“Words like violence, break the silence”…

revenge

~

You don’t know me…
Don’t know me at all…

Yet still pass judgement…
Sat high on the wall…

Away from reality…
In your ivory tower…

Spitting out words…
With a venomous power…

Casting your aspersions…
Making up cruel lies…

You mean nothing to me…
You’re dead in my eyes…

As the view you have…
Is so very twisted…

You never took the time…
Checked facts that existed…

Or understood my motives…
What makes me tick…

It really fucks me off…
You make me feel sick…

As I watch from afar…
Hearing what’s said…

Do you think I’m blind…
To the poison you spread…

You are just a throwback…
From a bygone age…

You belong in a prison…
Rotting in a cage…

Yet you walk free…
Alive and kicking…

But I wouldn’t care…
If you weren’t breathing…

And buried somewhere…
Deep underground…

In a wooden box…
Not making a sound…

As you don’t know me…
Don’t know me at all…

But my time is coming…
And I’ll watch you fall…

  1. One of my favorites, J…I know, I love them all..they are all brilliant. But this one, I can so relate to on a personal level. Love it.
    Love, love this cover of DM also. Haunting. Cheers, alex.

    • Thanks Alex – yeah, heard this cover by chance and knew I had to use it – the gentle haunting vocal contrasts the anger in the written words – so hopefully it worked – Cheers J

      • It was awesome. Worked so well together. Really loved the combination. I may like this version better than the DM…and the poem I just loved! Cheers!

  2. I feel this could be a powerful song! Stark and yet very expressive. Thank you for writing your rage! It needs to be done.
