Cursed earth, cursed earth, cursed earth, cursed earth.

I will never feed off the evergreen luster of your heart all because we all live in the valley of the walls when we speak we can peak from the windows of their mouths to see the land the women chant as they fly up to the sun.

You never think you know why,
Know, you never think you know why,
Know, you never think you know why,
Know, ever think you know why,
Know.

Books all say different things while people flap their yellow wings trying to soar by being a whore of life and almost everything the sheep that ran off from the herd may be dead but now's a bird able to fly able to die able to break your cursed earth
(fuck your mother's earth)

You never think you know why,
Know, you never think you know why,
Know, you never think you know why,
Know, ever think you know why,
Know.

On the other side, on the other side, the other side,
Do you ever try to fly, do you ever try to fly?
Have you ever wanted to die, you ever want to die?

Don't ever try to fly, don't ever try to fly,
Don't ever try to fly, unless you leave your body on the other side,
Never try to die, you ever try to die.

Know, you never think you know why,
Know, you never think you know why,
Know, you never think you know why,
Know, ever think you know why,

    I think this song is about the amount of horrible things people do, how disturbing those things are & how those people that do those things will never know why their lives are so horrible & the actual meaning of life. At the end when serj is saying, "have you ever wanted to die, have you ever tried to fly... " he means that people do all the rediculous this to kill them-selves, and sometimes how 'mess up' they are when the try to kill them-selves... So in that part i think he's saying people are trying to kill them-selves by flying, or they don't even know sometimes that they, are not flying... This song could also be about prostitutes. ~systemofapegasister (savannah)
