"Liar" as written by and Howie Beno Stella Katsoudas....
she spread herself wide open to let the insects in
she leaves a trail of honey to show me where she's been
she has the blood of reptile just underneath her skin
seeds from a thousand others drip down from within

oh my beautiful liar
oh my precious whore
my disease my infection
i am so impure

give it

devils speak of the way in which she'll manifest
angels bleed from the tainted touch of my caress
need to contaminate to alleviate this loneliness
i now know the depths i reach are limitless

oh my beautiful liar
oh my precious whore
my disease my infection
i am so impure

oh

oh

oh my beautiful liar
oh my precious whore
my disease my infection
i am so impure
oh my beautiful liar
oh my precious whore
my disease my infection
i am so impure

    General CommentIf he speaks of a whore (being his as he says "my precious whore") what does he pay her? His disease, his infection? Why would she want that and lay to indure his tainted touch? A whore, I guess may not be as in a hooker who gets a payment and cares not for the customer. I suppose the whore in this case could be naive and being a sex object used by him to get intouch with others vileness while she does not know his intentions. To him somehow she is beautiful, maybe because of what she is able to give him although it seems to be just solidifying his wretchedness. Nonetheless, he calls her a liar, maybe saying she knows of the evil and likes it. To me this seems like his way of justifing what he does to her, not revealing the intentions of the whore he apparently calls her a reptile, thus cold blooded. A reptile is what it is and knows not how to be other than a reptile. Maybe he calls her a liar because she has some realization of her nature (atleast to him) but holds to believe that she is not this reptile. So I guess it would be his word against hers. Maybe she has become a reptile (figuratively) by such abuse. Is this reptile a person? a group? a religion? political group? or maybe some part of himself? Maybe Trent could help me out here.

    General Commentpinion7, I find this song has quite a different meaning when I listen to it.

    In the first verse, he speaks of "her" as an evil that let's unsuspecting people into her life and destroys them (in a mental or emotional sense), and then sends them out into the world to breed more hate and deception: "Seeds from a thousand others drip down from within."

    In the chorus, it seems as if he is praising her and what she has done for him, but in a mocking sort of way. Let me clarify this: he is being sarcastic in his praises, saying she is precious and beautiful (how she makes him feel about her at first), but he calls her a whore and a liar (what she really is "underneath the skin"). In the third line of the chorus, "My disease, my infection," he is proclaiming her to be the reason he is so disgusted with who he is. In essence (in the final line of the chorus), he concludes that he is truly impure and has been corrupted by the "reptile" or the "liar."

    In the first two lines of the second verse, he explains how "devils" praise her and how "angels" are hurt by him. This is showing that the reptile is deceptive, she has twisted people around her finger so that she is thought of and seen as good, while he is seen as the evil one. In the next two lines, he realizes he has reached a point where he can no longer recover from the wounds the reptile has inflicted in him. He is falling into despair and the only way he can lessen the pain is by hurting others.

    The chorus repeats three times through the rest of the song. It climaxes at the end, you can hear the pain and emotion in Trent's voice: he is pouring his whole heart into making the truth of the reptile known.



    This is just my take on it, line for line. If you have a different perspective on it, or think my view is flawed, feel free to say so.
