"Bonecrusher" as written by and Daniel Gerard Trapp James Anthony Buddy Nielsen....
I feel the city breathe at night
Beneath the stars and meteor lights
And I've got nothing to lose

Drink up, drink up
Drink up the loneliness
Drink up, drink up
Drink up the loneliness

The streets outside, they burn with light
But I am dead on the inside
I think these pills are to blame

Drink up, drink up
Drink up the loneliness
Drink up, drink up
Drink up the loneliness

And I got romantic ideas
But they're not meant for you
And my bed's filled with black roses
To show that our love is through

I hope the fire licks my lips
And pulls me close against the wrist
This town will go down in flames

Drink up, drink up
Drink up the loneliness
Drink up, drink up
Drink up the loneliness

And I've got romantic ideas
But they're not meant for you
And my best feeling, black roses
To show that our love is through

Like a broken mirror, they're pieces of me
Like a broken mirror, they're pieces of me
They're pieces of me
They're pieces of me now

Drink up, drink up
Drink up the loneliness
Drink up, drink up
Drink up the my lonely
Drink up the my lonely

Drink up
Drink up the loneliness

    My InterpretationYep im with the idea that this has nothing to do with a girl, but faith again. This is in response to Rapture(which is the city in Bioshock :D!)
    After he realizes how little believing has gotten him, he just numbs himself with drink after drink, then of course escalates to drugs(like laureline said, its a slang term for crack! which is, in fact, wack..)
    All the stuff like the black roses, and our love is through, is just an allusion-using the love and relationship with a girl to symbolize his former faith. which is very cool! check it:
    1. all the time wasted on a girl: the time wasted sittin in church
    2. all the hardships they went through: all the thing done for the religion
    3. the commitment with the girl: all the commitments to a church(baptism)
    4. the promise that she would always be there: the church promises the same
    5. she is supposed to be able to fix any of his problems, to console him:
    that is exactly what religion is for-to console people and offer them something else.

    SO- he compares being betrayed by a girl he loveed to being let down by his faith.
    Pretty fuckin sick.

    General CommentBeneath the stars and meteor lights
    i think it's "neon lights."

    And my best feeling
    Black roses to show that our love is through
    i think it's "and my beds filled with black roses to show that our love is through."

    General Comment~This is another great song off the album...

    ~But this particular song almost seems its abotu a few different things.

    ~when he mentions "But I am dead on the inside
    I think these pills are to blame"

    ~ I think he is reffering to how he felt when he was taking anti
    depressents, and how he felt so alone

    General Commenti feel like this song is about after the realization of someone not feeling the same about you... you get drunk and "drink up the loneliness" in an attempt to get past it, which inevitably doesnt work.

    General CommentYea its that feeling u get when you try and get over something. The alcohol or drinking is the metaphor for his lack of faith. From that point on his guilt comes back
