If priests are princes' hollowed shadowed souls
If devils are but angels cast to know
I'd live forever with a sharp regret
It might be a surprise to know I never wished for death

A hint of misery made its way along
To those who've never harmed or never wronged

If honesty changed the hearts of men
Who could contend?
If all i thought were true
In this great divide that is my life
I fear to think of all I'd undo
If all i thought were true...

Even my own ears would never care to know
What deep inside ourselves out hearts behold
A sky in shards, our world's unraveled parts
Impossible to piece as one in our unending dark

    General CommentI think it should be "who could pretend?" for the first chorus, and contend for the second.
    As far as meaning goes...your guess is as good as mine.

    General Commentthe first line should read
    'if priests are princes' hollowed shadowed souls'

    think about it. if priests and princes' hollowed shadowed souls doesn't make sense with the next line.
