"Seal My Fate" as written by and Tanya Donelly....
Untame my brain
Give me a name
Hear my faith
Seal my fate

Unholy and dirty words I gathered to me
Thinking the point was keep what's mine for me
While he's laughing
Hear my faith
Seal my fate

And when you breathe
You breathe for two
And if you think you've finally found the perfect light
I hope it's true

Unholy and dirty words I gathered to me
Thinking the point was keep what's mine for me
(While he's laughing)
On every track I fractured every back
Thinking the point was to step on every crack
(And he's laughing)
Hear my faith
Seal my fate

And when you breathe,
You breathe for two
And if you think you've finally found the perfect light
I hope it's true
You say you saw him laughing
I hope it's true
I'd like to see it happen
I hope it's true
'Cause I can feel it
I hope it's true

    General CommentI think this song is sung from the point of view of an unborn child and is about abortion. I had arguements with people who disagree. unholy and dirty words are gathered to me, maybe bastard, hence the abortion. The breathe for two bit is the part that really sold it for me though. Is a fantastic song

    General CommentI like that, smollett! Hadn't thought if that way but I like it.

    Another possibility is that it's about religion and letting go of that (thinking the point was...) - the way religion force rules and morals on you in a way. Thinking she had to be punished for being sinful (not in a very literal way though).

    General CommentI always thought this song was about a failed relationship. "and when you breathe, you breathe for two" is about feeling incredibly close to someone. "If you think you've finally found the perfect light, I hope it's true" is about loving the person so much you hope they are happy, even though you are no longer together. That was my interpretation of it, anyway.
