I lived twice after my suicide
In the future or the past, I could not decide,
which one I hate the most
My body becomes both sacramental and host

Was once the son of god,
Yet was still unemployed
Offered up salvation,
surrender to the void
Perspectives crushed
I might be living in two places at once


(Cross these world, could self-destruct)


So am I sleeping on a floor,
or am I nailed to a cross
Tales! Crossed!
Tales! Crossed!

Am I sleeping on a floor,
or am I nailed to a cross
Tales! Cross!
Tales! Cross!


(No success) I survived my attempt at suicide
I could not die no matter how hard I tried
So I was found my lungs filled with gas,
face down on the ground
They put me in a hospital,
and they said I need to rest
After all my father knows best
All I can say
Is the same thing day after day

Am I sleeping on the floor,
or am I nailed to a cross

Am I sleeping on a floor,
or am I nailed to a cross

Am I sleeping on a floor,
or am I nailed to a cross
Tales! Crossed!
Tales! Crossed!

Tales! Crossed!
Tales! Crossed!

So self destructive
So self destructive

    General CommentI talked to Bradford about this song, and he said it is named after Theodor Adorno. The meaning came from an article he read about a homeless guy who thought he was the second coming. Basically, "tales cross" means that the homeless guy couldn't decide whether he was homeless (sleeping on the floor) or jesus (nailed to the cross).

    I think this is one of the best songs ever.
