Light of day it warms my wounds,
I will not die here.
Light of day it warms my wounds,
I will not.

I'd love to slip away until
All they ever see are photographs.
Remove all memories and down the pill,
Let the current take me away to Zion.

My heart is pounding towards my rhythmic fate.
My eyes are blurring.
Hail my brilliant escape
Into permanent nothing!
Now, I run for the door...
Death has never tasted this sweet, before.

And Don't be afraid to live.
Living with fear is simply turning from chances to give.
See! It's all around you.
In every face, there is a story.
But instead you stay where everybody looks the same.
And you thank God for that?

I long for the day,
When I can proudly say I never judge a face.
Oh, then I'd feast with any two or three from any place.
And I'd thank God for that!
Light of day it...

To my right, a man on his knees,
I could give him a reason I could help him face the world..
Then to my left a woman in need...
It could never hurt to ask,
Even with nothing to give
You'll encourage her heart.

(Ohhh, Oh, Oh, Oh-oh-oh, Oh-oh-oh)

And oh please God spring up in me,
The means to see the importance of..
Another's world.
Never right or wrong,
Just breathing guarantees a right to voice their heart.
I want to live!
I want to live!
I want to live!
Then I turn to face the world.

    General CommentAmazing, Amazing Song! I'm not sure what the title has to do with it, perhaps it's just referring to the influence that Blackheart (or, perhaps, the devil) has over the average American (seeing as how there is an unusually hight amount of suicides in America year after year.
    This song is about suicide. Someone feels over come by life and by the urge to end it all. "I'd love to slip away until all the others see are photographs." He's tempted to down a pill and "let the current take mae away to Zion," or, heaven.
    Still, he has single-minded determination. He speaks as though lying on a battle-field with a near-fatal wound. "Light of day, it warms my wounds and I will not die here." He speaks of how relieving death could be, but then tells himself "don't be afraid to live."

    That's what it is, cowardice, to kill yourself. It's being afraid to live, even with the pain. He goes on to talk about all the good a person can do, and how worthy life is to be a part of it.
    I think the next line pertains to what many Christians believe about their religion. It's the idea that we all become identical in Christ. "Instead you stay where everybody looks the same. And you thank God for that?" That's boring!" Is what he's saying. But then he goes on about his own religious beliefs. "I long for the day when I can proudly say I never judged a face. Then I'd feast with anyone, or two, or three, from anyplace. And I thank God for that!" He's thanking God that insdeed we are all so very different from one another.

    With that in mind, he continues to talk about how we should help one another despite, and even because of, the differences that separate us.

    "PLease, God, spring up in my the need to see the importance of another's world. Neither right or wrong or here or there. Just breathing guarantees the life to voice their heart, 'I want to live!'"
    He's saying that others might have different religious beliefs, and that indeed, that's good. And we all have the desire to live and be of importance.

    "Then I turn to face the world." Perhaps to continue the war that life is, the war that brought him thus far.

    This was way too long an explanation, I know, but it's all I see in this marvelous song.
