I am the chosen, the true son
Follow my rule to the word
You will learn, you will learn
I have provided the answer
I have submitted your role
You will know, you will know

Take the sun and cauterize
Make us pure again
All the ways we victimize
Time and time again

We are the balance, the reason
We are the chance that you take
Make no mistake, no mistake

Take the sun and cauterize
Make us pure again
All the ways we victimize
Time and time again

I'm a shadow of what once had come and gone
And I'm dying
And the pure hate that I've dealt, all that I've done
Still defiant
How another one will arrive when i'm erased

Take the sun and cauterize
Make us pure again
All the ways we victimize
Time and time again

Take the sun and cauterize
Make us pure again
All the ways we victimize
Time and time again

    My InterpretationI think it's about Jesus. The first verse is from Jesus' perspective: "I am the chosen, the true son, follow my rule to the word". He is God'd son and the rule is the New Testament.

    The chorus is from a Christian person's perspective. "Make us pure again" is in my opinion about penance and forgiveness or Jesus' crucifixion for our sins.
    "Take the sun and cauterize" is a metaphor for getting baptized in order to start a new chapter of life, one where you try to live without sinning. I am unsure of the rest.
