Lyrics

    Saint Anger 'round my neck
    Saint Anger 'round my neck
    He never gets respect
    Saint Anger 'round my neck
    
         (You flush it out, you flush it out)
         Saint Anger 'round my neck
         (You flush it out, you flush it out)
         He never gets respect
         (You flush it out, you flush it out)
         Saint Anger 'round my neck
         (You flush it out, you flush it out)
         He never gets respect
    
              Fuck it all, and no regrets
              I hit the lights on these dark sets
              I need a voice to let myself, to let myself go free
              Fuck it all, and fucking no regrets
              I hit the lights on these dark sets
              Put down the noose, I'll hang myself
              Saint Anger 'round my neck
    
                   I feel my world shake like an earthquake
                   It's hard to see clear: Is it me? Is it fear?
    
                        I'm madly in anger with you
                        I'm madly in anger with you
                        I'm madly in anger with you
                        I'm madly in anger with you
    
    Saint Anger 'round my neck
    Saint Anger 'round my neck
    He never gets respect
    Saint Anger 'round my neck
    
         (You flush it out, you flush it out)
         Saint Anger 'round my neck
         (You flush it out, you flush it out)
         He never gets respect
         (You flush it out, you flush it out)
         Saint Anger 'round my neck
         (You flush it out, you flush it out)
         He never gets respect
    
              Fuck it all, and no regrets
              I hit the lights on these dark sets
              I need a voice to let myself, to let myself go free
              Fuck it all, and fucking no regrets
              I hit the lights on these dark sets
              Put down the noose, I'll hang myself
              Saint Anger 'round my neck
    
                   I feel my world shake like an earthquake
                   It's hard to see clear: Is it me? Is it fear?
    
                        I'm madly in anger with you
                        I'm madly in anger with you
                        I'm madly in anger with you
                        I'm madly in anger with you
    
         And I want my anger to be healthy
         And I want my anger just for me
         And I need my anger not to control
         Yeah, and I want my anger to be me
         And I need to set my anger free
         And I need to set my anger free
         And I need to set my anger free
         And I need to set my anger free
         Set it free!
     
              Fuck it all, and no regrets
              I hit the lights on these dark sets
              I need a voice to let myself, to let myself go free
              Fuck it all, and fucking no regrets
              I hit the lights on these dark sets
              Put down the noose, I'll hang myself
              Saint Anger 'round my neck
     
                   I feel my world shake like an earthquake
                   It's hard to see clear: Is it me? Is it fear?
     
                        I'm madly in anger with you!
                        I'm madly in anger with you!
                        I'm madly in anger with you!
                        I'm madly in anger with you!
                        I'm madly in anger with you!
                        I'm madly in anger with you!
                        I'm madly in anger with you!
                        I'm madly in anger with you!
