"Birthmark" as written by Chino Camilo Moreno, Chi Cheng, Stephen Carpenter and Abe Cunningham....
I'd meet you in wrong
Bury all, then I would be right with her
In whole, cherished by two

It makes you fly; yes, I'll lie
God, I'll even lick her fucking picture
In whole, drinks won't stain this birth

It's just me; I'm bored
Carried lung now, I could be right in her
In whole, cherished by two

It makes you fly; yes, I'll lie
Drink one more so I could go right in her
In whole, drinks won't stain this birth

It makes you fly inside
It makes you fly inside
It makes you fly inside
It makes you fly inside

In spite I want to lie
In spite I will lie

In spite, I'll still lie
In spite, I'll still lie
In spite, I'll still lie
In spite

    My Interpretationi see it as chinos first temptation with a ridiculously hot groupie but having to cheat on his gf for it.

    I'd meet you in wrong
    (just a fan backstage)
    Bury all then I would be right with her
    (ignore that everyone says that he shouldnt)
    In whole, cherished by two
    (overall, it does take two to tango, right?)

    It makes you fly, yes I'll lie
    (sex with her would be the best drug ever, so he will tell her he is available)
    God I'll even lick her fuckng picture
    (well, she is THAT hot)
    In whole, drinks won't stain this birth
    (drinking more wont ruin this new experience, it will help him forget about his gf at home)

    It's just me, I'm bored
    (feels lonely w/o his girl around him so..)
    Carried lung now I could be right in her
    (fuck it, hes the singer of the band and can easily do whatever he wants)
    In whole, cherished by two
    (lets get it on)

    It makes you fly, yes I'll lie
    Drink one more so I could go right in her
    (has one more drink to trick himself to going thru with it)
    In whole, drinks won't stain this birth

    It makes you fly (4x)
    In spite I want to lie
    In spite I will lie
    In spite I'll still lie(3x)
    In spite!
    (in spite of knowing its wrong he will go ahead and fuck this chick anyway)

    General CommentOkey, not completely sure. I think it's about a secret alcoholic and his pregnant girlfriend. He doesn't want his alcoholicism to spoil the pregnancy. He's bored so he wants to have sex with her but maybe she doesn't have sex with him and drinking takes the boredom away. he's lying abouit not drinking.

    General CommentI always thought this was about getting beer goggles and fucking sumone you dont like and hoping you aint got em pregnant but knowing that if you did youd be there for the baby... and telling the kid that you loved each other and you werent drunk when its born... or something... thats just me like! tho as you can tell from my name i think its one of their best songs by far...

    General Commentcherished by two may symbolize the character (chino most likely) cherishing this girl that he will take advantage of and the girl cherishing him because she doesnt know better. its a common deftones topic imo,

    General CommentI thought this could be when Chino's girlfriend was pregnant with his some, Christian. She can't drink alcohol "Drinks won't stain his birth" and she doesn't want to have sex.

    General Commentactually, it's good for the baby, and if you're late enough on in the pregnancy, sex can actually induce delivery.
