    Default The Noose - the meaning (by NIG)

    Tops to wilsonkck for the idea of doing this!

That could make a good thread, a song analysis thread with a new song every week!
    I totally agree with him there - it seems about soldiers' experiences in war (similar to out on patrol and tehran?) maybe even the 'last' war (i.e. the war which will inevitable follow a nuke being dropped)

    So basically the evidence:

    'We all end up forsaken' - they're helpless and gonna die
    'Choosing our own way' - they make their own decisions about life and death; basically a kill or be killed idea?
    'the future now incinerates' - there is only the present; these 'soldiers' have no future because they could be killed any second.
    'best of our intentions comes crashing down in flames' - although they try, they try in vain. like they tried to save someone and failed?
    'it's shallow living' they have no purpose in life now.

    chorus is pretty self-explanatory!

    'the tracers...are burning in the dust' - tracers are projectiles which can be observed in flight and are used in war.
    'body's getting numb' - happens to soldiers
    'now i lay you down' a comrade is dead
    'put the coins in your eyes'(my fav. offspring line!) - the Greeks used to do this to dead people so they'd have money to pay Charon(boatman on the river Styx) with.

    'no more' 'nothing' this war has destroyed everything.

    Ok, yeah i think this song is plainly obvious what it's about but still that's just my thoughts (and Wilsonkck's too!). Comments?

    I should write these for dexter!

    If you don't agree just put up your interpretation

    I agree with Jenny. It all fits in.
    Bravo, Jen. Keep up the good work
    You don't have bad luck. The reason bad things happen to you is because you're a dumbass.

    DVD with Splinter? Do you mean putting it in the PC or that you got an actual DVD with it?
