They are the ghosts of innocents
That have awoken from my dreams
Welcome to your nightmare
Say good-bye to every thing
All your past obscenities
They have determined where I stand
Echoing Cries, in the time that it began

Hear me now
Feel my blade
There is no more time for apologizes
Never let emotions
Take hold of me
Are you ready to begin your trip to the other side?
Death is an old friend of mine

You can't escape your judgment
I hear them calling out your name
Do not beg for mercy now
You never showed any to them
Embrace your finally punishment
There's not a soul to hear you scream
I have to thank you for letting out the animal in me


Hear me now
Feel my blade
There is no more time for apologizes
Never let emotions
Take hold of me
Are you ready to begin your trip to the other side?
Death is an old friend of mine

The blood became alive
When I was trapped inside
And I can feel the dark passenger coming
My mothers blood and mine
Uniquely intertwined
Help me finally push your memory's from my mind
My hunger to destroy
When I was just a boy
It pulled me deeper into some thing that I now enjoy
The ritual begins
Evil will meet its end?
In your destruction I will finally feel whole again

There is no more time for apologizes
Never let emotions
Take hold of me
Are you ready to begin your trip to the other side?
Death is an old friend of mine

I have become your nightmare
Say good-bye to every thing

From what I get from it, it's about someone who is about to take their own life and death is considered an old friend of him/her (something they are all too familiar with).

I saw the lyrics a little more metaphorically... maybe the narrator is trying to cut someone out of their life; perhaps a former love, or the friend who betrayed David and stole money from him.

The "my mother's blood and mine, uniquely intertwined" line intrigues me, though.

Thoughts?

Finally the lyrics are here!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!

Hmm...I think the song is about someone who had hurt David in the past, someone he wants to get back at or forget about. The lyrics seem like David wanting to "kill" the memory of that person.

Ohh my.....chills just went down my spine reading the lyrics....I think it's all about the holocaust,

They are the ghosts of innocents
That have awoken from my dreams
Welcome to your nightmare
Say good-bye to every thing
All your past obscenities
They have determined where I stand
Echoing Cries, in the time that it began

David dreams about innocent Jewish people crying and suffering long ago

You can't escape your judgment
I hear them calling out your name
Do not beg for mercy now
You never showed any to them
Embrace your finally punishment
There's not a soul to hear you scream
I have to thank you for letting out the animal in me


these words mean to me the time has come to face their conviction...
the people that are responsable for the torment and pain and suffering they caused on innocent lives.

Hear me now
Feel my blade
There is no more time for apologizes
Never let emotions
Take hold of me
Are you ready to begin your trip to the other side?
Death is an old friend of mine

these words mean to me that he wishes he could see them all die and go to hell...after all , the Jews had the same saddened fate.


The blood became alive
When I was trapped inside
And I can feel the dark passenger coming
My mothers blood and mine
Uniquely intertwined
Help me finally push your memory's from my mind
My hunger to destroy
When I was just a boy


His mother must have explained what the holocaust was about when he was a small boy...
how sad and scary that must have been for a little boy to hear....anger to hear things bad happened to loved ones.

It pulled me deeper into some thing that I now enjoy
The ritual begins
Evil will meet its end?
In your destruction I will finally feel whole again

There is no more time for apologizes
Never let emotions
Take hold of me
Are you ready to begin your trip to the other side?
Death is an old friend of mine

I have become your nightmare
Say good-bye to every thing


Well....this song means David wont rest....he wants revenge...for the Jewish people.

Actually that makes more sense, Dawn...

And since Never Again has the same theme, I wonder if it was hard for David to choose which of these two songs to put on the album. I know if it had been me, it would have been a difficult decision.

B-side "Old Friend" is about the TV show Dexter and how he has no emotions. He calls his dark side "The Dark Passenger" and how it teaches him "The Code" as a way to channel his violent urges towards people who deserve it. As a kid he was covered in his mothers blood when she was murdered. Now death is just an old friend of his
this is the meaning behind the new song. I dont have much to say because i have never seen the show but the first thought that came into my head when i heard the song was a serial killer (yeah with halloween coming up). Apparently the guy in the show is a serial killer but channels his violence to true murderers. The guy became pretty psychotic ever since his mom was killed before his eyes when he was a boy... hence the lyrics towards the end of the song

Either way, both explanations make sense. And, unless we can ask him ourselves, there's no telling WHAT was going through David's mind when he wrote those lyrics. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'd love to pick his brain about what he was thinking when he sat down to write several of these masterpieces that he's composed with the help of his brothers in the band.

There are several songwriters over the years I've wanted to pick the brains of... and David is the one, out of all of them, who intrigues me the most as to his songwriting process. Every once in a while, he'll say something in the lyrics of a song that has me diving to the dictionary to look up the meaning...

And true, if we could ask David about what the lyrics to this particular song mean, then all the better.

To me it sounds like an ex-stepfather of his or a mother's old boyfriend that abused him or her in some way. But the "dexter" meaning rings a bell. I've heard that somewhere before.

I too am intrigued by David's song writing process. I know that according to interviews that I've seen, first he lays down a rhythm in scat form, then writes a melody to go with it. Then come the lyrics... but WHAT inspires him? That would be my first question.

i wanna ask him, why he picked that particular topic for each song. I mean Dan and Mike just send him the structure of the song right? How does he knows what topic fits and all that?

He listens to the song and determines the vibe it gives off for him, and he writes about a subject that relates to that vibe.

I have a little question. I've made another Lyrics video, this time about "Old Friend". And I've written down "feel my plea" and not "blade". Now I am sure blade is correct, it does make a lot of sense because of the connection to Dexter - but every time I listen to it I hear plea - now my question is, because I am German and not sure about it, is the sentence "Feel my plea" possible, too? I think so because I can also say "Feel my words" - it's philosophic (?) but even possible. I would be glad about an answer ;)

Haha guys he wrote the lyrics to go with the TV show. I heard David's a fan. Thats what was going through his mind. Im gonna check out the show just for the hell of it. But you guys can interpret however you like. Thats what i love about disturbed's music. It written so you can take your own meaning out if it.

Actually for this album in interviews he said he asked dan and mike for darker music. So he had the topics already in his head. He just needed to conjure up lyrics and a melody to the instrumentals
