    This story is based loosely on a story Serj has either heard or made himself, it could be fact, but he revealed it backstage at a concert in 2010 to a few VIP fans who asked about Lie Lie Lie, it's about a couple, who are madly in love, married, the lot, then the man finds out that this girl, the love of his life, is his younger sister hence;"Cause Im your brother, your brother,Have some pride, And now you love me, you love me, Then die tonight"

    So, due to them feeling so disgusted with themselves they decide to commit suicide together, to rid the world of their sins, however, the man decided to push his wife/sister of the cliff, rather than jump with her, and he lived on, hence; "Broke her little bones, on the boulders below"

    My source of this is my friend was one of these VIP Fans, who told me that story which he heard right out of the mouth of the man behind the lyrics.

    So the message behind this, in my view, is that the bond between family is the strongest bond one can have with people. So "she" jumps off a cliff, right? So she, I presume is a lover I.e wife. But but "when she fell I smiled". So he doesn't really feel sorrow from her suicide. But he commits suicide with his sister since "I'm your brother... have some pride". The family are portrayed to be proud of eachother. He smiles at his wife falling and breaking her bones. She has lied to him, so it's almost as though Serj is giving the message that karma comes around to those who lie.
    That's my personal view on these lyrics, so I could have completely misinterpreted the meaning behind these lyrics. Regardless, the song is great and I've recently purchased Elect The Dead (the album which this song features on) and it was definitely worth it. He's a brilliant musician!

    It's obviously about incest and suicide.

    My interpretation goes like this:
    This song is about a man who continually rapes his 5-8 year old sister, convincing her to never tell their parents. After a particularly horrific rape session, the sister cracks and tells on her rapist. He escapes barely, taking his sister with him. He runs to a cliff, where he and his sister used to hang out. He and his sibling stand on the edge, his sister frightened of what her brother has become. He convinces her to jump off with him, saying death is better than what lies ahead. So, she lets go of his hand, and he shoves her off, singing an old lullaby he sang to her after she passed out during rape. The authorities find him dead, impaling himself on a rock.

    Well it's clear he convinces his "girlfriend?" to jump off a cliff, and it sounds like he made it out to be that he was going to, but obviously he doesn't jump. So the only ambiguous thing is why he didn't, personally i think it's because she did something, or maybe he's just an asshole, who knows?

    This song is about love, incest and lying. I think this is because the story is all about a wizard falling in love with a girl. She don't love him back. He casts a spell on the girl

    Later on he finds out that the girl he loves is his sister and he cant break the spell unless he/she dies so he convinced her to jump off a cliff with him. He didn't jump while she did and watched her die there for it is a lie.
