fortunes wide, I'm riding on
(through the spectrum, the spectrum)
you wanna tumble with me, I'll take you out
(with election, election)
don't bother to retreat, we'll hunt you down
(we've connections, connections)
we will not stop until we find out who did this

well okay, we'll hear you out
but first we'll tie you down and show you just what pain's about
we'll give water to the children, we'll all drink wine
just shut your mouth and listen, you'll be just fine

suicide will not provide
(intervention, suspension)
the coil we've received is winding down
(to the tension, the tension)
there is no longer a need for any kind
(of complexion, complexion)
we will not stop until we have all the pieces

when the fans of the plan start to scream and shout
well they open up their mouths and only bees come out
that's what you get for going swimming in the lake of fire
then you disconnect the phone and ride the snake
two nails to the hand is all it takes
when the ugly ones will steal your face

(stand up, come out)

that's right, we want you to stand up now

    General CommentOkay uhhh... these lyrics don't make any sense. Let's try THESE instead:

    Fortunes wide
    I'm riding on through the spectrum, the spectrum
    You wanna tumble with me,
    I'll take you out with election, election
    Don't bother to retreat
    We'll hunt you down - we've connections, connections
    We will not stop until we find out who did this

    Well okay, we'll hear you out
    But first we'll tie you down and show you just what pain's about
    We'll give water to the children, we'll all drink wine
    Just shut your mouth and listen, it will be just fine

    Suicide
    Will not provide intervention, suspension
    The coil we've received
    Is winding down to the tension, the tension
    There is no longer a need
    For any kind of complexion, complexion
    We will not stop until we have all the pieces

    Well okay, we'll hear you out
    But first we'll tie you down and show you just what pain's about
    We'll give water to the children, we'll all drink wine
    Just shut your mouth and listen, it will be just fine

    When the fans of the plan start to scream and shout
    Well they opened up their mouths and only beasts came out
    That's what you get for going swimming in the lake of fire
    (STAND UP) Yeah (COME OUT) Yeah
    Then you disconnect the phone and ride the snake
    Two nails to the hand is all it takes
    When the ugly ones will steal your face
    (STAND UP) Yeah (COME OUT) Yeah
    (STAND UP) Yeah (COME OUT) Yeah
    (STAND UP) Yeah (COME OUT) Yeah
    (STAND UP) Yeah (COME OUT)

    THAT'S RIGHT WE WANT YOU TO STAND UP NOW

    Well okay, we'll hear you out
    But first we'll tie you down and show you just what pain's about
    We'll give water to the children, we'll all drink wine
    Just shut your mouth and listen, it will be just fine
    __________________________

    These lyrics are INTENSE. Gosh I don't even know where to begin. It probably has a different meaning than this, but when I read it I see nothing but religious allegories. Jesus being hunted down, being tied down and tortured and nailed to the cross. Also, "fans of the plan" referring to what's regarded as "Satan's plan" which was that we wouldn't have to choose between right and wrong, we'd come here and all live righteously and go back to heaven. Then he and his followers were cast out. From then on they could speak only evil. Guess that's what you get for going swimming in the lake of fire. And "the ugly ones will steal your face" could be referring to both depictions of the devil as twisted ugly and monstrous (when Lucifer was not regarded as monstrous or ugly at all) and to the Antichrist, who is evil but will make everyone believe he is actually Jesus.

    And of course, all of this can be related to anyone else however they choose to relate it, but... wow. Powerful.

    General CommentI love the music- it's really awesome. On the other hand, the lyrics aren't that impressive.
