End me like a sick dog.
Lose my body in vain.
Break my horse’s legs.
Store me in a vase.
I’ll fight my way out by teeth.
Wave the stampede on with a flag.
While you’ve convinced yourself of your existence,
As the only form of life,
Bestowed beneath the gift of grace.
If I fire it straight through you,
My only hope is that it finds its way back to him.
If I fire it straight through you,
My only hope is that it finds its way back to...

If I said you were the source,
I only lied to displace myself from the blame.
If I said you were the source,
I only lied to displace myself from the blame.
You have nothing to be proud of.
You have nothing to be proud of.
If I fire it straight through you,
My only hope is that it finds its way back to...
If I fire it straight through you,
My only hope is that it finds its way
its way back to him.

I didn’t feel the hate like this.
I didn’t feel the hate like this.
I can’t find the words,
I can’t let it go.
Oh God,
I didn’t feel the hate like this.

We walk in amazement to the kill,
Caught in it’s glory.
We walk in amazement to the kill,
Caught in it’s glory.
We walk in amazement to the kill
We walk in amazement to the kill
We walk in amazement to the kill
As we are inert in our exalting awe.

I’m not the jury or the judge.
I am the gallows and the noose.

I’ll fight my way out by teeth.
Wave the stampede on with a flag,
While you’ve convinced yourself of your existence,
As the only form of life.
the only form of life.

    General CommentIt sounds pretty vague, but I think the song is about 2 people, with a girl becoming a demon by doing bad things because he doesn't respect life. And a guy becoming also demon, because he's trying to prevent the girl from doing bad things.

    End me like a sick dog.
    Lose my body in vain.

    [The guy is not proud of what he has become.]


    Break my horse's legs.
    Store me in a vase.

    [Same as stated above, I connected this with a demon, who are supposed to have horse/goat legs.]


    I'll fight my way out by teeth.
    Wave the stampede on with a flag.

    [I think this means guy will do everything to prevent turning himself into something bad.]


    While you've convinced yourself of your existence,
    As the only form of life,
    Bestowed beneath the gift of grace.

    [I think this means that the girl thinks that there is no afterlife in Heaven/Hell (Hell in this case) and therefore doesn't respect life.]


    If I fire it straight through you,
    My only hope is that it finds its way back to him.
    If I fire it straight through you,
    My only hope is that it finds its way back to...

    [The guy thinks that the girl could be possessed and wonders how it can be cured.]


    If I said you were the source,
    I only lied to displace myself from the blame.

    [I think this means that the guy blames the girl, but because the girl was such a "Charmer" he tried to solve her problems by saying it was his fault for what the girl did.


    You have nothing to be proud of.
    [Speaks for itself.]


    If I fire it straight through you,
    My only hope is that it finds its way back to...
    If I fire it straight through you,
    My only hope is that it finds its way it's way back to him.

    [Same as stated above.]


    I didn't feel the hate like this.
    I didn't feel the hate like this.
    I can't find the words,
    I can't let it go.
    Oh God,
    I didn't feel the hate like this.

    [This means that he's shocked that he would end up like this.]


    We walk in amazement to the kill,
    Caught in it's glory.
    We walk in amazement to the kill,
    Caught in it's glory.
    We walk in amazement to the kill
    We walk in amazement to the kill
    We walk in amazement to the kill

    [I think the guy has become that way because he did something wrong but he was so "Charmed" that he didn't really care.]


    As we are insert in our exalting awe.

    [I think this means they are "inserted" into the situation of going to hell, but try to fight it back.]

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a charmer who's basically a predator framing a less charming patsy for harming a victim close to the patsy

    ------------------------------

    End me like a sick dog.
    Lose my body in vain.
    {here the charmer's saying he's a beast that should be put out like one, but it won't stop what's in motion}

    Break my horse’s legs.
    Store me in a vase.
    {more bestial self references suggesting literally arresting their motion / ending their life}

    I’ll fight my way out by teeth.
    Wave the stampede on with a flag.
    {the charmer will do whatever they can to get out of this through the power of the mob}

    While you’ve convinced yourself of your existence,
    As the only form of life,
    Bestowed beneath the gift of grace.
    {while the patsy holds faith in 'the gift of grace' and doesn't look around for help, their solipsism them makes them an easy mark}

    If I fire it straight through you,
    My only hope is that it finds its way back to him.
    If I fire it straight through you,
    My only hope is that it finds its way back to...
    {the charmer hopes that pinning this on the patsy goes further to hurt the original victim}

    If I said you were the source,
    I only lied to displace myself from the blame.
    If I said you were the source,
    I only lied to displace myself from the blame.
    {the charmer is telling the patsy that they're only being framed to remove scrutiny from the charmer, it's not really about the patsy}

    You have nothing to be proud of.
    You have nothing to be proud of.
    {telling the patsy not to be proud of bearing the punishment despite doing good / being good / having bunk faith}

    If I fire it straight through you,
    My only hope is that it finds its way back to...
    If I fire it straight through you,
    My only hope is that it finds its way
    its way back to him.
    {the charmer hopes that pinning this on the patsy goes further to harm the victim}

    I didn’t feel the hate like this.
    I didn’t feel the hate like this.
    I can’t find the words,
    I can’t let it go.
    Oh God,
    I didn’t feel the hate like this.
    {all of this didn't satiate the charmer's hate}

    We walk in amazement to the kill,
    Caught in it’s glory.
    We walk in amazement to the kill,
    Caught in it’s glory.
    {people crowd to see the spectacle of punishment}

    We walk in amazement to the kill
    We walk in amazement to the kill
    We walk in amazement to the kill
    As we are inert in our exalting awe.
    {ironic how people love to see justice in action through such barbaric eyes}

    I’m not the jury or the judge.
    I am the gallows and the noose.
    {saying the patsy's been dead since they've been targeted, it's not about who they were or what they did}

    I’ll fight my way out by teeth.
    Wave the stampede on with a flag,
    While you’ve convinced yourself of your existence,
    As the only form of life.
    the only form of life.
    {he'll do whatever he can through the force of the crowd while you convince yourself you'll handle yourself on your own}
