This is bull shit | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/10/13
I love this band also and really loved this song until I read lyrics. It disturbs me that some act like oh ok murder that's ok that's so much better than rape. WTF come on. This is all bs and if you ever had someone you love be raped or murdered by a human turn animal you might feel diff. U can justify lyrics all u want I understand I want to also but truth is it really is a sick thing to Rock out to
It's Probably Rape | Reviewer: Best A7X Song | 5/27/12
"If you're horny enough to think it's about rape then i wont stop you from letting your sick minds from rattling through your think skulls"
This made me laugh. Hard. Because being addicted to hunting and murdering others is soooo much LESS sick than rape? Actually I think rape (in addition to murder) is a more likely possibility. "Scream from the pleasure unmask your desire" suggests rape. Most, but definitely not all, rapists think rape is wrong, but they rationalize their own actions, so that it's not "rape". Most believe that the person they're raping is unwilling at first, but that they'll start to like it later, which makes it consensual, and thus morally acceptable, i.e. "unwanted clemency". Few people like to think of themselves as being "the sleazy bad guy"-archetype. Most people have a self-bias, where they rationalize, romanticise, or plain gloss over their flaws. Joseph Mengele, likely one of the evilest men of the modern age, is a great example of this. That fits very closely with this line. The victim might be screaming because it's unwanted at first, but the rapist believes that's he's pleasuring her, but her later screams will be from pleasure, she just needs to "unmask her desire" because she secretly likes it. Whatever M. Shadow say it's about is meaningless. How do you think people would react if they admitted it was about rape? This is North America: we can glorify killing endlessly without consequence, but they would get a lot of hate if they were accused of glorifying rape. So you can't rule out self-serving motivations, especially in such a commercialized band.
song meaning | Reviewer: Peter | 2/12/12
I think it's about a guy whose gf cheated on him because he never made a move on her, so then he became furious: "woke animal feelings in me," raped her, killed her because of how she liked being raped: "scream from the pleasure unmask your desire," and vows to do it again sometime to some1 else because of how good it felt to express himself.
Uhhhh | Reviewer: Synyster Gates is soooo sexy :3 | 1/2/12
This song is about a guy addicted to killing. Just cuz the word pleasure is in it doesn't make it sexual. If you're horny enough to think it's about rape then i wont stop you from letting your sick minds from rattling through your think skulls
Well.... | Reviewer: DearGodforyou | 12/11/11
I think this song is about sex or rape. It sounds like someone is talking about how he raped someone and how hunts for his victums. It could be about someone raping someone and then killing them... Rip Jimmy I miss you soo much, we all do miss you. <3
Song meaning | Reviewer: Dustin | 10/2/11
I saw them last night and they played this...but before when Shadows was talking to the crowd he said, "a song basically about a dude killing a chick."
For so long I thought it was about like, rape or something. Turns out I was fairly far off. Thank you Shadows for clearing it up.
Ooooooh ;P | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/14/11
He is a masochist in the song. He can no longer contain it and possibly takes it too far. But he doesn't care if she's into it (he of course thinks she is but is repressing), he's going to do what he wants. Sex, rape, murder... It's probably all the above. Awesome song anyway. ;)
My View | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/1/11
This song is about the main character finding pleasure in killing but not wanting to do it anymore. Like an a addiction he can't get rid of. All you really need to read is the chorus to realize this. The verses suggest sexuality in the killing but I don't think they were intended to. In the chorus it says:
"Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring
Cover me, unwanted clemency"
Clemency is basically relief. Relief from suppressing his addiction. Then:
"Scream till there's silence
Scream while there's life left, vanishing"
Explaining the woman dying. (kinda obvious)
"Scream from the pleasure, unmask your desire
I think this third scream is the killer. This is explaining his desire to kill and how his actions are self-destructive (perishing)
So to sum up my opinion: It's about a man who's addicted to killing people and wants to break the addiction but doesn't think he ever will.
Me my self | Reviewer: DragonStar | 8/27/11
I always thought this song was about how; a killer was trying to stop the cravings of wanting to kill but not being able to do so and there for just giving into the feelings. Knowing now that he has done it there is no way that he can stop from doing it again in the future even though he wishes that he could stop. You can tell that he is talking about murder due to the fact that he says scream while there's life left. If it was about rape, I wouldn't be able to see him using that line. Rape or not rape, life is always left, wither it's shatter and broken or not. I love the song and listen to it after a bad day at work with a Cheshire smirk on my face.
This song is definately about Rape | Reviewer: Brando Commando | 7/15/11
He states the pleasure's all mine this time. It's not about killing or kinky sex. It's definately about the pleasure of rape. Many people don't realize this, but a girl who has been raped in the past is a little more well guarded in relationships. Sometimes they are even less guarded because they hate themselve and blame themselves. Like the quote: Scream scream scream the way I would if I ravaged your mind!
This song isn't about sex! | Reviewer: Glyn-dawg | 7/1/11
This was the first A7X song i listened to and i loved it. But everyone keeps saying that its about rape, which it isn't! M. Shadows said that the song was about the pleasure of killing, not about sex. Anyways, I love it! R.I.P. Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, We hope you are happy in the woods becoming a knife master with your army of stallion ducks. <3
foREVerandalways | Reviewer: Lilly | 5/31/11
I've been a huge a7x fan for 6 years now and to me this song is about crazy sex and how humans are like animals. "Some live repressing their instinctive feelings protest the way we're built don't point the blame on me" like how if someone wanted to try something crazy and didnt because there too focused on what the human thing to do is. and we were built to be animals, survival of the fittest and shit like that were established now and have countries, government and communities but deep down were all animals ready to fuck shit up lol. if you think im wrong ok cool but thats what the song means to me.
kinky | Reviewer: JoJo | 5/15/11
I dont think its so much about rape as it is about kinky sex. If youve ever had a partner that likes to be tied up, or if you like it yourself, youll know what im talking about. Theres a very strange sense of power that comes from that kind of play.
well.... | Reviewer: sandy g | 4/9/11
I've loved a7x from the first time I heard them and find.it unbelievable that some people don't know who they are. And while comparing this to twilight sucks, I'm glad its somehow giving this amazing band more fans.
