  • You starve your children on neglect
    Then feed their bellies with fear
    Concussion bat to the brain
    Witness to a battered mother

    Your abuse will end right here
    No longer will your family fear
    A gunshot to head of trepidation
    My promise if you ever lay a finger

    Just look at the scars you make
    Your terror makes your kids break
    A broken home just as you were raised
    With fist raised up to your children

    Your abuse will end right here
    No longer will your family fear
    A gunshot to head of trepidation
    My promise if you ever lay a finger

    This battle is on all
    You've made beautiful
    Now hateful
    You wretched life wrecker
    Abuser
    Now suffer

    Open fire
    On the desire of the man
    Open fire
    With strife we'll strike down the hand
    (Open fire, build the pyre)
    If I can't make you see the damage you've made
    (Open fire, build the pyre)
    I'll make you wish you'd never been alive x2 Writer/s: COREY BEAULIEU, JASON SUECOF, MATTHEW HEAFY, PAOLO GREGOLETTO, TRAVIS SMITH

  • Anthony from Mason, OhWow, that's funny because metallica's entire first album was stolen from Dave Mustaine. So.... In that case you can be my guest and open up a nice cold bottle of go f--k yourself. Your just mad because no one f--kin cares about what you've done in life. Trivium is sweet.
  • Seth from Peebles, OhThis song is really good. I don't care if they copied it it is still a great song.
  • Danny from Atlantic City, NjTrivium sucks they steal riffs because they're to lazy to make their own music anyway Trivium sucks
  • Martin from Columbus, Ohwill you guys not compare them to metallica they are no where near and will never be close to where metallica was and i love this song as well its my favorite by them but get on youtube and search trivium sucks and there is proof that they plagurized this song
  • Chris from Pasadena, MdI LOVE THIS SONG! i love that its got a meaning too, Its not just a meaningless amazing song, its a meaningful super amazing song thats amazing to play on drums!
  • Brooke from Otway, OhWhat about Ignition?...good song as well...
  • Evan from Otway, OhThis song reminds me of Master of Puppets, since it has so many riffs. Its nice to see that there are still bands capable of doing what Metallica, Megadeth, ect have done to metal. TRIVIUM ROCKS!!
  • Mike from Mason, OhThis song is so fun to play, and the guitar harmony work is very well done. Trivium Rocks!
