This is my life down here with me.
One mistake for which I still pay dearly.
Self-reconstruction after a granted wish for annihilation.
The dissection of definition, the bitter bite of memory.
Cringing in anticipation of the sting of separation.
The reflections on which we used to rely crashed were we to discover that they could only lie.
Don't lie to me and say you'd die for me.
What would you die for?

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. This song is the reason I started getting into Most Precious Blood. I love the line "don't lie to me and say you'd die for me." It's just a really powerful lyric. Anyway, I think the message that the song is trying to get across is that this guy made a mistake, a really big mistake. The mistake, as I gather, was trusting somebody. The guy used this person as someone they could fall back on, like a security blanket. And then, one day, this person, who the guy cared for and would do anything for, stabs him in the back.
    Agree?

    General CommentYep, most definitely. This song definitely implies back-stabbing and mistrust...it's a good track, Most Precious Blood are unexpectantly..pretty damn good.
