  • I've been feeling like everything is for nothing
    In fact I've never felt so god damn small
    Always searching for the bright side to find the strength for when I fall
    I'm still believing that life has a meaning
    Can't cope with thinking that there's not
    I'm so divided that I try to hide it
    It's the only real thing that I've got!

    So when the world outside can't see what's wrong and right
    People can't understand the reasons that we fight
    Something's gotta give

    Violence, give me violence
    'Cause they say we're the worthless ones
    Substance, give me substance
    Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down

    Violence, give me violence
    'Cause they say we're the worthless ones
    Substance, give me substance
    Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down

    You can call this a warning
    It's a warning that we're drowning in our malcontent
    Tear me down like a cancer, what's your answer?
    We're different and it makes you sick
    There is a sadness here, on every corner
    It's in our hearts, dear God
    Don't wanna trouble you much
    But we all need to know when enough is enough

    So when the world outside can't see what's wrong and right
    People can't understand the reasons that we fight (reasons that we fight)
    Something's gotta give

    Violence, give me violence
    'Cause they say we're the worthless ones
    Substance, give me substance
    Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down

    Violence, give me violence
    'Cause they say we're the worthless ones
    Substance, give me substance
    Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down

    You only get one chance and that's one too much
    What's the world gonna say when I call your bluff, punk?

    Bow your head

    Violence, give me violence
    'Cause they say we're the worthless ones
    Substance, give me substance
    Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down

    Violence, give me violence
    'Cause they say we're the worthless ones
    Substance, give me substance
    Heavy lies the crown as I cut you down Writer/s: ANDREW WADE, JEREMY WADE MCKINNON, KEVIN PATRICK SKAFF, NEIL S. WESTFALL, TOM DENNEY
