Lead in your chest, halo in water
Watch me drill holes in my head
Misunderstood? Meet me at midnight
With your lovers heart in a box

We'll watch how the world pushes forward
Running like insects from God
You only want to be near him
So you join in his crimson jihad

'cause they cast out the dark
With 2 stones and a spark
And your seconds away from redemption

And you're one with the dead
and your breakfast in bed
'til your seconds away from redemption

Ohh-oh, seconds away

April came on, the pain was like knives
Digging right into my feet
The echoes of agony breaking my body
'til most of it's merely a lie

We'll watch how the world pushes forward
Running like insects from God
You only want to be near him
So you join in his crimson jihad

'cause they cast out the dark
With 2 stones and a spark
And your seconds away from redemption

And you're one with the dead
and your breakfast in bed
'til your seconds away from redemption

Stand alone where you are
Stand alone where you are
Stand alone where you are
Hey-yeah

Ho-ohh

'cause they cast out the dark
With 2 stones and a spark
And your seconds away from redemption

And you're one with the dead
and your breakfast in bed
'til your seconds away from redemption

Ohh-oh, seconds away
You're seconds away
You're seconds away
You're seconds away

    General CommentIt's about a cult.
    A religious cult.

    "You only want to be near him, so you join his crimson jihad" is about the cult leader, and the blind devotion the members have.

    "most of this is merely a lie" is about the cult leaders views and junk.

    "Meet me at midnight with your lovers heart in a box" - again with the devotion. And a direct refferance of how cult's steal you away from your loved ones.

    I could be wrong... but hey. You know. ;)

    General CommentI think its part of the artist's long battle with the belief of god, about how people want to be near god so they believe in him, but most of it is a lie.
