"Baby's First Coffin" as written by and Greg Puciato Benjamin Allen Weinman....
Dear god protect us
Come on blackest heart
She stares forever
And then some never again
Polished barb wire
Smile tricks and treats
She's done
So cut her again
Gut her again
Silence tells us we're damned
Jesus we've gone and done it again
Jimmy's got a new gun in his hand
You're being a liar
I'm stealing the show
You're being a liar
I'm ready to go
How could you doubt
We would ever find out
The emperor is dead
Goodbye to god
Dead so long embrace defeat
You know we both agreed to it
Stick the diamond to it
Gust of wind to the face
Never returning favors
Take the prison to the man
I could promise the world
If we could travel through time
Don't back out on me now
Relax and remember
The promise of the sign
I wish you could see yourself now
You look at me like a child
The way you glide across the room
Instrument of seduction
Let go of it, Rapunzel
Let it down
Wait for the signal
Then bring it down
With a smile, now
Become the conductor
The way you slide across the room
How wonderful the connection
Did the last kiss still taste
As good as the first
Or is this just the opening scene
Of a new play
I look at you like a child
But not at all like you looked at me
But grace is already dead
Now is the time to come
And face the master
You should never say yes
When you really mean no

    General Commentok here's the real lyrics if anyone's interested:

    Dear god protect us come on blackest heart
    she stares forever and then some never again
    polished barbed wire smile tricks and treats
    she's done so cut her again gut her again

    silence tells us we're damned
    jesus we've gone and done it again
    jimmy's got a new gun in his hand

    you're being a liar x4

    how could you doubt we would ever find out
    you’re being a liar, I’m stealing the show
    you’re being a liar, I’m ready to go

    the emperor is dead, the emperor is dead
    goodbye to god
    dead, so long, embrace, defeat,
    you know we both agreed to it

    stick the diamond to it gust of wind to the face
    never returning favors, take the prison to the man
    I could promise the world if we could travel through time
    don't back out on me now relax and remember the promise of the sign
    I wish you could see yourself now
    you look at me like a child

    the way you glide across the room instrument of seduction
    let go of it rapunzel let it down
    wait for the signal then bring it down with a smile
    now become the conductor
    the way you slide across the room
    how wonderful the connection
    did the last kiss still taste as good as the first
    or is this just the opening scene of a new play
    I look at you like a child
    but not at all like you looked at me…

    but grace is already dead, now is the time to come and face the master
    you should never say yes when you really mean no

    General CommentI envy the person who can actually hear what all the lyrics on a DEP song are.

    General Commenti think it's about a murder... "Broken life" etc... also the whole revenge theme

    General CommentOK...here's my take on it.

    Basically, it's about some guy (let's call him Frank) who had consensual sex with a girl (let's call her Thelma). It just so turns out that Thelma had herpes, therefore "taking the prison to" Frank, as herpes is an untreatable disease - a prison you can't escape.

    So he blames her for acting like an "instrument of seduction" and making him want to flood her gates in the first place.

    So it's one of two things:
    1) The girl had herpes.
    OR
    2) They both had a baby that they didn't want, the care of which is often considered a veritable "prison."

    General CommentTo me, i think this song is about a couple who are constantly fighting and arguing. this couple hates each other but they have a baby so they stay together. they wish they never had a baby because its whats keeping them together.

    Im probably wrong, its an awsome/Brutal song though. Love it when he screams "YOUR BEING A LIAR"... ^^
