"Live like an angel, die like a devil." Don't let it worry you, we're down here together. We're all here: heathens, heretics, kids with blue socks. I asked some questions and wasn't satisfied with the answers. It seems that's the biggest crime since not fitting in. But we're all here: King Diamond, todd's mom, fallen angels, the decimated cultures, the kid in the corner in sweat pants. We'll find our own way.

    General CommentI think it's about how people turn toward religion to find an answer but only end up more confuzed than before and that there is no real meaning to life other than living it but we seem to think there is.

    General CommentI pretty much agree with swollendog... whether or not we adhere to religion (as prescribed by its dogmatic bosses here on Earth) is going to make no difference in the end. Plus, we don't need institutionalised relgion to show us how to lead good lives; it doesn't matter if we don't conform to 'their' template of virtuous behaviour because, as sentient beings, we can live by our own code - "we'll find our own way".

    General Commentit may sound stupid, but i think it's about asking why, and trying to find meaning, in something, anything. but that we can't "let it worry you, we're down here together" - we're all here on earth and no matter what questions we ask or the answers we recieve, we'll all still be here, and eventuall, "we'll find our own way"

    General CommentI feel that the song is about all the non-Christian (IE: non-saved) people that will either be left on earth, or go down to Hell after the Second Coming. So, he's saying that all of us (Kind Diamond, the kid in the corner with sweat pants--which is actually Todd the Rod) are all going to be down in Hell (or on earth) together. All because we weren't satisfied with the answers the Bible/Christianity gave us.

    General CommentI asked some questions and wasn't satisfied with the answers. It seems that's the biggest crime since not fitting in. ---People discriminated against in society for exercising freedom of thought.

    General Commentto me this song represents the sweeping generalizations that christianity makes through the bible and conventional "christian thought". all these stygmatized, marginalized, disenfranchised (call em what you want) people are all "down here together" ie doomed to christianities "hell", even those who simply do not adhere to popular beliefs about "style" (lets not get into that, but "kids with blue socks) are in hell. its all about that. the losers of society, ie the decimated cultures and the ones mentioned above, have been abandoned by "god" for not fitting in and conforming to societies cutthroat ways, and propagandhi is either speaking for themselves or for both themselves and these "misfits" when they say "well find our own way", meaning they dont need pop-religion and stygmatization to guide them through life and the Great Beyond (hehe). thats what i think..pretty simple. perhaps.

    General CommentLive like a angel die like a devil -- live a good life yet still go to hell (perhaps) thats the meaning

    A fair bit of the song relates to everyone being on this world together ... i see that as a everyone can work together and live a good life kind of point

    I aksed some questions and wasnt satisfied with the answers == no religion is complete although lots have some good ideals lots are based on threat for the good of the religion/god not for the good of the people

    dont live in threat of a religion live a good life in your own mind
