"Twenty Seven" as written by and Alexander Max Hershenow Elizabeth Plapinger....
Starring at a wall for most of the day
Face down in ceilings couldn't pull away
Pray for me my soul does take
As I slip away and go insane
Don't build for me an empty grave

Don't need the promise of heaven
Just faith I'll pass twenty seven
Broken at the source
Let me be your singing corpse
Singing corpse

I have this dream where I cut out my tongue
So I can't make promises that can never be done
Brittle strands become threads
Breaking fast as the dead spreads

Don't need the promise of heaven
Just faith I'll pass twenty seven
Broken at the source
Let me be your singing corpse
Singing corpse

Don't need the promise of heaven
Just faith I'll pass twenty seven
Broken at the source
Let me be your singing corpse
Singing corpse

Don't need the promise of heaven
Just faith I'll pass twenty seven
Broken at the source
Let me be your singing corpse
Singing corpse

    My Interpretationwhen she sings " i dont need the promise of heaven, just the faith i'll pass twenty seven" i cant help but think of the 27 Club, all the artist that have died at the age of 27 (Kurt Cobain, Amy Whinehouse, Jimi Hendrix, etc.). She is saying that she does want to be great, but she doesnt want to rely on the fact that this will happen, so that way she wont die at the infamous age of 27. She doesnt want to make promises she know she might not be able to fulfill if the fame gets to her and she, well, dies. I think she just wants to live and become famous, but after she turns 27 so she can bypass the myth and you know..
    ....i hope i made some sense...
