No More Sorrow Lyrics
In your lies
Do you tell yourself I don't realize
Your crusade's a disguise
Replace freedom with fear
You trade money for lives
I'm aware of what you've done
No no more sorrow
I've paid for your...

I seriously think its against the illuminati. Listen to it closely, and you will see what I mean. Especially where it says " You trade money for lives'. Meaning they get money for selling there soul to the devil

Perhaps at the time it was referring to Bush…but now it refers to Obama as well. Almost all politicians are alike. Obama is just a puppet too. He failed as the savior so many of you believed he was. One man does believe in freedom: freedom from government, freedom from injustice, freedom form corruption, freedom from imperialism, freedom from unjust wars. One man is a champion of Liberty, Freedom, Justice and most importantly, the Constituion. Ron Paul is that man! Educate yourself…seek the truth…support freedom. Ron Paul!!

Of course it's about thieves and hypocrites. But which ones??? it is deeper than just him screaming at all thieves and hypocrites. It could be taken as him speaking just to Bush. AKA he is talking about how he believed in him at first: "I had hope, I believed..." then how as the war has dragged on how he has lost his faith in him: "...but I'm begining to think that I've been deceived." also you can see with the verses:
"your crusades a disguise,
replace freedom with fear you trade money for lives."
As in how he believes that the war isn't just about freeing oppressed people (the disguise)but about making money (the oil from Iraq). As a resule American soldiers have died.
Or maybe it is just about them being pissed at their record company (though I doubt their label has killed people in the process of making money lol)

It's about his father John Podesta.

I think it represents every type of corrupt corperation (government, religion, music intustries trying to change you, war)

This is about the music industry in general. Chester is a part of the music industry and if you know anything about that business you know that they trade money for lives and they act like they are all good but in reality they are thieves and hypocrites. This is definitely something that affected him personally, remember "I've paid for your mistakes." This song is about him personally paying for the music industry's mistakes. They call artists products, not people and they sell them like a product. They steal 90 percent of the money that the artist deserves and sometimes even take it all if the artist doesn't have a lawyer check the agreement.

I'm pretty sure the song is about religion. It definitely suits it well.

Illuminati, it's very clear.

Idk if this is the original meaning and I doubt it is, but the first thing I thought of when I heard this song was the Catholic church during the Reformation. During this, the Catholic church did the following:
-Sold Indulgences (You trade money for lives)
-The Crusades (Your crusade's a disguise,Replace freedom With fear)
-Lutherism Began and was very popular so many left the Catholic church (Your time has come to be replaced)
-Pope became more secular and many priest were corrupt and went against the things that they taught (Abuse power with greed- Thieves and hypocrites)
Probably not the intent of the lyrics, but still correlates with facts from the Reformation

Its obvious its abt a pearson in a higer position bt nt necesserly abt bush b/c tr r more hypocrits lyk meles zenawi of ethiopia and gadafi of libiya. Bt its closer to that of meles. If u dnt knw him, he is a man eating animal who lost his countries ports. And he is abt to die so he is 'paying' for wat he has done

Pinta is wrong, as the song is about how bush was a thieving,hypocritical liar.
Though I disagree with the theme of this song, I think it is about religion.
I think the person at first trusted and believed in their religion("I had hope, I believed"), but later started to doubt it and came to believe it was never true.
I think the person believes that the churches, pastors, and other people supporting the growth of the religion are deceiving people ("I'm beginning to think that I've been deceived") for their own personal gain. The "Thieves and Hypocrites" would be the people at the church taking peoples money.
Now that he thinks that the religion is all a big scam, he is done asking for forgiveness for every little mistake he has made. ("No more sorrow").
I am a Christian and strongly disagree with the message I interpreted, however I find it very interesting.

Hmm.... I'm thinking he's talking about how people can be thieves or
Hypocrites as he says this in his song a few times and this is seen from experience maybe ? He than talks about how he doesn't want any more sorrow from that person as he says "no, no more sorrow I pay for your mistakes " explaining he pays for that person's mistakes and he also tells NO. Just NO I don't Want to pay for your mistakes anymore. Basically he tells you the world is full of thieves and hypocrites and people who you use and you pay for their mistakes.

It is simple-
It is about those who have given pain to others and are now paying for their sins and can't understand their mistakes.
The speaker here is frustated and wants vengeance. He/she says that the sinners will pay for their deeds and their good times are about to be erased.

If he doesn't want any more sorrow, why does he continue being sad? It makes no sense, but you can hear it in the lyrics. Trust me.
anonymous Aug 10th, 2011 8:52pm report
I find it funny that many of you say it is about how bad bush was, but all the lyrics can fit our president, Barak Obama funny.
