This is the worst of wounds.
My soul blisters like your skin
This is a call to arms.
Knives have started sharpening themselves.
I’ve told you this before, boards and nails won’t stop the flames.
Your looks will scorch the earth as if to say that, "you are mine again."
This is my taped confession.
My nervous laugh will hurt us all the same
Remind me of nothing, corpse charades.
Dare you speak my name?

Re-dress bullet holes. Your medicine is useless. Isolation necessity.
Nothing cleanses quite like fire.
Nothing cleanses quite like fire.
Don’t scream; your worthless calls will draw attention. To Me.
I’ll make you mine;
Don’t scream; Your story’s marred with bad intentions. For me.
I’ll make you mine.

Look at me. Lie to me. Honestly? We’re enemies.

Taste the color red blood like prison wine
Know these awful things

You don’t have much time (Burning!)
Your cold heart is burning!
Your whole world is burning!
All the kids are burning!
Your whole world is burning!
Your cold heart is burning!
Your whole world is burning!
All the kids are burning! (Now!)


Nothing cleanses quite like fire.
You’ll bleed- it’s hacking at your guilty conscience You’ll see; I’ll make you mine.
Don’t scream; your worthless calls will draw attention. To Me.
I’ll make you mine

I’ve got to let you know
Infection overgrown
If they could see you now
Your thoughts are leaking out!
We’ve got to let them know
Our skin is growing old
Brush the dust off from your soul
Yours and mine were bought and sold

Look at me! Lie to me! Honestly? We’re enemies!
Teenage obsessions, taped confessions; these will hurt us all the same.
Have you tasted poison like this?
Dare you speak my name?
(Have you tasted poison like this?
Dare you speak my name?)

    General CommentI think this song might be about the movie Carrie.
    I could be totally wrong, though
