Some kind of evidence,
some kind of reason
why I can't find a way
to begin my life.

(Somewhere in this dying day
if I can only find a way for my escape.
I find it hard to concentrate
with all my past mistakes.)

To begin my life.

(I can't feel my faith,
can't recall my crime.
I think I sealed my fate.
Along the way, I may have lost my mind.
I guess we're all
damaged in our own way,
alone in our own way.
Distant headlights, desolate highway.
I can't feel my faith,
can't recall my crime.
I think I sealed my fate.
Along the way I may have lost my mind.
I guess we're all
damaged in our own way,
alone in our own way.
Distant headlights, desolate highway.)

Sun doesn't rise at all.
Who knows how far I'll fall?
Sun doesn't rise at all.
Who knows how far I'll fall?

With eyes wide open
(I can't recall my crime,
I think I sealed my fate)
I can watch my world evolve.
(alone in our own way,
I think I sealed my fate)
Nothing left to die for.
(Can't recall my crime,
I think I sealed my fate)
Thoughts inside can make me crawl.
(I think I sealed my fate)
Make me drop down on my knees.
Break me down until I question me.
Darkness can't destroy my drive.

Sun doesn't rise at all.
Who knows how far I'll fall?
Sun doesn't rise at all.
Welcome my downfall.

Sun doesn't rise at all.

(Somewhere in this dying day
as I plan my great escape
I find it hard to concentrate
while you maintain control.
I fold and falter, empty alter.
All I gave I pray, it makes me whole.
I think the brink's around the corner.
There's an error in my soul.

I can't feel my faith,
can't recall my crime.
I think I sealed my fate
Along the way I may have lost my mind.
I guess we're all
damaged in our own way,
alone in our own way.
Distant headlights, desolate highway!)

Sun doesn't rise at all.
Who knows how far I'll fall?
Sun doesn't rise at all.
Who knows how far I'll fall?

(I can't feel my faith.
Can't recall my crime...
Damaged in our own way,
alone in our own way.
Desolate highway.)

    General CommentSometimes we have to break down in order to realize again who are so we can progress.

    Every day we're faced with new problems, no matter how far you get, there will be more obstacles ahead of you. Just when you think you're done, in comes a new situation for you to deal with, just like the day before.

    It's like the sun didn't even rise, cause you're right back where you started.
    Who knows how far you'll fall tomorrow.

    Also being faced with problems is what makes us human, you gain experience and knowledge from everything you go through in life.

    "Welcome my downfall"

    At least that's what I get from it.

    General CommentTo me this song is about him searching for his faith. He doesnt feel like it is right that he cant find it. He feels like maybe hes done something wrong to seal his fate. He has no faith and its as if the sun never rises for him, and as if his life hasnt even begun yet. He cant see that light so hes stuck in darkness but he still strives to acquire that distant light. But whenever he looks at religion or any organized faith its just empty. There is no answers there. So he continues to struggle falling deeper into his darkness questioning himself and his life and even his soul.

    To me anyways...

    General CommentSounds like they're talking about someone who's been in jail for a very long time, or somewhere along those lines. "I can't recall my crime"
    Somethings holding this guy back from starting life again, and i think it's bars.
    And well how prison is dark and cold; the sun doesn't rise "damaged in our own way, alone in our own way. Distant headlights, desolate highway".

    Anyways, it's just my way of interpreting it.

    General Commenta song about a post apocalyptic world where all man follow the christian god and he decided to feel a different way and was banished for it and is forced to live with being alone it seems like the sun will never rise again because he'll never find another human willing to talk to him in his entire life

    do not condemn me for i am insane

    General CommentI agree with king nothing on this one. Its like just as he feels hes able to "begin his life" things turn on him and its like hes back at the beginning.

    General CommentOk, who is the kickass voice that says this line

    > I can't feel my faith,
    can't recall my crime.
    I think I sealed my fate along the way,
    I may have lost my mind.
    I guess we're all
    damaged in our own way,
    alone in our own way.
    Distant headlights, desolate highway.
    I can't feel my faith,
    can't recall my crime.
    I think I sealed my fate along the way,
    I may have lost my mind.
    I guess we're all
    damaged in our own way,
    alone in our own way.
    Distant headlights, desolate highway.

    General Commenthuh... i thought it was one of the original guys - thanks for the info, hatred666

    Damn... Singing that chorus must take a lot of effort...
    I-I-I-I can't feel my faith,
    can't recall my crime.
    I think I sealed my fate along the way,
    I may have lost my mind.
    I guess we're all
    damaged in our own way,
    alone in our own way.
    Distant headlights, desolate highway.
