"The Him" as written by and Stephen Paul David/hook Morris....
Some days you waste your life away
These times I find no words to say
A crime I once committed filled me
Too much of heaven's eyes I saw through
Only when meanings have no reason
They're taken beyond your sense of right

Small boy kneels, wandering in a great hall
He pays pennance to the air above him
White circles, black lines surround me
Reborn, so plain my eyes see
This is the reason that I came here
To be so near to such a person

I'm so tired, I'm so tired

    General CommentSomeone feels guilty for the sinns ha have made. He feels sorry for his friends who doesn't realise what he is doing wrong.

    He visits a church, confesses in the stand (white cirkles, black lines). Feels relieved after. "The Him" is God, and he feels secure, perhaps, when he awaits his death.

    I like this song. Simple but still emotionall.

    General CommentI have little idea what this song is really about, if anything. One thing I know for sure is that this song was made for days of heavy rain with no wind.
