Flee today with me and we can hide
Until they want you
Where the strange creatures play
Mystic games of strength, disassociate

Seal my fate.
Seal my, seal your
Until they eat their own young


This is a lonely war tonight
And I'm forsaken
Are you a lonely one, too?
Oh!
This is a lonely war tonight
We're soldiers waking
They were the lonely ones, too


Leave your stain
And love my wounds tonight
Leave like they all do.
Where the strange creatures play
Endless games of fate with a reprobate

Seal our fate.
Seal our, seal your
'Til we eat our own young


This is a lonely war tonight
And I'm forsaken
Are you a lonely one, too?
This is a lonely war tonight
We're soldiers waking
They were the lonely ones, too


This is a lonely war tonight
And I'm forsaken
Are you a lonely one, too?
This is a lonely war tonight
We're soldiers waking
They were the lonely ones, too


This is a lonely war tonight
And I'm forsaken
Are you a lonely one, too?
Are you a lonely one, too?
(Soldiers breaking...)
Are you a lonely one, too?

    General CommentB-Side from DECEMBERUNDERGROUND. Great song, though I'm not digging the whole 'Eat our own young' lines.

    General CommentThe meaning that comes across to me has the theme of sobriety and a dying society.

    A ‘lonely war’ is spoken of throughout the song this is the war of choice. Choosing to indulge in substances to solve problems or staying sober and confronting the problems you’re faced with. In the song this is a losing battle, the line ‘untill we eat our own young’ is basically stating that we’re slowly becoming animals and there is no hope for the future.

    I’m not saying that there is only one meaning this is just what it means to me.

    General CommentI agree much with Koll, not putting offense to anyone else who has commented on this song. I ADORE this song, and I love the lyrics. I agree that someone (Davey, I guess you could say) wants to have one last thrill with someone and let them be who they want to be before they are taken away by savages. I agree with the fact that the "lonely wars" are afflictions with themselves that they are trying to overcome, and their "fates" which like Koll said are the futures of them becoming vicious animals are going to be forgotten for the moment so they can enjoy what's left of their freedom. Also, I MAY be wrong, but I believe that the lyrics are:
    "Where the strange creatures play in mystic caves of strange, disassociate"...it may not make sense, but that's what I find from the majority of lyric sights.
    AND: "The soldier's waking" not "We're..."
    If someone is completely positive of the lyrics, could you please inform me of them by posting them? Thank you.

    General CommentBrilliant, brilliant song.

    I'm not really sure what is it about, but I guess Koll and celestialdream could be right...

    And I think the lyrics are right.
