Break up already wake up now
Walk away take it all back now
Don't be quick to lick the scab off
Your spitting in his face with the rest of them

Break up already wake up now
Walk away take it all back now
Don't be quick to lick the scab off
Your spitting in his face with the rest of them

Please give me something I'm so thirsty, I'm so thirsty
Oh please, let me warn them, Don't you come here, don't bring anyone here.

The chasm isn't fixed yet. Take this water
Drinking ever deeper... living water.

The chasm isn't fixed yet. Take this water
Drinking ever deeper... living water.

Please give me something I'm so thirsty
Oh, Please... let me warn them. Don't you come here, don't bring anyone here

Please give me something I'm so thirsty
Oh, Please... let me warn them. Don't you come here, don't bring anyone here

Please give me something I'm so thirsty
Oh, Please... let me warn them. Don't you come here, don't bring anyone here

Please...

    it seems like it would be about warning a friend not to give into something that's really wrong. like a bad relationship. do you hear that shriek she has near the end? that's a friend in deep frustration, watching her friend go into that temptation, yet again. It's like saying 'how could you? and yet i can relate. i just tears me up to see you in that again.' or it could be a song strictly about the emotions of lazarus & the rich man.

    also, i like how the melody is playful yet does not stray from the power of the distant metal influence, also suggesting, "how can you? and yet you do again." imagine lazarus in torment, and yet the rich are out there every day, day after day ...

    great song

    this is based on the parable of lazarus and the rich man--

    "don't be quick to lick the scab off"- dogs licked lazarus's sores

    "please give me something, i'm so thirsty"- when the rich man was in hades, he saw lazarus in heaven and begged him to give him something to drink.

    "oh please let me warn them. don't you come here, don't bring anyone here"- the rich man begged God to let him warm his brothers of their fate.
