Mornings gone echoes of dawn
Shaking my soul
All but done - Delirium
The rain with the cold
With nowhere to go

Love destroyed this body figureheads and lies
Have I survived

Nowhere to go

We've been brought here for a reason
Be it fate or internal treason
Souls will be saved or mutiny's waged
As we plead for something to believe in

Ringing doubt full of ways out
Of something to hold
I erode fade like cologne
Shrink inside as I depart the throne
With nowhere to go
One by one 'till we are all alone
Nowhere to go

I've destroyed this body figureheads and lies
Have I survived breathe yet I can feel the knife
Widening this great divide confession of a fallen king
I'd do almost anything die to be your everything

If I could end this waking dream
Escape through a scream
And feel I'd won some way
Wade through this dark decay
Welcome an early grave
And put my heart away
To start another game
It's getting old
With nowhere to go

Hollow hides from life's embrace
Echoes siren my displace
My patience lies beside my faith
Denial behind this painted face

All alone more than you'll know
One by one 'till we are all alone
With nowhere to go
Shrink inside as I depart the throne
Nowhere to go
One by one 'till we are all alone
Nowhere to go

Love destroyed this body figureheads and lies
Have I survived
Survive

There's nothing left to lose
Do what we have to do
What do we have to prove to you
There's nothing left to lose
Nowhere to go

    General CommentWhen i hear this song i picture someone who tried to kill themselves (possibly over a girl) but survived through it. They laying on the floor asking themselves..
    "love destroyed this body...have i survived??"

    I remember going to a concert well before XIII was released, JMann said they had wrote a slow song for everyone to dance to, and asked for everyone to grab a partner and dance.....and then they played this song

    General Commentinteresting interpretation. i never thought of it like that. i personally think it's about someone who has nothing to look forward to in life and has lost all will to live the rest of his life. it's sort of a depressing song but i love it anyway. i don't live my life off of song lyrics. lol.

    General CommentIts actually "I erode, Faith like cologne." Mornings gone echoes of dawn= The dawn of a new understanding. He has lost his faith. The "emotional" part of the song is talking about being tired of struggling with his faith constantly. He has lost the love of a woman, but the love of his GOD.

    General CommentIt is indeed "Fade like cologne". Although the song is about faith. The whole "Ringing doubt full of ways out
    Of something to hold ". It was about a relationship it would of been "someone to hold".

    "We've been brought here for a reason
    Be it fate or internal treason
    Souls will be saved or mutiny's waged
    As we plead for something to believe in "

    This stanza alone makes it seem like i about religion.

    General CommentAnd put my heart away
    To start another game
    It's getting old
    With nowhere to go


    I think it is about a break up I mean not completely, it is about a guy who is really depressed and sees no reason to go on anymore but he's like that because of relationships. It seems he is trying to move on though....When he says "to start another game, its getting old" it makes me think that maybe he's talking about getting into another relationship. But fuck I could be completely off but I don't care because I love this song and I've had my heart broken alot so my interpretation works for me....ya know.....

    General CommentStart once again from the collapsed heart that fell from your chest. You need to keep living, regardless of every setback, you can't stop for something simple. Only death can stop you, even then, your legend lives on forever.

    General CommentI think that this song as many meanings and there is really no one way to explain it...I think the main meaning of the song is that you start a new day everyday; but still you do the same thing because you know nothing else that you can do...you want to change what you are doing (being it a relationship or a religion), but you just can't...and you live your whole life in denial just to make other people happy...so I think the song is trying to tell you too live like you want to live

    General CommentI think that is song has many meanings but only one simple underlying meaning...this song is about waking up everyday and doing the same thing (that thing being a relationship, religion, or other things) over and over again...and that you find out the very same things that make you love what you do; also in time the very same things you hate about it...but you keep doing it everyday because it makes the people around you happy; so you live your life in denial...but thats just what I think
