Oh no,
here it is again
I need to know
when I will fall in decay

Something wrong
with every plan of my life
I didn't really notice that you've been here

Dolefully desired
Destiny of a lie

Set me free
your heaven's lie
set me free with you love
set me free

Oh no,
here it is again
I need to know
why did I choose to betray you

Something wrong
with all the plans of my life
I didn't realize that you've been here

Dolefully desired
Destiny of a lie

Set me free
your heaven's lie
set me free with you love
set me free

Set me free your heaven's lie
set me free with you love
set me free

    General CommentI think this song means pretty much what acetica says, it's about making mistakes and learning from them. The whole heaven's a lie thing is probably like the person thinking that they've done so much wrong, that they can't achieve heaven and are trying to convince themselves it's a lie. (I'm probably wrong though)

    General CommentThis makes me sad inside. I think its about begging your own emotions to set you free. You see the person (ex) and you just cant set yourself free from them. They've probably already set you free, thats why they are your ex. This shatters me. I can't explain it any better than that.

    General CommentThis song means that you see this person from a distance, and being with them seems so amazing...like heaven, but when you get with them it sucks, and that heaven that you saw was just a lie, and now you just wanna get out of the relationship, and you're begging the other person to set you free, and all the plans you made to stay with this person forever are wrong...at least that's what I feel it means

    Song Meaning things in life are often not what they promise to be, and the whole caveat to temptation is how it promises one thing, but always delivers something else; what promises heaven lies to you, truth is more elusive than what is presented to us as such, and because of that we must continually search and peel back the layers of deception that bind us to what we think we want, otherwise once we get what we thought we wanted, we find that we are trapped and have lost all that really matters

    My InterpretationThis doesn't have to be about breakups or even the real heaven. I think it just about the realization that what you thought made you happy was just empty, a lie. A person maybe, you thought you could trust, but it turns out that they betrayed you in the end.

    Song MeaningCristina Scabbia has told us what the song means so here what it means: Although frequently labeled as an anti-religion song, such an interpretation is mistaken. In an interview with HighWireDaze.com, leading vocalist Cristina Scabbia explained the meaning of the song; the word "heaven" is a metaphor for a "perfect life". When the phrase "your heaven's a lie" is used, it is referring to people who try to force their opinions on others

    General CommentPart of life is making mistakes. It is important to learn from these mistakes. The only way to learn is to have growth. Love is the ingredient to activate this growth, and this is how we know that we are free.

    General Commenti think it's about seeing your ex again after a bad break-up.

    or it could be about learning from your mistakes. it's like the person is confronted by th same dilemma again, and now, he/she has to make another decision. "Oh no, here it is again I need to know why did I choose to betray you"

    great song.

    General CommentI dunno about you guys, but when i listen to this song i think about my Ex girlfriend and how i still have these feelings for her (We had a rough breakup) but honestly, she's the type that holds you everyone to a double standard and makes you feel awful for things while she looks like a saint. Obviously she's not, but you're soo whipped you find some reason to justify staying with her. Guess that's just one of those immature "control" games that people play but i hate that crap. Anyway's about the song: when it say's "your heaven's a lie", I'm thinking about the 'personal heaven' that you attach to the person, only to realize that it's all B.S. - Just my thought's, good breakup song : )
