"And There Will Be A Swarm Of Hornets" as written by Cory Brandan Putman and Cron,....
I built this destruction with my own hands and with my hands I will help
Pull it down. [Repeats: x3]
And like the worker bees, silenced by that swear I'll make
A new home [Repeats: x2]
String me up, just leave me here and I'll
Find my way back home I swear [Repeats: x2]
These are not the plans I made.

This is not that life I wanted
I don't care. [Repeats: x3]
Pull it down.

With broken bones and vital organs far from functional.
I am ruined. [Repeats: x2]
Pull me down [Repeats: x2]
And I'll
Find my way back home I swear. [Repeats: x2]

[Repeats: x3]
What you can't pull from me.
Pull from yourself

We know what we have to do.
Were not going anywhere.

With blood stained glasses staring straight at me and just careless
With that lidless gaze,
I am ruined. [Repeats: x2]

I need to be saved. [Repeats: x2]
Pick me up [Repeats: x2]
And I'll find my way back home I swear [Repeats: x4]
I swear, I swear

[Repeats: x2]
What you can't pull from me.
Pull from yourself

Pull from yourself [Repeats: x4]

What you can't pull from me.
Pull from yourself

    General CommentI think this song is in reference to someone who has strayed far from where he thought he was going, and as he looks at the life that he's currently leading he realizes that it's nothing more than destruction and ruin. He says that he'll destroy the life he's created, and he'll start again.

    The second paragraph:
    "String me up, just leave me here and I'll find my way back home i swear.
    These are not the plans i made. This is not the life i wanted" is stating that where he is is still far from where he's been, but if given the chance, he'll still be able to make it back to his home, or back to his life before it was ruined

    The third paragraph has a much more negative aspect on his situation, he looks at himself as "ruined" from the mistakes he's made, but he'll still try to go home.

    "What you cant pull from me, pull from yourself". I think what he's saying here is that he doesn't have enough left of himself to be used, and that whatever or whoever was in his life of destruction should just go and tear themselves apart the way they did to him.

    "With blood stained glasses string straight at me and just careless.
    With that lidless gaze I am ruined. I need to be saved." The "blood stained glasses" could be symbolism for any number of things, but I take it as something that he sees that was ruined from his destructive life, and by seeing it he notices that he needs to be saved from where he is, not just run from it.
