Fight, priest, fight
Take pictures and make all right what you have lost
Give pride back to the ground
You got all you want, but you've got a wreck
Everyone in this whole wide world, wake up and panic
Fortune wears a red dress, but her bones smell of death
Panic
They all stare, but no one seeks
They all claim, but no one speaks
They all hear what they want
Panic, preacher, panic
Beware of these sheep in the costume of wolves lies
They come in pairs of two and we only die twice
But for such a long time
Just because you kiss a lot, that don't mean you're in love
Just because you have begun, that does not mean you've won
Well I was a second son, not born but just once
And all my friends be gray
The fade out
They all close the door and no one speaks out loud
The fade out
Take my heart, prophet

    i think it is talking about Jesus after he was put inside the tomb with the "They all close the door and no one speaks out loud" and the "take my heart, prophet" i believe is talking to God
    Overall: i think this is about Christs' crucifixion

    Fortune may look good, but will lead to death.

    General Commenti think you are right, pinkfloyd dude.
    i didn't see it till i read your comment, but it makes a lot of sense.

    a lot of the beginning i think, has to do with how the priests didn't think Jesus was the Messiah. because they were so prideful that and they thought they knew what was up. and then it ended up screwing them over.

    General CommentThe part at the end of the song, ALL MY FRIENDS BE GRAY. THE FADE OUT. THEY ALL CLOSE THE DOOR AND NO ONE SPEAKS OUT LOUD. TAKE MY HEART PROPHET.

    I take this part as if he is talking about people who don't know the lord. They are gray, and have not seen the light. And they close the door to the idea. And no one really says anything about it. That is why he says take my heart, prophet. So that you can live as christ did, and to help people. That is how I take it.
