Familiar with his kind, he’ll beat someone down for fun
He’s got an ax to grind and he’ll target anyone
Brass knuckles in his pocket, steel-toed shoes
Live of the party when you factor in booze
Familiar with his kind, he’ll target anyone

Violence, when will they learn?
Time’s running out and the tables will turn
The days have been numbered and your number’s coming up

He’s got a group of friends and they’re all like minded guys
The fun never ends and the party, it never dies
Somebody crossed their path at the worst time to do it
Toes to the temple and he didn’t live through it
He’s got a group of friends, they’ll target anyone

Violence, when will they learn?
Time’s running out and the tables will turn
The days have been numbered and your number’s coming up

Senseless, when will they learn?
Time’s running out and the tables will turn
The days have been numbered and your number’s coming up

The charge what? Homicide
Alone he took the fall
His friends all testified
They weren’t there at all
And he cried like a baby
When his sentence was passed
For himself and not the victim
But this victim was his last
Yes, it was his last victim

Still familiar with his kind, too many of them left behind
Up to all that he once was, no other reason, just because
Too many incidents, none are isolated
Each coincidence is closely related
Familiar with his kind, he’ll target anyone

Violence, when will they learn?
Time’s running out and the tables will turn
The days have been numbered and your number’s coming up

Senseless, when will they learn?
Time’s running out and the tables will turn
The days have been numbered and your number’s coming up
