its a silent murder
its a grave that sings your song
its a quiet failure
its the one that makes you strong

we are heading down
a long, empty road
we pass lost souls
blinded by the cold

watch the fire burn out
watch the curtains slowly close
waiting on the final words your heart already knows

we are heading down
a long, empty road
we pass lost souls
blinded by the cold... by the cold

its a silent murder
its a grave that sings your song

    General Commenthmmm ..my guess from the lyrics would be that its about how it's all slowly falling apart as in .."long empty road' where they will walk the road lookin for things to keep them together but that road is ...empty... hmm and the whole "lost souls, cold" ..all negatives so its a silent murder as in it's the start of the whole process of brakin up ....but then again might be completely different ..thats just my guess

    General CommentI think this song is deeper than it seems. Here is my interpretation: the song basically is saying that there is nothing in this world for us if we are cold hearted and selfish, always screwing up. selfishness/sin is a silent murder, its inside of you and it makes you a terrible person. when he says "its a grave that SINGS YOUR SONG" that means that it sounds sweet and can soothe you, but it only leads to the grave. however rising above mistakes "makes you strong". our lives are an empty road, theres really nothing here if you think about whats gonna matter in the end. The whole passing lost souls part means that we only care about ourselves (blinded by the cold) and pleasure our own desires. i think these boys know their human nature. i love soty.

    General Commenton the album this was titled Untitled, not Silent Murder. i don't know where that name came from. and yes half/half you're right this was supposed to be the intro to taste the poison.
