"Violent" as written by Amy E Millan, Torquil John Campbell, Christopher Allen Seligman and Evan Whitney Cranley....
People like you are
The reason I keep the good so close
And here you are so impressed with yourself
I see right through you
I see right through you

How many people do you plan to burn?
And all the damage left at every turn
You watched us struggle
And now your parched with a thirst for attention
To fuel the fire of your self obsession
We'll watch you crumble
You are the scum of the world
And we'll watch you fall

People like you are
The reason I keep the good so close
And here you are so impressed with yourself
I see right through you
And we intend to
Let the world know the truth
Let the world know the truth

You sit there and smile so smug in your skin
Second and third chances gone in the wind
I lied, and I begged, I swore I would change
What do expect of me!
Fuck
You'll never know true unity

Look around you
Look around you
Everyone is terrified
One wrong move
One wrong move
And their dream won't survive

You said
"You better keep your fucking mouth shut I gotta close mine, and no time to lose."
Bow to the stronger element
The truth will outweigh you
All it took was a spark right?

People like you are
The reason I keep the good so close
And here you are so impressed with yourself
I see right through you
I see right through you
People like you are the reason I keep the good so close

People like you are
The reason I keep the good so close
And here you are so impressed with yourself
I see right through you
And we intend to
Let the world know the truth
Let the world know the truth

Watch your back when your out on the town tonight
At every corner I lurk in the dark like the shadow on these very walls
Put the man on trial
I bet he turn colors that he's never shown.
Put the man on trial
I bet he turn colors that he's never shown.

Watch your back when your out on the down tonight
At every corner I lurk in the dark like the shadow on these very walls

Put the man on trial
I bet he turn colors that he's never shown
Put the man on trial
I bet he turn colors that he's never shown.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a relationship held together by sex. It's as though they've exhausted all forms of communication, and can only now take comfort in the physical aspects of love. Perhaps it isn't even the same love they once felt. They are together by circumstance, almost as though they know that they will be ruined if they seperate, but they are in a desperate situation by staying together; sex seems to be their only outlet.

    General CommentHaha whenever this song comes on in my car, I like to tell my friends "Oh, this is a song about kinky sex." And get the immediate "wtf?" faces. I love this song. I think it's more like to be really expressive with your emotions. Be aggressive. Take them to the max. At least, that's what I get from it.

    General CommentI work in the diamond mines
    we dig for things like you

    I love that line.

    It seems to me as though they both hate each other, but are still sexually attracted to each other. But there are many ways to take this song. It's like hot, angry sex. I love it.
