Run, run, run to your grave
Run, run, run to your grave

Run, oh, run, run to your grave
Run, oh, run, run to your grave

Cause they're coming for your brain but
They will leave with your head
And they've got money and science
And they will leave you for dead

Sleep, sleep, sleep in your tomb
Sleep, oh, sleep, sleep in your tomb

Don't bury your body with your diamonds
Cause you know they'll dig up your grave
And don't hold on to your riches
Cause when you die, you're a slave

And emotion is a simple test to the synapse
Don't let it fool you into thinking that you've got brains
And the more you feel, the more you will take with you
So cut the flesh and let your blood flow to the drain

You've got to
Tear, burn, soil the flesh
God will do the rest
Scream, cry, pray, confess
God will do the rest

Scream, cry, pray, confess
God will do the rest
Scream, cry, pray, confess
God will do the rest

    General CommentHoly crap this song is good. I LOVE how the amount of jumping around and dance you want to do while listening to this song is exactly what the song is saying we should be doing with our lives. They overlap perfectly. This song puts you in the perfect mood to go out and live your life to the fullest like the song suggests.

    General CommentIt's that little electronic metronome of sorts in the background that makes this so damn catchy. I completely agree with Silver195's interpretation.

    General CommentI couldn't disagree more. The song is suggesting we commit suicide "cut the flesh and let the blood flow into the drain" so God can take care of the rest. The song extrapolates a sarcastic criticism of religion. I thought that much was obvious.

    "Cause when you die you are a slave"

    This fits far more with the tone of the rest of the album. It's not a "feel good" song at all, despite the upbeat instrumentals.

    My OpinionSuch a contrasting song. The sound is crazily catchy and fun, but the lyrics clearly talk about what horrible things death does. Grand, graaand. I enjoy the song, nonetheless.
