All of your crying will do you, no good
Stand up and straighten yourself
Just one of your moods
I'm selling the family now
To the highest bidder
Structures come crumbling down
Blessing the bruise

Take cover, run
As fast as you can
Fast as you can
Against the wind
It's all over, so long
Blood on your hands!
Blood on your hands!
I am alive

It's easy to forget your heart when
Leaving behind
How dare you compare your pain with
The look in her eyes

Hey aren't you proud of me now? (Hey aren't you proud of me now?)
I'm still calling
Surface to surface of lies
You captive the dark

Take cover, run
As fast as you can
Fast as you can,
Against the wind
It's all over, so long
Blood on your hands!
Blood on your hands!
I am alive

Because of you, the solitude,
Of love can feel so sore
Blood above your door
Because of you, the solitude,
Of love can feel so sore
Blood above your door

Take cover, run
As fast as you can
Fast as you can, against
The wind
It's all over, so long
Blood on your hands!
Blood on your hands!
I am alive

Body rhythm
Come together for an eyesore (take cover)
Blood above your door (run, run, run)
Body rhythm
Come together for an eyesore {take cover}
Blood above your door (run, run, run)
Body rhythm
Come together for an eyesore (take cover)
Blood above your door (run, run, run)

    General Commentwell, i'm not the greatest with song interps. but, the lyrics that stand out to me the most seem to have a sort of embracing of things normally seen as negativity:

    "Blood on your hands!
    I am alive"

    "I'm selling the family now
    To the highest bidder
    Structures come crumbling down
    Blessing the bruise"

    but, hey that's just what i saw in it, i'm sure it's only amtter of time before someone else comes in and gives a better meaning to it.

    I will say one other thing thouhg, the title "chinese organ thieves" is kinda funny because it sounds like an article I read about "penis hysteria" that occurs in china, It's like an urban legend of someone stealing your member, by like feeding you something or bumping up against you in a crowd.

    General CommentI think it's about a wife leaving her husband. The husband loved her but she was just surviving off of him. The first verse I think is the wife talking. She's telling him to suck it up (all of your crying will do you no good, stand up and straighten yourself. Just one of your moods.) Then she says "I'm selling the family now to the highest bidder" meaning she's found someone else who can better support her. "structures come crumbling down" is the family falling apart and "blessing the bruise" means he's trying to make something (his marriage) into something it's not.

    Then the second verse the guy/husband is talking. He says "It's easy to forget you heart when leaving behind" meaning don't forget your heart as if it weren't something important to her. "How dare you compare you pain with that look in her eyes" sounds like sarcasm like "how dare you compare your pain and suffering to her cold remorsless stare". Then he starts calling her out on the things she has been hiding "I'm still calling surface to surface of lies" then "you captive the dark" meaning she's holding on (captive) to the dark which are secrets/the unknown.

    The chorus would be the husband talking:
    "Take cover, run as fast as you can, fast as you can against the wind. It's all over, so long" Meaning he's telling her to just go ahead and go, and he's saying goodbye. "Blood on your hands" meaning she hurt him or stole his heart (hence the name "chinese ORGAN THIEVES") but he'll be alright he's not dead ("I Am Alive")

    "Because of you the solitude of love can feel so sore" meaning she is the reason it hurts to be alone in love

    "Blood above your door" like the story of the passover where God's chosen people were told to smear lamb's blood over their doors in order to prevent the angel of death from killing their firstborn son, the wife used the husband's blood (or money)over the door to keep away the her personel angel of death (poverty, being homeless, etc.)

    "Body rhythm come together for an eyesore"
    Body rhythm=heartbeat. Eyesore=something offensive to the eyes. So two hearts come together to make something aweful.

    This could be completely wrong. Sounds pretty good though. I FRAKKIN LOVE FINCH. This song is epic.
