Angels fall to the floor
Like they would if I was captain
"Silver children," She roared
"I'm not the son of God"
Somebody help me sing
Can anybody hear me?
Liars and lovers combine tonight
We're gonna make a scene

Somebody help me sing whoaaa oh oh
Somebody help me sing whoaaa oh oh

Help me be captain of
Our crippled disguises
I won't show what's underneath
It's time for surprises
I can't climb up your ladder
I can't ride your horse
I've swallowed half an hourglass
So now the landscape is swollen up

I gave birth to a fire
It's like it's features where burning
I'm in control, I am the son of God
Somebody help me sing
Can anybody hear me?
Line up your soldiers one final time
We're gonna have a ball

Somebody help me sing whoaaa oh oh
Somebody help me sing whoaaa oh oh

Help me be captain of
Our crippled disguises
I won't show what's underneath
It's time for surprises
I can't climb up your ladder
I can't ride your horse
I've swallowed half an hourglass
So now the landscape is swollen up

Let's throw death away
(Repeat)

    In my opinion, this sound is someone being confused as lucifer (lucifer fell from the heavens with a legion of angels). He roars 'silver children' because she is 'dazzled' by the radiance given by lucifer and his army of fallen angels. Either him or lucifer reply 'i am not the son of god'. It must be that he/lucifer looks so glorious that he is confused with a christ-like type. Liars and lovers combine tonight could refer to demons copulating. With themselves. It could be the angels and demons that stand on our shoulders. Or it could be something else. He accepts looking up to lucifer (the captain) and not being of the same 'stature'. He wants to pose as something else. He has swollen 'half hourglass' means that he has reached the zenith of his life. This could be the beginning of his decline so everything looks intimidating. Because of this he is determine to postpone death.
