The young stale memories of, play the role to your part.
Librarian find me the pole, the one that kicks your head in.
To my own time, roll your own innocence by.
Grab on to my sleeve... The one that grabs at your ankle!

Debate to understand that we all have a flaw,
Then fail to represent your life as you know it.
God grant you one wish: to turn back the time.
Correct and create, making sense of...

Me and my star, Matthew goodnight!
You know, by law, when you'll be forgiven!
Maria my star, Matthew goodnight!
You know, by lord, you'll be forgiven!

So they pulled your confidence down with those verbal discrepancies.
Now and then you'll gain what they've lost through a challenge of unpronounced.
Pain is only a pulse if you just stop feeling it!
You might be able to use the very things that make us up...

Me and my star, Matthew goodnight!
You know, by law, when you'll be forgiven!
Maria my star, Matthew goodnight!
You know, my lord...

Wait now, here, when will you believe me?
I'm merely asking you to help me.
When did I say to murder?
Wait now, here, please hear me out.

Time consumer...
Time consuming...
Consume me...

Down and out now...

Me and my star, Matthew goodnight!
You know, by law, when you'll be forgiven!
Maria my star, Matthew goodnight!
You know, by lord, you'll be forgiven!

Na ha ha haa, ahh...
Na ha ha ha ha... You know...
Tonight, in the promise you write...

Na ha ha haa, ahh...
Na ha ha ha ha... You know...
Goodnight, in the promise you write...

    Lol no xd they have neither they are lead to belive that by the red army coheed and cambria arent even human they can't get illnesses theyre irobots like theyre brother jesse fro mthe team K. B. I and there children the oldest isn't theyre child its jesses and there fore she is also an irobot called the antidotewith the power to turn the crowing off insder her supposed brother claudio who is gods natural form the crowing and the twins mathew and maria who are dieng in this song have no true ability or power becuase they werent the first born child of coheed and thsoi story isn't about coheed telling cambria or killig nhsi children cambria already knew about it somehow and the song is about the time coheed had to watch his children dieing becuase of the methord fof death the red army gave him to kill with and him realising that he can't use thtas methord to kill his other children, that's why its called time consumer don't test my C&C knowledge xd.

    In the Coheed and Cambria series/ amory wars series there is an evil empire that is afraid that Coheed and Cambria (parents of the kilganon children) will destroy their power. So an assistant to the ruler finds and tells Coheed that him and his children have a disease called monstar, and if he doesn't kill his children the universe will end.
    So pretty much this is the story of him somewhat telling Cambria about it and haveing to kill his two baby twins Matthew and Maria. In the song everything evil monstar is the main subject, but I'll just say the other part about it. This is the song where its introduced to Coheed and he has to kill 2 out of the 4 children.
