The Nameless Lyrics
Accept it (undermine)

Malice (Utter weakness)
Enraged (admit it)
Don't condescend (don't even disagree)

This song is about a guy who abuses his partner. "Stay inside your hole let me take control" it sounds like he is telling her about or this is his trian of thought. The chorus relates to the topic greatly
"I never wanted anybody more, then I want you. The only thing I ever really loved, was hurting you. I never wanted anybody more, then I want you. The only thing I ever really loved, hate"
The song builds up to a climax where he finishes the song saying "your mine"' as in with all his beatings he has take her as a posetion instead of a person.

I think the song tells about a person who has dual side of a person. How the other one tryin' to control the meek side. The inner and the caged evil, yet powerful and smarter, one is trying to convince the weaker one, which is visible to the people, to let him take control of the body. His, weaker one's, stupidity, innocence, naive thoughts, weakness is not only hurting him but also the inner one.

I think the song is about a man being violent and obsessive over his partner. One minute he loves her, the next he's beating her. That kind of thing.
And to all those people who are just posting random bullshit, go do it somewhere else. Some people actually want to find out the meanings of songs, not read your crap. GTFO.

I'm not sure if this is right, probably not, but i think this seems like its their remake of purity, like him being the stalker and all that probably wrong but i just got that from the best interpretation (never wanted anybody more than i wanted you) yeah well, ok.

It's about how for a long time Corey was in love with a positively loathsome creation. Possibly his previous image in the band. I read it somewhere Corey himself said that this song was kinda a hint to all those people who fucked them over and really stirred up shit on the IOWA cycle.

This song is about a violent obsession with someone,with manic depressive modes. There are moments of loving and caring then he goes into confusion and bliss, snapping and abusing/controlling the person.

The song is really a part 2 to the song Purity.

This song is about a man's relationship to God. An unhappy one at that, where he feels God is extremely selfish for demanding such attention and dedication (As our church leaders instruct us.) It's about this guy complaining to God, and God is just beating him down with intimidation. God is bragging about his power in this song as well ("Stay inside the hole - let me take control DOMINATE You were nothing more - you were something less INNOCENT Something has to give - something has to break OMNIPRESENT") Man is nothing more than an innocent simpleton, God is the Omnipresent, dominating and controlling one. That's IT.

The stupid fuck that said he knows the guy isn't Corey, you are a stupid fuck, he was quoting Corey, not pretending to be him.
