one of my favorite songs of the new album is Half-Truism... when i here the lyrics i picture war and people dying for no reason, it may sound weird but that's what i think of...

what do you guys think?

One is for envy
And one just for spite
The cuts in my heart
They show in your eyes
Donít make it better
The twisting knife
Turns all by itself
Move on to someone else

This part makes me think of betrayal and being "stabbed in the back"

Your self-liberation
Will leave this behind
Beyond slings and arrows
That rain on our minds
Youíll make it better
Shake it off
It never mattered anyway

Maybe this is about not caring hat they have hurt the other, emotionally and/or physically.

If we donít make it alive
Well itís a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong
Only lasts for so long

And itís ashes to ashes again
Should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong
Only lasts for so long

But this part makes me think of death and how fragile life is. I don't see where it relates to the first two verses.


The banner youíre waving
Is burning and red
Itís blocking the sunlight
That shines overhead
You against the world
Diamonds and pearls
Voices inside you churn
Watch the city burn

Your own liberation
Will leave them behind
All the slings and arrows
That rain on your mind
Donít make it better
Break it cause
It never mattered anyway

Again makes me think of betrayal and apathy...

I don't know the true meaning.

Well, based on the lyrics and the album art, i'd say its some sort of battle anthem against society/the current politcal climate.
