Violence

Album: blink-182 (2003)
  • Six bottles went down the drain
    One hours waste of time
    I'd ask if you feel the same
    Still pushing that chance to try
    Your breath in this cool room chill
    Long hair that blows side to side
    You speak and make time stand still
    And each time walk right on by?

    Like violence you have me, forever, and after
    Like violence you kill me, forever, and after

    Can't count all the eyes that stare
    Can't count all the things they see
    She kills with no life to spare
    Just victims left to bleed
    One drink and the pain goes down
    Soft shadows lay by her feet
    Lay soft as you slowly drown
    Lay still while you fall asleep
    (Fall asleep)

    Like violence you have me, forever, and after
    Like violence you kill me, forever and after
    (And after, and after, and after)

    Like violence you have me, forever, and after
    Like violence you kill me,
    Like violence you have me, forever, and after
    Like violence you kill me

    Like violence you have me, forever, and after
    Like violence you kill me, forever and after
    Like violence you have me, forever, and after
    Like violence you kill me, forever and after Writer/s: Thomas Delonge, Mark Hoppus, Travis L. Barker

  • Erik from Willow Hill, Pai think that the two sounds are so different that it's hard to tell if it's for the better or not. i will say though, the self intitled album is a classic album that you can listen from beginning to end and you can't find a song you don't like or want to skip over.
  • Tom from Derby, Englandthis song is in a completely different genre to adams song which was a whole 2 albums before this. if you listen to enema of the state, adams song seems to be the only serious song on the whole album, whereas on the self titled album, blink have changed. for the better? il let you decide..
  • Kt from Edinburgh, ScotlandI first heard this song when i was on holiday in hong kong. now every time i hear it, it reminds me of hong kong.
    also, i think when mark is singing quietly behind tom's voice is kinda creepy.
  • Maria from Nowhere, Otherthis song is awesome. the part after the 2nd time the chorus is played, is my fav part of the song. its just too cool i love listening to it! aslo, i love when mark says "fall asleep" the second time... wow
  • Alex from Loveland, CoAdam's Song is better, but this one is good to.
  • Mike from Philadelphia, Pathis song kicks serious ass, its awesome, and it never gets old, but the ending gets annoying after a while
  • Chad from Bob, Negood song to sk* 2 but adam's song is still better!
  • Jade from England, Englandthis song is fantastic!
    blink rock forever!
