Shackler’s Revenge Lyrics from Chinese Democracy by Guns and Roses

Shackler’s Revenge is a new song from the Guns N' Roses album,
Chinese Democracy. Shackler's Revenge was not played live during the 2006/2007 GNR world tour so the first chance to hear it as a finished article was with it’s placement in the Rock Star 2 video game in September 2008.

Shackler’s Revenge Lyrics

I've got a funny feelin'
There's something wrong today
I've got a funny feelin'
And it won't go away

I've got an itchy finger
An' there'll be hell to pay
I'm gonna pull the trigger
An' blow them all away

Don't ever
Try to tell me
How much you care for me
Don't ever
Try to tell me
How you are there for me

I don't believe there's a reason
(I don't believe it)
I don't believe there's a reason
(I don't believe it)

I've got a wicked demon
His hunger never fades
I've got an empty feelin'
I won't be home today

Don't ever
Try to tell me
How much you care for me
Don't ever
Try to tell me
How you are there for me

I don't believe there's a reason
(I don't believe it)
I don't believe there's a reason
(I don't believe it)

No one is stoppin' you
From doin' what you want to do
No one is stoppin' you now
Stoppin' you now

I don't believe there's a reason
(I don't believe it)
I don't believe there's a reason
(I don't believe it)

Silk Worms has been doing the rounds apparently. But it didn't make the cut for Chinese Democracy. Not sure of the veracity of these lyrics....

Silk Worms Lyrics by Axl Rose

Listen motherfuckers to this song that should be heard
Thrown down in the gutter, it's more than you deserve
Kneeling fucking virgin, you know that's what you are
Pussy for a maggot, isn't that a shock

What can I do? With a bitch like you
You know that it's true
All I have I ask of you
I'll be dammed
If it's not true
A bitch like you

Get your head down in the sky
Fucking little schemer got yourself a broken heart
Syphilitic preachers baby I know who you are
Parasitic demons sucking acid through your heart

What can I do? With a bitch like you
You know that it's true
All I have I ask of you
I'll be dammed
If it's not true
A bitch like you 

Street of Dreams Lyrics by Guns N Roses Chinese Democracy

Street of Dreams Lyrics by Guns N Roses Chinese Democracy

The Street of Dreams was originally known as The Blues. It was showcased by Guns N Roses on their 2006 /2007 World Tour. It opens with a Dizzy piano riff wherein Axl starts the verse with the band following after. One could argue that The Street of Dreams is inspired by Axl Rose's known admiration for Elton John-style piano ballads.

The Street of Dreams lyric by Axl Rose

All the love in the world
Couldn't save you
All the innocence inside
You know I tried so hard to make you
Oh, to make you change your mind

And it hurts too much to see you
And how you left yourself behind
You know I wouldn't want to be you
Now there's a hell I can't describe

So now I wander through my days
And try to find my ways
To the feelings that I felt
I saved for you and no one else
And though as long as this road seems
I know it's called the street of dreams
But that's not stardust on my feet
It leaves a taste that's bittersweet
That's called the blues

I don't know just what I should do
Everywhere I go I see you
Though it's what you planned
This much is true
What I thought was beautiful
Don't live inside of you
Anymore

I don't know just what I should do
Everywhere I go I see you
Though it's what you planned
This much is true
What I thought was beautiful
Don't live inside of you
Anymore

What this means to me
Is more than I know you believe
What I thought of you now
Has I thought that was true before
Were lies I couldn't see
What I thought was beautiful is only memories

Oh oh oh
What'd I tell you
Oh oh oh
That's
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Inside of you

We've tried really hard to find out but there's no word yet from from Axl's people over the rumour that he really enjoyed reading this interesting collection of Han Solo facts.

Crash Diet GNR Chinese Democracy Era Lyric


Crash Diet GNR Chinese Democracy Era Lyrics

This song was long rumoured to be on the Chinese Democracy Track Listing however it did not make the final cut.

Crash Diet by Axl Rose

Crash diet of reds'n'ludes
A shot of vitamin C and a bottle of booze
Too stupid to live with nothin' to lose
In your one track mind now
Where's that leave you?

