fear love a failure to nothing but and empty shape we collide and we were dead on

are you tired enough
i think i hurt your head enough
bruising me the first touch
well fall asleep well close it up

count the days till you get rid of me, till i fall asleep i am meaningless endlessly you'd feel fine if you could bury me six feet underneath i wont see it
and now im recklessly ending it as it falls from the stage to the floor
the day ends when i say it does im afraid of him, im afraid of him

my mother sings when she's afraid of me because i hurt her more,
more than the son she sees it scares her half to death
my father sings when he's afraid of me because i hurt him more,
more than the son he sees it scares us all to death.

oh, my son why did you leave me? where did you run my son? why did you leave me?

    My InterpretationI think its about the death of a child.

    "my mother sings when she's afraid of me because i hurt her more,
    more than the son she sees it scares her half to death", is referring to how she is scarred to see her dead son (possibly at a funeral) and she is scared, while her son (who is dead) feels like he hurt her by dying. Which explains this, "oh, my son why did you leave me? where did you run my son? why did you leave me?" I basically got this impression because of the title of the album plus i've heard some of the other songs from this CD, pretty depressing. This album has made me want to weep for the aborted and the fallen.

    General Commentit's about abortion
    the whole cd is

    "count the days till you get rid of me, till i fall asleep i am meaningless endlessly
    you'd feel fine if you could bury me six feet underneath
    i wont see it and now im recklessly ending it as it falls from the stage to the floor
    the day ends when i say it does i'm afraid of him, i'm afraid of him"

    (it's talking about the mom counting the days till her abortion, just wishing she could get it over with, and the ending line is about the baby fearing the doctor)

    "my mother sings when she's afraid of me because i hurt her more,
    more than the son she sees it scares her half to death
    my father sings when he's afraid of me because i hurt him more,
    more than the son he sees it scares us all to death"

    (the baby hurts her, most women while pregnant experience pains, sickness and more, but the baby is saying if you could only see the wonderful son i could be for you, but she doesn't see that, and the dad is hurt because of her having an abortion, he'll never know his son)

    "oh, my son why did you leave me? where did you run my son? why did you leave me?"

    (i believe this to be the dad talking to the dead baby)

    General CommentI completely agree with michxm0nsters entire view on this song.
    the whole cd's about abortions, hence 'birth eater'.

    My Opinionfear, love.
    a failure to nothing, but an empty shape.
    we collide and we were dead on.

    are you tired enough.
    i think i hurt your head enough.
    bruising me the first touch.
    we'll fall asleep we'll close it up.

    count the days till you get rid of me, till i fall asleep i am meaningless endlessly
    you'd feel fine if you could bury me six feet underneath
    i wont see it and now im recklessly ending it as it falls from the stage to the floor
    the day ends when i say it does i'm afraid of him, i'm afraid of him

    my mother sings when she's afraid of me because i hurt her more,
    more than the son she sees it scares her half to death
    my father sings when he's afraid of me because i hurt him more,
    more than the son he sees it scares us all to death.

    oh, my son why did you leave me? where did you run my son? why did you leave me?

    -------------
    instead of a copy and paste, I tried clearing up this jumbled mess Oceana posted. (mostly the first part)
    -------------

    Anyway, I think this song is about son that falls out of favor with his parents. He does the things they don't want him to do. This song reminds me of one of Jesus' parables, The Prodigal Son. This parable is about a man with two sons. The younger demands a share of inheritance and goes out into the world, recklessly spending his father's money on partying and "riotous living". Soon he loses everything.

    He returns to his father and begs for his mercy, asking to become a servant of his. The father accepts him with open arms and celebrates his return. The older brother is angry at his father's forgiveness of the younger son, and also for not being rewarded for his own faithfulness. But the father responds, "You were with me, and I with you. We should celebrate and be happy: for your brother was dead and is alive again; and was lost and is found."

    However, the latter part doesn't happen in the song :O This song is mostly the question parents ask, "Where did I go wrong?"
