"The Tease" as written by Francesca Maeondra Richard, Michael R. Little, Erin Thompkins and Adina Howard....
Hold your hands into the sky
Pray for my sin, instead of time
Big cities' action of my big city girl
Think she builds her own heaven
'Cause she finds it's a lonesome world
Filled with dirty street cars and dirty signs
I hope there comes a time when
I get to see your dirty mind

Hold your hands into the sky
Pray for my sin, instead of time
Low budget movies, change our low budget lives
There's something that joins our lonesome minds
And these bloody faces with their bloody knives
Say if we ever make it
We'll be somebody's

Hold your hands into the sky
Pray for my sin, instead of time
You are the massacre, the massacist, the tease
And you're captivating, standing in front of me

Is the reason, I'm still wondering why everyone we loved has broke away

Hold your hands into the sky
Pray for my sin, instead of time
You are the massacre, the massacist, the tease
And you're captivating, standing in front of me
Hold your hand into the sky
Pray for my sin, instead of time

So be my massacre, be my massacist, be my tease
'Cause you captivate me when you stand in front of me

    General Commentwell so yah i belive the song, is bout what the title is really..
    its about lust
    or thats what i got out of it

    he is so attracted to a grl, but no hes in the wrong because of his sin "lust"
    "pray for my sin, instead of time"
    which means he needs to pray for forgiveness for his sin instead of praying to be with the girl over lustful reasons
    but he knows its hard because saying your so "captivating standing in front of me"
    means its tempting and it consumes his mind
    instead of realizing the sin
    so basically she is a tease..
    teases him into lust
    and him saying the massacre, the massicist
    describing how the girl is over powering him
    and cutting his pride, so he easily falls for her, for being a tease

    and beggign verses he just describes his taughts
    hope there comes a time that i copuld see your dirty mind

    General CommentI'm not sure if this song has anything to do with the "story" I've been imagining, but if it does, I imagine it does like this...

    The singer, fresh from his "relationship" from the girl, is starting to move on. I want to imagine he's move to a new area (no real reason, I just do).

    He gets a job filming low-budget horror movies ("Something to corsets and horror", "these low-budget movies change our low-budget lives", "these bloody faces with their bloody knives") and is "captivated" with the lead actress.

    The chorus is him not wanting to get into a new relationship so fresh out of the old one that wrecked him so ("Pray for mercy instead of time") and the other part, "you are the massocre, the masochist, the tease" I think refers to her role in the film. Her character dies in the film (the massocre), which she enjoys (the masochist) and the tease references that the singer wants her but doesn't want a relationship with her... maybe she's flirting with him a little, teasing him, but he knows he just can't. ("I'm still wondering everyone we've loved has broke away")

    But it sounds a little hopeful, like maybe he does move on and find love again.

    I'd just like to mention I'm totally making this up as I go along, my imagination knows no bounds. ^^

    General Commentindeed they are a great band. I feel he is talking about god being the massacist. His massacre of a love life that he blames on god. Also this whole god concept is the tease. He is mocking god for not coming and showing himself, proving that he does exist. All anybody gets is the tease of him being real.

    General CommentThe lyrics are actually:

    Hold your hands into the sky
    Pray for mercy instead of time

    Big city lights shine on my big city girl
    I think she builds her own heaven
    Cause she finds this a lonesome world
    Filled with dirty sreetcars and dirty signs
    I hope there comes a time when
    I get to see your dirty mind

    Hold your hands into the sky
    Pray for mercy instead of time

    Low budget movies change our low budget lives
    There's something to corsets and horror
    That joins our lonesome minds
    And these bloody faces with their bloody knives
    Say if we ever make it we'll be so bloody tired (of these times)

    Hold your hands into the sky
    Pray for mercy instead of time
    You are the massacre, the masochist, the tease
    And you're captivating standing in front of me

    Is the reason I'm still wondering
    Why everyone we've loved has broke away

    Hold your hands into the sky
    Pray for mercy instead of time
    You are the massacre, the masochist, the tease
    And you're captivating standing in front of me

    Hold your hands into the sky
    Pray for mercy instead of time
    So be my massacre, my masochist, my tease
    Because you captivate me when you stand in front of me

    Song MeaningI agree its about lust:
    Hes very tempted by her. Especially because she is a tease. Shes so captivating it makes it even more difficult to object her. He wants to see her dirty side and her dirty thoughts. He falls into temptation and sins, so he prays for forgiveness.
