To The Rats Lyrics - Trivium

Review The Song (4)



You hide behind barricades,
Built of facades, you think you're safe

But someday we all will find you,
Come to where you work,
And fucking tie you.

Every lie
Shoved back
Down your throat
By our hands

A skull fuck
For every word
Just try to breathe
Don't fuck with this

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
sponsored links
And bury you in a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

Obsess as each second fades
In denial of your mind made
Still your jealousy precedes you
You're really in love
With all that I do

Every lie
Shoved back
Down your throat
By our hands

A skull fuck
For every word
Just try to breathe
Don't fuck with this

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you in a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

This is to the rats
This is to the rats

This is to the rats
This is to the rats

And your conscience
Still tears at you
You secretly
Want to be just like me

A skull fuck
For every word
Just try to breathe
Don't fuck with this

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you in a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you in a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

A bit of a stretch here... | Reviewer: Ben | 7/28/14

Not sure exactly what this song is about but the use of the word "rat" definitely makes it sound like Matt is singing from the perspective of a crooked, violent organization like the mafia. Could it be the government? I only wonder that because the album The Crusade includes a lot of political themes. Also at the time it was written the Bush administration was basically on a warpath trying to silence and discredit all the people with inside knowledge of their corrupt dealings. It's a bit of a stretch. But I think everyone kind of has their own interpretation but that's what I think about when I hear this song, the government just using its power to crush the opposition like the mafia murders anyone who rats them out. Great song no matter what, one of my favorite Trivium tracks. Very thrash, it has the spirit of 1986 but still has a great modern metalcore feel with the melody in the chorus.

Good song has inspired me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/19/12

Such a good song. I believe the song is about a snitch because rat also means snitch. I recently found out that someone in my house is a snitch and has caused me to lose someone i cared about. So now i am using this song as inspiration to get my revnge on the rat and mole that has caused this grief. Keep on writing kick ass songs trivium.

To The Rats Yet Another Great Thrash Song | Reviewer: Haydon | 2/17/08

Yes, trivum's song to the rats is one of the best singles on the album the crusade by far, it has some screaming from corey, and has amazing guitar, bass, and drums, this is a great song for anyone that loves thrash.
