Hear one thousand screams. Hear one thousand voices. A solitary echo. Feel one thousand pains, but one is receiving a bloody invitation. Do you want to feel the warmth? To taste the life flow? Feel one thousand lost sinking into soft skin. Ingest rejuvenation. One to consume, one to renew. Demanded invitation. I offer grace, I offer blood. I offer everything till my heart is crystal clear. Do you want to feel the warmth? To taste the life? I want to taste the life to taste the life flow.

    General CommentI hate when people say this song is about giving head. I believe that this song is about the energy at a live show. One thousand screams, hear one thousand voices, a solitary echo. To me this is the crowd cheering for AFI and more specifically Davey. Ingest rejeuvanation demanded invitation- he is given all of his energy by the crowds energy, and their want to see his band. I offer grace, I offer blood, I offer everthing till my heart is crystal clear.- He pours every bit of his emotion into their live shows, until he has absolutely nothing left to give....until the next show (ingest rejeuvanation?) and anyone who has seen them live, even through a bootleg recording of a concert can attest to this.
    This song should have special meaning to anyone who is in a band. The natural euphoria you recieve from a crowd of people singing YOUR song is like no other. And if Hunter didnt have to show off so much during this song(just joking, he is an amazing bass player) maybe a couple small time bands could cover it.

    General Commentoh.my.god. if one more person says something about vampires, im going to scream. go back to your anime manga vampire porn and get a life. im pretty sure davey isn't a vampire because you know...they're not real and all.

    anyways, back to thinking outside the box...just reading the lyrics to this song makes me think its about live shows. but i'd like to think davey is deeper than that. when i listen to the song and hear "i offer grace, i offer blood, i offer everything until my heart is crystal clear", it makes me think of a spiritual high. doing whatever it takes to be touched by that purest of all energies and to be renewed again.

    or maybe im weird and the song is about vampires and weiners or something. god i hate this site....

    General CommentI'm not sure, maybe its another of Daveys vampire themed songs. others include Exsanguination, Porphyria Cutanea Tarda, Over-Exposure. It sounds like its about offering blood as in a SACRIFICe!! sounds like he is asking someone to drink his blood (feel the warmth - warm blood, taste the life flow - blood is the life flow). Im sure people had already worked this all out but just in case i wrote it on here. I dont actually know WHAT the song is about, only Davey will know that, but it could be like its about him saying to someone well what else do you want from me?!! i'l let you drink my blood if thats what it takes!! or maybe its just about a big mass sacrifice like in the aztecs where people were just constantly sacrificed for their Gods. I dont know. I havent got a clue about the song but it is a damn piece of work to play on bass!! christ it is so fast! it is a helluva song

    General CommentI agree with both daveyisagenious(for 2 reasons 1. Davey is a genious 2. the song meaning being what I thought of it) and sugarpunk because I do think Davey uses vampire based metaphores to convey themes to songs. . . wow I have posted that 3 times now

    General CommentIts about vampires.......as with many of Daveys songs....
    "Hear a thousand sreams/voices as a solitary echo"
    "Feel a thousand pains, receiving a bloody invitation"
    A thirsty vampire how would it feel knowing how it would change the lives it had to drink from to survive? Do you wanna feel the warmth, the taste of life flow???

    General CommentI definitely think it's about vampires... I listened to this song immediately after reading the book "Salem's Lot" and I was convinced... I kind of think of it as Davey singing as though he's the lead vampire.. the "queen bee"
    "Bloody invitation" "Sinking into soft skin" "Ingest rejuvination"
    "demanded invitation" Vampires need an invitation into your home before they can enter or come near you... usually involves them telling you to let them in.
