"Curtain Call" as written by Raymond Ian Burns, Paul Gray, Christopher John Millar and David Vanian....
In town for one night only lust, fame and a feeling of the holy
A new king is crowned for your delight yeah alright
Single file it's just that easy:a mere man to adore, and believe me
Soon you'll be screaming with delight
Take it back before I fall
I'm no hero
Behind the curtain there stands a statue designed to sell as many as they want to
The consequences aren't worth your time:we're divine
A fresh idol for a suffering nation a clean lamb for your slaughtering elation
Another victim of our need to be weak
The lights are on the stage is set for failure
In your minds I will burn in effigy forever
Burn forever

    General Commentanother great song on their EP. there could be a lot of meanings...i think like someone from the past comes back to him...and the person tries to conform himself to the present. however its just not like him and he just looks dumb. i dont know...i look at things weirdly...but whatever bsf rocks and im seeing them next saturday so i'll find out more there... whoever doesnt have their EP better go out and buy it bc i've never heard better stuff in my life

    General CommentI think its about boy sets fire gettin more popular and that people are expecting more of him, and he tells them that "i'm no hero"

    General Commentin a general sense, it could be about the way popular culture puts people on pedestals and gives them all this clout, but it's actually just a placeholder for people to gawk at and compare their own lives to. It'll never add up and just like with every popular icon their 15 minutes of fame ends and the masses have no need for them.
