"Threshold" as written by Kerry King and Jeffery John Hanneman....
I don't want to see, I don't want to hear
I don't want to feel anything can't you understand
Everything I do doesn't stem from you
It doesn't have a fucking thing to do with you
I just want to die throw it all away
Never have to feel again the way you make me
Lose my fuckin' mind all the fuckin' time
Can't control the violence that's spewing from me
Take it

I can't control the rage that flows from me
I can't shut it down it overwhelms me
I can't stop the rage that flows from me

Can't stop the
Violence I love it
No one's immune to hate that flows from it
Infectious I feed on it
Every fucking endless day
You're either on my side or else
You're in my way

No one stands a chance when I'm lashing out
Random hate there is no other way
It's my discipline it's my way of life

Never wanted bliss never wanted you
Never needed anyone I've polluted
Everything you feel everything you are
Everything you'll ever be you repulse me
It's always about you always come at me
With shit I can't identify you know it makes me
Lose my fuckin' mind all the fuckin' time
Can't control the violence that's spewing from me

Take it
Can't stop the
Violence I love it
No one's immune to hate that flows from it

Infectious I feed on it
Every fucking endless day
You're either on my side or else you're in my way
No one stands a chance when I'm lashing out
Random hate there is no other way
It's my discipline it's my way of life

    General Comment"Threshold" is about reaching your limit in any given aspect, with a person in a situation where you’re about to break. You're about to blow-up," says King.

    General CommentThis song makes me feel validated in lashing out. It is about reaching the end of your tolerance and beating ass. I hope you punks take note. I cant stop the rage that flows from me! I cant shut it down it overwhelms me.

    General CommentI love Threshold, this song tells you that it's okay to hate, it's okay to be fucking angry. Some of us prefer it that way. Don't give me a DSM and tell me that I need to take pills or to find Jesus to calm me down. Maybe I like being angry or hating you for the fucking worm that you are and that's all there is to it.

    General CommentSlayer being played in a club? Now that's what I call one kick-ass club.

    I think this song criticizes how countries use violence to solve their problems. Think about it.

    General CommentHahaha, quiffporn, you're one funny bastard.
    I love this song too, I think it's funny how a lot of these hardcore kids who claim Slayer is the ultimate metal band have probably never listened to this (just check out the replies for this, and a single, like South of Heaven or Raining Blood).
