That awful memory of yours what blessing what a curse and all our confessing forgotten every word we're saying from the womb I heard my name on your lips its sounds the same as the many times I've ignored it since that day that awful memory of yours ill never make anyone happy that way telling all the mistakes that I've made but I promise you ill never be the same would you found me like a treasure from a long forgotten time and if you kept me here forever you know I wouldn't mind welcome home oh welcome home you know that id embrace you I was to a shamed to face saying welcome home welcome home you know I want you to be mine you were patient you were fine you were patient you were fine that awful memory of yours what a blessing what a curse of are confessing forgotten every word we're saying from the womb I heard my name on your lips its sounds the same as the many times I've ignored it since that day welcome home oh welcome home you know that I'd embrace you I was to a shamed to face you saying welcome home welcome home

    General CommentI know that the guys in Copeland are christians... I think that this song is about how God forgives and forgets.. "and all our confessing forgotten every word we're saying from the womb." this could have been a time when Aaron felt like he was getting away from God but then he knew that God would forgive him and welcome him back, hence the whole "welcome home."

    My InterpretationWhat a difficult song to find meanings for! But let me try:

    I will take a few ideas from the overall lyrics and bind it to a Christian scenario.

    1. The awful memory of God who forgets about your human condition.
    - Blessing, because we
    - A curse perhaps because we hold on to what we are. It's our human nature and we wish to keep it for ourselves.

    2. From the womb I heard my name
    - It sounds the same as...
    - The many times I've ignored it...

    So this guy is being cryptic about his feelings. He feels as if being transformed will deprive him from what he really is. But in the end, he changes his mind and says this:

    3. Would you found me like a treasure (Deuteronomy 7:6) from a long forgotten time, and if you kept me here forever you know I wouldn't mind.

    4. I was too ashamed to face you saying "welcome home".
