And I felt the suck from a vampire teething
opiate love and I collapse
And I am afraid if I sleep you’ll never love me
Now you don’t have to answer that

What did you think you’d say to convince me to listen
Well I am the one that talks to walls instead of men
And after its done and buried I will haunt our children
Till they believe there’s no God to stop my plan
yeah
When I was young I had dreams of being a someone
Tied up in fictions that’s the sun
Blinded my eyes and I was lost for most last summer
It doesn’t matter much I still feel the same

And I was a father once like you I was misguided
Stabbing a fork into my palm to see your plan
doesn’t it make you sick to know that you are causing
30 or so mens death that don’t deserve to die
So I will lie

    General CommentThe last line makes me think he's considering cause the ship to wreck somehow, because of his hurt, pain, anguish, etc. Maybe the 30 innocent men are the crew?

    Song MeaningThis song kinda confuses me.. it seems like he switches up who he's talking to.

    First stanza, maybe talking to God? Maybe even talking to Anna?
    Second stanza is probably Anna because he says "our children."
    Third stanza again, it could go either way.
    But then the last stanza is most likely talking to God... "I was a father once like you," "your plan," "causing ... men's death."

    Any ideas?
