"Carrion" as written by and Jeffrey Cleve Ling Benjamin Michael Gordon....
Carrion
In a moment I'm lost
Dying from the inside
Her eyes take me away
Tear me apart from the inside out

Dead eyes speaking volumes
But our lips refuse move
Could this ever be the last time?
The final time that we see this through?

Give me the strength to return, return the breath you've stolen
Give me the means to resist (resist)
Her heart I've broken again
Reflection built upon sorrow
We're walking the darkest roads
Within chests carved with regret

In a moment I'm lost
Dying from the inside
Her eyes take me away
Tear me apart from the inside out
From the inside out
The inside out

We've been running blind
Now we're falling through the cracks
We're left running
We are running blind
Now we're falling
Falling through the cracks
Back to the world of the dead

Her shining eyes (her shining eyes)
Her shining eyes mark out return
Back to the world of the dead

In a moment I'm lost
Dying from the inside
Her eyes take me away
Tear me apart from the inside out
My love I left
My heart I left
With my promise to return
A promise to return

A promise to return

A promise to return

    My InterpretationFirst of all.... PWD = awesome...

    IMO this song is about him trying to resist some girl he's with or been with.

    Everytime he meets her or is with this girl, she makes him feel like a lump of lifeless meat [Carrion = food for scavengers], trying to resist her [Give me the means to resist] but fails at resisting her [But a mass refuse to move] hoping this time he will do what he wants to do so it'll finally be all over between them [Could this ever be the last time?], tell her how he feels about their relationship, that it aint gonna work cuz they have nothing but bad memories to look back at [Reflection built upon sorrow, We're walking the darkest roads within chests carved with regret], and he is feeling bad about causing her emotional pain several times and wanting to take her pain away [Give me the means to reset her heart I've broken again] But they keep on trying to make it work although they never get to that point [Falling through the cracks, back to the world of the dead, Her shining eyes mark our return back to the world of the dead].


    I might be damn wrong about this, but this is just my humble opinion...
    (ps excuse some of my bad english... im trying... :P)

    General CommentTHESE LYRICS ARE WRONG BITCHESS!!! SHAME ON YOU!!!

    The correct ones are:

    Carrion
    In a moment I'm lost
    Dying from the inside
    Her eyes take me away
    Tear me apart from the inside out
    Dead eyes speak in volumes but our lips refuse to move
    Could this ever be the last time, the final time that we see this through?
    Give me the strength to return the breath you’ve stolen
    Give me the means to reset her heart I’ve broken again
    Reflection built upon sorrow
    We’re walking the darkest roads within chests carved with regret
    In a moment I’m lost
    Dying from the inside
    Her eyes take me away
    Tear me apart from the inside out
    We’ve been running blind
    Now we’re falling through the cracks
    We’re left running
    We are running blind
    Now we’re falling
    Falling through the cracks, back to the world of the dead
    Her shining eyes mark our return back to the world of the dead
    In a moment I’m lost
    Dying from the inside
    Her eyes take me away
    Tear me apart from the inside out
    My love I left
    My heart I left, with a promise to return
    A promise to return
    Feed them to the pigs


    Straight from the book baby!

    Best song off Horizons!!! Love it!!

    General CommentI'm able to see how people can jugde this the best song off Horizons; They haven't heard the other songs all the way through. I still haven't chosen my "favorite song" - which is basically impossible. Since the album was ... *****, just great!
    - Either way, great song.

    General Commenti think this song is about airports
    thats what it said in death before dishonour.
    if u think hardcore, carrion is a dead carcass eaten by vultures, vultures fly, so do planes, planes land at airports to take people away, vultures land at carrion on the ground to take food away. see the link? me either
