"Leave It Alone" as written by David Draiman, Dan Donegan and Mike Wengren....
I can't control my anger and
I've been about to explode
Far too many times
I've seen my dreams becoming violent
Every time that I see you
No matter how you try to define it
I have been broken too many times
Too much emotion too long confined has
Weakened the wall that protects you

Ease your mind, this moment will pass if you just
Leave it alone, leave it alone every time
My dysfunction is on your mind
When you find that you're at odds with your desire
Just leave it alone, leave it alone every time
My destruction is on your mind
Before you find that you have
Tested my resolve one too many times

I am a stranger, you know I've been
Pressed to the wall far too many times
Stop your behavior or you will find
My murderous nature surround you
Others have wandered over the line that
Awaken the monster too many times
Leave it unspoken and you will find an
End to the violence if you can

Ease your mind, this moment will pass if you just
Leave it alone, leave it alone every time
My dysfunction is on your mind
When you find that you're at odds with your desire
Just leave it alone, leave it alone every time
My destruction is on your mind
Before you find that you have
Tested my resolve one too many times

Ease your mind, this moment will pass if you just
Leave it alone, leave it alone every time
My dysfunction is on your mind
When you find that you're at odds with your desire
Just leave it alone, leave it alone every time
My destruction is on your mind
Before you find that you have
Tested my resolve one too many times

    General CommentI don't think the World goes always about love , relationships etc... You can interpretate this song in so many other ways. I think that everyone in life gets the feeling someone is using you , making you feel bad about yourself ... I found myself in this song. Everyone in us has a dark side that we try to hide but when u get very , very mad IT awakes and takes control. You say things you don't want , even hurt people ( physicly and mentaly - sorry for english not my native ) ... You all have sometimes been put in a corrner not knowing what to do and act impulsive ... Like the beggining of the song he says IVE BEEN ABOUT TO EXPLODE FAR TOO MANY TIMES... People like to f*** with your brain all the time and its naturally you'll deffend yourself ... So its better not to allow anyone to bully you or making you feel sorry for your own existence ... LET THE BEAST WITHIN YOU TAKE CONTROL DONT TAME IT AND LET IT GO!!!! You'll then finally get the feeling your ALIVE!!! Thats my point of the view of the song... And again sorry for my ENGLISH!!! Post more opinions i like to see your point of the view of this song ! :D

    General CommentI Think its about how in a relationship the other person was always finding somthing wrong "my disfunction is on your min" and wants to cause nothing but trouble while david is just asking for a little time to let it pass?

    My InterpretationI see this as a prequel and possibly an alternate reality to This Moment: the warning against the final offense, before the second person goes too far. The second person is close to laying on the straw that will break the camel's back, whereas in This Moment, the last straw has already been played out.

    Like Gfox Desolution, I see many possibilites for the lyrics' application, but until I read Carrie by Stephen King, it never resonated as strongly as it does now. It could easily be Carrie White speaking to her peers and her mother, warning them to stop treating her like a freak/laughingstock or Hellspawn (respectively), because she is on the verge of her breaking point. Find a copy of the book and read it if you have not already, and tell me what you think.
