"The Undertaker's Thirst For Revenge Is Unquenchable. (The Final Battle)" as written by and Frost Johnson....
My eyes are glistening with the ghosts of my past
The memories that we once had

Now that you've turned the world against me
I'm only trying to win them back

With my eyes sewn shut
To shut down and bathe in these words about me
And now you're standing alone with your eyes to the sun
Standing alone with your eyes to the sun

That heaven and earth may strike their sounds together
Worlds are ruined this way
And we've all been there time and time again

The final battle always seem so still
And I will see you someday again in the clouds
And I will see you someday again in the clouds

All the world's a stage
And all the world's a stage

With my eyes sewn shut
To shut down and bathe in these words about me
And now you're standing alone with your eyes to the sun
Standing alone with your eyes to the sun

That heaven and earth may strike their sounds together
Worlds are ruined this way
And we've all been there time and time again

Time

My eyes are glistening with the ghosts of my past
And what we once had

All the world's a stage
I existed because I dreamed
And well, I dream no more
I've given up on the entire human race

Empty is the sky before the sun wakes up
Empty is the eyes of animals in cages
Empty are faces of women in mourning
And everything has been taken from them
Me? Don't ask me about empty

    General CommentThis song was beautifully written.*Nice job Craig*. I believe that its about being terrible stabbed in the back by a friend or girlfriend.I think that the writer would have trusted his companion with his life and would follow them through death and back.But his companion betrayed him, betrayed all they had, and all that they both stood for.The betrayal has left the writer so confused about everything and he wonders why he hadn't seen this wolf in sheep's skin.As a result the writer can no longer trust anyone. He truly believes that everyone is just a good actor "All the worlds a stage" and they will use you for their own personal gain even if they have to hold your head under to stay above themself.He no longer believes that people do anything to help someone other than themselves in the long run. If your on the ground and they will get nothing out of helping you up, they will leave you their. From this he has given up on the possibility that all men's hearts are nothing more than corrupt.

    Yeah, 1st comment of many to come!
    p.s-This is my personal interpretation of the song and mine alone. You dont have to agree.

    General CommentAt the end of the album version, craig says,

    "empty is the sky before the sun wakes up
    empty is the eyes of animals in cages
    empty the faces of women in mourning
    when everything has been taken from them
    me?
    don't ask me about empty"

    you might want to add that in there.

    Song MeaningPretty sure the meaning of the song is actually a WWE reference. I think I remember Jim Ross saying this about The Undertaker when he feuded with his brother Kane. The lyrics match up to the storyline also.

    General CommentIt's seems to me it's the prospective of the Devil/Satan and the final show down between him and god and how he is remember the good times with god and how is now feeling abandoned by the human race and this is his only way to resolve his problem or what ever between god

    General Commenti'm too lazy to do a whole interpretation, but what i can say, and to point out the obvious is the line
    "all the world's a stage", which many of you will probably know is taken from shakespeare.
    i just heard this song yesterday, it's pretty good.
    and sweet, first comment :)

    General Commentyeah im to lazy to do a whole interpretation too.
    but when i read this song, it makes me think of the final showdown between God, and satan. i could be way off, but thats just what i see when i read it. and this song is real good.

    General Commentthose kinda make sense but to me its something along the lines of a relationship or friendship gone wrong and the first four lines mean that the other person in has gone and started a lie about the writer, then in his situation the writer ended up going insane because he couldnt believe the lies and murdered the other. hence the blood on the walls verse. maybe thats just me? who knows? oh well this is my first post WOO!!!

    oh yea craig owens and nick martin really need to start a band :|

    General CommentThe showdown theory makes sense. I was kind of getting the God vs Satan theme in Teeth The Size of Piano Keys. Not entirely sure though, it could have multiple meanings.
