Walking
Waiting
Alone without a care
Hoping
Hating
Things I can't bear

Did you think it's cool
To walk right up
And take my life
And fuck it up
Well did you?

I see hell in your eyes
Taken in by surprise
Touching you makes me feel alive
Touching you makes me die inside

Walking Waiting
Alone without a care
Hoping
Hating
Things I can't bear

Did you think it's cool
To walk right up
And take my life
And fuck it up
Well did you?

I hate you

I see hell in your eyes
Taken in by surprise
Touching you makes me feel alive
Touching you makes me die inside

I've slept so long without you
It's tearing me apart too
How'd it get this far
Playing games with this old heart
I've killed a million pretty souls
But I couldn't kill you

I've slept so long without you
I see hell in your eyes
Taken in by surprise
Touching you makes me feel alive
Touching you made me die inside

    General Commentactually lestat is singing to marius, if u read the series marius is who made lestat into a vampire and hes singing to marius, basically lestat is saying why me to marius. why did u choose me to become a vampire
    "Did you think it's cool To walk right up And take my life
    And fuck it up Well did you?"
    bascially marius abandoned lestat later on and thats how marius fucked up lestats life

    General Commentyes, these lyrics are totally beautiful and awesome. I think the song is about someone you hate but love. "I've slept so long without you, it's tearing me apart too.", "Did you think it's cool to walk right up, to take my life and fuck it up?"...

    General Commenti'm guessing this song is about lestat and jesse. Basiclly lestat is singing this to jesse.

    the first section of the song is how lestat is feeling, then he is talking about how she walked into his life and started to fuck things up. then the chorus, when he first met her it was at the admorals arms and she was surprised by her knowledge of him, "clever librarian". then towards the end he talking about how he is like that she is a moral and he is kinda falling in love with her and he couldnt kill her because of that.

    i really like this song, i wish that john davis would be able to sing it though, but the current singer for it is also very good

    General Commenti don't know... i think it can kind of be reversed to jesse singing to lestat. and also, jay gordon's singing in this song is better than jon davis' in the movie. jon's version was just... ugh.. you know? but, jon rocks my socks! i love korn and all, but his voice just dusn't right for the song...
    But also, it could be Lestat singing to Akasha... you know, she just came along and fucked up everything. and he couldn't kill her... without killing himself as well. you must stop drinking before the heart stops.

    General CommentTechno - except for the fact that the movie fucked up everything in the dialogue. She went to meet him at his concert to see if he was real. She was astonished that he was a real vampire; she was astonished by the fact that he knew her name. It made no mention of her being a librarian in the book, except for the work she did in the Talamasca. One of my many quarks with the movie....*twitch*

    General CommentA god point when interpreting the Lyrics from Queen of the Damned is to forget the book in it entirety, it will only confuse you as it had me for so many a night, The way I look at it is this...The Song Is written for Marius who after Taking Lestat from his "world" leaves him without so much as a godbye when Lestat find Akasha's and Enkil's resting place, in the Medditerainian Isles. (Now I know this is a far departure from the book) Now Alot of People may say that the song was written for Jese but thats not possible, because when the movie starts the song has already been wirtten, and Lestat and Jesse don't meet until about halfway through...

    And to Loon, I feel your pain man, though my saituation is a bit different...

    My ex, and I met in a very similar fashion she just walked right up to me and we started talking...(do you think it's cool to walk right up to take my life and fuck it up, Right?), well she changed my entire way of thinking and after just over nine moonths told me she didn't want to be with me...(this was in august), since then I miss holding her in my arms (I've slept so long without you, It's tearing me apart to!)

    Well thats my little speil for today,
    Good Fright, Good night

    General CommentThere are many ways to see the meaning of this song....but the truth is we are not the character so therefore we can only assume what he means by his songs.....it took me a while to see what Jese meant by Redeemer being about the girl with the violin....but I suppose I can see it that way when told that that is what it is suppose to represent....but this song can take on many different meanings with many different characters....since we are all individuals and interpret things differently than one another....we can only say what we think and listen with a patient ear to those around us.....I see that it could be about Marius, and Akasha...but not so much Jesse because, as Eternal Darkness said, the song was written before he ever met Jesse...but when taken in that context it could mean that that would be impossible for that to be Akasha....because although he had drunk her blood when he was young...he wasn't given the challenge of killing her.....so that leaves only Marius to be the logical character......but it could also be that this is simply a song for a movie and Jon wrote it because he was given a meaning, and then was asked to make a song out of that meaning......maybe this is just one instance where we are not meant to analyze....I don't like to think so....because analyzation brings faith and mystery into our hearts....and without that, I personally would feel dead inside...... nunc per ludum dorsum nudum fero tui sceleris.
