A Little Piece of Heaven Lyrics

Before the story begins, is it such a sin,
For me to take what's mine, until the end of time?
We were more than friends, before the story ends,
And I will take what's mine, create what
God would never design

Our love had been so strong for...

    This song has kind of a complicated storyline.in an interview the rev said this about the song he wrote not word for word): it's about a couple, the girl is messing with him, and yes, he does finally kill her. BUT her spirit comes back and repossesses her body, and she kills him. He also repossesses his body along with the girl after his death, and they forgive each other, get married, and kill everyone at their wedding.

    OK, I guess it wasn't that complicated, and I know it probably sounds stupid...but that's what the rev said it was about. Pretty kick ass song.

    This song is based on the story "a rose for Emily" but yeah I don't know if she's messing with him, it sounds more like he's gonna propose but he's afraid she's gonna say no so he kills her before she does (I was weak with fear that something would go wrong. before the possibilities came true, I took all possibilities from you.)

    then yes, she does come back and kill him, then they get married and kill everyone yadda yadda.

    This is a very beautiful song and I can really listen to it hundereds of times without getting bored, but the lyrics is a bit stupid. It's about a couple, the boy kills the girl, the girl comes back from hell and kills him, they finally apolagize each other and have a marriage killing people.

    If you ever had an abortion you would understand the song means abortion. Believe me, I just passed that moment.

    Erased all mv in your mind and think about the song. They are friends with benefit > girl got pregnant > lets kill our baby, dont cry, we love you but we're not ready. Then they got married at the end
    The way I did abortion in illegal hospital is using pills putting inside deeply every 6-3hours until the sack was broken, then the nurse stabbed inside more than 50 times deeply to let the fetus out to make sure she collected every part of fetus.
    At first I think like all of you, the guy killed the girl, blah blah frome story in mv, but after I passed that hell on earth, I got it. The guy forced me to do too.

    Ok, I know the story is murder and necrophilia and zombies and killing. But maybe there's metaphor, guys. How about this: (it beckons back to the saying "dead at 25, buried 60 years later)

    The guy loves his girl but he loves her too, so as an escape he goes and has an affair. This "rips her heart out" and "kills her". Then, the two stay together and he uses her even more, because it becomes this emotionally abusive relationship where he can do whatever he wants with her. This is represented by the "unspeakable acts" he does with her dead body. Finally, she's had enough and does the same to him. Now he "dies" of heartbreak, and knows how she feels because he had to go through the same hell as her. Finally he wants to make it up to her, and they do stay together, but they're both really dead inside because of the emotional distrust that both have. Instead, they love the rest of their lives together hurting eachother and anybody else.

    my interpretation of this song is aboh=ut a man who is in love with a girl finally proposes to her and she rejects his proposal so he becomes enraged with anger because he had a feeling that would happen in the beginning so before more can go on he kills her,sows her up, and bangs her dead body. eventually she comes back from the grave and does the same to him but he asked for her forgiveness. She forgives him for what hes done to her and they get married and start a killing spree and live happily ever after :)

    As stated by M. Shadows at an A7X show: It's about a man who proposes to his girl, and she says no. He loses it, kills her, and does "unspeakable" things with her dead body. Then, she comes back and kills him. They make up, get married and go on a killing spree together. The end... Such a beautiful love story.

    This song was made because they wanted that kind of "Tim Burton" feel. Not based on a freaking story. I saw their "inside the studio" movie and A7X said that's why they made "A Little Piece of Heaven".

    I believe that this song is trying to say that if you try, everything will work out in the end.

    very similar to the poem "porphyrias lover" by robert browning (1830's)where the narrator of the poem in a state of paranoia/psychosis strangles his lover (porphyria) in an effort to forevfer preserve the moment of happiness and her beauty. he is justified in his actions as he believes since porphyria did not scream or utter a sound that she was accepting of this fate (though she was strangled with her own hair which the narrator is obsessed with, she may not have been able to utter a sound). he is also justified because no one especially god interceded to spare porphyia. Porphyria now "gives herself to him forever"

    ***anyway i posted this because it is kind of cool that a poem written almost 200 years ago shares such similar characteristcs.

    I believe the song is about abortion.

    "Is it such a sin to take what's mine..."(The choice of aborting is what's his)
    "God would never design" abortion.
    He was "weak with fear" that the child she is bearing will take her love away from him.
    He "took all possibility" of that happening by...

    A. performing an abortion
    B. outright killing her

    I leave the choice up to you but I will take the more realistic route (in modern times) and say he performed an abortion.

    -This stanza is a late-term abortion-
    So he "stabbed" the baby "fifty fucking times"
    "Ripped her"(the baby girl's) "heart out".

