First start out with the wrong place at the right time
And that's where you'll find me.
Next add in all the fucked up shit I've done
But somehow kept inside me.

Cause while you were waiting for the sun I was turning away,
You try avoiding death by kneeling to pray,
You don't know if it's true,
But you heard there was a fire and I'm drowning in the rain.

I throw my hands up to the sky just to watch them burn,
There's no-one there that you know,
That's why I'm headed below.

Once dreaming only burning wasn't quite
A part of us in every all.
Just me and my diesease I knew it was a dream
It got too cold to let go.

Cause while you were waiting for the sun I was turning away,
You try avoiding death by kneeling to pray,
You don't know if it's true,
But you heard there was a fire and I'm drowning in the rain.

I throw my hands up to the sky just to watch them burn,
There's no-one there that you know,
(Burn them) That's why I'm headed below.

Count all this blood on my hands,
To get me in.
Save all the sins you can't stand,
To cash them in.

Just to get me in,
JUST TO GET ME IN.

I throw my hands up to the sky just to watch them burn,
There's no-one there that you know,

I throw my hands up to the sky just to watch them burn,
There's no-one there that you know,
(Burn them) That's why I'm headed below.

    General CommentThe songs on this album seem to refer to religion a lot more often than previous albums (on the cross, mosh n' church). it has been mentioned by the band that this album is about coming to terms with hating yourself.. and this song pretty much sums that up.

    The first few lines refer to how the guy has done a lot of horrible things that no one knows about, hence the "kept inside me". "You try avoiding death by kneeling to pray" is an excellent line, pretty much stating that those praying are doing so to avoid the fear of death, which is inevitable. "There's no one there that you know.. that's why I'm headed below." If heaven exists, no one is good enough to make it in, including the singer.. that's why he's going to hell.

    "Count on this blood on my hands, just to get me in. Save all the sins you can't stand, to cash them in."
    Cashing in his sins for a ticket to Hell? I'm not sure, it could be hypothetical, but it seems he's just restating the fact about all the bad things he's done that he can't take back. If you take Bert's story meaning about Blood On My Hands, it makes more sense.

    I tried to make sense of some of it, haha.

    To me, this part of the song sounds like he's saying "A part of this scenario."
    am I right?

    General Commenti agree with xloveforsale.
    the begining is saying that he has done wrong things, and so has everyone else. but others pray and hope the will go to hell, no die, ect. when its unavoidable.

    "I throw my hands up to the sky just to watch them burn" i think refers to him trying to hard to get into heaven and make up for the bad things, but its no use. so why try.

    "Count all this blood on my hands,
    To get me in.
    Save all the sins you can't stand,
    To cash them in"
    i think this is basically saying all the bad things he's done will definatly get him into hell and hes sarcastically telling everyone else to do as much bad things as they can bare so they can get into hell too because nobody can get into heaven.
