Caught in a world that's plagued by something they called love.
A paradigm of illness is the beast I have become.
The sights that I have seen could nearly bring me to my knees.
I've seen exactly what it is I never want to be,
but I keep it deep inside myself.
It's within me.
Keep it deep within yourself and sink with me.
Last night I had the misfortune to see it all first hand.
"Evacuate the premises" was the innate first command.
What drives the need for all of this?
And will I ever understand?
Has someone failed to tell me of this master plan?
But I keep it deep inside myself.
It's within me.
Keep it deep within yourself and sink with me.

    General CommentHe saw some horrible accident first hand and lost a loved one. he doesnt see the "master plan" of why this person was taken away. someone at the scene probably said "evacuate the premises". he keeps the images deep within himself.

    General CommentI love this song...I'm kinda confused about the relevance of the title...Malleus interpretation of the song seems to make sense, it seems like it is a pretty tragic song.

    General CommentI thinks about relationships in general - like what is the fuckin point anyway? "'Evacuate the premises'" i think means the girl told him to leave. He's saying "love" is a fucking waste anyway. He never wanted to get attached to anyone and that is what he has done. It's as if Davey thinks he's lost all rational thought "what it is I never want to be," "beast I have become"

    General CommentYou all think this stuff is about love, don't you? I think Malleus has the right idea. And no matter how "Tragic" this song seems, it seems so cool. God, I love it.

    General Comment"You're too far away
    Too far away to touch
    And this mother's love inside me
    Hurts too much"
