Leeches Lyrics - In Flames

Review The Song (4)



Leeches
We're like leeches
In ignorance we trust

If you say this way I will take that way
Fuel for the fire on which I thrive

Spit me out
I'm glad I don't belong
Save me the speech
You'll be forgotten and gone

It burns
It rips it hurts

Leeches
They preach to us
Words of wisdom from blocked minds

Spit me out
sponsored links
I'm glad I don't belong
Save me the speech
You'll be forgotten and gone

It burns
It rips it hurts
They make you believe your turn
The chance of a lifetime
How does it feel to be alive?

A tear for the poet
That can't be heard
Praise the artist that steals

Spit me out
I'm glad I don't belong
Save me the speech
You'll be forgotten and gone

It burns
It rips it hurts
They make you believe your turn (It rips it hurts)
The chance of a lifetime
How does it feel to be alive?

The chance of a lifetime, how does it feel to be alive?

My take on leeches lyrics | Reviewer: Max | 8/2/14

Of course In Flames lyrics can by interpreted in many diffrent ways but this is the way I like to interprete them.

"Leeches
We're like leeches
In ignorance we trust"
- *We're like leeches* refers to humanity only leeching from mother earth and not giving back. This is a pagan interpretation but IF lyrics can in many cases be interpreted pagan.
- *in ignorance we trust* We idolise and almost worship people who do not really care about this world like pop-musicians, politicians and religious leaders. Blind leading the blind.

"If you say this way I will take that way
Fuel for the fire on which I thrive"
- *If you say this way I will take that way* stands for the person realising the statement made in the previous couplet that will ultimately reject the current pop-culture and be very diffrent from so called leeches.
- *Fuel for the fire on which I thrive* refers to the growing confidence in a person that rejects the leeches by seeing how little they know and how close-minded they are.

"Spit me out
I'm glad I don't belong
Save me the speech
You'll be forgotten and gone"
- *Spit me out, I'm glad I don't belong* The person who rejects the leeches will be happy with his 'lonely' place in society.
- *Save me the speech* The person who rejects the leeches does not care about leeches looking down on him because he knows more about the actual world than the leech.
- *You'll be forgotten and gone* Very powerful one... If humanity continues as it is, it will take down the world and the people on it. On the other hand: if humanity realises it is going down the drain they will assign the leech as the cause of this.

"Leeches
They preach to us
Words of wisdom from blocked minds"
- *Words of wisdom from blocked minds* refers to muslims, jews and christians thinking that they figured it all out while in fact they are the root to all problems in this world.

"It burns
It rips it hurts
They make you believe your turn
The chance of a lifetime
How does it feel to be alive?"
- *It burns it rips it hurts* it is painful for the person who rejects the leeches to see the world going down the drain.
- *How does it feel to be alive?* Refers to the leeches thinking they know what life is about and them looking down on the persons who reject them and not understanding why they don't want to 'be alive'.

"A tear for the poet
That can't be heard
Praise the artist that steals"
- I never understood this to be honest....

Quite a long interpretation, replies with thought would be nice :-)

Just awesome | Reviewer: Stevo1162 | 7/4/08

what can i say? this is just a completly awesome song. i have to say Come Clarity is their best album in my opinion, it's got tones of meaningful songs like this one that are just fucking awesome.
