You, you're everything i want
And I, I am everything you need
This night is cutting into me you tie me down, you watch me bleed
And we risk everything
Tonight

I, I am the misery you crave
And you, you are my faithful enemy
This hunger seems to feed on me
A sacred sin, a dying breed
And we risk everything

They can never know just what we've done
They can never know just what we've done
They will never know the blood we've shed
The scarlet cross we bear until the bitter end
And they, they can never know just what we've done

Nothing good will come of this
I'm screaming out with my last aching breath
I'll be yours until my dying day
But I can never see you

We, we knew how this would end
And we, we'd die before we'd live
But I'll never let you go
I will never let you go
I will never let you go

They will never know all the blood we've shed
The scarlet cross we bear until the bitter end
And they, they can never know just what we've done
(I will never let you go)
They can never know just what we've done
(I will never let you go)

We knew how this would end

    My InterpretationI think this song is about forbidden love. Maybe gay lovers or maybe even Romeo and Juliet.

    My InterpretationMy brain went a couple of places with this one.

    First of all, there's the forbidden love angle. There's also the ex-lover clinging to a mutually abusive relationship angle.

    On a more personal note, this could be, as many of the songs on the album and its successor. about womanhood. Men will never know the pain of a period or of childbirth, and even though she's constantly called weak for being a girl, and told she doesn't belong in metal, Maria clings to her femininity and its determined to prove that women are equal, if not better, than the very men who put them down.
