Oh god!

Once again, waiting for the darkness, beyond smile this cry ("life")
Keep trying for another one
The bright day, one day, sets light into my way
Dig up yourself from your grave

Back to the reason to kill, not exactly motherfucking raw metal
Do you look into the grime
(Fuck the ("you") beat!), it's your choice for the future, by the cross
Before you probably make you ("it") last

As long as the twilight bailed
The dead came as we embrace
More than the ones we love
We own it, we burn it down

Not afraid to cry is not our fault
Not afraid of falling down below
To the night where we'll soon reply
Like the living dead we'll never die

Spoiling inside me fight back, treat you like a madman
When your waiting for the light to come
(She was down!), stuck on a bright ("light") shining bright
It's time to close your eyes

Not afraid to cry is not our fault
Not afraid of falling down below
To the night where we'll soon reply
Like the living dead we'll never die

As long as the twilight bailed
The dead came as we embrace
More than the ones we love
We own it, we burn it down

Not afraid to cry is not our fault
Not afraid of falling down below
To the night where we'll soon reply
Like the living dead we'll never die

    General Comment(more) correct lyrics:

    LOOK OUT !

    Once again waiting for the darkness, beat up
    spun and scarred. Preparing for another war.
    Day by day we decay. Sunlight, get out of my way.
    Dig up yourself from your grave.

    Back to the reason to kill
    Not exactly a muthafucking role model.
    To you looking down on me.
    FUCK YOU BITCH!
    Ain't got time for the future or the past.
    Live for the moment, make it last.

    As long as the twilight veiled
    The decadence we embrace
    More than the ones we love
    We're ardent, we're burning down...

    Not afraid of crying, sorrow and foe.
    Not afraid of falling down below.
    To the night, recklessly we fly.
    Like living dead, we'll never die

    Stalling the sandman, fighting back
    drinking like a madman, run away from the light to come.
    SHIT FALLS DOWN! Sun comes up shining bright
    Time to close your eyes..

    Not afraid of crying, sorrow and foe.
    Not afraid of falling down below.
    To the night, recklessly we fly.
    Like living dead, we'll never die

    As long as the twilight veiled
    The decadence we embrace
    More than the ones we love
    We're ardent, we're burning down...

    Not afraid of crying, sorrow and foe.
    Not afraid of falling down below.
    To the night, recklessly we fly.
    Like living dead, we'll never die

    General CommentI know it has nothing to do with what this song is "really" about, but I get the picture of stealth planes, or more specifically stealth bombers such as the F-117 or especially the B-2.

    "LOOK OUT !"
    Watch out, because here comes the USAF to bomb whatever country has decided to go against us.

    "Once again waiting for the darkness, "
    The stealth planes such as the B-2 and F-117 fly at night. The pilots are waiting for their next mission.

    "beat up spun and scarred."
    The pilots are tired because they might have done a similar sortie the day before.

    "Preparing for another war."
    They are getting ready for their next mission or "war"

    "Day by day we decay."
    The pilots have been doing many missions since the start of their deployment. so they are tired, or "decaying"

    "Sunlight, get out of my way."
    Once again, the flying at night so that it is harder to shoot them down by sight, especially since the radar doesn't work on these planes.

    "Dig up yourself from your grave."
    Imagine a B-2 Spirit bomber coming out of a hardened bunker, since they cost about $2,000,000,000 apiece and so the technology is not captured.

    "Back to the reason to kill
    Not exactly a motherfucking role model.
    To you looking down on me.
    FUCK YOU BITCH!"
    This is expressing why the war was started and maybe the country was trying to corrupt its people, or perhaps other countries, hence "not exactly a motherfucking role model" and the country was badmouthing the US or its allies, "to you looking down on me"

    "Ain't got time for the future or the past.
    Live for the moment, make it last."
    This is showing the pilots dedication to their missions, rather than thinking ahead as to what might happen wrong, or back, like if something went wrong before like the F-117 downed in Serbia.

    "As long as the twilight veiled"
    Yet another night reference

    "The decadence we embrace
    More than the ones we love
    We're ardent, we're burning down..."
    They are following orders, and do not mind the destruction they're causing (the decadence we embrace) and they care very much for what they're doing despite the wear on their bodies.

    "Not afraid of crying, sorrow and foe.
    Not afraid of falling down below."
    The pilots are willing to risk crashing, or "falling down below" to get their jobs done

    "To the night, recklessly we fly."
    They take off during the night to do their work.

    "Like living dead, we'll never die"
    The stealth makes them all but immune to detection and getting shot down, therefore they'll "never die"

    "Stalling the sandman, fighting back"
    The missions run long into the night but the pilots resist sleep

    "drinking like a madman,"
    maybe the "drinking" doesn't refer to alcohol, but a thirst for vengeance after what "country X" did to the US or its allies.

    "run away from the light to come."
    They have to finish before sun-up, or be at risk for visual detection.

    "SHIT FALLS DOWN!"
    Of course this is talking about none other than the bombs dropping

    "Sun comes up shining bright
    Time to close your eyes.."
    They have to end their mission before the sun coming up

    Well, that's my personal interpretation. I know it isn't the real meaning so don't respond to this with "lolz0rz ur dum its about pratys. ur such a n00b with ur stupid airplnae idea"
    Tell me what you think. Respond to this message, and give me your opinion on my opinion.

    General CommentMan-oh-man, that mad riff that begins at 0:47, is totally boner-ific, And that palm muted bit at 3:37 with (I think they're natural) harmonics, and they get higher. Kicks my arse everytime, and I LOVE IT!
