We will not tolerate your insurrections.
Dont you look at me as your friend or enemy:
She will not tolerate your insurrections.

Dont you worry of your friends...
I know she fucking killed them all!

She would have quite the reputation if she left any survivors.
Hope and courage flow through our veins stemming into a blood bath.
Hope and courage flow through our veins stemming into a tragedy.

I've seen the ashes of this world form to a mask upon her face...
The heavens shall mark our battlefields, and angels will burn alive tonight.

I cannot escape this, this tragic devastation.

I've seen the ashes of this world form to a mask upon her face...
The heavens shall mark our battlefields, and angels will burn alive tonight.

I now now...this world was meant to burn alive.

And then the world began to crumble.
I will not stray...this is not my war.
Burn them to the ground.
Burn them all away.

For the countless bodies at the foot of your throne.
Whose blood could never fill this bottomless chalice...

I've seen the ashes of this world form to a mask upon her face...
The heavens shall mark our battlefields, in anels woe.

The heavens shall mark our battlefields, and angels will burn alive.
I know now, this world was meant to burn alive.

I've seen the ashes of this world form to a mask upon her face.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite TBP songs. I have to say, I definitly love the line "she fucking killed them all" just because it sounds so awsomely aggressive in the song. As for my interpretation, I am not entirely sure. From reading the albums lyrics, it seems like there is some sort of story going on between some guy and 2 women (one of which dies and then comes back to life to find the guy has moved on). I think it is fair to say that this character who died was murdered, perhaps at the stake or something. The writer is just saying that the world is a shitty place and he saw all of that on her dead corpse-face.
