"Crucified" as written by and David/donegan Draiman....
When others left before
I could bear to turn away
Now that it's come to this
Is there nothing left to say?
I've never known before
Such exquisite suffering
As I watched you walk away
I gave in to panicking

I can't believe that
This is really happening
Have I really lost again?
Desperation drives me insane
I will focus all the pain
Right into your heart

Till it makes you blind
Till the faces of your former world
Have fallen from your sight
Till you're mine
Until the voice of doubt no longer
Dominates your mind
I'm crucified

Cold and un-whole again
Crying out and questioning
Will I ever love again?
What's the point of anything?
It takes a toll again
This is where the "fun" begins
Visions haunt me through the night
Now I'm dying for your sins

I can't believe that
If you looked me in the face
You could say there's nothing left
How the silence drives me insane
I will focus all my pain
Right into your heart

Till it makes you blind
Till the faces of your former world
Have fallen from your sight
Till you're mine
Until the voice of doubt no longer
Dominates your mind
I'm crucified

I cannot feel anything, anger I've been harboring
You've nailed me to the cross, upon it will remain
I can't feel anything, rage inside is festering
You've nailed me to the cross, upon it will remain

I will focus all my pain
Right into your heart

Till it makes you blind
Till the faces of your former world
Have fallen from your sight
Till you're mine
Until the voice of doubt no longer
Dominates your mind
I'm crucified

Till the faces of your former world
Have fallen from your sight
Till you're mine
Until the voice of doubt no longer
Dominates your mind
I'm crucified

    General Commentgreat, wonderful melodic refrain!
    lyrics are somewhat typically "disturbed", seem to be about a mistress...

    General CommentSounds like a dude who got dumped , expressing his heartache using religious/masochistic imagery.

    I like the title, and the music . . . Im really not into lyrics dealling with romance. As far as lyics go, I lean more towards "Another way to Die" or "Never Again".

    General CommentIt's about David's fiance leaving him, as he said "out of nowhere" in Amsterdam. A lot of songs on this album are inspired by that.

    General CommentAbout David's girlfriend/fiance leaving him. The song is about not being to move on after a break up. You are nailed to the cross, and you will remain. You are stuck in the moment.

    Song Meaningthis post is to all songs in the album Asylum....

    all the lyrics in Asylum, even Draiman said so are metaphors to the holocaust... asylum = ghetto, never again (well duh), another way to die = a metaphor that we kill each other in many ways, the infection = the nazis (the infection must die), warrior = that we are now strong and nothing such as that can happen again to us (the jews), crucified = the scientific torture a nazi (Dr. Mangle) did, my child = it talks about Korczak that attempted to save all the orphan children, innocence = that humanity has left the innocent 'phase', the animal = the anger and pain we still hold onto can unfold itself quickly if you attempt to redo the nazi mistake, serpentine = we (the jews) thought everything was good and then suddenly the holocaust started, sacrifice = showing the other side of our mind thats says that we want a sacrifice from to world to show the sorriness and to promise nothing as such will ever happen...

    yes im a jew that lives in Israel... and that was proof of the metaphors.. its all about never again and about the asylum...

    General CommentDavid said in an interview that it's about the feeling after a break up. That you are nailed to a cross unable to move on.

    And I'd have to disagree with you BrokenTV on a few of those. Here is the short interview where David explains a few of their intended meanings.

    General Comment@xiiBrokenTV I guess anyone could make the lyrics to any song pertain to themselves and their culture. If this song was about the Jewish faith why would he use such a Christian centric metaphor? I think this song is about soldiers returning home from the Middle East to a country that doesn't wholly appreciate their sacrifice...See I just made this song pertain to something that the author probably didn't even consider whilst he was writing this.
