Oh, the violence.
The ocean beckons with it's gaze.
Pulling me beneath the waves.
Their fury is second to none!
Oh, the violence.
It's clawing at my burning skin.
Filling my heart with it's sin!
Human reason is washed away!

Am I the first to be fooled by your dirty little trick?
I guess I should have seen this coming.
I will not forget!
I will not forget!
Human reason is washed away!

I'm the one who has to swallow water!
That's what I get for chasing after you!
You should be hanging by your neck, swinging there silently!

I can't stop the bleeding!
Tell me that you want me.
(If you need me.)
Tell me that you love me.
(If you want me.)
Your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion.
(Telling me you want me.)
(Do you want me?)
(Telling me you want me.)
(Do you love me?)

It is quite clear you despise me by showing your face here.
And you never even told me why you disappeared!
Why you disappeared!
Human reason is washed away!

I'm the one who has to swallow water!
That's what I get for chasing after you!
You should be hanging by your neck, swinging there silently!

I can't stop the bleeding!
Tell me that you want me.
(If you need me.)
Tell me that you love me.
(If you want me.)
Your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion.
(Telling me you want me.)
(Do you want me?)
(Telling me you want me.)
(Do you love me?)

A bone chilling cry erupts!
I've seen those eyes, but not that smile.
I've seen those eyes, but not that sinester smile.
I've seen those eyes, but not that blank stare.
I've seen those eyes, but not that smile.
The tides of sin are stained with blood!

I can't stop the bleeding!
Tell me that you want me.
(If you need me.)
Tell me that you love me.
(If you want me.)
Your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion.
(Telling me you want me.)
(Do you want me?)
(Telling me you want me.)
(Do you love me?)

You will be sorry when he spills the blood from your throat!
You'll be torn limb from limb!
Tramp!
There will be hell to pay!

    Guy above, this album has nothing to do with annabel it is about dante's inferno and the nine levles of hell.

    To the guy above, the three areas in violence are: violence against others, violence against one self, and violence against god... As for the song, since this album is a prequel to the emptiness, it sounds like him just being pissed at annabel, and wanting to kill her.

    Great song - possibly one of the best ones off the album- not as hardcore as i tend to like, but very good anyway.

    The meaning behind this has to do with the 7th circle of hell - the circle of violence. There are 3 ways to enter i believe, violent life, suicide (violence against self) and murder.
