I feel the top of the room come off,
kill everybody there
and I'm watching all the stars burn out,
trying to pretend that I care

But I didn't,
(no-one ever does)
and I won't,
(no-one ever will)

Can't you see it's all flown out of my hands
and our clothes (are all too often ripped)
and our teeth (are all too often gnashed)
and it lasts as long as it possibly can

but I just don't
I just don't accept this
'cause I just don't accept this at all

and I just don't
but I just don't accept this
'cause I just don't accept this at all

and I just don't
and I just don't accept this
'cause I just don't accept this at all

and I just don't
and I just don't accept this
'cause I just don't accept this at all

Faces sweaty, arms and legs,
what a glorious set of stairs we make [x3]

Faces sweaty, arms and legs,
We kill everyone with
Arrowheads [x75]
(Thank god that's over)

I feel the top of the room come off,
kill everybody there
and I'm watching all the stars burn out,
trying to pretend that I care

But I didn't, no-one ever does,
and I won't, no-one ever will

Can't you see it's all flown out of my hands
and our clothes (are all too often ripped)
and our teeth (are all too often gnashed)
and it lasts as long as it possibly can

    Song MeaningThe narrator is expressing his extreme apathy at the destruction and death occuring all around him, while trying to muster some empathy for it all, but only being able to “pretend to care".

    Song MeaningFrom reading the book that came with the record I'm pretty sure this is about "The Great Hunter" building a staircase out of bodies towards the heavens and then killing God with a bow and arrow(s)

    My Opinion"..but I didn't, no one ever does, and I won't, no one ever will."
    That's just what it sounds like to me and I think that makes more sense. Just a suggestion.

    General CommentI think this is an expression of disgust at the behavior of humans. Disbelief, perhaps, at how easily people are willing to escalate to violence.
