You know I feel so violent,
Just want to break some glass,
Every day I pray it'll be my last
Turning to a blank wall wondering what to do?
Turning to a caliber .22
Every day he starts the same old fight.
And every day it just gets worse by night.
If I hit the streets I think I'll be alright.
But until I do, I won't be safe tonight.
Safe tonight
Every day I remember all that lead to this.
And every day don't ya know I get a little more pissed.
Banging on myself because I just don't care.
There's nothing left for me back there
He's twisted and violent,
I don't know what to do.
I left there for the streets last night
Thinking only of you, be safe tonight
Safe tonight
It all falls down on to me, like a baseball bat.
It hurts me, haunts me, hurts me, haunts me
I never want to go back.
I'm twisted tonight, and I don't know what to do?
I'm twisted tonight, I want to be with you, I want to be with you,
I want to be with you, be with, be with, be with you..
Safe tonight

    General CommentNot really....I think this song is about a teenager who's life is pretty much crap because of an abusive parent figure, and the "I wanna be with you" part is referring to someone(possibly a girlfriend) who makes all the pain go away by loving him in a way no one else can

    General Commenti agree with the whole girlfriend figure but it just seems so odd for Anti-Flag to do a song involving a girl like that. The only other song they did that mentioned being into a girl was "She's My Little Go-Go Dancer." I don't know what it means but i still love it

    General CommentYes, it does seem odd for Anti-Flag to do a song involving a girl like that. However, i would have to agree with Toologist. I love this song.

    General CommentMAYBE that last bit "i want to be with you" is about stockholm syndrome. thats when a victim of kidnap or something gets emotionally attached to their kidnapper. i dont know what im saying, im just looking for an alternative view

    General CommentMy theory about this song is;
    a girl lives in an abusive home and is suicidal and the only way she can be safe is by being away from whoever abuses her. When she runs away she always thinks about that one person who is always there for her in a loving way!!!\
