I fail to do
What I'm trying
I've these walls
And everyone who dies hears others times

This immediacy
Is unknown
To me and appears to be
Unreached by everyone I've known

Show me unfocused fears
In disguise
Shows me I must live
To die

This lake
Is on fire
It's been every dream to me
It's been every desire

I awaken
Filling up the space
I back away
And it covers me up all cozy

These waves are the call
Of time
What's sent ahead is sent behind
In rime

    General CommentThis song talks a lot about time. Einstein said time was a totally physical thing, like gravity, and the way we think about is kind of an illusion, so "what's sent ahead is sent behind" could mean that there's no real past or present, and when you die you'll finally see the "immediacy" of it all, and maybe even a pattern or a plan, a rime.
