Below my solitude I abstain.
Above my bitterness I grace the lie.
Sinking alone I severed the chord, drifting into the wide.
It lies below this tragedy, this suffering.
Life's blood flows out of me.
The deeper I sink the more life flows out of me.
Drifting towards the light I see torn from my home to be.
Hook clawing at my flesh guiding me through my journey.
Drowning in a see of rusting faith.
Killing your dreams with bleeding mistakes.
A part of her dies too.

    General Commentit reminds me of when you cut the umbilical cord of a baby... i think it's like that for him - having to cut physical, mental etc ties with this person. Just like the umbilical cord, it dies.

    General CommentThis song is about going from a complete loss of hope to a complete lack of emotion.
