Left Chicago, left the filth.
Hopped a boxcar, headed south.
Lust with 13 Siamese twins.
Bought for science, kept for skin.
Twenty souls touch themselves.
Lord help them! I help my self.
This is my circle of instant friends.

These are my friends now, these are my friends now,
These are my friends now, these are my friends now,
These are my friends now, these are my friends now,
These are my friends now, these are my friends now.

I'm on assignment for the FBI,
Miami, Florida. Child sacrifice.
The swamp is deep and warm and old.
I think she loves me, I love her too.
Satan brands, and home made tattoos.
You can't believe the things I've seen.

These are my friends now, these are my friends now,
These are my friends now, these are my friends now,
These are my friends now, these are my friends now,
These are my friends now, these are my friends now.

We sit, and drink, all day now.
We sit, and drink, all day now.
The sun beats down outside,
and I can't think of a better reason to.
Too late now, too late to tell me what I've become.

These are my friends now, these are my friends now,
These are my friends now, these are my friends now,
These are my friends now, these are my friends now,
These are my friends now, these are my friends now.

I'm all alone in a big white house, and...
I'm all alone in a big white house, and...

    General CommentAnd I think the lyrics point more to him being put in prison. I think he's an undercover FBI agent who gets put into this situation where he has to go to a Florida prison. "Child sacrifice," "Satan brands and home-made tattoos," "You can't believe the things I've seen," and "Cinder block temple" all point in that direction. I think he's saying that by being put in jail for the FBI, the cellmates are his instant friends and he fades into them. He becomes a criminal by participating in prison life and maybe "And I fade" is something in reference to how a lot of deep under cover missions get forgotten and permanently become the character they took on in the mission.

    General CommentThis song was made about the experiences of the band mates in Bozeman and the stories they used to hear from older family members.

    Anyone who knows their music will see this.

    It's actually telling the story of more than one people and how each story eventually affected one another.

    General CommentIt's really hard to say what this song means.. I think their are probably several audio clues hidden in the song...

    I believe this song could be about 2 things...

    1. "I'm on assignment for the FBI, " leads me to believe that this is actually a cop making a confession of the numerious terrible things your bound to see on duty. This also supports the "you can't believe the things I've seen..."

    2. Zombie outbreak. Even though non of the lyrics support this.. It always lingers in the back of my head. he talks about horrors.. And the repetitive ending "all alone in a big white house.." brings out feelings of isolation and survival. I keep thinking about the movie "Diary of the dead" if any of you have seen that...

    Anyway.. I'm interested to hear what you guys think.. I'm sure my 2nd theory spawned because of the left 4 dead game...Let me know what you think..

    General CommentIt's "Twenty-six souls touch themselves." It refers to 13 Siamese twins (which are really 26 people).

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a man being used for an FBI assignment and having no training on how to cope with all the things hes going through he cant handle it and finaly snapes. he ends up inside a mental instuition for going insane for what hes seen and done
