"(Compassion) As Skull Fragments On The Wall" as written by Robert Avery, Nathan Gray, Charles Istvan, Matthew Krupanski and Joshua Latshaw....
Front and center...
Ten percent pulled apart vilified tolerance but only to patronize
Hang a noose like a crucifix nagles high
Leg breaking for your sheep becomes suicide
Sticking tp your guns provokes an ugly picture
Of a child gagging on those same guns
Transforming more self loathing youth
For queers to corpses in two seconds flat
You've got correction take for every transgress
Immediate approval distress
Call our your icon from its whitewashed tomb
Your perversion your blame your truth
Trigger finger prints in a pool of blood
Pray for us that our sins will come undone
Now that you've decided in all of your tirade
That we are not worthy to live
You will burn in hell for everyone you've killed
For every drop of lood that you have ever spilled
Diseased and deranged
Became a draining mass of death at your request
In your prayers in your speeches you clain our death

    General CommentI'm not sure what this song is about exactly, I get the feeling it's about some homophobe murderer tho... especially bc of the line that goes "from queers to corpses in 2 sec. flat" and the line about burning in hell for everyone u've killed and so on... I'm really not sure... but it's definately about killing... I still have a gut feeling it's about killing gays tho.. any other ideas? I'll be checking back later to see what other ppl think...

    General CommentI don't think it is about actual murder but, i think it is about how people say being homosexual is bad and you will go to hell etc.{in your prayers in your speeches you claim our death"}. This makes people that are homosexual feel so bad about who they are that they then take their own lives {"transforming more selfloathing youth, from queers to corpses in 2 seconds flat."}.

    General Commentthis song is actually about how the lead singer of boy sets fire feels about homosexuality, because he himself is a homosexual

    General Commentdamn, this song is powerful. it seems to be about how christianity breeds homophobia. this isn't a topic that i've seen any other hardcore band (or any band, for that matter) tackle. i love boysetsfire...

    General CommentI think you're all sort of right with this one but if you registered on their message board you would know for sure!

    It's about how there are those companies that try to turn gays back into straight people and how it doesn't work and the kids end up killing themselves because they feel like they don't belong anywhere.

    By the way, the singer's bisexual, not gay.

    General Commenti think this song is describing the way the American Christian right regards homosexuality and what it's like growing up gay in America (transforming more self loathing youth from queers to corpses).
