• I'm a missing link, poolroom stink, I can't talk
    (Well that's too bad)
    What's going on, something's wrong, I can't work
    Can't go to school, the teacher's a fool, the preacher's a jerk
    (Well that's such a drag)
    Got nothing to do, street-corner blues, and nowhere to walk
    Violence, violence
    It's the only thing that'll make you see sense
    Gotta fight, nothing's right, livin' nowhere
    (That's so sad)
    Watch out for the gun, snake on the run, hide in my hair
    You keep your mouth shut, or you'll get cut. Haha - I like to scare
    (Bet you're so mad)
    I'm a battery louse, a superstar mouse, I don't care
    Get off my back or I'll attack, 'n I don't owe you nothin' (OK)
    Head for your hole, you're sick and you're old
    'N I'm here to tell you something
    Violence, violence
    It's the only thing that'll make you see sense
