Default Boiling Point Lyric

January 26th, 2011, 06:07
My best guess: I printed it out in 20 point font, pinned it to the curtain, and sang it while I was washing up.
Best applause from the drinkers in the lounge my singing ever got.



Once upon a time,
between that sturly crime, (if sturly is a word, I'd say it means bad)
One box set you up and swinged you round (something about a car?)
Hardest he could stop it on the road

The sap is startin is gettin' lost (the poor sap Razz)
in a land of gransion and betrust (sounds like Gransion, could be corruption)
and Realia's the harp on his slack
even the police wanted hush

He was walking on a the vain line
Gunheads here don't cry
whilst dealing with the devil
and a fear he has high

From the North to the South,
We're coming to the boiling point
From the East to the West
To care what's ever with your own

From the North to the South,
We're coming to the boiling point
From the East to the West
To care what's ever with your own in the boiling point.

In the swarm of light 'n violence
Which 6 people throw off the mask
Unsure whether he will find her
But should we always do our best?

chorus

——oooOooo——

Here's Doubler's best guess:

Here's my educated guess. Some small changes, some things copied. I tried to supply arguments in the form of clarifications. The first couplet's a mystery to me, really.
I do have a second suggestion that would make that a time between childhood and being fully grown up, refering to the daughter. But in fact I'm completely clueless

—-

Once upon a time,
between this (his?) dirty crime, (What crime? Or what cry? Between this and what else exactly?)
When Boss set you up and swinged you around, (No clue about this one for now)
And honestly get started on the road. (Between what's in the second line and this?)

Except his daughter was/has got lost, (Saul's daughter)
in a land of curruption and maltrust. (Realia's not very friendly, and full of curruption)
Guerillia's are hot on his neck, (these two lines refer to challenges Saul would face)
even the police want him hushed. (hushed - quieted, stop making a fuss)

He was walking on the very line, (Walking on a thin line! [/sings] - Maybe 'veering line/lie'? 'Fiery line/lie'? Not entirely sure and this seemed most likely)
Getting his own cry, (what is it with things that sound like 'cry'? )
whilst dealing with the devil,
and a fear he has high.

From the North to the South,
We're coming to the boiling point
From the East to the West
To care what's happened with your own. (your own - your blood)

From the North to the South,
We're coming to the boiling point,
From the East to the West,
To care what's happened with your own at the boiling point. (boiling point - the place where all hell breaks loose / the moment all hell breaks loose.)

In a swarm of lights and violence
in which people throw off their mask (ie. show their real face - the kind of person they really are)
Unsure of whether he will find her
But should he always do the best? (moral choices the poor sap has to make. If doing a bad deed gets him closer to his daughter, should he still be bound by his morality?)

Etc.
