You were born wrapped in the pages
The words bind your mind and body
A false comfort of thin paper
You're claimed as unclean property

They say you need guilt to be good
Your brothers all remain blameless
Heart of snares and nets, hands as bands
Classified as a nameless mass

Don't look down on me
I don't look up

Kneel
Here youre not scared to die
Beg
Those dogs will lick and drink you dry
Kneel
Eat the pretty cursive lie
Beg
And you will not be scared to die

They say "In you lives an Eve" and
"Thy desire rules over thee"
"Thou shall not let witches live"
The fiction binds your mind and body

Give you away to male angels
The leaders all remain shameless
Wash away rains ancient marking
Please beg yourself for forgiveness

Must thy sorrow multiply
Thy conception in sorrow
Thou shall live in the silence
With all subjection

He may hear false answers
He lets the voices in
Must thy sorrow follow
Visions in his head

    Song MeaningIn a general sense, Cursive Eye is a song about the Bible and Old Testament Christian theology. The first section of the second verse reads like a sermon:

    "They say 'In you lives an Eve' and / 'Thy desire rules over thee' / 'Thou shall not let witches live' / The fiction binds your mind and body"

    Eve, witches, male angels, all Christian icons; many of them very paternal or even misogynist in nature.

    But unlike Christian Rock bands that glorify Christian belief and generally represent an intrinsic form of worship, Cursive Eye speaks of bondage rather than salvation. It talks about being born wrapped in the false comfort of thin paper (of the Bible) and likens Biblical devotion to BDSM with the chorus:

    "Kneel / Here youre not scared to die / Beg / Those dogs will lick and drink you dry / Kneel / Eat the pretty cursive lie / Beg / And you will not be scared to die"

    General Commentmmm... the chorus is just delicious.
    it's an outcry against human nature, i think. The way we are born, are destined, and live. to exactly try to figure out each statement is not worth it; this song is more of an impression rather than a direct meaning.
