The soft feet stepping, the blades sharpened and the regard for life wasted away to nothing. As only one rule is kept in mind (with the heart detached from anything worth feeling). And then the fire and the death, as callous hands stop callous hearts, and even the memory is erased with the fading of the light. The tower is lit again (like a funeral pyre) and the silent motives dissappear into the all encompassing shadows. Without a trace, without a memory. How could we free anyone when we can't save ourselves.

    General CommentRuthless killing at war. That's what this song makes me think of, especially Vietman. Just the whole helpless atmosphere where you're walking through a booby trapped jungle while you're being attacked by guerilla fighters. You're pretty helpless; that's what "when we can't save ourselves" made me think of.

    General CommentI agree with A Shoelace, to an extent, although I think it could also be a commentary on vendettas/gang fights/inter-clique hate (calling the song 'Two Houses' kind of implies that).

    A great song from one of my favourite bands.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's about how war can turn people an emotioneless machine basically.
