The Mars Volta – Asilos Magdalena lyrics

Oh lord
Oh lord, You've made it....

You wanna drag your vessel
You wanna hush your voices

You better drag your... you better hush your...

I'll remember that I'll need to carry on
I'll pretend you're not around, I'll forget you
Just like everyone else, I'll forget you
Is there anybody around, I'll forget you
Just like anyone
Just because, just because, just because
Do you come here ohhh
Shiver around, shiver around

Oh Lord, oh lord, you've made it....

You wanna drag your vessel
You wanna hush your voices

...hush your mouth

    Morning star is another word for the devil and so is Samuel. He's not looking to God when he references "la estrella de la manana." This song is either about Mary Magdalen being angry about Jesus dying and leaving her so she basically curses God. Or this song could be about a person who has had a bad life and feels as if God has turned against him. Hence the reason he says "Cargo una navaja Dios mio parati. Cuantas veces me mordiste, and cuantas veces yo me fui." He is saying how many times God has cursed him and how many times he has left the light of God and his faith behind.

    This group songs are really complicated to understand, in order to do so you have to be real open minded about what posibilities.
    My first impression of this song is that he believed in God but something really bad happened in his life that now he does not believe in what God has to offer if not he rather just die and go to hell.
    Now he just lives his life as it pleases the devil but for some reason still searches God in the morning star hoping that he might still go to heaven.
