"Resurrection" as written by Jerry Caiafa, Paul Caiafa, David Calabrese and Michael C. Emanuel....
Complications inside of me
Reminds me that my heart won't always beat
The ugly face of death that's smiling
At my rotting teeth

I will die here in this sorrow
I was waiting for tomorrow
Palpitate the pulse until
You feel my heart explode against the wall

Oh
Talk about me
Laugh about me
Cry about me
Nail me to the cross
I'll be a martyr for the hated
The weak, the ugly, the lost

I will die here in this sorrow
I won't wait for tomorrow
Palpitate the pulse until
You resurrect my soul from the wall

Whoa
Talk about me
Laugh about me
Cry about me
Nail me to the cross

Whoa
Whoa
Whoa

    General CommentPalpitate means to beat with excessive rapidity. LOL and as for the referances to the fictional character named Christ you must be talking about being nailed to a cross. That was a way of torture by the Romans to anyone who opposed them and it then became famous because of the fictional character. He became a martyr for Naziholics hypichristians everywhere. Just as the person in the song became one to our kind.

    General Comment"our kind"...as if we are a species, just because we like the misfits. i enjoy how you made it the main point of your entry to express that christ is a "fictional character". just the way you wrote it was funny.

    General Commenti do this the song is making a reference to christ since the song is called resurrection and it mentions
    'I'll be a martyr for the hated' and
    'Nail me to the cross'
