You can't make me go outside
The trees are vicious
The winds speak lies
Arms of summer warn "rain tonight"
On horseback through it
I coughed to stay alive

I first faught the knife that brought life to
Skin was stretched and rules were made
Scalpel pushed and pulled

Now I kneel in shame
Terrors of the night
Waiting her to scream at night
Akward desire to taste her
Take her outside
Make her make me

I put her on her back
And sewed diamonds into her eyes
She can see me better now
And I can love her again

So easily you fashion the words crime as her dress slips down around her ankles

    General CommentI'm sure this the right order, and closest to what is audible (keep in mind that no one will have the exact words, but this is easy to make out):

    Terrors of the night,
    Waiting to hear a scream (oh yeah!).
    [Awkward] desire to taste her
    Take her outside!

    Terrors of the night,
    Waiting to hear her scream (oh yeah!).
    [Awkward] desire to taste her
    Take her outside!

    Now I kneel in shame. x4

    You can't make me go outside,
    (Make her make me..)
    The trees are vicious,
    (Make her make me..)
    The winds speak lies.

    Summer's arms say "Rain tonight"
    (Make her make me..)
    On horseback through it
    (Make her make me..)
    I coughed to stay alive.

    I first fought the knife
    That brought life to
    Skin was stretched
    Rules were made
    Pulling the scalpel.
    (I sewed diamonds into her eyes!)
    I first fought the knife!
    I first fought the knife!

    I first fought the knife
    That brought life to
    Skin was stretched
    Rules were made
    Pulling the scalpel.

    Take her outside!
    Take her outside!

    Yes I own the CD and there is clearly a juxtaposition of lyrical content. The other thing to consider is that clearly all the lyrics listed weren't put in. So it's extra to help you frame the story, which is why they are in a different order too!

    General Commentthe last lines make it obvious its about rape. This is an awesome song, its hard to tell what its about unless you read into it, especially if there was not the last line.

    General CommentYa, alot of their lyrics aren't in order as from the booklet. They just jump from like 1 to 7 to 4 to 10. It's hard keeping up.

    General Commentwhat is he saying??? there are a lot of extra lyrics that dont fit with anything that he's saying. its frustrating. i wanted to cover this song but cant, because i dont know what he's saying. . . that sucks. anyways. if anyone has any ideas on what he's saying in the beggining, please post it.

    i hear something about "scream, oh yeah!"

    General CommentThis song is, as is the case with many FBTMOF songs, enigmatic in lyrics, with incredibly deep symbolism. Not only are the lyrics incredible, the chainsaw-like intro followed by the classic screetching guitar rhythms are a great example of the unorthodox and brilliant musical style Fear before the March is known for.

    General CommentYou have to move around to match the lyrics with the song.
    For Instance

    it starts with
    Terrors of the night
    Waiting her to scream at night
    Akward desire to taste her
    Take her outside

    Then its the guitar player on

    You can't make me go outside
    The trees are vicious
    The winds speak lies
    Arms of summer warn "rain tonight"
    On horseback through it
    I coughed to stay alive

    and you just have to understand that they dont enunciate(sp) much when they scream. so just keep that in mind.
    also, some lines are NOT in the song; these are what appear in the cd insert

    General CommentTerrors of the night
    Waiting her to scream at night
    Akward desire to taste her
    Take her outside (x2)

    Now I kneel in shame (x4)

    You can't make me go outside
    The trees are vicious
    The winds speak lies
    Arms of summer warn "rain tonight"
    On horseback through it
    I coughed to stay alive


    I put her on her back
    And sewed diamonds into her eyes
    She can see me better now
    And I can love her again



    That'd the order that I got.
