In light of my present mess
In light of my mental weather's turn
In light of all the crash and burn
I'll open my mind as wide as ever

The lie behind the lesson
The soul in the open well
It might have been fate
It might have been fortune
It might have been wine and a mellow head

I'm finding my way, finding the words
One body breaking
Someone come and rise up
Rise like the sun
If I am no one
Somebody save me
Someone come and rise up

Pride doesn't own me now
But know that at times life kind of hurts
And know that I will live and learn
So more than survive, I will endeavour

The mind behind the message
Alone on an ocean swell
It might have been grace
It might have been gorgeous
It might have been why I've settled in

A helpless man, a held out hand
Defining images that flow through my hope's
Surrender
The broken moments and pointing fingers
The closing of open minds
I might have been delayed
I might have been delirious
I might have been otherwise
Taking hammer blows like an animal
For others
So heavy was my weight

    General CommentAwesome song, here's what I think

    Verse 1 - May mean that this person is having a hard time in life and in deciding certain things.

    Verse 2 - May mean that this person does not have much luck in finding his way in life.

    Verse 3 - May mean this person is waiting for a savior to come and save him from whatever it is this person is having trouble with.

    Verse 4 - This person is probably talking about how they learned their lesson and instead of trying to survive they will start a new journey and try life over again.

    Verse 5 - They have finally found the path they were destined for and have now decided to settle in.

    Verse 6 - This person is talking about how their old life was hard and every time they did something nice for someone they were beaten down and thrown away. But now when they respond with help people now respect them
