"You Against You" as written by and Jeff Hanneman Tomas E. Araya....
I had your back, but it's no use
False accusations are on the loose

Know what?
It makes no sense that you tied your own noose
You never felt the shores decay
Your perfect world is ending today

So what?
I wouldn't have it any other way

Is this your paradise?
You think you thought this through?
'Cause when you rolled the dice
That house came down on you

Don't care what you do or say
The suicide begins today
Have fun in paradise
This hell is just for you

You against you
Shitty time to make a stand, all without a master plan, just you
You against you

So how's your paradise
Hindsight just laughs at you
With conflict comes the price
That price weighs heaviest on you

I guess I should say thanks
Dissention in your ranks
Your panic lit the fuel
Now it's you against you

You against you
When you're looking for a fight, when I'm showing up tonight
Shitty time to make a stand, all without a master plan, just you
You against you

These seeds are what you sow
Never should have lit that fuse
Enjoy your paradise
This hell is just for you

You against you
When you're looking for a fight, when I'm showing up tonight
Shitty time to make a stand, all without a master plan, just you
You against you

    My InterpretationNic ,why the fuck had you to post your shitty comment 4 freaking times? as far as i understand the song speaks in general about someone digging his own grave .Due to his ego picking fights , he bit more than he could chew. he is going self destructive and doesnt give a fuck about it

    My InterpretationThis song has many meanings, but it prioritize mostly about how evil society has become. At first couple of lines you see it's someone who had been betrayed by false accusations. Someone enjoying the fruit of evil he had committed till one day all hell breaks lose. He is literally facing his alter ego. He is facing his own evil this day. Hence you against you. "Shitty time to make a stand, all without a master plan, just you" We all know how criminals have masterplans and how they play God, hiding under cyberscreen, hiding under scope, eyes of common people. Richest criminals are always getting it their way. They think they are some kind of badass but it is a false believe. When he has to face all those knucleheads all alone he is horrified. But who is he actually fighting? He is fighting against his crimes in one way or another if you believe in karma.. look at it this way.. why did I say this is about evil society? Look at all we do. No matter how much we admit or not(mankind is full of good hypocrites) we have all done wrong against others one point or not. We have cheated, mistreated, judged, done all kind of wrong. Some men and women go further seeking worldly pleasures, thinking they are some kind of God. They are free. They can do anything they want. But when all those evil haunts them back.. you know. Another thing, we beat up each other everyday. There is a constant fight going on within us thanks to our huge ego promoted by society. We are all fighting against ourselves. How do we even think about stopping war when all we love is war war war war. Basically war. They say men of war only realize the value of life when they get old.. beaten dogs. So basically, being a rude-ass self-absorbed persona ain't serving you or society. It is just promoting fights. More fights. And men must realize the real enemy when they wanna fight. Sometimes it's just our own selves. For a criminal, his own desires and inability to overcome hatred become his enemy. I cannot be 100% correct but that's what i can relate to.
