it's nothing big to keep the lights on
somehow it's pretty to see them
'cuz no one else will she feeds them
she's such an innocent heathen

there are such better ways to fix things
and they're soft
and I have trouble remembering

she doesn't mind to take her clothes off
she missed the Garden of Eden
and now the devil is your best friend
the lake of fire feels like cool wind
she shakes your soul up through the ceiling
the innocent heathen

    General Commenthow many girls out there believe themselves to be innocent, but when it really gets down to it, there's nothing innocent about them (except for this self-image)? this is a song about being under such a girl's spell.

    General Commentthe girl could of had it all, if she just managed a way to voice her problems in order for them to work things out, but she went back to a bad person, and he knows she makes that other guy feel great, but he knows that she still loves him, shes so innocent, but shes still a heathen. i think the song is just a way to sing out the drama about it all. she probably didn't do anything that bad, but it STILL KILLS, but really, of course there would be some kind of love there still.

    General CommentHmm. This is I think, my favorite love song...I think it's less about the fact that the is a heathen and he sees her as , but the fact that he understands that a lot of things society sees to be as sinful and heathenlike are truly just...innocent.

    General CommentHaha, I always thought he was saying, "the lake of fire feels like Cool Whip." Cool WIND is much better. I really like the rhythm of this song, and the sound of the words. She sounds like innocence in its purest sense: she is shameless and unaware that she maybe she should be shameful. Ye digg?
