Shivering silhouette
Who painted this bloody sunset?
A world revolving in machined grooves
Sufferings in fated pattern with arms outflung
Caressed by steel pins through hands, feet and time
Where flies your thoughts to this or the next

Reflections reform after interruption
Shadowa echoed throughout time
In this pool or that sea
The right to kill dictated by the right to judge
Waiting on cruciform tables lies the wreck of hypocrisy

Simplified:
What is right? Crusade, War, Persecution? Or random death
Or even questions?
How about answers?
What are you afraid of?
Is that a tear on your cheek?
The earth will inherit the meek

The spear was a needle
Longinus wore a lab coat
The latest dying junkie
Fixed himself a fatal shot

When that wound sun sinks
And the ragged have shuffled home
And the silhouette grows, dies
It will be hard to imagine
But all who revere you meet despair in your eyes

    General CommentSaint Longinus was a Roman soldier who pierced Jesus on his side with his 'Spear Of Destiny' while he was on the Cross. In some recounts, it was said that the touch of Jesus' blood cured Longinus' blindness. The title of this song "Sangre" is Spanish for "blood", so this song is a stab (no pun intended) at religion being "the opiate of the masses".
