"Scarlet" as written by and Matthew Halpern Misha Mansoor....
So many reasons why one should never entertain the taste of the red
A cry for a life of innocence is key to her head
Keep running back to kill because it might make it easier
A fear that keeps you chained down to the ritual adhere
You're a slave born into a dark world of disease
A slave that's longing for a rich way

Learning to love a disaster
Direct your soul in the essence of light
To draw the blood of the master
Flee
The stains on your wings now carry the fray

Tell that she
Embraced the glory vengeance brings
Hold, curl in tight
Illuminate the light

Punish me, punish me
An eye for an eye, an eye for the wicked
Just the sight of me
Your cold intention, burn intuitions
But with a smile on his face
Exist like you can last within this wretched place
So please forgive what I've become

Learning to love a disaster
Direct your soul in the essence of light
To draw the blood of the master
Flee
The stains on your wings now carry the

Coldest zeal
Extracted from the omen's life
One steady hand in victory
Darkness weeps
As love informs under a pure and present night
Point from the eye, endure the way

So many reasons why one should never entertain the taste of scarlet
Scarlet

So many reasons why one should never entertain the taste of the red
A cry for a life of innocence is key to

Learning to love a disaster
Direct your soul in the essence of light
To draw the blood of the master
Flee
The stains on your wings now carry the fray

    Song MeaningIt's about religion. The red bottle is the demon and the yellow is jesus. It says "never entertain the taste of scarlet." And if you watch the video, once the mustard guys have a taste of scarlet (ketchup) they love it and go full retard over it and kill each other for it. And it shows not to mess with the devil basically and you will loose your ways and commit your life to sin and total destruction.

    hope this helped ya :)

    General CommentIt seems to me that this is about a prostitute who finds love and she is escaping from her "pimp" and becoming free of that life in order to be with the other person.

    General CommentIf anyone read the scarlet letter, this song could be about a girl committing adultery.

    General CommentWell based on my own interpretation of this song,

    "So many reasons
    Why one should never entertain the taste of the red
    A cry for a life of innocence is key to her head
    Keep running back to kill because it might make it easier
    A fear that keeps you chained down to the ritual adhere
    You're a slave brought into a dark world of disease (of disease)
    A slave that's longing for a rich way"

    in the first couple of lines how it is stating how there are "so many reasons why one should never entertain the taste of the red" can be another way of stating how one should not give in to their blood lust with the following line continuing to explain how wanting innocence can lead to a form of purity.

    in the next couple of lines "keep running back to kill because it might make it easier,a fear that keeps you chained down to the ritual adhere" can be a means of stating to go on and give in because you may be forced to do so anyway, eventually doing so means that it eventually evolves into a form of ritualism as you keep fufiling the blood lust from your inner being.

    going on with the theme of giving in to blood lust the next couple of lines " you're a slave brought into a dark world of disease, a slave that's longing for a rich way" can automatically state the enviormental factors of proceeding to carry on with this. One simply born into the time of the crusades is raised to rape and pillage is bound to give into the blood lust and enjoy the proceedings and become wealthy from the spoils of the raid.

    so just looking at the opening verse introduced automatically calls forth a message of choosing between moral vs instinct. This is all i'll write for this but as i leave with a quote that clearly summerises this piece of music is "whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster, and when you look into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you"- Friedrich Wilhem Nietzsche.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about drugs. I've heard that "Red" is slang for drugs, so I figure this song tells a story of a drug addict and why you shouldn't start, or"entertain the taste of scarlet." Either that, or it's about vampires or leeches.

    Lyric CorrectionSo many reasons why one should never entertain the taste of the red, a cry for a life of innocence escapes her
    Keep running back to kill because it might make it easier, it's the scent of fear that keeps you chained down to the ritual
    Adhere! You're a slave, born into a dark world of disease, a slave that's longing for a rich way

    Learning to love a disaster, direct your soul in the essence of light to draw the blood of the master
    Flee! The stains on your wings now carry the fray

    Selfishly embrace the glory vengeance brings - hold, curl in tight, illuminate the night
    Punish me, an eye for an eye, an eye for the wicked - just the sight of me, your cold intention, burn intuitions
    You put a smile on this face, exist like you can last within this wretched place, so please forgive what I've become

    The stains on your wings now carry the coldest zeal extracted from the omen's life, one steady hand in victory
    Darkness weeps as love enfolds under a pure and present night, borne from the eye into the light

    So many reasons why one should never entertain the taste of scarlet
