In an ivory room, against an ivory wall, is crouched a shadow and I clash. In an ivory room within the ivory walls there is a crimson stain in the cracks.
If this is cleanliness, if this is clean, if this true righteousness is not obscene, then I am pure. Across a white floor upon the porcelain glow there lies an animal and it cries. Beneath the white floor, beneath the porcelain glow therein a secret lies and it's black.

    General CommentDavey Havok`s a fuckin` genius and this band is a punk/hardcore allstars line-up. Very graphic song.

    General CommentNeedafix, please dont say that, wether your anti-christian or not, this isnt the place to make your stand.

    As for the song, about existing in contrast to the elegedly pure and unison world.
