I made a tomb for all the incompatible cells I could take
I brought bells to the wake
And you, you didn't mind shedding your beautiful European blood as I screamed - "Death to the murderers we've loved all our lives!"

I was good with names
I had a way with faces
I was the dominant theme in a number of places
And you, you didn't mind mixing your beautiful European oils for a still life
Oh Candice, we should've run for our lives!

When I'm at war I insist on slaughter and getting it on with
the hangman's daughter
She needs release
She needs to feel at peace with her father, the fucking maniac...

Desperate times call for desperate measures
I wanted you
I wanted these treasures, too...

    General Comment@joetheshow, I love the guitar there as well.

    I wish I knew what this song was about. It seems all over the place and simultaneously abstract.

    General CommentThis song is about a one sided agument pertaining to a night of passionate love making envolving the defloring of one verry willing Europian girl who has fallen susceptible for the man singing the song. He`s telling her that even though she knew that he had been *cough* around she didn`t mind him being her first love. But loving such a man has it repracautions seems as he refers to her as tresure for a desparate time. He even insults her loaded father. I love how Bejar captures a sentual mood with the relaxing yet haunting meloy.
