Dance with me below crystal knives
Chandeliers ablaze
We'll dance in fear of our own lives
that our eyes contain
Behind these masks we renegade against the sound
We'll let our voices slowly fade and ring out

Crystal chandeliers hang
Crystal chandeliers hang
Gently swaying with our bodies, fall down
Race upon us, hammer into the ground
Crystal chandeliers hang
Crystal chandeliers hang

We dance among our shadows,
our enemies connected feet to feet

We dance among our shadows
our enemies connected feet to feet
Ill take the lead
I wont run I wont hide from this
Dance into the night

Gently swaying with our bodies fall down
Race upon us hammer into the ground
Crystal chandeliers hang
Crystal chandeliers hang

Hiding (hiding) behind a mask (only lasts til)
till you see the reflection of a liar in the glass

    General CommentI believe we've established the meaning of the song to be hidden in the last lines; the rest of it is mostly sensory description.


    One can lie to oneself all one pleases but those lies will no longer be able to fool anyone. The lies only last until realization of the lies themselves.


    Images one attempts to portray are the masks of course which in the long run are also the lies.

    My InterpretationWell, I think about it like this:

    I think the chandeliers mentioned in the song symbolize people in general.
    They can be so beautiful, but that beauty can turn into destruction.

    "Crystal chandeliers hang
    Crystal chandeliers hang
    Gently swaying with our bodies, fall down
    Race upon us, hammer into the ground"

    As for the liar in the glass part at the end, I think it means that once you face who you really are, there's no hiding it. In this case, a liar.

    Wooo I'm smart. :P

    General CommentMy opinion is that the crystal chandeliers symbolise the beautiful things in our lives..
    We all feel good when beautiful things happen in our lives and we dance (swaing with our bodies)
    but when these things are destroyed it becomes dangerous (crystal knives when the chandeliers collapse)
    but we do not stop dancing either because we believe that by keeping on dancing even without the chandeliers will make us happy (mask of happiness) or because we become self-destructive... So when the chandeliers go up in flames the flame creates our "shadow" the dark side of ourselves and we become our own enemies (enemies connected feet to feet like our shadows connect to us feet to feet) and this metaphore goes for self-destruction that I mentioned before.. Last but not least.. keeping on dancing just to have the illusion that we are still happy is bacically lying to ourselves and therefore there's the "liar"... but no matter how hard we try when we look in the mirror we will see that our happiness is actually only a mask and that it's not real!! and you will know that you are unhappy!
