"Sand" as written by and Isen Winneke....
Walk with me, my monster
But close those crusty eyes
The sounds I make may be abrasive
But you'll be all right
Turn off all your senses
And pretend you're home
Walk with me and you walk alone
Yeah!

At the sight of his scales
You start to shake
You can never trust a snake
At the sight of his scales
You start to scream
You can't trust a fanged thing

Grain by grain, so hot I've lost it
Echoes peck and gnaw at me
Creep, I crawl
Shake, I'm breaking
Creep and crawl
They're chasing me
Serpents!

And I feel so cold
Like the world just might explode
And if I open my mouth
It will fill full of sand
And I feel so cold
Like the world just might explode
And if I open my mouth
It will fill full of sand

At the sight of his scales
You start to shake
You can never trust a snake
At the sight of his scales
You start to scream
You can't trust a fanged thing

It's safe to say I've finally lost it
The well's gone dry and abandoned me
Creep, I crawl, begging droplets
Of anything to comfort me
Thirsty

Laying in a hot desert
Bitten by a poisonous snake
Soft venom floods my veins
I have lost my heartbeat
My poor pulse is quivering
And I've lost control
Descending to my ending
A perilous black hole

The rivers run dry and so has my veins
I'm a filthy animal begging for change
Nothing I do is going as planned
Nothing's left of me but fucking sand
Nothing's left of me but fucking sand

The sun explodes, so slow
I feel the flames and I see the snow
All that's left of my mind is sea of sand
The sun explodes, so slow
I feel the flames and I see the snow
All that's left of my mind is sea of sand

And everybody's celebrating!

I've lost my way
Desperate for change
Pursued by snakes
Bearing my name

I've lost my way
My skin's dry and baked
Fearing I'll fade
I'm the snake

I walk with my monster
He beats me down
Bestial and savage thoughts
His arms are long
Can't get up, can't get up
Nothing's as planned
Nothing's left of me but fucking sand!

    General CommentThis song is about doing drugs. Without a dought. The "fanged thing" is a needle that he injects the drugs with. He holusantes(sp?) alot during this song.
    "echoes peck and gnaw at me
    creep, i crawl - shake im breaking
    creep and crawl -- theyre chasing me
    SERPENTS!!!!!"

    But then he runs out of his drugs:
    "its safe to say ive finally lost it
    the wells gone dry and abandoned me
    creep, i crawl, begging droplets
    of anything to comfort me
    thirsty" The wells gone dry means hes out.

    "laying in a hot desert
    bitten by a poisonous snake
    soft venom floods my veins
    i have lost my heartbeat
    my poor pulse is quivering
    and ive lost control
    descending to my ending
    a perilous black hole" He over doses and almost dies

    "ive lost my way
    desperate for change
    pursued by snakes
    bearing my name"
    He doent like what hes become but hes addicted.

    That's a great interpretation. I'm happy to see no one tried to force nintendo into the meaning of this one too.

    General CommentOriginal poster: Bravo! Both in a stunning relevation for the song meaning (although most people who have encountered the 'snake' would pick it up quite quickly), and also in helping to prove that one's ability to spell is in no direct correlation to their intelligence levels.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about that one snake thing...in that one nintendo game....haha. You guys should serously stop whining so much about HtB using nintendo metaphors, it works. Anyway, ever since I read your interpretation forgivenessforsale, I never have forgotten it. I believe that you have the song meaning down. The song is best around the parts "and i feel, so cold
    like the world just might explode
    and if i open my mouth it will fill full of SAND
    and i feel, so cold
    like the world just might explode
    and if i open my mouth it will fill full of SAND " and "the sun explodes, so slow
    i feel the flames and i see the snow
    all thats left of my mind is sea of sand
    the sun explodes, so slow
    i feel the flames and i see the snow
    all thats left of my mind is sea of sand"

    General CommentYes, forgivenessforsale's interpretation has stuck with me as well everytime I listen to this song.

    Also, if you ask me, this song is quite underrated. It's just fantastic!
