Attach yourself to me
Together we can breathe
I donít want to think about what has come to pass
I donít want to think about what will come of us
I just want to live this moment knowing what I am

Living vicariously through you
We were meant to be (x2)
But not like this

I feed upon your words and blood when youíre gone
I sneak along the floor to see you trying to sanctify
And dispel the realities
Of your own mortality
Such a shame we canít accept whatís always coming
But I have seen your death my dear
And I cannot believe the shameless things weíve done
To bring us both this far.

The sun leeches into place
(Leeches) The calcium from your bones and you collapse
Displaced, and fierce, the loneliness of knowing that
Whatever could have been
Could always change
Thereís a loneliness to knowing that.

And someday I may resuscitate you
And truly then Iíd need to know if I was worthy
To lie beside you, die inside you here.


Fake, or not?

This is my very incomplete (and probably otherwise very incorrect) interpretation after a few listens. Please correct/clarify anything you hear.

EDIT: Changed some lines after reading Navid's, several of his sound more correct.

I own the TV
'Cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be like
And by the husband
Drowned by the ocean
Shot by his own son
He used a poison (?)

And in his dream
He kissed him goodbye
It's my kind of story
It's no fun until someone dies

Don't look me at like
I am a monster
Frown out your one face
But with the other
Stare like a junkie
Into the TV
Stare like a zombie

While the mother holds her child
Watches him die
Hands to the sky crying,
"Why, oh why?"

Cause I need to watch things die... from a distance
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
You all needn't choose your own lie

Why can't we just admit?
Why can't we just admit?
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing
(??) grave (??)
The right of the story so
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing

I need to watch things die... from a good safe distance
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same, so...

Why can't we just admit?

(??) rain fell down
(??) grave and drown

Part vampire
Part warrior
Carnivore and warrior
Still have the transmitter(??)
Sink to the death rattle

La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie (x4)

(???)
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men
But pull your head on out
Your head believes in (??)
Shouldn't have to say it all again

The universe is hostile, so impersonal
Devour to survive... so it is, so it's always been

We all feed on tragedy
It's like blood to a vampire

Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
(??) you and I

Yes, it seems the song has leaked. As with most of you here, I have given it a few listens. To those who are against listening to it before its air-date in a few days - well, I understand where you may be coming from - but I see no problem with what I have done. I would be hearing it in a few days regardless and this wont affect my decision to purchase the album.

Anyway, I haven't deciphered most of the lyrics yet - but I thought that if we gave it a collaborative effort as a collective, we might figure it out pretty fast. So, thus far - this is what I have:

Eye on the T.V.
Coz' tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor
It happens to be
Like ['bout?] a husband
Drowned by the ocean/
Shot by his own son
He [used a?] poison [probably inaccurate, I know]

[Lines missing]
Its my kind of story
Its no fun till someone dies.

Don't look at me like
I am a monster
Frown out your one face
But with the other
Stare like a junkie
Into the T.V.
Stare like a zombie
Whi-le the mother
Who holds her child
Watches him die
Hands to the sky crying
Why, oh why.

Coz' I need to watch things die
from a distance
Vicariously I
live while the whole world dies
[lines missing]

Why can't we just admit it (x2)

[lines missing]

I need to watch things die
from a good safe distance
Vicariously I
live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same so why
Why can't we just admit it.

sounds good, too busy listening to get the other words

This is what I think it says::


I own the TV
'Cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be like
And by the husband
Drowned by the ocean
Shot by his own son
She used the boys

And in his dream
He kissed him goodbye
Mishappening(?) story
It's all fun until someone dies

Don't look me at like
I am a monster
Thrown out your one face
But with the other
Stare like a junkie
Into the TV
Stare like a zombie

While the mother holds her child
Watches him die
Pleads to the sky crying,
"Why, oh why?"

Cause I need to watch things die... from a distance
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
You all needn't choose your own lie

Why can't we just end it?
Why can't we just end it?
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing
neither are brave nor bold
The right of the story so
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing

I need to watch things die... from a good safe distance
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same, so...

Why can't we just end it?

blood like rain fall down
drownin the grave and ground

Part vampire
Part warrior
Carnivore and warrior
Still have the transmittous
Sink to the death rattle

La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie (x4)

gradually increase
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men
But pull your head on out
Your head believes so give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again

The universe is hostile, so impersonal
Devour to survive... so it is, so it's always been

We all feed on tragedy
It's like blood to a vampire

Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
much better you and I

Here's the above.. just fixed...

I own the TV
'Cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be like
And by the husband
Drowned by the ocean
Shot by his own son
She used the boys

And in his dream
He kissed him goodbye
That's my kind of story
It's never fun until someone dies

Don't look me at like
I am a monster
Thrown out your one face
But with the other
Stare like a junkie
Into the TV
Stare like a zombie

While the mother holds her child
Watches him die
Pleads to the sky crying,
"Why, oh why?"

Cause I need to watch things die... from a distance
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
You all needn't choose your own lie

Why can't we just admit it?
Why can't we just admit?


...


that's part of it fixed

Thanks for the swift replies. And yes, I am pretty sure it is "thrills".

Perhaps a merger of threads is in order?

I think that my first guess may fill in some blanks:

Eye on the TV
ĎCause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor
It happens to be
Like
'Killed by the husband'
'Drowned by the ocean'
'Shot by his own son'
'She used a poison in his tea (sounds lame, probably wrong)
And kissed him goodbye'
(?)
Itís no fun Ďtil someone dies

Or perhaps "You all needn't choose your own lie"?

Not my own find. I read it here, posted by some other forumite.

I really like the "headlines" idea... sounds very plausible, actually. Here's my best stab at it (posted in the other thread too, but oh well).

I own the TV
'Cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be... like
"Killed by the husband"
"Drowned by the ocean"
"Shot by his own son"
"She used the poison"

And in his dream
He kissed him goodbye
It's my kind of story
It's no fun until someone dies

Don't look me at like
I am a monster
Frown out your one face
But with the other
Stare like a junkie
Into the TV
Stare like a zombie

While the mother holds her child
Watches him die
Hands to the sky crying,
"Why, oh why?"

Cause I need to watch things die... from a distance
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
You all needn't choose your own lie

Why can't we just admit?
Why can't we just admit?
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing
(??) grave (??)
The right of the story so
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing

I need to watch things die... from a good safe distance
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same, so...

Why can't we just end it?

Blood like rain falling down
(??) grave and (??)

Part vampire
Part warrior
Carnivore and warrior
Still have the transmitter
Sink to the death rattle

La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie (x4)

Credulous at best
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men
But pull your head on out
Your head, please, and give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again

The universe is hostile, so impersonal
Devour to survive... so it is, so it's always been

We all feed on tragedy
It's like blood to a vampire

Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
Much better you than I

Eye on the TV
Cuz tradgety thrills me
Whatever flavor

Like
"Killed by the husband"
"Drowned by the ocean"
"Shot by his own son"
"She used to poison his tea"

Kiss them goodbye
Cuz I've got story
"It's no fun until someones dies"


Don't look at me like
I am a monster
Throw out your one face
Out with the other
Stare like a junky
into the TV
Stare like a zombie
While a mother
Holds her child
who watches them die
Hands to the sky, crying
"Oh why, oh why"

Cuz I need to watch things die, from a distance
Vicariously, I watch as the whole world dies
You all needed to ???

Why can't we just end it?
We wont give pause until the blood is flowing
Into the graves
??
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing

I need to watch things die, from a good, safe distance

Angels in the hearts of men
Pull your heart

Hence my lack of confidence, and my disclaimer. It definitely ends with an open ended long E sound. Similar to tea.
