Welcome to the last time
that You can buy my answer with less than a question.
I would sell the hands off my wrists if they weren't so preoccupied
with taking the bread from Your fingers and downing this cheap New Years wine
that we call Your blood.
And You can wait for midnight but my lips are sealed.
And You can wait for midnight but my lips are sealed.

In this garden I'm waiting anxiously
for my children to come and murder me.
In this crowded room, staring nervously lovers lick at their lips and wait for the kiss.
I've been sharpening
my teeth for this moment
and I'll stab with my lips but You've already won

Is there no resolution?
Well, Ill call these rafters my gallows,
and strung up by day-old party streamers
in the back of my mind I can see
the merlot dripping from Your hands and feet.

    General CommentI just added the parts that are repeated.

    And Welcome to the last time
    that You can buy my answer with
    less than a question.
    And I would sell the hands off my wrists
    if they weren't so preoccupied
    with taking the bread from Your fingers
    and downing this cheap New Years wine
    That we call Your blood.
    We call your blood.

    And You can wait for midnight
    but my lips are sealed.
    And You can wait for midnight
    but my lips are sealed.

    In this garden I'm
    waiting anxiously
    for my children to
    come and murder me.
    In this crowded room,
    staring nervously
    lovers lick at their
    lips and wait for the kiss.
    And I've been sharpening
    my teeth for this moment
    and I'll stab with my lips but You've already won.

    Your hands and feet.

    Well, i'll call these rafters my gallows.
    My gallows.

    Is there no resolution?
    And you can wait for midnight
    but my lips are sealed.
    Is there no resolution?(x5)

    General CommentIn parts, this song sounds like it's illustrating Christ's death and the hours before it. Maybe that's just me.
