"Goddess Bound" as written by and Tim Millar Moe Carlson....
Take everything your parents
Taught you, throw it to the dogs
Its forgotten flesh of something dead
Its blood drips from your jaws.

Take everything your school
Has taught you, throw it to the dogs.
It's meat that dries in summer
Heat and reeks now of its rot.

It speaks now of the fate
That we await, to be forgot..
Just as mountains live outside of rocks
And time itself outside of clocks

We hope that life exists
Beyond our lonely bones.. In the pine box.

From the bottom of my heart, at the top of my lungs
From the corner of my eye at the tip of my tongue

Take everything your parents
Taught you, throw it to the dogs
Its forgotten flesh of something dead
Its blood drips from your jaws.

Take everything your fucking school
Has taught you, throw it to the dogs.
It's meat that dries in summer
Heat and reeks now of its rot.

Its everywhere
Its everything, everyone.
It's anywhere, it's anything, it's anyone

It's the neighbour saving face
By saying grace, today for yesterday's behaviour
Oh my god

Live to fuck and fuck til death
Drink to sorrow and regrets

    General CommentI think the first part talks about breaking conventions and the changing of society. then it also deals with death, putting forth a picture of rotting flesh in death and asking the listeners if there is an afterlife ("We hope that life exists beyond our lonely bones in the pine box") . I think that the last part talks about hypocrisy and repenting for something and going back to it; the band then spells doom by depicting the last moments of such a person ("those who clasp their chests are lives as yet unfinished as they gasp their final breath.")

    General CommentI think the first bit is talking about lessons and when we learn shit from our school, we always just forget it all in the summer. 'Reeks now of it's rot'
    Using meat as a metaphor perhaps?

    General CommentAnd thus begins the climax of the album, in which our goddess is murdered by none other than us. Drawing parallels to The Dissentience, we throw the meat of our past to the dogs and abolish the way of the past, just as people did whilst overthrowing their leader, and just as they were, we will be forgot. We are but rocks in the great mountain of existence, and we do not matter in the least in the long run, despite our hope of life outside the pine box. Meaning exists everywhere, even in something as minute as my lungs or my eye, or in any human being on this earth. Pulling back to Wretch, our humble religious fellow believes he can be forgiven for all his sins in a simple act of prayer to his god, and his pent up lust turns to deranged fantasy, which spells out the nature of his god, one who is self created, and will exhibit any characteristics one wishes it to have. The final line also brings up wretch, as the goddess ("love") begets (gives birth to) the irony that those who believe in life beyond death fear death, and see life as unfinished even if they "believe" they will carry on.

    My InterpretationAlrighty then, let's try that again. Had analysed the entire song and wrote it all here and then I accidentally closed the tab. Great work jackass.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "Take everything your parents taught you, throw it to the dogs
    Its forgotten flesh of something dead its blood drips from your jaws."
    It's about Christianity during the persecutes. Roman emperor Nero blamed the Christians for the Great Fire of Rome and thus, they were persecuted. Christianity started to grow rapidly, however. People started teaching it to each other, their children etc. Then I remembered my religion teacher telling my class about how Roman soldiers would throw the caught Christians to wild dogs to feast on.

    "Take everything your school has taught you, throw it to the dogs.
    Its meat that dries in summer heat and reeks now of its rot.
    It speaks now of the fate that we await, to be forgot." The first line: see above. The second one, no idea. The third line means the promised afterlife. The "to be forgot" part may mean God may not grant us eternal life after all.

    - No idea on the two lines after this, probably just some metafors or some shit -

    "We hope that life exists beyond our lonely bones in the pine box.
    From the bottom of my heart, at the top of my lungs
    From the corner of my eye at the tip of my tongue - its everywhere
    Its everything, everyone. It's anywhere, it's anything, it's anyone"
    Once again, afterlife. The next three lines most likely reflects the rapid growth and spread of Christianity. Just look it up yourself, it'll save me time and space.

    "The neighbour saving face by saying grace today for yesterdays
    Behaviour, bound to tethers girls in leather unveil the true face
    Of his saviour."
    The message of Christianity is kindness and forgiveness towards others. I think it also means how quickly people changed their attitudes once they went Christian. Don't really know about the second line, it's some of that goddess stuff Arif mixed into this theme.

    Not too sure about the rest, I'll have to think about them later. I'll at least try to get this up before I close this tab again.