Drink'n'drive white lightning faster baby
Takin' your last ride
Now better be so careful or you'll be dead before you time
Sorry you took mother's car now

Tears in my eyes, baby please don't go
You've had one too many, havin one for the road
fresh from detox, fresh from jail
Took your rehabilitation and you drove me to hell

Drink'n'drive white lightning faster
Takin' your last ride ya,
Better be so careful or you'll be dead before your time
Sorry you took mohter's car now

Too soon, you thought ... ?!
Too late for the pressure and strain
Too bad for those who don't believe it
Ruby street still calls your name

[guitar solo]

Itchy trigger finger and the race to be alive
Smokin' a cig while you drink'n'drive
With no control in your life ahead
You're never gonna see if you wind up dead

Drink'n'drive white lightning faster
Takin' your last ride
Better be so careful or you'll be dead before your time
Drink'n'drive white lightning baby
It's always on your mind
Push or pull your limits baby, do it one more time
Break it down
Break it down
Somethin''s changin', somethin''s breakin'
You gotta be a brother, 'coz ?! your family
maybe one more time Oh make it
Sweet mystery, Ooohhhh
If you don't care about yourself
Would you please leave me alive
Oooohhhh...
You gonna
You gonna drink'n'drive
Oooohhhhh, Yeeaaah!

Catcher in the Rye Lyric from Chinese Democracy by GNR




Catcher in the Rye Lyrics from Chinese Democracy by GNR


The Catcher in the Rye is a reference to the famous American novel by J. D. Salinger. Set in the 1940s and is noted for it's liberal use of profanity and portrayal of sexuality and teenage angst. Sounds like a good a reason to use in it a song lyric then....

Catcher in the Rye could also be a reference to John Lennon's murderer, Mark Chapman. Chapman was carrying a copy of the book when he shot the Beatle.

Queen guitarist Brian May had recorded a guitar part for Axl some years prior to the release of Chinese Democracy. This was ultimately not used, much to May's disappointment who said "Well, it is a shame, perhaps ... I did put quite a lot of work in, and was proud of it. But I could understand if Axl wants to have an album which reflects the work of the members of the band as it is, right now."
Catcher in the Rye lyric by Axl Rose
When all is said and done
We're not the only ones
Who look at life this way
That's what the old folks say
But every time I'd see them
Makes me wish I had a gun
If I thought that I was crazy
Well I guess I'd have more fun
(Guess I'd have more fun)

Oooh
The Catcher in the Rye again
Won't let you get away from him
(Tomorrow never comes)
It's just another day…
Like today

You decide
'Cause I don't have to
And then they'll find
And I won't ask you
At anytime
Or long thereafter
If it's cold outside
As I'm imagining
It to be

Lana nana na na na
Lana nana na nana

Oooh
The Catcher in the Rye again
Won't let you get away from him
(Tomorrow never comes)
It's just another day…
Like today

When all is said and done
We're not the only ones
Who look at life this way
That's what the young folks say
As if they'd ever change
That's not who am I to say
But every time I'd see them
Makes me wish I had a gun
If I thought that I was crazy
Well I guess I'd have more fun
It's what used to be's not there for me
And ought to find someone that belongs insane like I do

On an ordinary day
Not in an ordinary way
All at once the song I heard
No longer wouldn't play for anybody
Or anyone
That needed comfort from somebody
Needed comfort from someone who cared
To be
Not like you
And unlike me
And then the voices went away
From me
Somehow you set the wheels in motion
It Haunts our memories
You were the instrument
You were the one
How a body took a body
You gave that boy a gun

You Took our innocence
Beyond our stares
Sometimes the only thing
We counted on
When no one else was there

Chinese Democracy Lyrics Guns and Roses Chinese Democracy Album

Chinese Democracy Lyrics Guns and Roses Chinese Democracy Album



Chinese Democracy is the first track off the GNR album of the same name. In typical Axl Rose fashion it is a rant and it appears to be directed at the Politburo who rule China in an undemocratic way as China has a One Party Voting system. Chinese Authorities do not tolerate dissent with the Party view and it's citizen's rights such as free speech are often curtailed as a result. China is slowly waking up to the reality that it needs to become more of a free market economy and such a situation require personal freedoms.

Chinese Democracy opens with police car sirens, introduces hushed Chinese voices and then adds the effect of the wind blowing over the Great Wall.



