Whatever happened to the integrity found within a family?
I return your glare
And my bones are chilled with some sort of
Sickening recipe of fear and anger.

Day by day, time after time again, time after time again
You distort chronology
You foster of terror.

Bury your diamonds, destroy your rubies.

We are searching for security in tragedy.
Take a look around and notice the black (tapestries) drowning (our walls of) simplicity.

We are the constant decay.
Each note will disintegrate.
Perched upon our towers, motionless and miserable.
Here's to a comfortable casket.
How deceiving is the cemetery of motivation.
How deceiving is the cemetery of motivation.
I wish to write
I wish to write
I wish to write a conclusion

    ok realy? does anyone read the bible?"Whatever happened to the integrity found within a family?" here he is talking about the morals and guideline of the christian nation that we ceased to follow."I return your glare
    And my bones are chilled with some sort of
    Sickening recipe of fear and anger." now he is tlking about the blinding stare of the temptations of the serpant aka satan he returns the glare. And my bones are chilled with some sort of
    Sickening recipe of fear and anger." As i walk through the valley of the shadow of death comes into play here. hes not backing down hes standing strong no matter how affraid he is no matter how angry he is he stand strong on Gods side. and throghout the song he is talking about what satan is doing to the world "you foster of terror" Satan is the author of terror Jesus gave us no fear satan puts fear into our minds. "we are the constant Decay" we are the reason our world is falling is where this comes in alot of people will say "why does God let things happen? why did God let terorist bomb the twin towers?" the truth is He didnt we as humanity did our morals have fallen away and thats where this part comes in "How decieving is the Cemetry of motivation" we can compare this with Genises the serpant tempted or "motivated" Eve to eat from the tree. also take it to comparrison of peer pressure to smoke a ciggerett. motivation but its ganna screw up your lungs sin is a decieving cemetry of motivation. "I wish to write a conclusion." he means he wishes he could change he world and bring them all to christ but know its just a mere wish. now i hope that shed some light on the song

    OK so the meaning I found behind every sentence in the song might be way different from what mike is trying to talk about. But i think it is worth sharing about, i guess :P

    "Whatever happened to the integrity found within a family?"
    OK so i think here mike is asking what is wrong with the adherence of people to stick to morals and ethics in a "family" or the class of human beings.

    "I return your glare
    And my bones are chilled with some sort of
    Sickening recipe of fear and anger."

    ok so i took 'you' as a criminal from the newspaper so this is what i think mike is talking about-) mike is not only frightened but also angry at the picture of the criminal staring at him..

    "Day by day, time after time again, time after time again
    You distort chronology
    You foster of terror."
    OK so here mike is talking to the same bad guy blaming him that he has been distorting or changing how things should normally go like for example i thought the person was a criminal and killed people so he changed the life of ppl who died by killing them.

    "Bury your diamonds, destroy your rubies."
    here mike might mean the fact how the bad guy i.e 'you' buried, destroyed his treasure or good qualities.

    "We are the constant decay.
    Each note will disintegrate."
    WE here might mean the whole human population i guess who are falling apart every time bad guys like him does bad stuffs and that is disintegrating WE.

    "Perched upon our towers, motionless and miserable."
    talking about how we r sitting and not being able to do anything about all the bad stuffs happening, motionless and feeling miserable about it.

    "How deceiving is the cemetery of motivation.
    I wish to write a conclusion"
    so yeah here WE are trying to get motivated from all the bad stuffs happening but we know it is just to deceive us, just so that we don't feel bad anymore.

    i think this song is about how our family system is crumbling, getting worse.. and sometimes we can do nothing about it, or we can, but choose not to.

    its really kinda depressing
