All the times that were good or bad,
and the thought of a future that I never had.
With the promise of heaven, and the threat of a hell...
A reality I did dwell.
And I did thrive on apathy,
and ignorance taught me the way it should be.
All along, all the lies I was fed,
would reassure I\'d rather be dead.

All will die with thier memories,
little lives of misery.
Thirst for power = starve for pain.
All your money goes down the drain.
Like your life in your grave,
none of the power or the money is saved.
And you will die in your pain,
as all of it goes down the drain.

Now I\'m dead to no dismay,
my body reeks, my flesh decays!
All is gone now, the hate and the pain,
reality down the drain.
And I will rot in my grave,
and I will see that nobody is saved.
All is gone now, the hate and the pain,
all of it, gone down the drain.

* In my grave...
no one\'s saved...
no more pain...
in my grave.

    General CommentBasically, the song's about deat (obviously). It discusses that all the things people do throughout their lives is useless once you die. (the second verse is very evident of this)

    General Commentthe trade center is bombed and the FBI is pissed
    so they act the good americans, blaming muslim terrorists


    I'm sure they're referring to when the car was drove in the WTC in the 90s. But still, considering this was realeased in 1999, thats a pretty telling lyric.

    General CommentObviously it's talking about death.

    More specifically the song talks about how the church (or various Christian denominational churches) teach that you must follow a certain set of morals in order to avoid Hell and go to Heaven. And how these churches coerce their members into giving them substantial sums of money as well...

    But when you die, all the effort and money that you gave so that you could get to heaven ends up being completely worthless. When it's all said and done, you ended up giving all that money and avoiding premarital sex for nothing. God doesn't shepherd you into heaven for doing it, you simply die and it all just "goes down the drain."
