A strange kind of love
A strange kind of feeling
Swims through your eyes
And like the doors
To a wide vast dominion
They open to your prise
This is no terror ground
Or place for the rage
No broken hearts
White wash lies
Just a taste for the truth
Perfect taste choice and meaning
A look into your eyes
Blind to the gemstone alone
A smile from a frown circles round
Should he stay or should he go
Let him shout a rage so strong
A rage that knows no right or wrong
And take a little piece of you
There is no middle ground
Or that's how it seems
For us to walk or to take
Instead we tumble down
Either side left or right
To love or to hate

    General CommentI think bambino pretty much got it right.

    The way I interpret it, a woman who is married or engaged has fallen in love with another man. The love they share is pure, but that's also the problem. This man is "blind to the gemstone" and "alone". His love for this woman transcends the very grim reality... "a smile from a frown circles 'round"... that ultimately they cannot be together. If he is unable to "walk", she must take it upon herself to end it... "let him shout a rage so strong, a rage that knows no right or wrong". This "rage" "knows no right or wrong" because it is wholly a product of love that has been denied by circumstances beyond one's control or understanding. "There is no middle ground" is pretty self explanatory. "Or that's how it seems" would indicates to me that neither are sure of what to make of this love, hence why it is "strange". "For us to walk, or to take (from each other)" is the choice both are faced with. They "tumble down" is a result of their indecision. "To love or to hate" is the path they will choose.

    Beautiful song, really.
