Blame my cloven hooves
If I sink what does it prove
I'll always be your prey
Blame my crooked cross
Say I'm your bitter loss
The winds of hell are blowing your way

Carry your cross and I'll carry mine
Dig your own hole and you'll be fine
Build your own tower 'til heavens devour
Your very last hour


Blame it on hell's fire
And on my desires
The skies are crying blood
Give me all your lies
And blame the lord of flies
The face of evil is the face of God

    General Comment:this is one of the most touching songs I´ve ever heard. it´s pretty much like a philosophy book: deep and thought-provoking, but in just 16 lines. I think it´s about how religious people tend to piously believe that anybody that doesn´t belong to their creed or sect is going straight to hell and that their own religion (which is only one among many others) is the one and only true religion.at least that´s my interpretation of the six first lines. in the chorus the author advises people to live their lives without bothering with other peoples conceipts so that everything will be fine. he also tells people to do something constructive until the day they die. in the last stanza he makes a comment about how religious people view mankind´s bad deeds. christians tend to blame the world´s problems on the devil and on hell´s fire, while buddhists blame it on human desires, when, in fact,the blame is on mankind and it´s lame ethics. in the last line he points to a major ethical corruptor: religion. the face of God is the face of evil. religion is the evil.

    Song Meaning:Well my interpretation of the song it quite differnt yet i do agree with dead-god-in-me ibeleive that it has something to do with religion. on the first 6 lines i think it means to blame the devil or evil in her/him if she falls and blame her/his hypocrite religion. i think the chorus mean to bury her/his own grave and they'll be okay or build your own way to heaveen before you go to hell. that last set of 6 lines i think it means to blame the temptation i think this song is through a sinner's eyes b/c a sinner beleives god is evil.
