No, you don't want me to be there…
To kiss your eyes, caress your hair… or kill that pain away
As pain is my companion, solitude my guide
Your sweet affection solely offers me a threat I cannot abide


Yet you'll lose yourself in me… in me

Bleed in my arms wounds within
Fall from grace as I offer you sin
Sacrifice yourself so frail…
This pseudo-love is as good as betrayal


So place your love in the palm of my hand…
where temptation lies within… that something you've yet to feel
And as I close my fist and awake your sleeping fears
Without forbearance I will quench my thirst of your crimson tears

You've lost yourself in me… in me

Bleed in my arms wounds within
Fall from grace as I offer you sin
Sacrifice yourself so frail…
This pseudo-love is as good as betrayal


Bleed in my arms wounds within
Fall from grace as I offer you sin
Sacrifice yourself so frail…
This pseudo-love is as good as betrayal

Weep for promises which all died
A drop of tear for every lie
Love forever torn away…
I am only to cherish your pain

…I am only to cherish your pain…

    General CommentI think this is my favorite song...maybe tied with Sun Won't Shine.
    As I see it it's about a guy who is incapable of loving (and not hurting) the girl who loves him.


    Stanza 1: I see warning to her. He tells her that she shouldn't look to him to comfort her or take away her pain because he enjoys pain and sees her warmth as a threat to him.

    Chorus: It sounds like he's talking about corrupting her while she looks to him for love and support. She thinks he loves her but he's just lying his ass off.

    Stanza 2: this is where he takes his love (in the palm of his hand) then closes his fist and crushes it.
    My favorite line in the song is: "Without forbearance I will quench my thirst of your crimson tears." Now I don't know if this is suggesting violence or anything but the singer obviously lusts for her pain.

    Stanza 3: She's lost, broken, destroyed and the singer feels no remorse and can only enjoy that fact.

    Sadly numerous sentenced songs contain key grammatical mistakes that make you love Sentenced for being Sentenced but also make you want to slap them for not paying closer attention in English class. Great band though, one of my favs.
