violate lyrics – machine head

i want you to know this
i want you to know just what i feel
you told me through sacred lies
i told you once with bloodshot eyes
you told me don’t ask
just stay away from me

you told me it’d be alright
i told you once, then told you twice
you can’t face
can’t you face me

i won’t pray for you
i can’t pray for you
because you took it away
because you took it from me

first verse

thought i could never ever f*ckin’
find another
get a m*th*f*ckin’ chance again
because the power
is the rage that can devour
gotta make that fear descend

without it, you ain’t sh*t
and you ain’t sh*t to me
berating, a scathing
grave indignity

i see the look
inside your eyes
it makes me sick
defiling innocence
is how you get
your kicks
you violate, and
then you think

yourself a man
you violate, and
then you call
yourself a man

don’t come my
don’t care what
you say
pray you f*ckin’
before you feel
