I found no people for killing time
So I found time for killing people
I found no rhythm I would rhyme
So I'm the rhythm for the people

And if you wait on me
I'll be free one day
And if you wait on me
I'll be free one day

Contemplating genocide
Upstairs waving, scared of people
Afraid that feeling hasn't died
It gets lonely for my people

And if you wait on me
I'll be free one day
And if you wait on me
I'll be free one day
And if you wait on me
I'll be free one day
And if you wait on me
I'll be free one day

People always drifting out of pain
They cannot hold on to nothingness
Fingers bleed on the concrete walls
Leaving only one nail for someone to see
Only one nail screaming to me
So many fingers pointing at me
So many fingers pointing at me
So many fingers pointing at me

I found no people for killing time
So I found time for killing people
I found no people for killing time
So I found time for killing people
Killing people, killing people, killing people

I found no people for killing time
So I found time for killing people
Killing people, killing people
Killing people, killing people

    General CommentI think this has more to do with being really depressed or really upset/mad/angry. Sometimes, I don't want to deal with people, and I just want to sit in my room or house and listen to music and brood. Those are the times I "hate" people.

    General CommentI'm thinking this is about an oppressive dictator, like Stalin, Hitler, or Hussein.

    "I found no people for killing time
    So I found time for killing people "

    Nobody loves him, so he kills people out of spite. No true reason, just hate because all he's recieved is hate.

    "Contemplating genocide
    Upstairs waving, scared of people"

    He's standing above his people waving, as he contemplates killing them all. His own fear of death urges him to kill innocent people.

    "People always drifting out of pain
    They cannot hold on to nothingness
    Fingers bleed on the concrete walls
    Leaving only one nail for someone to see
    Only one nail screaming to me
    So many fingers pointing at me
    So many fingers pointing at me
    So many fingers pointing at me"

    He kills people, and his country is brought down. His regime ended. The fingers are pointed at him, because no one else is to blame. He stripped his people of everything ("They cannot hold onto nothingness"). He's mutilated his people ("Fingers bleeding on concrete walls").

    "And if you wait on me
    I'll be free one day"

    Finally, he's locked away forever, yet has hope that someday he'll get out and unleash his anger once again.
