"Violence (Enough Is Enough)" as written by and Jeremy Wade Mckinnon Andrew Robert Wade....
I've been feeling like everything is for nothing.
In fact I've never felt so goddamn small.
Always searching for the brighter side to find the strength for when I fall.
I'm still believing that life has a meaning.
Can't cope with thinking that there's not.
I'm so divided that I try to hide it, it's the only real thing that I've got!

So when the world outside can't see whats wrong and right.
People can't understand the reasons that we fight.
Somethings gotta give.

Violence give me violence,
Cause they say we're the worthless ones.
Substance give me substance.
Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down.

Violence give me violence,
Cause they say we're the worthless ones.
Substance give me substance.
Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down.

You can call this a warning.
Its a warning that we're drowning in our malcontent.
Tear me down like a cancer,
What's your answer?
We're different and it makes you sick.
There is a sadness here,
on every corner,
it's in our hearts dear god don't wanna trouble you much,
but we all need to know when enough is enough.

So when the world outside can't see whats wrong and right.
People can't understand the reasons that we fight.
Somethings gotta give.

Violence give me violence,
Cause they say we're the worthless ones.
Substance give me substance.
Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down.

Violence give me violence,
Cause they say we're the worthless ones.
Substance give me substance.
Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down.

You only get one chance,
and that's one too much.
What's the world gonna say when I call your bluff punk?
Bow your head.

Violence give me violence,
Cause they say we're the worthless ones.
Substance give me substance.
Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down.

Violence give me violence,
Cause they say we're the worthless ones.
Substance give me substance.
Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down.

    Song MeaningJeremy said what this song means in an interview.

    "I was just trying to talk about different perspectives from the world and why people do terrible things to each other. It started out, to me, feeling like you’re helpless. It felt like everything is so much bigger than you—there are people above you no matter where you go. That kind of control of what you can and can’t do. It’s really not meant to be political as it might sound—that’s just never been our band. But it’s that feeling that things are out of your hands. I wanted it to have this dark, ominous feeling."

    General Comment2012 has been a year which much media highlighted violence. When this song is viewed with the violent events that have been happening in mind, it takes an ironic twist into the mind of a killer. Could this song be an attempt to explain the perspective of the violent murderers who have been committing evil acts in this last year? Hopefully the next ADTR album includes more songs like this one.
