Well our souls are all mistaken in the same misguided way
We all end up forsaken, we're just choosing our own way
The future now incinerates before our very eyes
And leaves us with emptiness of no more tries

Well our visions of our glory have spiraled down the drain
The best of our intentions come crashing down in flames
The depths of our despair we are unable to contain
It's shallow living

The noose has fallen
And all my friends are crawling
The noose has fallen
And enemies are rising
A truth appalling
Our mak'r comes a calling
The noose has fallen
And enemies are rising

Well the tracers from yesteryear are burning in the dust
Your bruises are reminders of naivete and trust
You're only feeling stronger cause your body's getting numb
Now I lay you down
Put the coins in your eyes
And blow the candles out

The noose has fallen
And all my friends are crawling
The noose has fallen
And enemies are rising
A truth appalling
Our maker comes a calling
The noose has fallen
And enemies are rising

No more!
No more!
Nothing!

No more!
No more!
Ever!
No!
More!

    General CommentIt seems like it would be about Bush.
    "Well our souls are all mistaken in the same misguided way"
    All the other countries think that all Americans are just like Bush, so we are judged in a wrong way.
    "Well our visions of our glory have spiraled down the drain"
    Thoughts of this country being invincible have been proven wrong, and now things have gone to hell
    "Your bruises are reminders of naivete and trust
    You're only feeling stronger cause your body's getting numb"
    I think thats about how the Bush family trusted the bin Ladens and they turned around and attacked the country. Then feeling like the country is rebounding even though things have gotten much worse.
    "The noose has fallen
    And all my friends are crawling
    The noose has fallen
    And enemies are rising
    A truth appalling "
    I'm not sure about the crawling part, I think it has to do with all the other countries maybe trying to crawl away from the mess this country has gotten into, and then the enemies part would be about how this country does nothing more than make more enemies everyday, and frankly the truth sucks. That's my interpritation.

    General Commentits about the start of war. How the death of one person will start an entire war. Like after that one person dies you knwo there is no hope for peace. Maybe has to do with WWI when liek ferdinad was assasinated which started an entire world war

    General CommentThis song can be applied to more than just war, pretty much any situation where you go into it thinking it'll be fine and it'll blow over soon, but it doesn't, and when the niceties and illusions are shattered, it's time to get down and do the dirty work...

    General Commentdsgrntld187 was asking about the line in the chorus that says "...and all my friends are crawling."
    I don't know if there is any meaning to extract from that, other than a reference to the previous line. But then again, maybe it does.

    When put together, those two lines could be taken to mean that extremely difficult times have befallen us, and we as regular American citizens are trying our best to live our lives the way we intend to, despite all of that. If you want to take it literally, we're just crawling underneath the noose to keep from getting hanged.

    General CommentI think the song is about shit going down and all your 'friends' ditching you. The first verse is about everything going to hell, the second verse is about a feeling of betrayal, and the chorus is about all your 'friends' abandoning you to those who would kill you.

    General CommentWhat if Josie (from my favourite movie "Josie and the Pussycats") wrote this song herself? Then, it would be kickass, won't it? Anyways, This song could be about Revenge. I LIKE REVENGE AS MUCH AS I LIKE THIS SONG!!
