"I See Red (Version 2)" as written by and Al Jourgensen....
I See Red x 6

I try to sleep the night
I try to ease the tension
I try to justify
All of my good intentions
I go right up the wall?
Blurry? like a work? of art?
I close my eyes and I...
I see red

I see red x 4

I try to wash my hands
Of all the misery
But after seeing red
It always follows me
I could be in the shower
I could be in my bed
I could be anywhere
All I see is red

I see red x 6

I hear the brother screaming
I know the ?
I know his history
Because I killed his family
It's in the name of science
That's what the paper says
It's in the name of...
Cause all I see is red

I see red x16

I try to wash my hands
Of all the misery
But after seeing red
It always follows me
I could be in the shower
I could be in my bed
I could be anywhere
I'm still seein' red

I see red

I try to sleep the night
I try to ease the tension
I try to justify
All of my good intentions
I go right up the wall?
Blurry? like a work? of art?
I close my eyes and I...
I see red

I see red x 16

Note: The version performed at early shows on the 1986 tour changed the verses to:

I try to sleep the night
I try to ease the tension
I try to close my eyes
I can hear one dimension
I go right up the wall?
Blurry? like a work? of art?
I close my eyes and I...
I see red

I hear the brother screaming
I know the things they say
I know his history
Cause I killed his family, say
It's in the name of progress
That's what the paper says
I don't care what I read
Cause all I see is red
