"By My Side" as written by Sergio Pizzorno and Christopher Karloff....
Come on, by my side
Come on, both sides
Come on, by my side
Come on, both sides

Step out of the shadows,send the children to their saints
You create these zombies, just to keep them from their saints
No communication as the master's cheat and steal
Stars ans constellations now I notice who you are

Come on, by my side
Come on, both sides
Come on, by my side
Come on, both sides
Come on

No retaliation said the poet to his kin
Separate the idols and commit your
Deadly sin
Love is put aside while you finish what you start
I collect the numbers, You protect my heart

Come on, by my side
Come on, both sides
Come on, by my side
Come on, both sides

Come on, by my side
Come on, both sides
Come on, by my side
Come on, both sides

No retaliation said the poet to his kin
Separate the idols and commit your
Deadly sin
Love is put aside while you finish what you start
I collect the numbers, You protect my heart

Come on, by my side
Come on, both sides
Come on, by my side
Come on, both sides

    General CommentI think 1P4B7 basically sussed this out.

    "Step out of the shadows,send the children to their saints
    You create these zombies, just to keep them from their fate"

    Could mean the media and corporate big boys alike create this fear in people and it's holding them back from being who they could be.


    "No communication as the master's cheat and steal"

    Is the lack of communication between corporate and between the media, but they know the number one priority is - profit. And they'll do anything to get it.

    "Stars ans constellations now I notice who you are"

    Is him discovering what is really going on.


    "No retaliation said the poet to his kin
    Separate the idols and commit your deadly sin"

    Could mean that people cant do anything about what's going on because they have no idea it's happening. And that the role models you see doing good and being ethical is put aside while they do something they know is wrong.


    "Love is put aside while you finish what you start
    I collect the numbers, You protect my heart"

    Could again mean feelings are put aside to get the job done. Numbers = money? Heart = desires? "Money buys happiness"



    Well that's my take on it. Songs mean different things to different people I guess.

    General CommentI think the last verse is actually;

    No communication from the poet to his kin,
    Separate the idols and commit your deadly sin,
    No communication while i finish what you start,
    I collect the numbers, you protect my heart.

    This is probally my favourite song on the album

    General Commentit should be:

    "you create these zombies just to keep them from their FATES"
    i think it is "retaliation" but it should be "while I finish what you start" like forever23 said.

    General CommentNo communication as the master's cheat and steal
    Stars ans constellations now I notice who you are

    has anyone an idea who is mentioned? now i notce who your are. who is meant?

    on the one hand i think it is about a girl. pretty straight forward.. like come on by my side.

    but when you look at the other verses you get an other impression

    so, on the other hand - and i think more possible - it is about the media, or more something like propaganda and lies. 'seperate the idols and commt your deadly sins' -> makes sense

    but in this case, i don't get the part with love and protect my heart and so on??? so, anyone a better idea? xD
