We must play our lives like soldiers in the field
The life is short
I'm running faster all the time
Strength and beauty destined to decay

So cut the rose in full bloom
'Til the fearless come and the act is done

A love like blood
A love like blood
'Til the fearless come and the act is done

A love like blood
A love like blood

Everyday through all frustration and despair

Love and hate fight with burning hearts
'Til legends live and man is god again

And self-preservation rules the day no more
We must dream of promised lands and fields
That's never fade in season
As we move towards no end
We learn to die
Red tears are shed on gray
'Til the fearless come and the act is done

'Til the fearless come and the act is done

    General CommentI think I could be about fighting (and maybe dying) for what you love and believe in.

    A call to arms.

    General Comment...a rather dark song with a gothic feel, that seems to conjure up knights, battles, sorcery and honour.

    My InterpretationThere's definitely a theme of conquering one's fear of death through fulfilment in life.

    I think there may even be a suggestion of suicide.

    I'm curious to read people interpretations of the line: "Red tears are shed on grey".

    My InterpretationIn the video clip we can see many images of Spanish Republica. The Flag, well entered the song, first appears Spanish flag colors "red and yellow" but later is added the "purple" one, which make the 3 colours of the spanish republic flag.
    There are also images tipical images which are simbols of the spanish republica.
    I might agree with ndoc:
    "I think I could be about fighting (and maybe dying) for what you love and believe in. A call to arms."

    General Commentthis song is amazing. why havent more people commented on it? theres been a lot of covers of it.

    I think its about violent love and abuse, but not necessarily bad abuse, mutual abuse maybe?

    General CommentIncredible groowe - wow the thundering bass and his haunting voice (it was recorded at Hansa in Berlin, like "Heroes" and U2's "Achtung Baby" - recognize the huge echo). Much of the power of this song derives from the distance between different registers in the music: looow, vibrant bdrums nd bass vs the ringing siren-like synth and the vocals. I remember when this appeared in the mid-eighties, it catches the feeling of being very small in a distant and dangerous world where you can't trust any values or any people.

    MemoryI heard this song while dancing in a goth club in the early 90s and every time I hear it, I'm reminded me of that moment. It's just a gorgeous song that always moves my soul.
