Play Me Backwards Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
You don't have to play me backwards
To get the meaning of my verse
You don't have to die and go to Hell
To feel the Devil's curse
Verse 2
Well, I thought my life was a photograph
On the family Christmas card
Kids all dressed in buttons and bows
And lined up in the yard
Verse 3
Were the golden days of childhood
So lyrical and warm
Or did the picture start to fade
On the day that I was born
Verse 4
I've seen them light the candles
I've heard them bang the drum
And I've cried Mama, I'm cold as ice
And I got no place to run
Verse 5
Let the night begin, there's a pop of skin
And the sudden rush of scarlet
There's a little boy riding on a goat's head
And a little girl playing the harlot
Verse 6
There's a sacrifice in an empty church
Of sweet lil' baby Rose
And a man in a mask from Mexico
Is peeling off my clothes
Verse 7
I've seen them light the candles
I've heard them bang the drum
And I've cried Mama, I'm cold as ice
And I got no place to run
Verse 8
So, I'm paying for protection
Smoking out the truth
Chasing recollections
Nailing down the proof
Verse 9
You don't have to play me backwards
To get the meaning of my verse
You don't have to die and go to Hell
To feel the Devil's curse
Verse 10
I'll stand before your altar
And tell everything I know
I've come to claim my childhood
At the chapel of baby Rose
Verse 11
I've seen them light the candles
I've heard them bang the drum
I've seen them light the candles
I've heard them bang the drum
