"And Death in My Arms" as written by and Oliver Herbert Michael Bartlett....
And death lay in my arms as colors fade
From gold to gray

Gray now broken my foolishness displayed
Hands tight around her throat this violent loving embrace

Lying restful safe in my arms
Steady rhythm trust she'll come to no harm
Feel her tremble as the nightmare begins
Sleep the horror as the nightmare it ends

I hear her whisper a sweet sound
Fanning the flames
These thoughts consume me and leave me wallowing

Gray now broken my foolishness displayed
Hands tight around her throat
This violent loving embrace
My fingers tremble her lips move silently
One last I love you crush my resolve again

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who loves and hates a woman. He hates her so he tries to kill her, but she tells him that she loves him and he can't kill that love.

    General CommentIt kind of sounds like making violent love

    "hands tight around her throat this violent loving embrace"
    He's chocking her as they are making love

    "lying restful safe in my arms
    steady rhythm trust she'll come to no harm"
    Even though the sex is violent, she trusts him to not really harm her
    Steady rhythm also connotates of the rhythm of sex

    General CommentThis song is a heart attack. To me, it is about doing something (in this case strangling someone to death) in a moment of intense emotion...then regretting it when it's all over and done with...it reminds me of the Shakespear poem "Othello"

    General Commentfuck the meaning this song is a new dimension. the mellow at the beggining which then erupts into a violent guitar solo, the lyrics being passionatly screamed, this is truly one of the best all that reamins songs ever done

    General CommentI believe this song is talking about how he is somehow causing the death of his loved one.

    He said 'Hands tight around her throat this violent loving embrace ' which may mean that although she is completing his world and making the darkness of his life golden and full of color, he is killing her and thus killing himself.

    He had to get rid of her, to cut ties with her, the song seems to say to me. however the last line goes 'My fingers tremble, her lips move silently
    One last i love you, crush my resolve again ' Meaning he loved her so much he couldn't do what he wanted to do in the end and he chooses not to end her life.. for better or worse.

    General CommentThis song to me is about absolute love, I tried so hard to keep Liz from killing herself and would have killed her myself to keep her from hurting herself
