The band in hell
Plays all night long
It's a sold-out show
And there is only one song
There is no rhythm
And there is no rhyme
It goes on forever
Until the end of time

Now the devil, he plays guitar
And Hitler plays the drums
I'm the man on the microphone
This is what I've become

I'm sorry that
I'm sorry that I love you
I'm sorry I
I'm sorry that I am what I am
Another coal on the fire

Now there was once a man
Who walked the earth with no shoes
He went from town to town
Playing rhythm and blues

And there was love in every note that he played
And there was truth in every word that he sang
He offered those who believed his guarantee
But somehow he missed me

I'm sorry that
I'm sorry that I love you
I'm sorry I
I'm sorry that I am what I am
A damnation to you
I'm sorry

    Song MeaningI get the feeling that this song doesn't have that simple of a message. Electric Six has never done songs endorsing any particular religion and I doubt that they would start with something like this. It seems like a song about a man in a downward spiral (crime related? maybe drugs, with some of their other songs) who is bringing down the woman that he loves. He realizes this, but can't stop what he's doing, hence the "I'm sorry that I am what I am".

    General Commentit definately about missing out on salvation that was provided by Jesus Christ and having eternity to think about it.
