"Life And Death" as written by and Casey Blue Crescenzo....
When we dance it looks just like fire.
When we sing it sounds the same tone.
We all have hearts, We all have homes.
But when we die, We die, Alone.

Oh What a mess, as everything Descends
Oh what a mess, But everything amends

Shush, It was so long ago.
We always tired but failed.
And now with new found consciousness.
(wasted and waiting)
(waiting to die)

Oh What a mess, As everything Descends.
Oh what a mess, But everything Amends.

One of these days he will learn to love again. 6 times
One of these days you will learn to love again.
One of these days you will learn.

When we dance it looks just like fire.
When we sing it sounds the same tone.
We all have hearts. We all have homes.
But when we die, We die, Alone.

When we die. We die

    My InterpretationFew corrections:

    Searching was so long ago
    We always tried but failed
    And now with new-found consciousness
    We stand and wait, wasting this life

    That's what I hear in verse II.

    General Commenti personally found 2 meanings to this song

    when we dance
    it looks just like fire (the art of war: fire from bombs and guns)
    when we sing
    is sounds the same tone (gun shots sound the same for the most part)

    we all have hearts
    we all have homes
    but when we die
    we die alone (what the soldier thinks during war)

    oh what a mess
    as everything descends
    oh what a mess
    but everything amends (the mess and decline of the war, but it will eventually get better)

    one of these days
    you/he will learn to love again (im guessing they're talking about post-traumatic stress or just the impact of the war and how the soldiers either hate everything or the person they loved b4 the war. however, they will eventually recuperate and find out what it means to love, once more.)

    General CommentI agree, this also is good for The dear Hunter because he joins the army to escape his memories of Ms. Leading. So through all the death that he has seen and caused he comes out hating what he once loved (he is reborn). Hence the title Life And Death.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure in the first verse, it's:

    "We all left hearts
    We all have homes"

    Meaning they left their loves behind for the war, but they still have somewhere to go home to.
