"Something Is Sacred" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
Taking a walk down to the mall
Smelling piss and beer and gas
That could be me in a couple years
Suckin' fumes under the highway pass

On a rainy day
While I wear newspapers for pants
And a T-shirt that says " Damn I'm good "

People look funny when they cry
'Cause they just can't let it hide
Typing into your little box
Press the cry button
It unlocks

On a rainy day
No one has a thing to say
Easier to look the other way

Take a look in the killer's eyes
And you see there's nothing there
But something is sacred in your eyes
And something to believe

On a rainy day
And as the world will blow to bits
I'll cradle you and hold you tight

    he is comparing the eyes of a killer, a very sinful person to the eyes of someone he loves and describes her eyes as 'sacred' and this gives him a sense of security and warmth that all around him the world is going to shit he can fall back on the reassurance that there are some nice, loving people out there. ... like me! hehe :)

    General CommentThere are things in this world that are sacred, untouched by irony and the general antipathy and misanthropy of modern life- there are real, genuine feelings like the love found in friendship and relationships.

    General Commentgenerally people tend not to dwell on the sad things in life and move on to the happy things. those who don't generally end up committing suicide. Being happy is a good thing, but you have to respect your sadness at least once in your life. There's gonna be rain days like it or not. you can't chase away the clouds, just let them pass.
