Sigillum Diaboli
I can't see as I'm facing your pitiful lies
Don't have the strength to carry your heavy load of life
I'm your Christ and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do

Oh
I can't see through your eyes, bring your tears on me
I will lift the burden from your shoulders just to have killing
I'm your Christ and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do

Oh as well as I do
Oh as well as I do
Just as well as I do
Oh as well as I do
Oh as well as I do

So I'm your Christ to and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do
So I'm your Christ and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do

Oh, so you've come from above
And you say you want it all
And I cut myself for your love
I'm killing myself for you, yes you

I can't see as I'm facing your pityful lies
Don't have the strength to carry your heavy load of life
I'm your Christ and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do
I'm your Christ and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do

Yes you do
Yes you do, my Darling
Yes you do, oh
Yes you do, oh my Love
So

    Should also read insTead of Oh," so you've come from above and you say you want to and I kill myself for your love I'm killing myself for you, yes you "

    Oh so you've come for more, And you say you want it all, And i cut myself for your love, I'm killing myself cause you yes you want more.

    actually youre both wrong, there is two versions of this song, Sigillum Diaboli,and stigmata diaboli, in th e song sigillum diaboli the above lyrics are correct and in stigmata diaboli, the lyrisc you wrote are correct,

    This world's not for us and you know it as well as i do ... Oh so you've come for more, And you say you want it all, And i cut myself for your love, I'm killing myself cause you yes you want more. thats the stigmata diaboli version

    in the U.S. their albums are released under the name HER.

    also I think I have some other corrections to the lyrics... these also seem to make more sense.

    "I can see you're sad facing your pitiful lies. You don't have the strength to carry your heavy load of life." Also sometimes it sounds like "your sad face and your pitiful eyes, don't have the strength to carry your heavy load of lies."

    "I will lift the burden from your shoulders, you just have to believe." Makes a whole hell of a lot more sense than "I will leave the body for your shoulder you just have to killing" especially in context with the Christ theme.

    After repeatedly listening to both versions of the song (sigillum/stigmata), I think he actually says "this world's not for us" in the chorus... although "this world's built for us" would make more sense considering the religious angle.

    ya...this song is super hard to figure out the lyrics, and it does sound like "im your christ and i want you" but please trust me... it is... "im your christ to die on you, just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do"

    that is really it, it was on heartagram.com no matter how it sounds.

    other than that part it is pretty accurate.

    and HIM meant nothing by this song to be satanic or anything, they just thought it was fun to play, no meaning like "GAH!! WORSHIP SATAN!" or anything like that. but i have heard that it is about someone being possed by the devil.

    Yeah hard lyrics, great song. I think it's about satan trying to tempt people into worshiping him, hence "I'm your Christ and I want you". I dunno, that's just what I think of when I listen to it.

    the lyrics from the booklet read as:

    I cant see as im facing your pitiful lies dont have the strength to carry our heavy load of life Oh so youve come from above to say you want to and i kill myself for your love im killing myself for you im your christ to die on you i just woke up for hers and you know it as well as i do

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
