"My Assassin" as written by and Mu....
The sky blistered red, shot's ring overhead.
I'm scaling walls that the soldiers built to muffle out your screams.
The message was dislocated, misconveyed, incinerated.
In the wake of war, just listen for the flood.

The arthritis in us all is choking me out.
It's killing me.
Maybe you could finally be the one who reaches in and saves me from the flood.
Collapse.

This is our last chance.
There's no time for relapse.
Just listen for the flood.
If not us, can I just save you?

Can't you hear the bombs are calling all our old habits their own.
A sniper patiently awaiting me in every catacomb.
Are you scared girl?
Won't you be my assassin?

Hunted down for the last time and carried you home.
The arthritis in us all is choking me out.
It's killing me.
Maybe you could finally be the one who reaches in and saves me from the flood.

Collapse.
This is our last chance.
There's no time for relapse.
Just listen for the flood.

If not us, can I just save you?
Bring on the love 'cause here comes the flood.
Bring on the love 'cause here comes the flood.
We must have been seduced by the calm of the isle as we tied our wrists,
Our wrists too tight in the shallow.

Maybe you could finally be the one who reaches in and saves me from the flood.
Collapse.
This is our last chance.
There's no time for relapse now.

Just listen for the flood.
If not us, can I just save you?

    General CommentI don't think it is about war- I think it is about being saved by someone. Hence the "maybe you could finally be the one who reaches in and saves me from the flood" The war references could be a metaphor for something deeper, I don't know what, but I don't think it is something as blantant as war.

    General Commentsomeone who can scream/sing as well as james does in this song deserves ultimate respect in my opinion.
    the vocals alone are so talented.

    i agree that the war thing is a metaphor.
    most likely to do with a relationship i rate.

    i dunno.
    any one got a better idea?

    General Commentwar is pretty deep if you ask me. but the bled writes everything in metaphors so it most likely is.

    General CommentThe war here is a metaphor for a personal war.... he was alone for a long time, felt empty.. and then he found this girl and she makes him feel like finally someone can save him from emptiness.. it's like a flood [[depression/emptiness]] that's coming to swallow him but the girl has the powers to save him.

    General CommentLyrics:

    I'm 110% sure it's

    "The message was dislocated, misconveyed, incinerated."

    Interpretation:

    I think forever_haunted pretty much said it.

    The only part that threw me off was

    "we must have been seduced by the calm of the isle as we tied our wrists
    our wrists too tight in the shallow"

    Anyone have an interpretation for that?
