"Millionaires" as written by and Mu Talley....
We fall asleep on the runway underneath the neon crucifix.
Where they left the light on for us tonight.
Fed myself to the sickness and purge myself to the cure.
We watch the nurses pace the cage.

You and I, we're never gonna die.
Never gonna die in the white lights.
You and I are never gonna die.
Servants suffocate the king.

We've come to take what we don't need.
And build a prison where cathedrals used to be.
We burn every office, Zombies prowl through the school chanting,
"this is ours to love and take apart at will"

Here we are right now.
These wires there woven webs, conceal the blueprints from me.
Here we are right now.
Sometimes we kill the lights.

Pretend that we survived.
We're never gonna die

    General CommentShort but brilliant song, the meaning is kinda hard to tell, I think it refers to a relationship and humanity at a whole, that it always ends in darkness, instead of in the light... donno...

    General CommentReffers more to humanity than relationship, I think...

    How we always think we're immortal and we're "never going to die" but really the darkness comes at the end, no matter who you are.. everyone's destined to die.

    General CommentTo me, it has two possible meanings: religion and money. Most likely money. The basic premise is that supreme dominion is, and always will be, in the hands of the rich: "This is ours to love and take apart at will."

    "These woven webs conceal the blueprints from me" is James' lament of how things are changing solely to meet the expectations of the rich. Basically, that they've masked the original beauty ("blueprints") of things with "woven webs" and "wires."

    "Sometimes we kill the lights/Pretend that we survived/We're never gonna die"
    Dying here is probably metaphorical. When the current millionaires pass out of existence, there will always be more to take their place, and the cycle of corporate ruin will persist.

    Phew. You can tell I'm bored.
