This song was supposed to be about vengeance.

To me, personally, I believe the difference between vengeance and revenge is that vengeance is a righteous act of defense, and revenge is just pure hatred based on a grudge that's consumed your life. I don't know where I am, but I know that my initial intent was vengeance, but I think the fact that I was so scarred and torn apart about the incident in this song, it turned me crazy, abhorrent and hence, led me to revenge. This song is part one of a two-part duo (the second song will be "Victim See, Killer Do"). It describes the pain and frustration from not being able to protect the things that are close to you. In this song, the lonely protagonist had a friend-- a child whom he looked over for his neighbors for many years. The protagonist recently lost his long-distanced relationship girlfriend due to her being a fake, backstabbing, compulsive liar, his family is nothing but a group of hood rats underneath one roof and he has not had a real friend in 6 years. The loneliness swelled up inside. He caved into himself and was imprisoned within the confines of his mind, his lost soul and broken heart. When he saw his child friend, a young boy of 11 years, be shot to death by a pack of gangsters on his way home, not even 10 feet from his house, the protagonist lost his mind and based his life on avenging the death of his friend and mortified parents. He initially began because he felt that God was taking too long and Karma was in agreement with his God's schedule. The minutes felt like hours, the hours felt like days and the days felt like months. Eventually a month felt like a year. His mind was distraught and corrupted. Hence, this song is the end result of the occurrence.

From The "Straight Jacket" album.
