Welcome, come in, yes this is me
I gave once too much and now
I can't get rid of thee
I can't be subtle, I can't be kind
Why I should be there for you, fuck off and get a life!!

Read a book unwritten, kill the poets dream unhidden
I wonder, did I love too much, cross the final line
Rip my life and spread the news,
cut my wings and make me choose I leave the fuckin' sword on the rock,
Feel hurt? Why I should give a damn.

I know I'm easy target, I'm sold on blackmarket
How would you feel if I stole what you need
I give everything to you.What will you do?
What makes you think you won't burn in hell?
You see a life but not mine
Read me a line from your torture guide
Download new lies on your scythe

This is my vision, this is one man's decision
Wise thinking from a fool
For twisted minds I'm a tool
I could be independent, but can I take the heat
Variety of thieves make my illusions obsolete

I know I'm easy target, I'm sold on blackmarket
How would you feel if I stole what you need
I give everything to you.What will you do?

What makes you think you won't burn in hell?
You see a life but not mine
Read me a line from your torture guide
Download new lies on your scythe

What makes you think my words burn in hell
..You see a life...
..Read me a line...
..Your diary lies...
..Please get a life...

What makes you think you won't burn in hell?
You see a life but not mine
Read me a line from your torture guide
Download new lies on your scythe

    General CommentDefinitely piracy... (Read a book unwritten) downloading a book or something else that's leaked to the net before the actual release. (Kill the poet's dream unhidden) So the poet doesn't get money for his work.

    General CommentI believe it's Piracy, or some kind of robbery. Anyways, all I need to say is I love that line F*ck off and get a life!!' It completely represents my anger towards this girl right now.

    General CommentStop thinking in fucking love, its 'bout piracy. Think!! the song's name is Dream Thieves
    "How would you feel if i stole what you need?" Talks about downloading stuff and it says it again in "Download new lies in your scythe"
    And he continuously says "What makes you think you wont burn in hell?" Again you can say it talks about the false innocence that piracy can give you when, actually you are stealing the songs.. you become a dream stealer as the song says

    General CommentI'd say piracy, it seems pretty clear.. And, keep in mind, this song has never even been released. You'd have to download it to hear it; "what makes YOU think YOU won't burn in hell", right? Kinda clever, really..

    General CommentThis is about as far from a song about love or relationships as I can tell.

    The lyrics don't have THAT deep of a meaning, the message is there, plain as day; The song is definitely about piracy.

    If you're downloading music and the like -- illegally -- then it's still a form of stealing, and therefore piracy.

    General CommentI guess at this point nobody is going to come to a consensus, lol.
    However, I do tend to lean toward the more literal interpretation of the lyrics: it's about piracy.
    The message seems pretty clear to me. I have to really take the words loosely to see the abusive relationship angle.

    "Welcome, come in, yes this is me
    I gave once too much and now
    I can't get rid of thee
    I can't be subtle, I can't be kind
    Why I should be there for you, fuck off and get a life!!"
    - I gave you too much, and now you're just here taking more and more. Fuck off and quit stealing my shit.

    "Read a book unwritten, kill the poets dream unhidden
    I wonder, did I love too much, cross the final line
    Rip my life and spread the news,
    cut my wings and make me choose I leave the fuckin' sword on the rock,
    Feel hurt? Why I should give a damn."
    - I wonder if I gave too much. Keep this shit up and I'm going to leave/quit! Feel hurt? So what.

    "I know I'm easy target, I'm sold on blackmarket
    How would you feel if I stole what you need
    I give everything to you.What will you do?
    What makes you think you won't burn in hell?
    You see a life but not mine
    Read me a line from your torture guide
    Download new lies on your scythe"
    - (This is the part that solidifies the piracy angle for me.) I know I'm an easy target. I'm not big. My shit is sold bootleg. How would you feel if I stole your shit? I give you everything and this is the thanks I get. You're not innocent.

    "This is my vision, this is one man's decision
    Wise thinking from a fool
    For twisted minds I'm a tool
    I could be independent, but can I take the heat
    Variety of thieves make my illusions obsolete"
    - This is my opinion. I could be independent, but my vision wouldn't reach the masses. Variety of thieves making that vision meaningless.

    Etc, etc.

    I also think this song has a loose connection to "Blank File." I never noticed before, but I just happened to be listening to "Blank File" while writing this. :D

    General CommentThe message is right there, clear as day, albeit metaphorized. And mostly because this song says things that I want to say to my own girlfriend at times.

    And besides, you want piracy lyrics? Go check out Running Wild. Awesome band right thurr.
