Far from this return
I fall out of grace
I live my whole life motherfucker babe
By this everyday
You can't take this life
Take it back from me
I live my whole life baby
I live this everyday

You see your life in my hands
Your love is covered in blood
and piss, clean me off
I'm so dirty babe
You know the money and it ain't for the taunt where do you go
You feel the hurt in my head
Let's go

And go so far
And we'll bury them
In a hole so deep

Life from this return
I fall out of grace
I live my whole life motherfucker babe
By this everyday
I see your life in my hands
And now it's covered in blood
and piss, clean me off
I'm so dirty babe

It ain't for money, baby
Baby, I just do it for fame
It's for the glory, baby
When this ends

And go so far
And we'll bury them
So hard and deep we'll go through

I tried, well
I tried, well

And we'll all dance along to the tune of your death
And we'll laugh again, we'll cry again
And it's better off this way

And never again, and never again
They gave us two shots to the back of the head
And we're all dead now

Well never again, and never again
They gave us two shots to the back of the head
And we're all dead now

I tried
One more night, well...
I tried
I tried
Well, I tried
I tried!
I tried!
I tried!
Well...

And we'll love again,
we'll laugh again
We'll cry again
and we'll dance again
And it's better off this way
It's so much better off this way
And I'm trying to see that you wanted to die

And never again
And never again
They gave us two shots to the back of the head
And we're all dead now

    General Comment(srry fr my english)
    i knew the story of the album, but i didn't understood it really, but after i heard and read the song and the lyrics it was a lot more clear.
    this is my interpretation: the guy lost his girl and want to get her back by killing those 1000 evil men. but (i dunno why) he get caught and killed or somethin; ' they gave us to shots to the back of the head, and we're all dead now.' . so now he is also dead. but he finds out that it is better to be dead with his girl(in heaven or hell) than alive without her and killing 1000 men.
    in this song it is very clear that the girl is maybe glad that she's dead(And I'm trying to see that you wanted to die) so it's better that they're both dead now.
    i thought it looks a bit like that greek myth about the guy that asks his girl back from the devil, and he agrees, but he can't look at her before they are back on earth, and then he looks and she is lost forever.

    General CommentI think this version is so much darker, I almost prefer it sometimes...I like it a lot. As for the meaning, well, it's hard to interpret, but it certainly is a dark song...
