to retaliate

There's no need for forgiveness
It's already said and done
But don't let revenge consume and take hold of you
Cause it will blind you

It's gonna eat him up
It's gonna drag him down
He's gonna get all that he asked for

Affected many lives
Left a void so wide
Gonna get all that he wants

Looking for a saviour
Not one who saves
Been looking for a saviour
One to retaliate

Open up

You affected many lives
You left a void so wide
Gonna get all that you ask for

It's gonna eat you up
It's gonna drag you down
You're gonna get all that you want

Looking for a saviour
Not one who saves
Been looking for a saviour
One to retaliate

You've sworn to retaliate
One to retaliate

Open up

    General Commentthis song is Bad Ass. i'm a huge dredg fan so i hope my opinion isn't skewed by my loyalty. although it works for me. the music, the lyrics, everything warrants air play. but if the mainstream doesn't take hold, once again their loss. hoping the June 6 released album matches the catchiness and all around BadAssness of this tune.

    General Commentok sooo heres my input take it for whats it worth, he sings "looking for a saviour, not one who saves, looking for a saviour, one to retaliate" this means to me that the normal saviours actually save ppl but the way this saviour saves him is by being the opposite of a saviour to someone else. but at the same time he says revenge consumes u blinds u drags u down etc. and continues to say that itll affect soo many lives and leave a void so wide, that means if revenge is taken then more than just the person getting the revenge will be affected... he also sounds like he wants the revenge to happen he just doesnt wanna be blamed for it. "open up" as he says alot refers to him trying to be open to find that saviour.

    all in all song means REVENGE AFFECTS MORE THAN JUST THE PERSON U WANT TO BE AFFECTED BY IT, BUT FINDING SOMEONE TO TAKE THE FALL, ur "saviour", IS HOW REVENGE SHOULD BE DELIVERED