Chinese Democracy, Lyrics by Axl Rose

It don't really matter
Gonna find out for yourself
No it don't really matter
Gonna leave this thing to
Somebody else

If they were missionaries
Real time visionaries
Sittin' in a chinese stew
To view my dis-infatuation

I know that I'm a classic case
Watch my dis-enchanted face
Blame it on the Falun Gong
They've seen the end and you can't hold on now

'Cause it would take a lot more hate than you
To end the fascination
Even with an iron fist
More than you got to rule the nation
When all I've got is precious time

It don't really matter
Guess I'll keep it to myself
Said it don't really matter
It's time I look around for
Somebody else

'Cause it would take a lot more time than you
Have got for masturbation
Even with your iron fist
More than you got to rule the nation
But all we got is precious time
More than you got to fool the nation
But all I got is precious time

It don't really matter
I guess you'll find out for yourself
No it don't really matter
So you can hear it now from
Somebody else

You think you got it all locked up inside
And if you beat 'em enough they'll die
It's like a walk in the park from the cell
Now you're keeping your own kind in hell
When your great wall rocks, blame yourself
When their arms reach out for your help
And you're out of time

If the World, Lyrics by Axl Rose

If the world would end today
All the dreams we had
Would all just drift away
You know there's nothing more to say
If the world would end
And our love slipped away

I never knew the way that you looked at me
Would ever mean so much to me
But in my heart I found
The feelin's that I've never shown
And now they've
Got the best of me

If the world would end today
All the dreams we had
Would all just drift away
You know there's nothing more to say
If the world would end
And our love slipped away

I never thought all the love I was lookin' for
Could ever be so close to me
But you're the only one
I have ever loved that has ever loved me
And now you got the best of me

If the world would end today
All the dreams we had
Would all just drift away
You know there's nothing more to say

If the world would end today
All the dreams we had
Would all just drift away
You know there's nothing more to say
If the world would end
And our love slipped away

This I Love GNR Lyrics Chinese Democracy

This I love Lyrics are from
Guns N Roses new album Chinese Democracy which was released November 2008.

This I Love by Axl Rose



And now I don’t know why
She wouldn’t say goodbye
But then it seems that I
Had seen it in her eyes
And it might not be wise
I’d still have to try
With all the love I have inside
I can’t deny
I just can’t let it die
Cause her heart’s just like mine
And she holds her pain inside
So if you ask me why
She wouldn’t say goodbye
I know somewhere inside
There is a special light
Still shining bright
And even on the darkest night
She can’t deny
So if she’s somewhere near me
I hope to God she hears me
There’s no one else could ever make me feel
I’m so alive
I hoped she’d never leave me
Please God you must believe me
I’ve searched the universe and found myself
Within’ her eyes
No matter how I try
They say it’s all a lie
So what’s the use of my
Confessions to a crime
Of passions that won’t die
In my heaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaart
So if she’s somewhere near me
I hope to God she hears me
There’s no one else could ever make me feel
I’m so alive
I hoped she’d never leave me
Please God you must believe me
I’ve searched the universe and found myself
Within’ her eyes

Robyn Finck Guitar Solo played here

So if she’s somewhere near me
I hope to God she hears me
There’s no one else could ever make me feel
I’m so alive
I hoped she’d never leave me
Please God you must believe me
I’ve searched the universe and found myself
Within’ her eyes
And now I don’t know why
She wouldn’t say goodbye
It just might be that I
Had seen it in her eyes
And now it seems that I
Gave up my ghost of pride
I’ll never say goodbye

Here's the lyric to GNR's new song, Scrapped which is off Chinese Democracy.

Scraped lyrics W. Axl Rose, Caram Costanzo, Buckethead)

Don't you try to stop us now
I just refuse
Don't you try to stop us now
'Cause I just won't let you

Sometimes I feel like
The world is on top of me
Breaking me down with
An endless monotony
Sometimes I feel like
There's nothing that's stopping me
All things are possible
I am unstoppable

Some may convince you
No one can break through
I'm here to tell you
You're worth
More than they tell you

Don't you try to stop us now
I just refuse
Don't you try to stop us now
'Cause I just won't let you

Sometimes I feel like
My life's a catastrophe
Can't understand why
It seems like it has to be

Sometimes I feel like
It's all opened up for me
Nothing's impossible
I am inconquerable

No one can make you
Do what they want to
You know you're stronger
Than the lies that they tell you

Don't you try to stop us now
(I'd give anything to know)
I just refuse
Don't you try to stop us now
(I wouldn't have never made it so far)
'Cause I just won't let you

Believe in yourself

Some may convince you
No one can break through
You know you're stronger
Than the lies that they tell you

Don't you try to stop us now
(I'd give anything to know)
I just refuse
(How you live with yourself)
Don't you try to stop us now
(I would have never made it so far)
'Cause I just won't let you
(All by myself)

Better Lyrics Chinese Democracy Guns N Roses

Is Axl Rose doing all he can do be a better man? Who knows but here's the lyrics to the GNR song Better which is supposedly going to be on the Chinese Democracy album.

