"Born of Desire" as written by and Roger Waters....
Wait
I Feel So Helpless In This Haze
Better Days Are Laid To Rest.
Life's A Test
World Of Stress.
Who Is Blessed?
Can I Get A Little Heart?
You Know The Deal
Our Weakness Is We Feel Torn Apart.
Still We've Got To Keep It Real.
Born Of Desire
Conspired Denial
Be Your Own Messiah Savior, Everything.
I Am The Liar
Jester To The Sire
I Burn With Your Fire
Walk With Me.
Pleasing Dreams Are Few And Far
Between The Good And Badly Needed
Breaks In Life
Just So You Don't Hate Yourself
If You Believe
In Some Kind Of Masterwork
This Was All Meant For Something
I Am Truly Sorry
Although I'm Really Laughing Inside
Because I Know
This All Comes Out To Nothing
Go On Believe
Life's Some Kind Of Masterwork
This Was All Meant For Something
I'm Sorry, Laughing Inside
For Nothing
Sorry, Laughing Inside,
For Nothing.

    General CommentNo, no thats just retarded. It's obviously about whether their is fate or everything just happens. Nothing believes there is no master plan and he's laughing at those who put so much faith in one. JMann is talking about being your own higher power and not to be reliant on something false.

    General Commenti personally think its about everything being superficial and everything you do is going to just go away after you die, that there is no god to reward you after life. but thats me, so let me know if you agree/disagree

    General CommentHell, you're interpretation is retarded cause it calls upon a TOTAL misunderstanding of Kabbalaism.

    I feel the song is self explainitory.

    General Commentthe title tells all. don't any of you know "fire walk with me" TWIN PEAKS
    Born of Desire and the lyrics explain Laura Palmer's reason why she is the way she is. hence how a hoe becums a hoe. in her case and this song, it's a fucked up way.

    General Commentgod didnt make man, man made got. god was Born of Desire. desperate individuals seek meaning in life.
    "You Know The Deal Our Weakness Is We Feel Torn Apart." as individuals, we all feel disconnected from the external world.
    "I Am The Liar Jester To The Sire I Burn With You Fire Walk With Me." weak people adopt philosophy that connects us all at the price of their inherent power by lying to themselves and giving up some amount of control over their life.
    "Pleasing Dreams Are Few And Far Between The Good And Badly Needed Breaks In Life Just So You Don't Hate Yourself" if monotheism didnt have such a long-standing tradition it would be considered a paranoid delusion by doctors. believing in an all-powerful imaginary friend instead of accepting life. its a big security blanket.
    "If You Believe In Some Kind Of Masterwork This Was All Meant For Something I Am Truly Sorry Although I'm Really Laughing Inside Because I Know This All Comes Out To Nothing Go On Believe Life's Some Kind Of Masterwork" this song criticizes the culture (monotheism- christianity and the like) that would rather submit themselves to a life of delusion than face their feeling of weakness.
    we're alive because theres no alternative. life/reality is the product of both existence and nonexistence.
