I guess some kids are just born with tragedy in their blood.
I try to wash this away.
I wanna cleanse your veins.

I can help you see the light out of your despair.
You tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking chair.

I feel the malice in my veins.
My heart swells with hatred in your name.
And when you've got nothing to turn black and blue.
You've still got Hell to look forward to.

You've still got Hell.
You've still got Hell.
Well, you've still got Hell.

I will dance on your grave.
I will dance on your fucking grave.
I will dance on your grave.
I will dance on your grave.

Oh, when you're blessed with a grave to call your own,
in my mind you'll be six feet closer to your home.
Your eulogy will be music.
Your eulogy will be music to my ears.

Oh, yeah!

I can help you to see light out of your despair.
You tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking chair.

I feel the malice in my veins.
And my heart swells with hatred in your name.
And when you've got nothing to be black and blue.
You've still got Hell,
you've still got Hell to look forward to.

Black and blue!
Black and blue!

I have never really fucking cared.
She never fucking, had fucking air.
I have never really fucking cared.
Tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking chair.
Let's go!

    General CommentI guess I'll take a shot at interpreting this.

    "I guess some kids are just born with tragedy in their blood." - States how children are born into uncaring families or born into a life full of hurtful decieptful people.

    "I try to wash this away. I wanna cleanse your veins."
    He believes that the murder of his love will take away the suffering and pain he is living through

    "I can help you see the light out of your despair." He's trying to convince his love that he can save her, even after the hell and pain she has caused him.

    "You tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking chair." He is saying that he will be a part of her suicide.

    "I feel the malice in my veins. My heart swells with hatred in your name." He is angered at the mere thought of his love, after the hell she has put him through.

    "And when you've got nothing to turn black and blue." She is already beaten and hurt, whether it be emotionally or physically.

    "You've still got Hell to look forward to." He is saying that hell is the only reward for her death while a sinner. The sins she has commmited are not yet forgiven.

    General CommentThe last few lines arent exactly the greatest song writing ever :?

    Isnt it just about him killing some ex-girlfriend or something.
    With 'whe you've got nothing left to turn black and blue' meaning that the person's already been beaten so badly they have nowhere else on their body left to bruise or something.
    I dunno, most of the songs are about the same thing really - relationships gone wrong :p

    General Commentim just wondering but why does every one put what they think it means in question just seems stupid
    By the way the new album is pretty much about hatred for a girl

    General CommentOohh the riff in this song is fucking amazing
    This songs pretty inhumane... the girl must have really pissed him off
    This might be a stupid question, but are there two vocalists in BMTH? Or is it all just Ollie?