Better, Lyrics by Axl Rose from Chinese Democracy


No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, 
better

No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, 
better

The hardest part 
This troubled heart 
Has ever yet been through now

Was heal the scars 
That got their start 
Inside someone like you now

For had I known 
Or I'd been shown 
Back when how long it'd take me

To break the charms 
That brought me harm
And all but would erase me

I never would 
Or thought I could
No matter what you'd pay me

Replay the part
You stole my heart
I should have known you're crazy

If all I knew 
Was that with you
I'd want someone to save me

It'd be enough
But just my luck
I fell in love and maybe

All that I wanted was...

Now I know you better
You know I know better
Now I know you better

So bittersweet
This tragedy 
Won't ask for absolution

This melody 
Inside of me 
Still searches for solution

A twist of fate 
A change of heart 
Cures my infatuation

A broken heart 
Provides the spark 
For my determination

No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, 
better

No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, 
better

All that I wanted was...

Now I know you better
You know I know better
Now I know you better

I never wanted you to be so full of anger
I never wanted you to be somebody else
I never wanted you to be someone afraid to know themselves
I only wanted you to see things for yourself

All that I wanted was...

Now I know you better
Now we all know better

All that I wanted was...

If I were you 
I'd manage to 
Avoid the invitation

Of promised love 
That can't keep up 
With your adoration

Just use your head 
And in the end 
You'll find your inspiration

To choose your steps 
And won't regret 
This kind of aggravation

No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, better

No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, better

Here's a live version of Better from when Robyn Finck was touring with GNR.

There Was A Time Lyrics from Chinese Democracy By Axl Rose

Broken glass and cigarettes
Writin' on the wall
It was a bargain for the summer
An I thought I had it all
I was the one who gave you everything
The one who took the fall
You were the one who would do anything
The one who can't recall
Where she was while she was sleepin'
In another woman's bed,
Or the doctor's or the lawyer's
Or a stranger that she met
If there's nothing' I can gain from this
Or anything at all
It'd be the knowledge that you gave me
When I thought I'd heard it all

It was a long time for you
(It was a long time)
It was a long time for me
(It was a long time)
It'd be a long time for anyone
(It was a long time)
Looks like it's meant to be

Social class and registers
Cocaine in the hall
All the way from California
On the way to your next call
To those non-negotiations
To simulate a cause
For the betterment of evils
And your ways around the laws
That keep you up and sitting pretty
On a pedestal or bed
And now you're sleeping like an angel
Nevermind who
you gave head *
If there's something I can make of this
Or anything at all
It'd be the devil hates a loser
And you thought you had it all

It was a wrong time for you
(It was the wrong time)
It was a wrong time for me
(It was the wrong time)
It was the wrong time for everyone
(It was the wrong time)
Looks like I've got to see for myself

If I could go back in time
To the place in my soul
There all alone
Lonely tear drops, ooh
Are calling you
But I don't want to know it now
'Cause knowing you
It won't change a damn thing
But there was a time

Yeah, there was a time
Didn't want ta know it all
Didn't wanna know it all
N' I don't wanna know it now
Yeah, there was a time
Didn't want ta know it all
Didn't wanna know it all
N' I don't wanna know it now

Oh, I would do anything for you
There was a time
I would do anything for you
I would do anything for you
There was a time

There was a time
I would do anything for you
Yeah there was a time
I would do anything for you
Didn't want ta know it all
Didn't wanna know it all
N' I don't wanna know it now
I would do…
Didn't want to know it all
Anything for you
Didn't wanna know it all
N' I don't wanna know it now

There was a time…
There was a time


* Note: The album cover art booklet has the line"never mind who gave you head" but the CD version of the There Was A Time has the first lyric.

Prostitute Lyrics  by Guns N Roses from Chinese Democracy

How many Prostitutes have the various members of GNR slept with over the years? Not many I guess with all that free groupie love...

