Ten Tonne Skeleton Lyrics

She took my heart, left me for dead
And drank my blood, told me she said
Our secrets worth its weight in gold
That fire we had, those two we cold

Cut loose like an animal
Fired out like a cannon ball
But I waited too long
Yeah, I waited too long
Got me high from a holy vein
Crashed down in a hurricane
Love has been here and gone
Love has been here and gone

Where did you go?
Where did you run?
I can't erase what you've done
Let's burn the past, forget the truth
I'm still more than him, I'm still loving you Cut loose like an animal
Fired out like a cannon ball
But I waited too long
Yeah, I waited too long
Got me high from a holy vein
Crashed down in a hurricane
Love has been here and gone
Love has been here and gone

Cut loose like an animal
Fired out like a cannon ball
But I waited too long
Yeah, I waited too long
Got me high from a holy vein
Crashed down in a hurricane
Love has been here and gone
Love has been here and gone

But I waited too long
For you only
Love has been here and gone
To die slowly
Going under again
So don't follow me

Thoughts & Meanings

This seems to tell a tale of how the niggers tries to start an uprising against the white race but failed due to their uneducated swine race

This song seems to me to be inspired by the book, The Queen of The Damned by Anne Rice. "She drank my blood" sounds like when Lestat receives the singular honor of the Queen, the first vampire, Akasha, waking up and drinking from him when she usually just sat there like a statue and let others drink from her or destroyed them if she disapproved. "Got high from a holy vein." Sounds like when Lestat drinks from the statue-like queen and described the feeling of it as one might describe a drug experience. "Holy" vein would describe the worshipful reverence with which Marius keeps the queen and her consort, Enkil, as well as Akasha waking in the 80s and trying to become a goddess to humans. Then, there are references to the two cold statues Akasha and Enkil, to Akasha waking and running off, to Akasha's long romance with Marius and her leaving him for dead, to the "Secret" of Akasha's existence which he guarded with his vampire life, and Maybe even to the title Blood and Gold, the story of Marius and his 2,000 year subtle and strange relationship with Akasha.
