"This Flesh A Tomb" as written by Daniel Jacobs, Travis Miguel, Brandon Saller and Ektor Varkatzas....
I feel eyelashes on my cheek
And they lacerate my flesh
A pain so good
Put your hand in mine
Never let go
Never wake up 'cause I'm done with promises
I'm taking blood oaths
Feels likes you could kiss my imperfections
My imperfections away
And I would stand
Stand by your side until the sun turns the sky
All the colors I see in your eyes

I'll never need to see the sun again
There's enough light in your eyes to light up our little world
So take me, take my away
Kill me slowly, I'll never be the same

I swear to you, on everything I am
And I dedicare to you all that I have
And I promise you that I will stand right by your side
Forever and always until the day I die

The bite marks on my neck never felt so good
I'm losing control and it's all that I can do
Not to blackout and fall into lust with you
Your kisses infect me
The dark gift is loving you

And I feel immortal and I want to make you feel the same
So stand by me as we immulate
We can burn in each other's arms

    General CommentI added a few minor changes, but other than that... pretty flawless translation.

    My Notes:
    (What it could be saying)
    (*What I think it's saying*)

    *dual-vocals Brandon-singing; Alex-screaming*
    I feel eyelashes on my cheek.
    They lacerate my flesh.
    Ripping so good,
    So put your hand in mine.
    Never let go.
    Never wake up,
    'Cause I'm done with promises.
    */dual vocals*

    *hardcore voice*
    I'm taking bottles,
    Feels like you could kiss,
    My imperfections,
    My imperfections away.
    And I will stand,
    Stand by your side.
    Until the sun turns the sky,
    All the colors I see in your eyes.
    */hardcore voice*

    *chorus*
    And I'll never need to see the sun again.
    There's enough light in your eyes,
    To light up all your world.
    So take me,
    Take me away,
    Kill me slowly.
    I'll never be the same!
    */chorus*

    *dual-vocals Brandon-singing; Alex-screaming*
    And I swear to you,
    On everything I am,
    And I dedicate to you,
    All that I am.
    And I promise you,
    That I'll stand right by your side.
    Forever and always,
    Until the day I die.
    */dual vocals*

    *hardcore voice *
    The bite marks on my neck,
    Never felt so good.
    I'm losing control,
    And it's all that I can do.
    Not to black out,
    Fall into lust with you.
    Your kisses infect me,
    The darkness is lost in you.
    */hardcore voice*

    *chorus*
    And I'll never need to see the sun again,
    There's enough light in your eyes,
    To light up all your world.
    So take me,
    Take me away,
    Kill me slowly.
    I'll never be the same! (I'll never be the same!)
    */chorus

    *not guitar solo, but small guitar-drum intermission*

    *dual-vocals Brandon-singing; Alex-screaming*
    And I feel mortal.
    And I want to make you feel the same.
    So stand by me,
    As we emanate,
    We can burn in each other's arms.
    */dual vocals*

    *dual-vocals Brandon-singing; Alex-screaming*
    And I feel mortal.
    And I want to make you feel the same.
    So stand by me.
    As we emanate, (As we emanate!)
    We can burn in each other's arms. (We can burn in each other's arms!)
    */dual vocals*

    *guitar strumming outro; end - guitar winds down*

    General CommentQuick thing about the end. It's

    And I feel immortal
    And I want to make you feel the same
    So stand by me!
    As we immolate
    We can burn in each others arms

    The song is about being a vampire, as much of the curse is, and falling in love with a woman. The "And I feel immortal and I want to make you feel the same" is about wanting to make her a vampire. The immolation part (killing for sacrifical purposes by means of fire) is about how they're being burned alive but that moment doesn't matter because at least they have each other (Awwww)

    General CommentMaxx has it right about the last verse. It goes, " And I feel immortal, And I want to make you feel the same. So tsand by me. As we 'immolate', We can burn in each others arms."

    Most of the songs on the album relate to tragic love and being a vampire. However, it struck me as if this song was saying that they didn't want to live forever and they would eventually go out into the sun to have something nice to look at while they died in each others arms.

    General CommentOfficial lyrics from cd booklet:

    I feel eyelashes on my cheek
    And they lacerate my flesh
    A pain so good
    Put your hand in mine
    Never let go
    Never wake up
    'cause I'm done with promises
    I'm taking blood oaths
    Flees like you could kiss my imperfections
    My imperfections away
    And I would stand
    Stand by your side
    Until the sun turns the sky
    All the colors I see in your eyes

    I'll never need to see the sun again
    There's enough light in your eyes
    To light up our little world
    So take me
    Take me away
    Kill me slowly
    I'll never be the same

    I swear to you
    On everything I am
    And I dedicate to you all that I have
    And I promise you
    That I will stand right by your side
    Forever and always
    Until the day I die

    The bite marks on my neck
    Never felt so good
    I'm losing control
    And it's all that I can do not to blackout
    And fall into lust with you
    Your kisses infect me
    The dark gift is loving you

    And I feel immortal
    And I want to make you feel the same
    So stand by me as we immolate
    We can burn in each other's arms

    General CommentThis song kicks soo much ass, I got the cd because of the song "right side of the bed" which also kicks ass but these Lyrics are so awesome. I'd like to see Chris Carabba or one of those EMO bands try to write a love song like that! (not to offend any emo fans on this board cause' i do like glasseater, taking back sunday, and thursday)
