The hunger dressed alone
Ten years have gone and past
A vision of carnival
Dark days immaculate
Search the town of a million smiling clowns
Red cat monster beauty her hands in chains

Her eyes still glow like heaven
Broken, unsound, cut her wings off
The night, a vampire trademark
Dead men walking free

The dancing has created a fire
Two headed strong man disgust, desire

Midnight (destruct)
Break bones (for hire)
Create (sickness)
A war for purity

The Blood we shared
The love we cannot let go (I have you now)

Her eyes still glow like heaven
Broken, unsound, cut her wings off
The night, a vampire trademark
Dead men walking free

We wont turn to dust...

In all it's glory, and kept in secret books closed with wax
The dark angels will retreat and return to hell

Her eyes still glow like heaven
Broken, unsound, cut her wings off
The night, a vampire trademark
Dead men walking freeHer eyes still glow like heaven
Broken, unsound, cut her wings off
The night, a vampire trademark
Dead men walking free

Midnight, Destruct, let go
We won't turn to dust

    My InterpretationFirst off if you listen to the intro closely he screams:
    Why Won't it stop?
    Why Won't it stop?
    Why Won't it stop!

    Anyways I think the Angel was put on a sort of trial. The people at the trial (what I think to be the Vampire's clan/coven) are yelling for her wings to be cut off as punishment, possibly a punishment to the Vampire for loving someone he can't have. He's spared from a punishment so in a way he is a "Dead man walking free." Maybe this is referred to in "Beyond The Hourglass" when the latin line at the end say "The guilty man to be judged, Spare him."

    I also think the Angel was bitten by the Vampire because of the line "The blood we shared... The love we cannot let go. (I have you now!)" I also think she's a sort of "Angelic Vampire" if that makes any sense to you guys/gals. I mean She still has her beautiful eyes and wings after all.

    This was one of the first IAG songs I heard, I still love it.

    General Commenti like this song. it has a typical carnival/circus feel to it.
    maybe the meaning it is portraying is unity. 'we won't turn to dust'. as one in the 'carnival' a certain group of people is strong.
    hmm, may have to expand deeper into that one...

    General CommentIn all it's glory, and kept in secret books closed with wax
    The dark angels will retreat and return to hell


    welll you know in those movies with the sprits and stuff, and they always are looking through old books in libraries or ancient homes, and they have a candle to light their way? well i guess it kept dripping, beacuse they took too long to find what they were finding, and the candle burned out?

    The dark angels will retreat and return to hell
    ^ then they found what they were looking for, when it got dark. but the dark angels left and went to hell anyway

    General CommentI think this song can be translated in to a love story. He is searching for the vampire that turned him, whom he fell in love with, and when he finds her, she looks just as he remembered. They celebrate by dancing where it is looked upon in a bad way. Now that they have found each other they will never let go. They find the secret to immortality within aged books and as the world ends around them they are still alive to spend it with each other
