Por cuando te vi enfermo con mentiras
Este ladron cuenta se dio
Trapa mal hecho de trampas te lo juro
Que yo si te mato
Y con cada dia que se pase recuerdate
Quien era el mas poderoso

(For when I saw you sick with lies
This thief, he took notice
Trap poorly made of tricks I swear to you
And with everyday that passes
Remember, Who was the most powerful)

Don't let me
Don't let me go

There is a venom in numerical eyes
Your convalescent thorns
Upon a crown of maggots
Your father shakes inside that third glass eye
Come on and give it to me
Come on and die

In your viscera eyes
Cataracts close the blinds
Lend me your comfort
Come cry by your side

Aye, mi hijo, no me llores
porque te qito de esta cruz
Ni agachate vi caminado sin la alma de tu cuerpo
En los brazos sin luz

(Oh my son, don't cry for me
Because I'll take you off this cross
And don't duck
I saw your body walking in the dark without a soul)

They scalp our children by seven
The border we're watching
Where the other three now hide
The culprits can't be seen from a premium of glass
We shudder in this sigil then you carpe diem-tize

Don't let me
Don't let me go

There is a venom in numerical eyes
Your convalescent thorns
Upon a crown of maggots
Verucca shakes inside that third glass eye
Come on and give it to me
Come on and die

In your viscera eyes
Cataracts close the blinds
Lend me your comfort
Come cry by your side

In your viscera eyes
Cataracts close the blinds
Lend me your comfort
Come cry by your side

Wait! I've seen the ark shake from your pneumonic tongue
But the braile that you weave of itself it shall read aloud
Yes it will
I said, she's falling, she's still falling
But no one wants to come
She's crawling, she's still crawling
On your burial ground
Said, she's falling, she's still falling
But no one wants to come
I said, she's crawling, she's still crawling
On your burial

    My Interpretation:y. Viscera Eyes:

    Viscera is an organ that resides in the cavities of your body. People believe that eyes are the window to the soul; now going with the religious undertones of Amputechture... God/Spirituality is often the answer to the hole (Emptiness) that is otherwise unfulfillable with secular means. So without God/Spirituality: our soul is nothing more than a organ that fills the cavities in our body.

    "In your viscera eyes
    Cateracts close the blinds
    Let me come drown by your side"

    Cateracts = a film that develops on the eyes which causes blindness.
    Now going with the metaphor, the film which blinds our soul is created from the absence of God.

    General Comment:There was a comment on here about this being about Jesus' crucification and a possible conversation between he and one of the other guys that got crucified with him.

    "Let me let Comfort come drown by your side" supports this I believe.
    At first, Drown by your side might refer to baptism, like the guy will do anything to be saved at the last minute,
    but then I thought; The cause of death in a crucification is usually a type of drowning from fluid in the lungs. Historians and realists think this is how and why "Water" came out of Jesus when he was stabbed with the spear of destiny; they punctured a lung.

    Lyric Correction:I'm not totally confident in my translations, but here are the correct lyrics:

    "Por quando te vi enfermo con mentiras
    Este ladron cuenta se dio
    Trapa mal hecho de trampas te lo juro
    Que yo si te mato
    Y con cada dia que se pase requerdate
    Quien era el mas poderoso

    (For when I saw you sick with lies
    This thief took notice
    -I have no idea-
    And with every day that passes
    Remember who was the most powerful)

    Don't let me, don't let me go
    There is a venom in numerical lies
    Your convalescent thorns
    Are but a crown of magnets
    They fold the shakes inside that third glass eye
    Come and give it to me
    Come and die

    In your viscera eyes
    Cateracts close the blinds
    Let me let comfort come drown by your side

    Hay mi hija no me llores
    Porque yo te quito de esta cruz
    A noche te vi caminando sin la alma de tu cuerpo
    En los brasos sin luz

    (Oh, my daughter, do not cry for me
    For I take away from thee this cross
    At night I saw you walking without the soul of your body
    In the embers without light)

    Stains fall into the brick wall severed
    Four of them were watching
    While the other three did hide
    The culprit spat the seed from a podium of glass
    Shattering the sigil that you thought was deitized

    Don't let me, don't let me go
    There is a venom in numerical lies
    Your convalescent thorns
    Are but a crown of maggots
    They rot the shakes inside that third glass eye
    Come on and give it to me
    Come on and die

    In your viscera eyes
    Cateracts close the blinds
    Let me let comfort come drown by your side

    In your viscera eyes
    Cateracts close the blinds
    Let me let comfort come drown by your side

    Wait
    I've seen the arc shake from your mnemonic tongue
    But the braille that you weave of itself it shall read aloud
    Yes it will
    I said, she's falling, she's still falling
    But no one wants to come
    She's crawling, she's still crawling
    On your burial ground
    She's falling, she's still falling
    But no one wants to come
    I said, she's crawling, she's still crawling
    On your burial ground"

    General Comment:i think the chorus goes "in your viscera eyes, cataracts close the blinds" not "Cut the lights Close the blinds"
