Sit down, I've got a story to tell you
Dare you to guess how it ends
Notice the lack of my expression
As blood and ether blend

Do you know how it feels to get cut down?
Do you know? Do you know? Do you know?

How far do you want to go over?
How far do you want to take all of this?
How far do you want to go over?

Lead me into this conversation
Tell us what you have to say
You'll be great for my collection
Sister, this all ends today

Do you know how it feels to get cut down?
Do you know? Do you know? Do you know?

How far do you want to go over?
How far do you want to take all of this?
How far do you want to go over?

How far do you want to go over?
How far do you want to take all of this?
How far do you want to go over?

And I'll take you to the end
Where the branches meet the sky
And I'll tell you that I always loved you
Then I'll show you why
Don't take me on

Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down
How far do you want to go over?
(Sit down, sit down, sit down)
How far do you want to take all of this?
(Sit down, sit down, sit down)
How far do you want to go over?
(Sit down, sit down, sit down)

Sit down, sit down, sit down
I've got a story to tell you
(Sit down, you're falling off the map today.)
Dare you to guess how it ends
(Sit down, you're falling off the map today.)
Sit down, I've got a story to tell you
Dare you to guess how it ends
(Sit down, you're falling off the map today.)

    General CommentI read some where that this song was about kidnapping someone or like being on a killing spree or something creepy like that. Makes sense, but I'm not sure if there's a deeper meaning that I'm missing.....

    General CommentIt seems to be about a guy who's trying to convince a girl he loves her and take her virginity.

    General CommentBrooks had a bulletin about this, It's a murderer talking to his next victim. I don't understand, but I'll take Brooks' word for it. ^_^

    General CommentSo I'm not entirely sure whether this band is Christian or not, but they did have a song on Christian radio. If this song is from a Christian perspective, it could be interpreted as the killer being satan. It fits really well. Reply to this if my comment needs explaining.

    General CommentIt reminds me of some one telling their testimony. Like "I've got a story to tell you, I dare you to guess how it ends" like they're telling it of their life but they still have their future so it could end up however. And like asking that person if they can relate to the narrator's story and asking like how much do they really want to know sort of thing. How the future of the world can depend on them type thing, and how good can come from mistakes and a bad story.
