It's been a while since I knew you before
Hindsight says I was so much to blame
But even then, you possessed so much more
I buried my guilt under my fantasies

I never knew what it would do to you, oh my God
I dealt a hand and played with fate
But I still feel, and I surrender to, your intoxicant

But I want you to really know me
But when I try to get into your space

I run into your Firewall
Medusa's home
Built out of hurt and pain
Welcome to the Firewall
If I get too close
I will go down in flames
Eh, just look at me now
I'm on fire.

And if I could, I would get down in your soul
And clean up the mess that I made

Maybe will and grace
Will replace your faith
And we can embrace

You'll never get to know me
Unless you
Let me touch your face

A victim of your Firewall
The devil's own
Destroy your enemies
I dance into your Firewall
When you're done, there'll be nothing left of me

Suck me into your flames, and let me burn deep down inside until I...

    General CommentThis song represents unrequitted love, the Firewall is something that keeps unwanted things out, in this case, the love that the speaker is giving is unwanted by the recipient, which is why he runs into her firewall. He wants her to love him "Maybe will and grace will replace your faaith and we can embrace, You'll never get to know me unless you let me touch your face." Medusa's Home seems to mean the non-consequential glance that the girl gives to him, it turns him to stone, not a very likeable state...! (metaphorically)
