Chanting in the darkness for just one taste. Screaming bloody mary until my mirror breaks. Cheating on reason for just one glimpse of the disease riding on your lips.

Lay reason to waste.Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust.

Breaking into you. Is like waking, waking the dead.

Burning inside you. Is like waking, waking the dead.

Burning inside you. As you bury, bury your dead.

How much did she see? She stole my skin, I lost it all of what shed. I lost it all to that flicker of pearly white. Those nails did lay rest another chaste and serpentine(lunar) sacrifice on the eighth or ninth.

    General Commenti reckon this song is about getting, or trying to get, into a relationship that you know is going to fuck you up. You know it is, but you do it anyway. The big clue for me was from the title and kwnoingly getting yourself into dangerous situations which you'll have to escape from, and I think the lyrics back it up pretty well.

    General Commenti think this is about someone that's out of reach, or someone that's figuratively 'dead' to you because of the lyrics "is like waking the dead"

    General Commentactually this song is about mordern man's need for emotinal expierence, and their spiritual barness,

    we as modern humans in 2005/6 often reject anything that cant be explained, which is in short, almost everything that maters, and we end in a perpetual angst, with most of our needs unfufilled, and we will generally do almost anything for an infusion of meaning or spiritual fix

    "chanting in the darkness just for one taste
    screaming bloody mary until my mirror breaks"

    the narrator uses the bloody mary ritual of darring a spirit to attack, and waiting for it or anything as a symbol of modern man waiting for anything of spiritual significane, and the narrator will do anything for "one glimpse" of something meaningful that man in his mordern condition is denied and often lables as harful (" the disease riding on your lips" the narrator is trying to expierence life " beyond reason"

    General CommentWhat does the "(lunar) sacrifice on the eighth or ninth." mean? I've been doing my best but hopefully someone from america can explain this, as search engines turns out to be worthless.
