Walk with an impure mind
Revelations unkind
Abject denial of the flesh I feel

Endure and make my mark
It's never time to start
believing everything will all work out

Bloody knuckles, empty cavity
Swift disposal, empty cavity

We've blinded ourselves sick
To create room for it
Never arriving when it's needed most

Anticipation burns
Unquenchable we learn
Left holding nothing but the will to live

Bloody knuckles, empty cavity
Swift disposal, empty cavity

Why?
Why?
Why?
Why?

Negative takes it's toll
Constant release and hold
Beware that trust that you instill in me

Beware the trust that you
Beware the trust that you
Beware the trust that I instill in me

Bloody knuckles, empty cavity
Swift disposal, empty cavity

Choke it up
Choke it back
Choke it down
Choke it away

    General CommentI think this song is about how he gets angry at how hard it is get some ass sometimes. He walks around 'with an impure mind' thinking about sex but not getting any. 'We've blinded ourselves sick' implies that he masturbates and it doesn't appease his urges. Anticipation burns and his 'unquenchable' lust could be temporarily assuage if someone would just give it up but that scenerio never arrives. 'Bloody knuckles' might imply that he goes around fighting people to release some of his sexual frustration. getting nothing takes it's toll and as a result he is a violent sociopath who is not to be trusted.
    Come on kids AMH is bad ass lets get some comments on em even if to just tell me I'm way off and twisting his words into something perverted.

    General CommentI was never really into this song. I could happily listen to every song on the whole album but skip this one when it came on. When "The Feeding" came out, it seemed to take this style more than the others, and through listening to that album made me appreciate this song more.

    Now I can happily listen to the whole album, heh.

    Song MeaningMy interpretation of the meaning is dependent on two facts:

    The lyricist/band are actually thinkers.
    The lyricist/band are trying to alight a new idea on the listener.

    The name of the song, itself, should lend some hints to the "meaning". "Americunt Evolving Into Useless Psychic Garbage". This would mean your "average" american who has "no interest in thinking" and rather "maintain the status quo". I place these memes in "quotes" because they are loaded notions that would require dissertations of their own to explore.

    "Walk with an impure mind
    Revelations unkind
    Abject denial of the flesh I feel"

    Christians, Saturday night-sinners, Sunday morning-saints.
    Denying the flesh, denying "our nature" for the revelations of scripture.

    "Endure and make my mark
    It's never time to start
    believing everything will all work out"

    Persevere but don't step out of line, don't try to exceed your limitations, there's a "grand plan".

    "Bloody knuckles, empty cavity
    Swift disposal, empty cavity"

    Bloody knuckles, grinding hard work, swift disposal, not thinking about what just happened.
    Empty cavity, empty "soul", "heart".

    "We've blinded ourselves sick
    To create room for it
    Never arriving when it's needed most
    Anticipation burns
    Unquenchable we learn
    Left holding nothing but the will to live"

    The notion of the "will to live" is a Schopenhauerian (German philosopher) concept. Everything has a "will to live" and desires to "make a mark". Nietzsche took this idea, and extended it to the notion of a "will to power". We should all have a will to power, not simply a will to live. Nietzsche decried the "blinding" effect of "faith"/religion to the "will to power".


    "Negative takes it's toll
    Constant release and hold
    Beware that trust that you instill in me"

    Here, I believe, he says that we don't allow "nature" to take its course, and to beware anyone who has a "way of life" to "sell" you, even him. Ultimately, you have to rely on your own sense of reality, not others, to be able to thrive.
