Last night my shadow went to heaven
My body is here
My soul in hell
Last night I killed
I can't remember
Who I killed and why I loved
Last night will never seem close to heaven
Today I Woke To The Rain Of Blood
A rain of blood (3x)

I Think I might have killed the world
But anyway I'm better off alone

A rain of blood (3x)

I Think I might have killed the world
But anyway I'm better off alone

I'm better off alone

    General Commentwhat does it say at the beginning? in the live shows I've seen on you tube Andy says something along the lines of "with each day we will spill their blood till it drips down from the sky" that part has confused me for a while now. Also I think he says laughed instead of loved, it's just his accent that makes it sound weird I think...anyway, awesome song

    General CommentThe lines at the beginning are taken from the Courtroom scene in The Boondock Saints, and are the family prayer:

    "And Shepherds we shall be
    For Thee, my Lord, for Thee
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
    So our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands
    We shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls shall it ever be
    E nomine patris, et fili, et spirictus sancti."

    And, later in the song is a clip from earlier in the same scene, "Each day, we will spill their blood, til it rains down from the sky."



    As for meaning, it makes me think of someone who woke up after going on a killing rampage or something, covered in blood. It doesn't seem hard to read in to, til you try.

    General CommentAnother great song, guess I'm being stupid again correcting lyrics.

    Last night my shadow went to heaven
    My body's here
    My soul's in hell
    Last night I killed
    I can't remember
    Who I killed or what I lost
    Last night was never supposed to happen
    Today I Woke To The Rain Of Blood
    My rain of blood (3x)

    I Think I might have killed the world
    But anyway I'm better off alone

    My rain of blood (3x)

    I Think I might have killed the world
    But anyway I'm better off alone

    I'm better off alone

    I'm not 100% if he says "loved" or "laughed"; His 'chorus' of blood sounds like it could be "a rain of blood" except you can hear him say "THE rain of blood" fairly clearly the second time he repeats the line. Also, the track IS titled "...THE Rain of Blood" so I think it's safe to assume it is "the" and not "a".

    All this gleaned by listening to the album version of the song, hope this helps.

    General CommentSounds move like "laughed" than "loved" to me, and it makes more sense since this song seems to be about a psychotic killer.
