Here, on the slab I awake
And I'm freezing
There is a light up ahead
And I rise and float through the air
Through a tunnel
Now the light's up ahead

Here, in a bullring I stand
Am I dreaming?
There is a bull up ahead
And I laugh, 'Ha ha ha'
I get it, I'm dead
And this whole charade's
A fight for my soul
Red-eyed fiend
Lunges I turn while
Skeletal picadores
Stab away at the beast

I lay, I lay, I lay, I lay
I lay my eyes on the Devil
Oh fate, once again I lay
I lay, I lay, I lay

There in the stands something grabs
My attention
Like it is calling to me
It's a girl with eyes like the sea
Is she an angel sent to watch over me?

I lay, I lay, I lay, I lay
I lay my eyes on the Devil
Oh fate, once again I lay
I lay, I lay, I lay

Suddenly I remember
The girl with eyes like the sea
I turn, she winks and she smiles gently
While the bull runs straight into me

I lay, I lay, I lay, I lay
I lay my eyes on the Devil
'Blue-eyed matador', I cried
I fell for your wicked disguise.

    My InterpretationPretty self-explainatory: He's Dead and fighting to get into heaven, spanish bullfighter style and he thinks the bull is the Devil, but it isn't the bull is the trial and the Devil is the Blue eyed floozy that distracts him just enough for the bull to run over him.
