Oh great shapes, you deserve this torture.
Oh great shapes you deserve this.
Let's end this conversation.
You've been so frustrated.
Get on the floor. Torn and beaten your life lies in my hands.
A life once wasted nothing to bring it back.
You and I withstand broken visions.
Search and destroy and we don't even give a fuck.
This is over with. Your life lies in my hands.
Fade away, don't be afraid.

    Song MeaningI just learned this song on guitar, its beautiful (:
    Anyway here are the complete lyrics with meanings:

    "Oh great shapes, you deserve this torture.
    Oh great shapes you deserve this."
    - as I said before, the "great shapes" are the forms and way of humanity/society or a person. "the torture" is necessary for them to advance

    "Let's end this conversation.
    You've been so frustrated."
    - no words can help, only actions

    "Get on the floor."
    - the only way to learn is to hit rock bottom, in other words to be down and cold ("on the floor")

    "Torn and beaten your life lies in my hands.
    A life just wasted nothing to bring it back."
    - this is the process of erasing who you were, and beginning again with a new view of life

    "You and I withstand broken visions."
    - "broken visions" means a lack of trust

    "Search and destroy.
    And we don't even give a damn.
    This is over with."
    - since there is no trust, everything is like a battefield. we don't care what gets destroyed

    "Your life lies in my hands.
    Last chance to bring it back."
    - after going through all this, you have a chance to change it all for the better

    "Don't be afraid, fade away."
    - in other words, don't live in fear. do what you want, say what you think (:

    General CommentWhy hasn't anybody commented this?
    This is such a good song.

    The keyboards at 1:47 are soooo sick.

    General Commentgreat shapes are the forms/paths that we take. they seem abstract (different), to other people, and we don't understand why people are like that
