we plod our way.
through the ashes and the dust.
left of our plans. of all things we've shared.
today buries tomorrow. but no stone is raised.
killed in cold blood.
at the onset of night. today buries tomorrow

    General Commentit's to do with change, how people change, how things change, and how everything we once knew had died in a sense we dont know them anymore.

    General Commenta sentiment echoed throughout the entire album, this song is about the singer's thoughts on his life and, perhaps, suicide. he plods his way, passionless, through his life. everything that he once knew is dead and gone (old selves, old friends, ashes and dust, left of our plans). he knows it will happen again, and that nothing ever comes of the relationships he has. he is so absorbed by his current depression, his current negative outlook on life, that he sees no hope for the future (today buries tomorrow). it's effortless, the destruction on his life. it doesn't take work and nothing ever comes of it (no stone is raised).

    he, himself, is killed in cold blood by his own hand. he sees what everything has meant up to this point in his life, and can't really see things changing. night, as the album reveals, is his retreat and the only time he feels alive at all.
