As the Innocent
Take the Punishment
That was really meant
For every one of you

Claim Immunity
From the misery
Bark your right to be
Wielding your weapons

Turned a blinded Eye
As the Children died
Lost within your lie
Evil defines you

How cann you not grieve?
I cannot believe
What has come to be
The land reeks of Madness

I can feel it growing inside me
Something that i would never
Dare speak
Containing the anguish depletes me
Unleashing the Anger redeems me

Oh - Thoughts won't stop, I cannot breathe
Oh - The hardest Part was to believe

It amuses me
That you fail to see
What has come to be
A paranoid Nation

You cry "Terrorist"
With a pounding Fist
As your kind assists
Those who would end us

Your version of the truth
Will only benefit you
If you could only view
The Dead all around us

You have brought it on
You're the guilty ones
Now We're running from
Our very Extinction

I can feel it growing inside me
Something that i would never
Dare speak
Containing the Anguish depletes me
Unleashing the Anger redeems me

Oh - Thoughts won't stop, I cannot breathe
Oh - The hardest Part was to believe

Solo CBK

I can feel it growing inside me
Something that i would never
Dare speak
Containing the Anguish depletes me
Unleashing the Anger redeems me

Oh - Thoughts won't stop, I cannot breathe
Oh - The hardest Part was to believe

Oh - Thoughts won't stop, I cannot breathe
Oh - The hardest Part was to believe

    The last posting, is, imo more accurate. Seeing some of Heafy's comments on American Politics, it's clear he is a naive lefty. This song basically accuses law abiding gun owners of being the source of violence in this country. Again, completely naive and demonstrative of what happens when you rely on the mainstream meida and pure emotion for your intel. Having said that. I love this band. The music is incredible. Heafy's musical talent is undeniable. Trivium is just great!
    I hope that Heafy someday opens his mind and his eyes to reality. I once thought like he does, and became frustrated with the ridiculous inconsistency of the left wing doctrine. It's so liberating being able to think and see things clearly. Until then we will continue to suffer as a nation.

    In my opinion, when it talks about the terrorist attacks and the attempts to kill hundreds of people at a time, It's speaking of those left, those who have lost loved ones in those attacks. To me that's speaking of the fact that they can't do anything about it, so the anger they might have at the people who have created the threats and can't do anything to get vengeance against them, so it builds up and they snap, thus being redeemed in their own eyes by unleashing all of the pain and anger that has built up. When it speaks of not being able to believe, to me that means they can no longer believe in the very people who have sworn to protect them, and in a way in humanity itself, and when they finally snap and lash out at those around them, they begin to believe in themselves because they see what they are doing as rightous, and redemption for those they lost. Just how I see it, based on the state of a few people I have known who have gone through this type of pain and suffering.

    If you look closely at the lyrics like for example, "You cry Terrorist with a pounding fist as your kind assists those who would end us", "Turned a blinded Eye As the children died lost within your lie Evil defines you", "That you fail to see What has come to be A paranoid Nation", and "Bark your right to be Wielding your weapons". Matt's basically talking about how all these terror attacks like for example The Boston Marathon bombing or the Connecticut elementary school shooting and how after these terrible tragedies happen repeatedly the Government tries to take away these assault rifles and other dangerous weapons to stop this from happening, but the people don't want to give up their guns. All they do is watch these innocent people die again and again, and that this world can't heal itself.
