Delighthing minds
with my shadow
Rely on your way to grow
You want to decide
from your cloud
You're lost in a world
that I have to repair

You want it all
the greatest smile
Who wants to deny forever?
You're made of ice
I pay the price
for all you unforgiveness

Enlighting lies
with my shame
Beneath the veil
of your flow
Don't try to deny
with your mouth
So fine it is knowing
you're under the shade

    General CommentI personally believe that this band(mainly Christina, she is the lyricist) have issues with religion. I think that she believes that GOD is hiding from her.(So fine it is knowing you're under the shade) I think that she also wants to go to heaven.(Who wants to deny forever?) I dunno, Christina is a beautiful, strange woman. This interpretation is just what I got out of it.

    General Commenti agree, it seems to me a lot of the lines could most definitely be refering to religion.

    General CommentHmmm I don't interpret this song about religion. I think that this song is about a very self-destructive person who wants everything, and someone close to them is getting caught up in it.
    The main thing that makes me think this is the voice over at the beginning 'Self-destruct sequence activated' and also the name of the song 'Tight Rope', like this person is walking dangerously and could fall at any time.
    Things like 'a world that I have to repair' and 'I pay the price' are about how someone else is having to deal with the mess that this person is leaving behind.

    General CommentThis song kinda reminds me or Everybodys Fool by Evanescence(sorry to you Ev havers out there), because it seems to be about someone who is popular or thinks she is better than everyone else. Perhaps the singer used to be friends with this person, but she became a total bitch just to become popular. I think the line about being under the shade is about darkness(lies) covering you, and living the way the singer does, in the heat, is a completely truthful life. Beautiful song

    General CommentI think this is one of Lacuna Coil's most passionate and hurtful songs. I think this is a song of a person feeling insignificant and inferior to a person they admire, and knowing that whatever they do they can never be good enough. Its also discussing on one;s actions leave you hurt and left with the pain to deal with as in the lyric,
    "You're lost in a world
    that I have to repair"
    This song can relate to about any difficult relationship a person has for we are all dealing with controlling dominant people that take no better delight than making you feel miserable

    General CommentI'm an Evanesccence fan but I also quite like Lacuna Coil especially the Comalies album. I took this song as being more personal and not a statement on shallow celebrity types like everybody's fool even though i get why the connection would be made.

    I think its about a relationship. A destructive one. One lover is trying to decide if he/she should leave but can't make up their mind since they are blinded by love.

    "You want it all
    the greatest smile
    Who wants to deny forever?
    You're made of ice
    I pay the price
    for all you unforgiveness"

    Its a controlling relationship. One expects the other to be perfect but he/she doesn't like that they are being controlled. they pay for their lover's mistakes

    "Enlighting lies
    with my shame
    Beneath the veil
    of your flow
    Don't try to deny
    with your mouth
    So fine it is knowing
    you're under the shade"

    one lover won't care if he/she lied, just as the other never finds out

    General CommentWhat "The Red Pyramid" said, I personally thing is a pretty close to spot on interpretation of the song.

    Having someone being indecisive in a relationship, and keeping the other person dangling, and waiting for an answer, as both of them are hurting and confused.

    Kudos
