Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Beautiful child turning into stone with your eyes so dim i shudder bitterness runs through your soul like small children confusion dances in the dusk of your mind Exchange your blessings
For deception good night kiss
Skin like winter
Cherished one fading away i can see your breath begging to resurrect into depth hiding scars back laced with splinters audience of a congregation make your way to the front close your eyes and grieve
you played the part so well

    General Commentit seems to speak of someone who was turned away from reliegon by a bitter taste of religeon. "Backlaced with splinters. Audience of a congregation make your way to the front, close your eyes and grieve, you played your part so well."

    It makes sense i guess, its a good song. I wish the person who contributed the lyrics had of gotten the lyrics in an order instead of packed together, its easier to understand what they mean if its punctuated.

    General Commenthey that's the best I could find. I made a few corections (couldn't find punctuation) but it's still a hard one to get... If you find correct lyrics, mail me and I'll fix it...

    General CommentI really dont have any thing to say about what the song means but this is a remake of their song on the EP record they did with TFU. It sounds a little warped and it takes some time to get used to it. but it is a really awsome song, except the clapping (or what ever it is) is kind of wierd.

    General CommentThis is pretty cool song. I think it is about the secret life of a church member who "exchanged his blessings, for deceptions good night kiss." possibly about the murder of a friend or family member.

    General CommentUgh. That first part with the clapping. It makes me shudder just thinking about it. That part could definately use some work.

    General CommentI think the song is about people that practice fake religion, or about the people who go up to every altar call at a church, but don't get anything from it, and never really change, they just flirt with christianity for a cheep thrill. But I'm probably wrong, I usually am.

    General Commentalright, really lets use our heads a little. "skin like winter" this represents the cold, the color white, and lonliness" and for skin to be like winter makes me think that they are talking about a body of a friend. they goon further to day "congregation make your way to the front close your eyes and grieve you played the part so well" so i think its about a child's funeral. he either wasnt excepted by the church or by his family. and the entire ASHES TO ASHES DUST TO DUST where do they say this? at FUNERALS! exchange your blessings, for deceptions good night kiss. im pretty sure zao talks about the parents of the "fallen child" whos funeral is attended. might be wrong though. no proof, just my interpretation.
