I harmonize with the million screaming laughs that
haunted those before us, preaching symphonies
while the chorus yells...unity.
it's based on facts...
it's based on facts.

you spitshined my corroded halo,
then packaged it away.
you spitshined my corroded halo,
and left it to decay.

will you watch your step?
boring stories left.
are you feeling lost in here? she said
come in here...the pain won't last.

you spitshined my corroded halo,
then packaged it away.
you spitshined my corroded halo,
and left it to decay.

take this weight off my shoulders,
and move it to my brain.
take this weight off my shoulders,
and move it to my brain.

you spitshined my corroded halo,
then packaged it away.
you spitshined my corroded halo,
and left it to decay.
you spitshined my corroded halo,
then packaged it away.
you spitshined my corroded halo,
and left it to decay.

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about soldiers. Spit shine alone is a tactic used to shine your boots. I think its talking about how soldiers are made to think a certain way, and in becoming that; seeing death, seeing war they lose their innocence. I think they are trying to find a way to cope, spit shining like taught to try to make their halo shine again, to deal with the guilt that comes with taking a life. IDK, thats how I relate.

    General Commenti tried to make sense of the verses but failed..
    the most obvious meaning of the chorus for me, is that some girl made his life better/made him a better person (spit-shining his halo--> using her own self or "spit" and "shining" him or making him better) but then maybe left him or lost interest, thus the "And left it to decay". But it seems that there must be more to it than that, when you look at the verses.

    General CommentYou can ponder on and on about who he's referring to that "spit shined his corroded halo". Someone (or something) came into his life and uplifted him. But, it throws me off about it was packaged away, and was left to decay. Maybe the narrator was uplifted for a certain amount of time, but it turned out to be short-lived, because someone/something left his life... leaving his halo to decay.
