Haste The Day – An Adult Tree lyrics

So cold, your icy fingers
Around my neck
You offer this rotten apple
Begging me to taste and see
I take just one bite

I know you're coming like a bad dream
When the demons fall to place
Perverting all the answers
Corrupting what's inside you
Believing everything
Cut deeper to the core

But we know what's inside
(We know what's inside (x9))

Go to bed young dreamer
A prophet you'll arise
To call us out
Go to bed young dreamer
You tell of our decline
But you follow us down

The breath of the fallen angel
Brings death if you breathe it in (breathe it in, breathe it in)
Although you know what dwells inside
The breath of the fallen angel
Brings death if you breathe it in

To bite down, to chew, and to swallow (to swallow)
To muscle it down to dissolve (dissolve)
Bed ridden shivering fever (fever)
Follow it down (x2)

Your icy fingers around my neck
Offering destruction
And begging me to taste and see
So I take just one bite
It's the poison in your veins
It's the shiver down your spine
Cut deeper to the core
But we know what's inside

To bite down, to chew, and to swallow
To muscle it down to dissolve
Bed ridden shivering fever
Follow it down (x2)

And we know you'll bite down
And you'll follow us all the way down (x2)

(We know what's inside(x9))

Go to bed young dreamer
A prophet you'll arise
To call us out
Go to bed young dreamer
You tell of our decline
But you follow us down

    To me, it seems like its an allusion to the serpent offering Eve a taste of the "apple", the fruit of the eternal tree of knowledge in the Garden of Eden. She knew what it would do to her, but that knowledge begged her to take "just one bite", So I think that the song represents the lure of Sin and its obvious "offering of destruction", but we "take just one bite' because it sounds too good, even though we know it's going to 'corrupt what's inside."
    I could be wrong, but like I said, that's just what it speaks to me, since I'm Christian. :)
