'Scava' is the name of a Roman soldier included in one of the pieces/works by John Milton. 'Paradise Lost' is a poem by John Milton and that is what inspired 'Johnny Three Tears' to write...
When the end is getting closer
And the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over
Just let me die

Here's the massacre
A mausoleum fit for me
Lived a hundred years,
A hundred years I didn't see
Gave all my hope away
Isn't any left for me?
Bombs are splitting atoms
What can the future bring?
We can fill a million choirs
And wait till children sing
We can walk a million miles
And end up in the sea
And our lungs just keep filling
And lying when we breathe
The world's filled with liars
Liars like me
And I look at my child
It's finite, this feeling
Eyes blue like the sky
I see all of this meaning
I reach up to God and ask if I'm dreaming
I'm so sorry I don't have those things that you're needing
And darling, a kiss
Kiss me I'm leaving

When the end is getting closer
And the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over
Just let me die

As my body lies here broken
And I'm carried to the light
Now my heart is finally open
So just let me die

When the end is getting closer
And the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over
Just let me die

Here's the massacre
A mausoleum fit for me
Lived a hundred years,
A hundred years I didn't see
Gave all my hope away
Isn't any left for me?
Bombs are splitting atoms
What can the future bring?
We can fill a million choirs
And wait till children sing
We can walk a million miles
And end up in the sea
And our lungs just keep filling
And lying when we breathe
The world's filled with liars
Liars like me
And I look at my child
It's finite, this feeling
Eyes blue like the sky
I see all of this meaning
I reach up to God and ask if I'm dreaming
I'm so sorry I don't have those things that you're needing
And darling, a kiss
Kiss me I'm leaving

When the end is getting closer
And the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over
Just let me die

As my body lies here broken
And I'm carried to the light
Now my heart is finally open
Just let me die

    Lyric Correction"The end, sink and crawl
    Without the guilt of getting hurt"

    I'm pretty sure it's
    "The innocent can cry
    Without the guilty getting hurt."

    "It's finite, this feeling
    Eyes blue like the sky"

    "And darling, a kiss
    Kiss me on these lips"

    "And darling, a kiss
    Kiss me I'm leaving"

    Lyric Correctionyou have re written the first verse as the second.. i'm pretty sure that it goes like this (from ear)..

    Everybody says greetings and goodbyes
    Everybody pays but no one knows the price
    We know the price of sin, the sin of sacrifice
    I know I'll sing the ______ but who could save me twice?
    How much can we ask? You'll get the answer first
    How much can we kneel with the air that chills the earth?
    The air keeps getting colder, my knees keep hitting dirt
    the __________________________ without the innocent gettin' hurt
    You ask who you love and you don't know, no do you
    The spirit of God just passes right through you
    You gave away Heaven, handed right to you
    And I can see it all, tell me is it true
    Kiss me my darling (darling I need you)

    and also you missed the bridge..

    Where do we go, we go? Oh, Lord I don't know
    Where we go, we go. No....
    I SAID
    Where do we go, we go? Oh, Lord I don't know
    Where we go, we go. No....
    LORD I DON'T KNOW

    Then the final chorus..
    Sorry for the blanks, I think he says "din" or "den" at the first but I really have no idea at the second one.. Hope this helps, its an awesome song. Cheers ;D

    My InterpretationIt sounds nice that people make well jokences out of this song if so done and say forths how there are a featuring of "gay lovers" when you think about the singing ordering of characters, but I think Danny's voice is suitable to say something about love not needing a gender unto who to love. Then forth, we have the idealism of the song being a bit too romantic and lovey dovey to be true. However, I think there is a lot to expect out of this... "horror raprock" band. Isn't it so nice that this band REALLY does fit that meaningwell too successfully and still be romantic and so forth, eerie in all musick expression. THEN, we can see that there is a new idealism about the real genre, and all to say is ist: Gothic Rap Romantica. Enough said,
