I hold up my hands
I stare
And they are clean, untainted by the world
All I can do is sit and think
Think of what I could have changed
"Why, oh why", I ask the sky
In return all I hear is thunder
Blinded by my light, my day
Guided by my faith through the garden
Bless me while I make my stand
Watching, waiting for the storm
Comfort cannot compensate
Nothing could replace your arms
One sigh away from going mad
Reason hanging by a thread
Scrawled on the wall in tears and blood, these will be my final words

No tears
No sorrow
I’ll wait for tomorrow

I gave everything I had
I gave everything I did not
All this time
All that time
This is not the way it was
Faceless figures in the dark gesture me to join their cause
I stand by what I believe even though I know the reality
Drain me of the dreams I’ve earned
Strip me of the pain
Make me one again
Find another way to breathe
I no longer give you consent
Lay the noose around my neck
Tie me to the stars above
Scrawled on the wall in tears and blood, these will be my final words

No tears
No sorrow
I’ll wait for tomorrow

Now
Here on this day
It begins
Pure innocence
Gone with doubt
Hold my flight up above
Cry your name to the wind

Wind my mind back to where I began
Try to accept my role in this game

I’ll wait here for my time
I lived a lie and it made me one
I felt complete
I felt whole
I take it back, as I

Fall to my knees and reach for the sky

Take my eyes and make me one with the night
Use my fears to make this slow
Take my life and tell me who I should be
Pray I cannot call this home

Shrine
Take me alive to your hive
Vacate your throne as I die
Rain for days
Melt away
Bring me down
Bring me home

Have you come to wash my sins away
This, I wonder
You’ve turned blackest night to crystal
Yet, I wonder
Granted, every day I am dying
Still, I wonder
Why have you relinquished your life
This, I wonder

Nothing seems the same now that you are gone
I’ll wait, I’ll wait
For my star to fall with your name engraved
I’ll wait, I’ll wait
Still, I know the truth and what lies within
Wake up, please wake up
This is killing me and all that I am
Wake up, please wake up
What else do I have? What else do I want?
I’ll wait, I’ll wait
I won’t see the world like I did before
I’ll wait, I’ll wait
Day by day, I live, while I wait to die
Wake up, please wake up
Nothing seems the same now that you are gone
Wake up, please wake up and make it stop

I hold up my hands
I stare
And they are broken beyond all repair
All I can do is sit and think
Wondering how much more I’ll sink
"Why, oh why", I ask the sky
Silence is its sole reply
Blinded by my light, my day
Light that once led my way
Bless me while I make my stand
Fighting for this cursed land
Comfort cannot compensate
I have not yet begun to hate
One sigh away from going mad
Now I am one short of what I once had
How could I, in all my time, destroy something so divine

Breathe in the sky
Bleed out the night
Breathe sky just to bleed night; I can’t breathe

I hold up my hands
I stare
And they are broken beyond all repair
The sun, the moon, the earth, and the rain
All you ever gave was pain

Without you, I am damned
Forsaken
Forgotten

    General CommentI think (it's my friend's interpretation too, he might have gotten it from somewhere) this is about a Roman soldier after they crucified Christ. Just look deep into it and you can see it. "How could I in all my time, destroy something so divine?"...quite self explanitory. "Without you, I am damned". There you go, I think this is the right interpretation.

    General CommentI thought it was about a close fan to the members of the band who commited suicide and the members' experience throughout such tragedy (november she died, december, etc)

    General CommentI agree with atomsplitter on some level, but the song is more complex then that. November is from the POV of Judas, talking about how he betrayed Jesus, "standing by" his faith, knowing the whole time what he was doing. And the last line is his killing himself. December seems to be about a follower of Jesus who becomes disillusioned, while still yearning to believe. Transubstantiation is from a someone who isn't quite a follower of Jesus, but is entertaining the idea, while struggling with his doubts. And finally, The Sun, The Moon, The Earth, And The Rain is a rehashing of November, but from the perspective of a Roman soldier who gains, and loses, his faith in the instant of the death of Jesus. The last bit, with the overlapping voices is painting a picture of the differnet perspectives of this incident, the first being Jesus, the second being the Roman Soldier, and the third being the disillusioned follower.

    Well, that's my take on it, anyways. Feel free to rip me apart. :-P

    General Commentthis is the wrong song name. it is called "The Sun, The Moon, The Earth, And The Rain" and it is off the album called Divinity Destroyed (EP)

    General Commenthow can it be the wrong song name? i got it directly off the band's website. and i own the album.

    and whats with everyone thinking its like... jesus... though i think you have a small idea about it, i just thought it was a fan of the band = follower of jesus. and jesus = band. that was my interpretation, since at one show the lead singer, mark ward, said he doesn't like playing the song or writing it, even broke into tears when he did it live. a song about jesus and a roman soldier wouldn't have such an emotional impact on the lead singer.