    -This stanza is an abortion with pills-
    He's "never been quite so fucking deep in" having sex without protection of course.
    Generally women look older after having babies so he keeps her young and preserved by spraying his "fountain" of abortion pills on her "youth" (babies)

    The baby from the "little crime" of the late-term abortion is disposed of with a "heater" (furnace).
    It's not the baby's time to die "but bye, bye".
    "When the fire dies"(The baby is disposed of) it's not over. He hears a baby crying even though he killed her.("baby, don't cry")

    -talking to the dead baby-
    "you had my heart" (he was the father)
    He apologizes to her but...

    she comes back from hell and repossessess his girlfriend's body "with which [he'd] misbehaved" and kills him.

    He realizes he was up "in a piece of heaven" playing God.
    He's suffering in hell and trying to make it up to the baby he killed.
    "We're coming back" He gets to be with his gf and
    "live forever". So they're both in hell because she's the one that let him perform an abortion on her.
    They "have a wedding" in hell which is ironic because they're just going to "start the killing" of babies again. At this point we realize that he thought the "error of [his] ways" was not being married to his girl.

    He kills her, performs sexual acts on the corpse, corpse comes back and kills him, he begs for forgiveness, they get married, and go on killing spree.

    The song doesnt have any sort of meaning. They just made it to have fun. They say it in all their interviews....

    I know that the music video shows it all and the band has made comments on the meaning but my personal interpretation is the following: (one last note before you read this is a huge word for word interpretation)

    This song is about a man telling his wife that she is pregnant here is why i think this

    "Before the story begins, is it such a sin,
    For me to take what's mine, until the end of time?" this in my thinking is the start of the conversation about her being pregnant he has gotten her pregnant and they only just met and they don't know each other very well which is why he is taking what's his (the baby) and therefore he thinks they need to stay together.

    "Before the possibilities came true,
    I took all possibility from you
    Almost laughed myself to tears,
    Conjuring her deepest fears"
    This part is the conversation developing he is saying that he took possiblities from her because she is now a mother, he almost laughed himself to tears as he trying to make a joke out of it and lighten the mood the deepest fears are her fears of being a mother without being prepared.

    "Must have stabbed her fifty fucking times,
    I can't believe it,
    Ripped her heart out right before her eyes",
    This part is where she slowly takes it all in and the stabbing and heart ripping is a metaphor for her life being turned upside down by the pregnancy.

    "I can keep you lookin' young and preserved forever,
    With a fountain to spray on your youth whenever" which is him saying he'll do anything for this to work.

    "And I know, I know it's not your time
    But bye, bye
    And a word to the wise when the fire dies
    You think it's over but it's just begun
    But baby don't cry" this is another way of saying her life has been changed saying bye, bye to her old life and when the "fire dies down" she will begin to think it's ok but then she will have to take care of the baby and then the situation will only just begin.

    "You had my heart, at least for the most part
    'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, we fell apart
    Let's make a new start" he now says that he realy did care for her and that they can make a completely new start if she wants to.

    "Smiling right from ear to ear
    Almost laughed herself to tears

    Must have stabbed him fifty fucking times
    I can't believe it
    Ripped his heart out right before his eyes"
    Now she's starting to accept it but he's starting to freak out about his jobs as a dad.

    "Now that it's done I realize the error of my ways" He is now appologising because he acted to calm before hand and he was making it look like it was planned.

    "I gotta make up for what I've done
    'Cause I was all up in a piece of heaven
    While you burned in hell, no peace forever" and this is him still saying he'll do anything and that he didn't realise how bad this would be for her.

    "'Cause I really always knew that my little crime
    Would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs" this is him saying he'll do anything for her (again)

    "I will suffer for so long
    (What will you do, not long enough)
    To make it up to you
    (I pray to God that you do)
    I'll do whatever you want me to do
    (Well then I'll grant you one chance)
    And if it's not enough
    (If it's not enough, If it's not enough)
    If it's not enough
    (Not enough)
    Try again
    (Try again)
    And again
    (And again)
    Over and over again" I believe that this is their conversation the brackets being the girl the non brackets being a guy.

    "We're coming back, coming back
    We'll live forever, live forever
    Let's have a wedding, have a wedding
    Let's start the killing, start the killing"
    This is the both of them accepting the situation and when it says start the killing that is a complex metaphor for telling their parents and relatives (who did not believe that they would work out) that they have a baby and are getting married.

    "Do you take this man in death for the rest of your unnatural life?
    (Yes, I do.)
    Do you take this woman in death for the rest of your unnatural life?
    (I do)
    I now pronounce you..." The unnatural life refers to the strange way they will make it work between them this is obviously their wedding.

    And then at the end he repeats his promises to her once more as a kind of speech.

    I hope you enjoyed my lyric interpretation took me about about an hour to get it all together, this is 100% my own interpretation on the song and is probably not what the song is meant to be about however the lyrics do fit in perfectly.
    Oh and by the way if your thinking this is quite deep and a great interpretation then thankyou because i am only 14 but i am realy deep this is my first interpretation and more will come (all will be long word for word explanations.)
