So you and I, we've come to this place
And never did I believe that I'd survive
Now what ever happens know that I'm about honor...
...honor among thieves (amen)
So you and I, we talk a little
About the themes and all the thinking, then I die...
...a little
whatever happened about honoring thy father, mother...

...honor me.

Backtrack easy, everything's easy...tell me again?
'Is it us or them, us or them?'
Backtrack people, beware the vat people, prepare the cat people
Beware the bad people and I'm a bad man...

So you and I, we talk a little...
About the fate of all those days and then I DIE.
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO YOUR WORDS ABOUT HONOR?!?

...HONOR AMONG MEN!!!

Backtrack easy, everything's easy...tell me again?
'Is it us or them, us or them?'
Backtrack people, beware the vat people, prepare the cat people
Beware the bad people I'm a bad, bad man...

So you and I, we've come to this place
And never did I believe that I'd survive...this...
Now what ever happens know that I'm about honor...
...honor, honor, honor...

Backtrack people, everythings evil...tell me again?
'Is it us or them, us or them?'
Backtrack people, beware the vat people, prepare the cat people
Beware the bad people I'm a black cat man...

    General CommentGato is slang for heroin. Perhaps it's about how heroin makes you paranoid, dishonest, and disconnected from society? Or maybe (and this is my view) it's about that minus the heroin. I don't think Dev has done that stuff, but what do I know?

    General CommentHe said on his 'By a Thread' DVD that this song is about "pussy". I think that BobbyjointRitual is on the right track though. Seems to be about a person who has their primal instincts above all else and as a result fails to connect or empathize with others in a real way.

    Regardless, this song is pretty killer.
