And doesn't this road lead back nowhere at every turn? Misanthrope. Despise those of this flesh. Can this torment bring me peace? They flood the margin to feed the treatment. A cure that will never come. She becomes a study. Doesn't hope leave her? Damned. I despise those of this flesh. Misanthrope. Can the end of my rope reveal a cure? Misanthrope. Can I abandon my spite, my bitterness? Can this torment give me peace? Misanthrope. To the saviors who betray me with every breath, who sell themselves at every turn as they sink beneath contempt. They let her rot. I'd love to claw out your heart, to deny you the breath. Misanthrope. I despise those of this flesh. Gloom kills. Gloom kills time. Gloom kills time once spent on love. Rock. Can this torment bring me peace? Drowning in the white and bottomless. Hypothermia in the cold and sterile. Hooks in flesh drag her under. All I can pray is they become yours. They become yours. Can this torment give me peace?

    General CommentI can't believe there are NO comments.

    Okay I'll give it my best shot.

    To start off for the kids who don't know what misanthrope means. It pretty much means to hate man kind. People of flesh.

    " I despise those of this flesh"

    see what I mean?

    Moving on:
    Okay it talks about a woman.[duh] & the man speaks in first person. He either has hate for the woman or the world she lives in. [My guess both.]

    It's pretty spiteful. He's given up on her and love he can't find happiness, or peace. He's given up on society around him because it doesn't meet his standards. He wishes his pain & torment would become hers. " Can this torment bring me peace"

    in other words can the torment he feels belong to her instead which, would bring him to peace knowing she's suffered just as well.

    Amazing Song. End of Story.

    Cd is called -
    [Where Sleeplessness is Rest from Nightmares.]
