El Mark (The Mark) By GlassJaw

So, with no explanation from Daryl on this song, I am going to at least add what I took away from it…

It seems a lot of the references in here are aimed at governments and their abilities to lie through their fucking teeth while countless others are victims of practically sanctioned massacres.

It paints an image in my head of the many wars in the middle east, and the civil wars of South America and Africa; where outside influences tend to set-off firestorms (both literally and figuratively) within nations we are claiming to “help”. Just utter chaos with world leaders trying to soften the media blow by making it seem as if it was out of their control.

I could be way off base, and this could just be another hate song towards another hexed lover.

El Mark By GlassJaw

Who the fuck wants to live forever?
Remorse!!!
When you stab me in the back
With your dream.

To keep this body sober
I show my life for all to see..
Do you see me?
Do you see me?!

In a battle the size of my thumb
Always better a fashion show
Than no show at all.

Driving me crazy,
You’re driving me, you’re driving me
You’re driving me crazy,
You’re driving me insane

Be you!
Would it be you?!

And when the runway rovers
Grease back their manes
For our own sake
Do you see me?
Do you see me?

In a battle the size of my thumb
Always better a fashion show
Than no show at all.

Driving me crazy,
You’re driving me, you’re driving me
You’re driving me crazy.
You’re driving me until…

Blue as I write this
You’re marked.
Blue as I write this
Once more

Be you!
Would it be you?!
Be you!
Would it be you?!

Napalm the children
Napalm the children
You’ve got to learn
You’ve got to learn
You won’t believe what you’re not told
You’ve got to feel, what you steal.

Driving me crazy
You’re driving me, you’re driving me
You’re driving me crazy
You driving me into…

Blue as I write this…
For you, Mark.
Blue as I write this
Once more.

Be you!!!
Would it be you?!?!?!
Be you!!!
Would it be you?!?!?!
