Blood is my life
Blood is the road
Every time I have to write another hate song
This is the last great hate song

Scorned is this life
Scarred is my soul
Every time I have to write another hate song
This is the last great hate song

Let's get it out, let's get it straight
I wish you were dead

Don't mistake kindness for weakness
Front and center for another ass-kicking
Don't mistake
survival for forgiveness
Front and center for another ass-whooping
I am the dog that forever bites back
Forever on attack, watching my back
I am the dog that forever bites back
Forever on attack, watching my back

Die and die now
I wish you were dead

Feast on life
The beast, the road
Every time I have to write another hate song
This is the last great hate song

Let's get it out, let's get it straight
I wish you were dead

Don't mistake mercy for forgiveness
Front and center for another life lesson
Don't forgive, damn sure don't forget
Damn sure won't forget
I am the dog that forever bites back
Forever on attack, watching my back
I am the dog that forever bites back
Forever on attack, watching my back

Die and die now
I wish you were dead
Die

Curses from my life
Curses from my soul
This is the last great hate song
This is the last great hate song

Damn sure won't forget, die
Damn sure won't forget, die
Damn sure won't forget, die
Damn sure won't forget, die

    I can't believe I am the only person to comment on this song, it's awesome.

    I think the whole song is pretty much explained within the line "This is the last great hate song".

    I fucking hate Coal Chamber, their songs are totally gay new metal shite, but Dez suprised me with DevilDriver, their album is pure heavy metal, so I have got to give props to him for that, my faith in him is restored.

    I love this song, it can't be more hate than this and it has a pretty clear meaning.

    Coal Chamber is a great band so shut the fuck up! But Devildriver is great to and I would really like to see Dez live.

    I've found that this is a great song to play really really loud while driving through walmart parking lot with the windows down. Anyways Devildriver IS the band that makes me proud to be part of the american metal scene. Can't wait for their new stuff to come out...its supposed to be alot more brutal.

    CC = mrrrgh. I mean, they were the first nu metal and thus aren't all corporate like most nu metal.

    And Lamb of God is another great american metal band, the guitar solo is revived in One Gun and Ashes of the Wake (instrumental). Get Ashes of the Wake that album is sick.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
