"Kill To Believe" as written by Brandan Schieppati, Brian Leppke, Scott Danough, Marta Peterson, Ryan Wombacher and Derek Wayne Youngsma....
Now what do you want from me?
When I've sacrificed my heart so you can be set free
And time will never cure this disease
I'm only left with tired arms to stop from drowning

This is loveless
Your love is hopeless

Do you you remember
On that night I couldn't find the words to say I'm sorry
If you recall that night you ripped my heart right out
Before saying I loved you
Do you believe is this?
Do you believe in me?
If you believe in love
Would you believe in me?

So what will you take from me?
I'm the man with out a soul, a soul for you to seek
And time will never cure your disease
I'm only left with tired arms to stop from drowning.

Believe in me
I've emptied my soul
Believe in me.
I've killed this disease now
Time to shatter your heart
Bring you to your knees
I've found the strength to fight on
And stop the bleeding

You're killing, you're not the same to me now got to kill to believe

    General Commentbeautiful song indeed.

    i think it's about two people who were very much in love at one time. he fucked up something and he's saying he's sorry for hurting her and he still loves her. she says she loves him too but she's still pissed off, and he doesn't know what to do to make her forgive him so he's like giving up. he's like fuck you if you don't accept my apology i'm moving on.

    General Commentthis has gotta be 1 of the best bleeding through songs ever!!!

    i rekkon its about a guy who gave his all 4 this chick "I've sacrificed my heart so you can be set free"

    then he went and did something so bad but he just couldnt manage 2 apologize
    "On that night I couldnt find the words to say I'm sorry"

    so she left without saying she loved him
    "you ripped my heart right out before saying i loved you"

    now he feels the only escape is murder
    "time to shatter your heart bring you to your knees"
    "got to kill to believe"

    its probably wrong but thats what i think anyway...

    General CommentImo, i think its about that he've done something stupid,and for that his girl makes him pay,like acting hurt just to hurt him.. Thats whats the first 21 lines in the above lyrcs are about. The final ones are about him "countering" this, thinking like "fuck this, its ben going on for to long" or "This is loveless
    Your love is hopeless".. Anyone getting my point?

    General CommentI think the beginning is eluding to the fact that she doesn't want to try and the entire relationship is basically resting on his shoulders. And relationships are not a one person thing.

    "This is loveless
    Your love is hopeless"

    Yeah, he loves her but she will NEVER love him

    "Do you you remember
    On that night I couldnt find the words to say I'm sorry"

    I don't think he did anything wrong but he is probably saying the reason that she doesn't love him is his fault so he is apologizing. "I'm sorry this is all my fault that this didn't work out."

    But at the time he couldnt say that, he was shocked and in disbelief it was all coming to an end.

    Which is not true, the relationship was doomed from the beginning. Why?

    Because she never loved him!

    "If you recall that night you ripped my heart right out"

    She finally told him she doesn't love him

    "Before saying i loved you"
    She tries to ease his pain by saying something like, "We can still be friends" but obviously thats not going to work. He is in love with her. Remember - Before.

    "Do you believe is this?
    Do you believe in me?
    If you believe in love
    Would you believe in me?"

    She is just questioning the facts. He is perfect, he does everything for her, he is there for her, and he is everything but she doesn't love him? He just doesn't understand and rightfully so.

    The end is about him being robbed of everything. His love, his time and his pride.

    So if she doesn't love him back he will MAKE her love him and they will see eye to eye no matter what. She will believe. Even if it means he has to kill to her to make her believe.

    General CommentThe line "I'm only left with tired arms to stop the drowning" is saying that he won't drown ( he won't die from this) but he won't be able to swim to shore ( he won't be able to move on). Reminds me of one of my break ups... He...
