Coheed and Cambria Lyrics Cuts Marked in the March of Men

Listen to the world out on the outside pressing inAre you ready on my mark?Fingers given names and with the last word they ascendOn the comfort of their well being...in armsInto something they can't stop but wish that they could killYou're the answer to their prayerIn your last hour standYou'll notice the one that you had loved in dreams is here among the othersChase it's you I want but if I can't have herThen why should I spend any more time in a world that's going to end pretty soon?I need you now more than I ever didI'll hand myself over for youThis comlink's lost its frequency and I feel that we're coming home shortHere take me instead I'd rather not see her off aloneScattered amongst the killing streets the children slate defenseIs god's work to have us fail?Rivered blood streams out the dead as bodies foul the airI'll make peace when this is doneIn arms...we stormSlowly the streets begin to fill with new flesh bound to boneArmed and ready it begins again...In your last hour standYou'll notice the one that you had loved in dreams is here among the othersChase it's you I want but if I can't have herThen why should I spend any more time in a world that's going to end pretty soon?I need you now more than I ever didI'll hand myself over for youThis comlink's lost its frequency and I feel that we're coming home shortHere take me instead I'd rather not see her off aloneTonight we stormTonight...Deliver a favor to my love Deliver a favor to my love Deliver a favor to my love Deliver a favor to my love In your last hour standYou'll notice the one that you had loved in dreams is here among the othersChase it's you I want but if I can't have herThen why should I spend any more time in a world that's going to end pretty soon?I need you now more than I ever didI'll hand myself over for youThis comlink's lost its frequency and I feel that we're coming home shortHere take me instead I'd rather not see her off alone

Coheed and Cambria Lyrics and Interpretation A favor house atlantic

Coheed and Cambria Lyrics A Favor House Atlantic Interpretation
This is my personal interpretation of the song "A Favor House Atlantic", bear in mind I've not yet gotten a comic book. So if you see something wrong or you don't agree with don't fret. Just let me know in the comments and I'll address your concern.
Your eyes tell the story of a day you wish you couldRecall the moments that once have Retract the footsteps that brought us to this favor I wouldn’t ask this of youGood eye sniper I’ll shoot you runThe words you scribbled on the walls The loss of friends you didn’t have I’ll call you when the time is right Are you in or are you out For them all to know the end of us all Run quick they’re behind us Didn’t think we’d ever make it This close to safety in one piece Now you want to kill meIn the act of what could maybe Save us from sleep and what we are
Rhyme Scheme:
ABCDCEFBGHIJKLLMNOPQ
It seems the rhyme scheme has no correlation to meaning at this point. What I gather from the rest of the CD this song is a scene that starts off with the guy from "Cuts marked in the March of Men" that says "this comlinks lost it's frequency and I feel that we're coming home short" in other words somebody died on a mission and suddenly finds the person he thought died alive and in captivity. He then attempts to spring the girl but fails.
I'm going to assume the "favor" is the rescue attempt and that "Atlantic" is the name of the place she is being held prisoner, hence the title "A Favor House Atlantic".
Line by Line:
1: Serves to let us know she is beat up and wasn't taken care of well, saying that he could see the horror in "your eyes".
2: Remember what happened the day you were captured?
3-4: He starts understanding that she may have betrayed them and let herself be caught rather than her just plain messing up the mission and getting killed, and in the end betrayed by the people she was really working for and thrown in jail.
5-6: Obviously referring to a prison guard sniping them as they make their escape. He tells her I got your back in so many words.
7: When one scribbles on walls when in captivity it is typically an attempt to pass time or keep from going insane. I seems to be a little of both.
8: It seems as though this guys side didn't trust her, so she never really lost friends when she betrayed them because they never really were friends.
9-10: This line suggests they're hiding or ducking behind something and waiting for a guard to pass or a sensor to skip over them or something of the sort, then asks her if she still wants to take part in this escape.
11: This guy knows that if he rescues the girl that betrayed his people he is going to either be in trouble with them if he escapes, or in trouble with his enemy if he is caught.
12-14: They're caught, the jig is up and guards are chasing after them and obviously surprised they've made it this close to "safety".
15: Uh oh, this guy has been duped again. Seems like she was really still working for the other side, and they used her as bait to foil his real mission.
16-17: This is where it gets confusing. He then suggests he does a faux betrayal, maybe to keep him by telling the people "we can use him", and this will save them from what they are because they're earlier options had them screwed either way, but this way they can both stay in good standing with their respective groups and both still live.
18-21: In the end he is saying his goodbyes and being hauled off by what I see in my head as a bunch of goons. "Face step let down....face step step down" sounds an awful lot like marching, similar to what one would do with a military prisoner.
