"Something holds me down and makes me act a way i can't explain
Even now I can feel it coming over me, choking me
As I’m falling behind
You can say you know me
But you have no clue what my dreams could show you"
don't ask why i like them...i just do :)
This line has got me thinkin' too, I should probably listen to Grim Goodbye more to know what it means.
Anyways my favorite is from Justify:
"Justify! Your secrecies that surmise your cries.
I see the way you look around the bend,
is it going to end, when?"
The song itself is pretty deep. In my opinion, It talks about the downfall of societies, how it all changed from the simple days into today which is full of hate and discrimation. Corrupt politics causing wars and religious fanaticism causing hate. A never ending cycle of bloodshed and tears.
here it is, hope this helps.... hey i love this song.... it's my fave
from: rebryant66 in youtube:
`the grim goodbye is a song about someone who has an addiction, like alcohol ...and they feel like they are betraying their religion every time they drink alcohol....if u read the lyrics it makes sense...^^ and yeah there is a bible verse in the background...i posted it in another thread called ''i have a question' or something like that
The original version of Grim Goodbye
It had this bible verse in the background.
"Sorrow is better than laughter,
for by a sad countenance the heart is made better.
The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning.
But the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.
It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise than for a man to hear the song of fools. For like the crackling of thorns under a pot, so is the laughter of the fool. This also is vanity. Surely oppresion destroys a wise man's reason. And a bribe debases the heart.
The end of a thing is better then its beginning. The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, for anger rests in the bosom of fools."