Prostitute Lyric from the album Chinese Democracy by Axl Rose


Seems like forever and a day

If my intentions are misunderstood
Please be kind
I've done all I should
I won't ask of you
What I would not do
Oh, I saw the damage in you
My fortunate one
The envy of youth

Why would they
Tell me to please those
That laugh in my face?
When all of the reasons
They've taught us
Fall over themselves
To give way

It's not a question
Whether my heart is true
Streamlined
I had to pull through
Look for a new
Beginning on you
Oh I got a message for you
Up and away
It's what I gotta do
Forgive what you have
For what you might loose

What would you say
If I told you that I'm to blame?
And what would you do
If I had to deny your name?
Where would you go if I told you
I love you
And then walked away?
N' who should I turn to
If not for the ones
You could not save

I told you when I found you
If there were doubts you
Should be careful and unafraid
Now they surround you
And all that amounts to
Is love that you fed by
Perversion and pain

So if my affections
Are misunderstood
And you decide
I'm up to no good
Don't ask me to
Enjoy them
Just for you

Ask yourself
Why I would choose
To 
Prostitute myself
To live with fortune and shame?
Oh yeah
When you should
Have turned to the hearts
Of the ones
That you would not save

I told you
When I found you
All that it amounts to
Is love that you fed by
Perversion and pain

Madagascar Lyrics Chinese Democracy Guns N Roses

Madagascar was debuted by Axl Rose at the 2002 MTV Video Awards. The show was notable for one of the first real times Buckethead was seen in the Public Eye.

Madagascar is epic in a
November Rain sense, but slightly less dramatic and overblown.


The lyrics of Madagascar refer to not being told what to do any more and that resonates with the struggles of Martin Luther King. Stirring words from him speaking are added into the bridge, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

Madagascar samples a bit from from the Paul Newman film,
Cool Hand Luke about 'failure to communicate' - GNR also famously included this reference in their song, Civil War. Madgascar also contains elements from the films"Missipi Burning", "Braveheart", Casualties of War and "Se7ven"

Madagascar Lyric by
Axl Rose

I won't be told anymore
That I've been brought down in this storm
And left so far out from the shore
But I can't find my way back, my way anymore

Oh no I won't be told anymore
That I've been brought down in this storm
And left so far out from the shore
Oh that I can't find my way back, my way anymore

Oh, I..

Forgive them that tear down my soul
And bless them that they might grow old
And free them so that they may know
That it's never too late

For the many times what seemed like a memory
I searched and found the ways 
You used to lure me in
Oh, I found ways
Oh, why it had to be
Mired in denial and so afraid

If we ever find it true
That we have the strength to choose
I'm free of all the chains
We have together

(Quotes by 
Martin Luther King and samples from films)

"What we've got here is failure to communicate"

"Well, all men betray, all lose heart"

"Black men and White men together at the table of brother hood. I have a dream"

"Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

Oh I won't be told anymore,
(If we ever find it true)
That I've been brought down in this storm
(That we have the strength to choose)
And left so far out from the shore
(I'm free of all the chains)
Oh that I can't find my way back, my way anymore
(We have together)

Oh no I won't be told anymore,
(If we ever find it true)
That I've been brought down in this storm
(That we have the strength to choose)
And left so far out from the shore
(I'm free of all the chains)
Oh that I can't find my way back, my way anymore
(We have together)

The Blues Lyrics Guns and Roses, Chinese Democracy

The Blues Lyrics Guns n Roses, Chinese Democracy

The Blues was showcased by Guns and Roses on their 2006 /2007 World Tour. It opens with a piano riff wherein Axl starts the verse with the band following after. It was renamed Street of Dreams when the album was released.

The Blues Lyrics

All the love in the world couldn't save you
All the innocence inside
You know I tried so hard to make you
Ooo I wanna make you change your mind

And it hurts too much to see you
And how you left yourself behind
You know I wouldn't want to be you
Now there's a hell I cant describe

So now I wander through my days
Trying to find my ways
To the feelings that I felt
I saved for you and no one else

And though as long as this road seems
I know its called the street of dreams
But that's not stardust on my feet
It leaves a taste that's bittersweet
That's called the blues

I don't know just what I should do
Everywhere I go I see you
You know its what you planned, this much is true
What I thought was beautiful, don't live inside of you anymore

I don't know just what I should do
Everywhere I go I see you
You know it's what you planned, this much is true
What I thought was beautiful, don't live inside of you anymore

What this means to me
Is more than I know you believe
What I thought of you now
Has cost more that it should for me

What I thought was true before
Were lies I couldn't see
What I thought was beautiful
Is only memories
Ah ah ah ah ah x4

Chinese Democracy Lyrics - Guns n Roses new Album

Chinese Democracy Lyrics and Track Listing - Guns n Roses new Album

Chinese Democracy
has not spread far in China but Axl Rose's version of it certainly is spreading!

