Run, run farmer screaming bloody murder
Run, run farmer screaming bloody murder

the daughters of question have been murdered murdered murdered.

Deception is charming
i dont think so

i dont think so (x100)

these things harmonize and overthrow.
these things will cure but they will tear down
and we are not the ones who carry on
and we are not the ones who wear the shroud, tear down.

Liar, condescender, words born as bastards.
Liar, condescender, words born as bastards.
our swords will rest and a course in miracles all hail
and killers will rise. Where have we gone wrong?

Understand laced the web. i dont think so

    General Commentthis song tells us how people have been treated. Girls were killed if they were born with retardation or something along those lines. The song quotes that it all eventually gets better and will be illegal/abandon but it has still affected many of people. More and more people were treated woman and men like this and it got to be soo big (and killers will rise).

    General Commenti dunno underoathfan111, its a good idea, but i feel another meaning. Im gonna say it concerns todays society, and how people just fall into its deceptive ways.

    The daughters of question have been murdered: this seems to me like he's saying we dont question the horrors society warps us into believeing, though we might have at one point in time.

    Deception is charming: Like i said before, i think he's expressing the fall into the corruption society brings upon us trough deception, and since the deception is now days based on premiscous senses of pleasure, it is indeed charming.

    No, I dont think so: saying in actuality deception aint charming because it leads us down a fucked up pathway.

    the entire chours from these things will harmonize- to tear down: I think he's sayin all these problems we face and more importantly the people that expirence these problems will all come together in the end, but when he says tear down i think he's tryin to say like, it'll be a tough journey to achieve that status.

    Lair, condesender, words born of bastards: I believe this is more of a personal frustration with these teachings the average american views through the televsion set everyday, and the singer not only is lashing out at them, yet at the same time he's (i think) attempting to throw attention towards those emotions so others might recognize whats happenin.

    Our swords will rest and a course of miracles all hail, and killers will rise. Where have we gone wrong: I personally believe that this is a call to all those who understand this message, and an attempt to let them all understand that they should recognize these moral illnesses, and attempt to make a change through peaceful methods (our swords will rest). The change that he hopes for is what i consider to be the "miracles all hail" part. Killers will rise i think is a statement generated towards those who will try to stop us, whether he is talking about actual people, or its a metaphor for sin, im not sure. Finally, where did we go wrong is just a sentence bringing our focus away from the hopeful future and back into what is the still fog filled present.

    Im not sure what he means by understand laced the web. Im guessing he's sayin like understand is a person of some sort, and he laced some web of which i am unaware of.

    This might be the true interpretation, or not, its just what this sng means to me.

    I truthfully feel that this message (if it is what i believe it to be) is a powerful one. Im the singer in a band and i normally focus on worldly corruptions and shit. Not in a christian sense, more like a anti-whores or anti-idols kinda stuff. But this particular message reminds me a Jesse Leach (old KsE) style shit. Its all just a call for a better world, and i think we should strive for it. Good job Cory.

    General CommentI can't help but think the music video for this song has to do something with this song's meaning. The first person's interpretation made me think he could be right because of the children in the video maybe having to do something with the song. Whatever it is, it's an amazing song. Not just lyrically, but my gosh, the guitar play and distortion is incredible... Great metal band.

    General Commentif you really think about it, "words born as bastards" is the only part you need. batards are fatherless men. so if the words are fatherless, they have no root to them, no meaning. so he's basically saying thats something is creating chaos for no reason and we dont know what to do or if we've done something to create the chaos. its probably has to deal with xcrazycorex's belief, from the society and how the media can twist it and how we need to think of a solution quick before time runs out and there is no hope and complete chaos destroys the world. (christ maybe the solution??????) Think about it any comments, you guys can email me at, i dont usually check back at the responses to my posts. :)

    God Bless,

    General CommentAre the lyrics at the beginning referring to 'The Green Mile', in which an inmate is convicted of murdering two girls. Crazycore's nailed it, for me. I don't think there's a better explanation.

    General CommentOkay...this song...if you ask against our philosophies that our world holds on so closely to in comparison to us as Believers.

    "Run, run farmer screaming bloody murder!
    The daughters of question have been murdered, murdered, MURDERED!!!"

    ~~The farmer had daughters, and they were murdered, so he ran around screaming, “MY DAUGHTERS ARE DEAD!!! MY DAUGHTERS ARE DEAD!!!” In our world, we as Christians should be, “OUR NATION IS DEAD!!! OUR GENERATION IS DEAD!!!”

    "Deception is charming."

    ~~Enough said on that subject.

    "No, I don't think so!"

    ~~To us as redeemed Christians, it’s not so. Deception is a foul odor to us.

    "These things will harmonize and overthrow.
    These things will cure, but they will tear down."

    ~~If we look at it from a Christian view:

    These philosophies will neutralize the whole argument by making people happy, but then it will take over the whole. Like those who wouldn't believe Creationism...they made a little room for Evolution, and now look at it! They will cure...they will answer our questions and our thirst for information, but they will destroy everything we hold on to.

    "We are not the ones who carry on.
    We are not the ones who wear the shroud.
    Tear down..."

    ~~Doesn't it seem like that? We can't really win...they're stuck in their beliefs...or so we think. But, we're not the deceivers, so with God, we can tear down the walls of the falseness.

    "Liar! Condescender! Words born as bastards!"

    ~~Satan is the liar and the condescender, or the demeaner of Christ, and, like TRUELYSAVED said, the words born as bastards are the words of Satan, as fatherless can be, nothing but lies and deceit.

    "Our swords will rest and a course in miracles all hail!”

    ~~We need to put down our weapons and become on the same level as them…we are no better. We’re all sinners…but we’re redeemed. Our lives, the living miracles they are, will shine His Light on them.

    “And killers will rise!!!”

    ~~Killers by the Sword, or the Word of God (Eph. 6:17), but not real killers. We need to be active in God’s Word and attacking the falseness.

    “Where have we gone wrong???”

    ~~What did we as a race do to deserve this mess? It’s called…the deception of Adam.

    “Understanding laced the web!”

    The web of the Spider, Satan, is covered in that stench of the need of information and understanding. That’s where evolution came from…because Darwin wanted to say that he knew how it happened.

    That's about it if you ask me. Colossians 2:8 says, "Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deciet, according the the traditions of men, according to the basic patterns of this world, AND NOT ACCORDING TO CHRIST."

    Look out for false philosophy.

    General CommentOk, I've read all the comments above, but it seems obvious to me that “Understanding laced the web!” actually means men's thirst for understanding (and all the scientific progression) made everything more confusing and complicated (laced the web)
