So hey we should decode Shinigami, considering that it's released. (Kinda.) O0

Verse 1:
There's nothing in this place
That excites me anymore
I long only for nightmares
For apocalypse and war

Bridge:
I'm bored out of my skull
Let's play a different game
Let's pay a visit down below
And cast the world in flames

There is beauty in fire
When all lights are out
And then there's truth in those things
We've learned to live without

Chorus:
The devil in the doorway
Is defined within our blood
But we can always play and make believe

Verse 2:
A wondrous design
A bored and brutal mind
So ready to inflict his sense of justice on mankind
A fly upon the wall
I watch as he evolves
And follow as the world around him steadily dissolves

Bridge:
I'm bored out of my skull
Let's play a different game
Let's pay a visit down below
And cast the world in flames

There is beauty in fire
When all lights are out
And then there's truth in those things
We've learned to live without

Chorus:
The devil in the doorway
Is the fire within our blood
But we can always play and make believe

Verse 3:
And in the world beyond this day
There will be faith no more
The certainty of your new God
Is all you need to know

It's not the peace you had in mind
The one you waited for
There is no land beyond this wall
There is no place to go
Nowhere outside the World of Light

Bridge:
I'm bored out of my skull
Let's play a different game
Let's pay a visit down below
And cast the world in flames

There is beauty in fire
When all lights are out
And then there's truth in those things
We've learned to live without

Chorus:
The devil in the doorway
Is the fire within our blood
But we can always play and make believe

There is beauty in fire
When all lights are out
And then there's truth in those things
We've learned to live without

The devil in the doorway
Is the fire within our blood
But we can always play and make believe

Deleted mine for the sake of readability. This one looks better now :)

Some remarks:
- Are you sure about "play a different game" instead of "gig"? Sounds like "gig" to me.
- "I'm bored out of my mind" doesn't seem correct to me, sounds like "ego line" or something o_O
- "fly upon the wall"? :)
- "Certainty of your own god" maybe? "of all you've got"?
We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica
:o brown chicken brown cow :o

"Certainty of your own god" maybe?" That's what it sounds like, but not what I hear. If that makes sense. I'm not saying everything I *heard* is right, but it's what I heard =P Correct me at will.

"play a different game" You did originally write the last verse as "and in the world beyond this game" so, yeah = P Edit: Balls, just realized I messed a line up. Fixing.

 "fly upon the wall"? :) Not sure, but it does fit with watching this individual.

Way I see it, this song is about the powers above growing bored and deciding to wreak some havoc on the world (and watch what happens) for fun.

Which would make total sense as that exactly what the anime Death Note is about. ;) (which is the source of the song name)

Yeah... there I heard "game" :) now that I listen to it again, it could as well be "pain", which would probably be more appropriate...

Hmm, Muckwuddley's comment regarding the likely accuracy of my interpretation of the song's base meaning makes "play a different game" make sense.

"I'm bored out of my skull, let's play a different game, let's pay a visit down below and cast the world in flames."

I am, however, less sure about:
the devil in the doorway
is the fly within the pool

Especially as it applies to the song's apparent meaning. It sounds like it's talking about an evil thing disguised as a good one, or the exact opposite. So "the fly within the pool" doesn't really fit that. Except that it would suggest that the evil thing is easily lost in the "pool" of people on the world.

I'm fairly sure it's "apocalypse and war" :P

Edit: "the certainty of your own god" perhaps? (it may even be "new god")

There's a few other spots I question. Fly in the pool doesn't sound right to me. Neither does "I'm bored out of my mind" before te so ready to inflict part. Seems like that line would be talking about someone else (Light if you take it literal).

Finally, I think in that same spot it's "a fly upon the wall"


Could be way wrong on all of that, just my immediate thoughts hehe ;)

I think it sounds like

"The devil in the doorway
 is defined within our (idk)"

... or not. Damn compression. Can't wait to get my CD.

That sounds like you're onto something. Is defined within our blood maybe?

Also edited my above post quite a bit with a few other thoughts.

Certain pirate vessels will not be docking with my main gaming PC, but let me transfer the song from my netbook and I'll take a listen with the better audio card on this box.

Blood sounds about right, yeah. So:

"the devil in the doorway
is defined within our blood
but we can always play in make believe"

Also, I think

"and theres truth in the things
 we've learned to live without" // edited, good catch __sfdg!

"a fly upon the wall"

and

"the certainty of your new god"

we burn to live without
--> "we've learned to live without"

I'm fairly sure it's "apocalypse and war" :P

I concur.

Not sure about anything else yet...

Edited and prettified the whole thing. Picked out some new stuff with the help of better audio equipment = P

I'm not 100% on:
I'm bored if you don't mind
- I definitely hear "I'm ____ you don't mind".
Is the fire within our blood
-Again, I hear "Is the fire within our" definitely.
There is no land beyond this wall
-Wall also sounds like Law. It may be reference specific. In that case, I cede, because I have not seen Death Note. Although after this I may have to.