Guns N' Roses' last studio album release was 14 odd years ago with 1993’s punk covers album The Spaghetti Incident?. Expectations were high, with many fans worried about the quality of the album. The 2006 / 2007 world tour show cased the new songs, silencing much of the concern.

Confirming the release of Chinese Democracy, Axl's management said “The release of ‘Chinese Democracy’ marks a historic moment in rock ’n’ roll,”. Well it might be if it's any good.....

The song Chinese Democracy was released on October 23 October to radio stations across America.

Here's Chinese Democracy's cover art

IRS Lyrics Chinese Democracy GNR

IRS Lyrics Chinese Democracy GNR

IRS is a new song from Guns n Roses and the Chinese Democracy album. IRS stands for Internal Revenue Service which is the American Tax Collector.

Axl Rose debuted this song on the 2006/2007 World GNR Tour.

IRS Lyrics

Ah, ah
Is it true
What they say of you?

Gonna call the President
Gonna call a Private Eye
Gonna get the IRS
Gonna need the FBI
There's not anymore 
That I can do

All the reasons that you gave
I'd follow you
To where you'd lead 
And if that'd be 
The end of time, it's true

Wouldn't be the first time I been wrong
Wouldn't be the last 
I'm sure, I've known
With all the rumors I can tell
Some things didn't work so well
Well anyway, it feels the same

As when you first told me you were gone
So long ago but I still held on
Through all the motions, the love and the sex
And that's the truth, and here's the worst yet
Would it even matter the things that I'd say
You made your mind up and gone anyway
And there's no use now in draggin' it on
Shoulda seen it coming all along

Well it's true
I had
My doubts of you

Gonna call the President
Gonna call myself a Private Eye
Gonna need the IRS
Gonna get the FBI
Gonna make this a federal case
Gonna wave it right down in your face
Read it baby with your morning news
With a sweet hangover and the headlines too

I bet you think I'm doin' this all for my health
I shoulda looked again then at somebody else
Feelin' like I've done way more than wrong
Feelin' like I'm livin' inside of this song
Feelin' like I'm just too tired to care
Feelin' like I've done more than my share
Could it be the way I've carried on
Like a broken record for so long
And I do
Ooh, ooh

Gonna call the President
Gonna call a Private Eye
Gonna get the IRS
Gonna get myself the FBI

Oooh, what shall I do
If I… 
Gave my heart to you?
It's such a crime 
You know it's true

Gonna call the President
Gonna get myself a Private Eye
Gonna need the IRS
Gonna get the FBI
Gonna make this a federal case
Gonna wave it right down in your face
Read it baby with your morning news
With a sweet hangover and the headlines too

There's not anymore
That I can do

Shackler’s Revenge Lyrics Chinese Democracy Guns and Roses

Sheckler’s Revenge Lyrics Chinese Democracy Guns and Roses

Shackler’s Revenge is a new track from the Guns and Roses album Chinese Democracy. This song was not played live during the 2006/2007 GNR world tour so the first chance to hear it was with it’s placement in the Rock Band 2 video game.

Shackler’s Revenge Lyrics

I've got a funny feelin’ there's something wrong today
I've got a funny feelin’ and it won't go away
I've got an itchy finger and there'll be hell to pay
I'm gonna pull the trigger and blow them all away
Don't ever try to tell me, how much you care for me
Don't ever try to tell me, how you were there for me
I don't believe there's a reason (I don't, I don’t believe it)
I don't believe there's a reason (I sure, I don’t believe it)
I've got a wicked demon here somehow never fades
I've got an empty feeling
I won't be home today
Don't ever try to tell me how much you care for me
Don't ever try to tell me how you were there for me
I don't believe there's a reason (I don't, I don’t believe it)
I don't believe there's a reason (I sure, I don’t believe it)
I don't believe there's a reason (I don't, I don’t believe it)
I don't believe there's a reason (I sure, I don’t believe it)
No one is stopping you from doing what you want to do
No one is stopping you now, stopping you now

I don't believe there's a reason (I don't, I don’t believe it)
I don't believe there's a reason (I sure, I don’t believe it)
I don't believe there's a reason (I don't, I don’t believe it)
I don't believe there's a reason (I sure, I don’t believe it)

Rolling Stone gave some thoughts when the song leaked.
