- Ok

Burn the bed
Consummated
Rest the head
It just holds us back now

And still she keeps on looking
Of course, of course
And now there's nothing I hate as much

Wet the lips
And shut your pretty mouth
Use the kiss
Tomorrow fails to exist

And still she keeps on looking
Of course, of course
And now there's nothing I...

It all surfaces in this light
It all surfaces in this light
It all surfaces
It all surfaces

Words
Under my breath
Taking my time
Breaking your smile

Feed the wish
And let it flourish
Head for shore
And let me haunt you

And still she keeps on looking
Of course, of course
And now there's nothing I hate as much
And now there's nothing I hate as much

I will sleep
Throughout the infection
Fast asleep
Where nothing can find

Words
Under my breath
Taking my time
Breaking your smile
Everyone goes away
I can't even try
I watched you slip away

Words
Under my breath
Taking my time
Breaking your smile
Everyone goes away
I won't ever try
I watched you slip away

    General CommentIt seems like the lyrics are describing the end fo a relationship, where you still love someone but hate them at the same time for not being there. Tomorrow fails to exist, he has to break it tell someone it's over, and he hates how he has to destroy her wish, haunt her in memories. He's felt it too much to care anymore, but she still 'keeps on looking' and can't accept reality.

    General CommentThe moaning is probably just a memory of his girl, or they are trying to copy White Zombie. Either way, it gives the keyboardist something to do

    General CommentAHC don't seem like ones to copy, so i doubt that was the objective.

    anywho I see this song as: He catches his girl cheating on him and is like fuck you we are over

    and is trying to get rid over every memory he has of her

    thus t"he burning of the bed & It just holds us back now"

    when he catches her cheating on him she just stares their blankly, maybe even having a snide smile because he says "breaking your smile"

    he hates her,

    might even revert to drugs to help him deal with what just happened "I will sleep throughout this infection"

    Everyone goes away
    I won't ever try
    I watched you slip away
