Everything's been said
No need to fight, no need to understand
Everyone's scared of what they dream

Look around, look into their eyes
They're all dying, but none of us will cry
Look around, we've done all we could
And what's the difference?

Some day these wounds will heal
Someday will flee
Where we all can see
Someday we'll leave as we came:
Walking on nails

Everything's been told
I walked the road and only found scum
Far and wide I walked in despair
My feet bled

Look around, they're all alone
They learned to taste, but not to throw up
Walking on nails, we've done all we could
And what's the difference?

Someday these wounds will heal
And someday we'll flee
Where we all can see
Someday we'll leave as we came
Walking on nails, walking on nails

That's the fucking truth
Hit me! Wake me up!

    My InterpretationI think "walking on nails" is a metaphor for the difficult journey humanity has faced trying to build up a civilization from nothing. The artist is saying that our collapse as a civilization lies ahead, and the journey back to nothingness will be just as excruciating.
