She starts her new diet of liquor and dick.
Just like Hollywood, but laced in sick.
The sun goes down, and so does she.
The sun goes down, and so does she.

Sold out the love that she had, left with a cut of the throat.
Drinks all 'round on her before she strolls to the moat.
The sun goes down, and so does she.
The sun goes down, and so does she.

Oh!
Count!

Count your fucking blessings!
Come on!

Count your blessings, 'cause I'm counting every lie.
Count your blessings, 'cause I'm counting every lie.
Counting every lie.

Christ, I'm asking you for just one thing.
I'm asking you for just one thing.

Eradicate this disease.

Close your eyes, pray for plagues.
Oh Lord cleanse this Earth, and bring upon our dooms day.
Oh, close your eyes, pray for plagues.
Cleanse this Earth, and bring dooms day.

She starts her new diet of liquor and dick.
Just like Hollywood, but laced in sick.
The sun goes down, and so does she.
The sun goes down, and so does she.

So clap your hands to the sound of every first born dying now.
Watch the rivers flow with blood, death will stand where life once stood.

So clap your hands to the sound of every first born dying now.
Watch the rivers turn to blood, death will stand where life once stood.
So clap your hands to the sound of every first born dying now.
Watch this rivers turn to blood, death will stand where life once stood.

Close your eyes, pray for plagues.
Cleanse this Earth, bring our dooms day.

    General CommentI think this song is him talking about a slut that he knows and how she used to be a decent person who didn't sleep around.

    ''She starts her new diet of liquor and dick''
    ''The sun goes down, and so does she''

    sexual references. the sun goes down everyday, as does she with guys.

    And he is trying to warn her away from sleeping around and asking her to stop.

    ''I'm asking you for just one thing,
    Eradicate this disease,''

    ''death will stand where life once stood,''

    How she used to be a decent person but now is nobody.

    Best song on the album!

    General CommentLOL aceindahole, just lol.

    Anyway the song, yeah it's clearly got strong references from the bible. Plagues in eygypt. The first borns dying, and the river nile turning into blood.

    Agreed he's talking about a girl who's turned into a slut.

    "Sold out the love that she had, left with a cut of the throat"
    Basically she only hurt herself when she left her love?

    Great song... I especially love the unexpectedly strong northern accents when it gets to; "COUNT YOR FUCKIN'".

    Classic.

    My InterpretationHonestly, I think this about a guys struggle through watching a friend, ex girlfriend, sister etc. going through deadly, and. or horrible things. He is praying that she will get ride of this 'disease' , but he knows it's never going to go away.


    She starts her new diet of liquor and dick.
    ~She[Whoever she might be] is strating her path towards sin, drinking and having sex every night.~
    Just like Hollywood, but laced in sick.
    ~A point saying that celebrities do this, and she doing it too, but much worse, and more nasty.~
    The sun goes down, and so does she.
    ~Saying that Once the sun goes down, either she's already drunk and passed out by then, or going down on another guy.~
    The sun goes down, and so does she.
    ~Above~

    Sold out the love that she had, left with a cut of the throat.
    ~She gave up everything, and she slit her throat, possibly killing herself, or this could be a metaphor, and it could really be saying how a cut of the throat is just like getting drunk and becoming a whore.~
    Drinks all 'round on her before she strolls to the moat.
    ~She drinks till she gets extremely drunk, and then goes back to someone's apartment, house etc. To have sex.
    The sun goes down, and so does she.
    ~Stated Above~
    The sun goes down, and so does she.
    ~Stated Above!

    Oh!
    Count!

    Count your fucking blessings!
    Come on!

    Count your blessings, 'cause I'm counting every lie.
    Count your blessings, 'cause I'm counting every lie.
    Counting every lie.
    ~This whole verse is the guy saying how lucky she is to still be alive, to not have gotten anything, or been killed by countless sex partners. And he's counting every lie she tells him when she goes out.~


    Christ, I'm asking you for just one thing.
    I'm asking you for just one thing.

    Eradicate this disease.
    ~He's asking god to give her another chance, to enlighten her so she can rid of this horrible disease~


    Close your eyes, pray for plagues.
    ~To close your eyes, and pray that this will end soon.~
    Oh Lord cleanse this Earth, and bring upon our dooms day.
    ~Someone wants to be cleansed so they can reach heaven at their death.~
    Oh, close your eyes, pray for plagues.
    ~Stated above~
    Cleanse this Earth, and bring dooms day.
    ~Stated Above~

    She starts her new diet of liquor and dick.
    Just like Hollywood, but laced in sick.
    The sun goes down, and so does she.
    The sun goes down, and so does she.
    ~Whole verse stated above~

    So clap your hands to the sound of every first born dying now.
    Watch the rivers flow with blood, death will stand where life once stood.
    ~It's saying that she is dying, slowly and gruesomely, the blood flowing like rivers out of her drained body. That where a pitiful life once stood, now is a marker of death.

    So clap your hands to the sound of every first born dying now.
    Watch the rivers turn to blood, death will stand where life once stood.
    So clap your hands to the sound of every first born dying now.
    Watch this rivers turn to blood, death will stand where life once stood.
    ~Stated above~

    Close your eyes, pray for plagues.
    Cleanse this Earth, bring our dooms day.
    ~Stated above!~

    Also at the end of the song, there is a clip of what I am guessing is a porn of a girl going..

    "Ugh, Ugh, Uh huh Cum on my face.." It's kind of like an epilogue, nothing he prayed for, or wished for happened, and she's still out there fucking everyday. The part also kind of leads me to believe, whoever's Point of View this song was coming from, is a bit delusional. Like he dreamt of her dying, the blood flowing out of her, because he wanted revenge for her life changing so quickly. But this is just my interpretation. Hope you like it.
