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

    This song tells me to watch out the diverse temptations that i have the potential to fall for. It's all part of being human, but it can be prevented if you watch what you're doing. The fallen angel they speak of to me is satan. Don't breathe in his breath, for he is a fallen angel and will pull you down into bondage if you let him.

    The icy fingers are satan's grip and the rotten apple is "forbidden fruit" temptation from satan like when adam and eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. This is about the struggle of sin in everyday life.
