InnerPartySystem – This Town, Your Grave lyrics

Face down in a population that God has left behind,
In these barren streets the neon lights will be your guide.
All their limbs are stretched holidng tight what could have been,
No-one here is innocent because we can't forgive.
God made this place a haven for the motionless and weak,
A paradise of endless hope no progress to be seen.
The houses are abandoned by those who could escape.
While we will be the future and you,
You will never change.

Washing your hands in blood won't take away the stain.
Since there's no room in heaven, He made this town,
This town, your grave.

The cross they bear,
A burden that they just can't stand.
They're holding on to nothing, time is slipping through their hands.
So easily they point the finger the first to pass the blame.
While we will be the future and you,
YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE.

YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE.

Washing your hands in blood won't take away the stain.
Since there's no room in heaven, he made this town,
This town, your grave.

(Stop.. This town is your grave)

(YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE.)

Washing your hands in blood won't take away the stain.
Since there's no room in heaven, he made this town,
This town, your grave.

    This probably is talking about people's guilt over something that they have done. 'Washing your hands in blood won't take away the stain' probably refers to doing something wrong in place of something wrong, even though it won't make a difference. But it could also talk about people with too much hope and they don't do anything to advance themselves or help others since wall they are doing is waiting for something to happen for them. 'The cross they bear a burden that they just can't stand' this probably is saying that they have done something wrong and that they don't want to take responsibility for it. Though I could be looking to deep into this song, or might not even be getting it right, I'm half asleep. I think it's about guilt over something you have done, like real bad.
