Always acting like you're puzzled
Looking for the missing piece
But there is no peace
While you're pounding on my door

So I invite you in
But you're stomping on my porch again
Asking me about the puzzle
Looking for the missing piece
There is no peace

You've got a will to write but you're too uptight to let go
You don't enjoy anything you can't control

So you still haven't filled that puzzle
Did you find any clues to the crime
I'll bet you need another answer
Do you need to waste my time

'Cause you don't understand
Until I blend it black
Until you find your piece
You'll be pounding on my door
Stomping on my porch

You can't leave anything to spirit or chance
You choke the rhythm but you still want to dance
You choke the rhythm but you still want to dance
Everything fully explained

    One of my two favorite Sentridoh songs. I'm pretty sure "piece" and "peace" can be used interchangeably aside from the puzzle metaphor. The only line I'm not sure I got right is "Until I blend it black." Anyone hear something different?

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
