Verse 2


You play your petty little mind games

Your self rightous inner child


Is about to meet my rage

Verse 3


Now I see you with a new man


Looking cozy and all in love


But what really comes to mind is


Does he truely know what you're made of


I'd like to try and tell him


Or give him some kind of sign


He's in for a harsh wake up


Cause his hearts on barrowed time




- CHORUS -


- Guitar solo (same as before) -


- Chorus over and over till the cops show up!!!!!



This is the first song I wrote with a guy called Nate back in one of my old bands called Raksasha. I wrote verse one and two as well as the music. Nate wrote the other 2 verses.

We are talking about reforming the band after 3 years of barely speaking and even more rarely having anything nice to say. I'll put some of our old recordings on our new myspace page as soon as I have it up.

Re: Victim (warnning: contains some strong language)

Thanks I'm glad you liked it! No it wasn't me singing. In those days I never sang, I only played guitar and maybe some back up vocals on stage. I didn't start singing until a couple years later in American Chaos Theory. But you are right Nate put in a great vocal performance. <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_cool.gif" border=0 alt="Cool">

Oh no!!!!! <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_eek.gif" border=0 alt="Shocked">  I went to edit the title on the advice of a friend and it all fell apart!!!!!!!! If some one could repair it or tell me how I would appreciate it so much.

Yes ACT like James said that has mosh pit written all over it.Just like the ones at Woodstock '94.fun to play on acoustic as well.think I'll do it again LOL....Badeye.

one caper after another

Re: Victim (warnning: contains some strong language)

OK Mike - I repaired what you fixed . . . editing a previously posted song is tricky because all the 'conversion voodoo' coding is present.  It looks 'all purdy like' now.  Tallyho!   James
