I want to write your name into my flesh
I want to be in love with myself again
I want to bring it down
I want to bring it down
I believe that things are changing

Where is the gain in all the hell you bring
In the search for something new?
Because the birds won't sing when their cages stink
So think of something else to say
Because things are changing

I want to write your name into my flesh
I want to be in love with myself again
I want to bring it down
I want to bring it down
I believe that things are changing

Your hands, held tight around
The throat of what it is to live these days
And we choke on the pain feed into our heads
We're not gonna be here when you get back

I want to write your name into my flesh
I want to be in love with myself again
I want to bring it down
I want to bring it down
I believe that things are changing

For the best
And all the rest into the flood
All of me has to bleed
But part of me has got to be alive

    I think the song has Christian religious undertones about how people are not living by the rules set by God. "You hands are tied around of what it is to live these days" seems to mean that the writer is struggling between doing what he wants and fitting in with our deviant society and trying to live by biblical standards. The bad feelings brought on by going with the flow and knowing it isn't right. This is just what I take from the song and I'm not trying to push my beliefs on anybody.

    I personaly think that this song is talking about,
    A man who is personaly feeling down.
    He is talking about the world/life.
    How people are just ignoring the fact that
    In todays society everything is evolving.
    The latest stuff, tecnology and sutch.
    Its for the good but is also affecting us in
    a bad way in the end.(Thats just how i personaly
    interpret it.) ^_^
