I've been searching some answers concealed in my heart
The spirit within
I've been hunting those secrets with my deepest bottle
But have found none
So I need a deeper dive:
With the screws on my lips
I am falling down
Into the king's sea
Feel the rope winding in me
And feel the touch
Of oblivion
Now I'm floating
There is no way out, diving deeper down
In my memories
All the losses and all the minor joys
With affectation
This rope around me tightens again
And I wonder who I really am
Who I really am?
The third day, the magical
A way to believe I'm born again
The third day, the magical
A way to believe I'm born again
Waves of unconsciousness lulling me to sleep
In my own whirlpool
And the fear of sobering up
Is lurking around
But the rope around me tightens again
And I wonder who I really am
Who I really am?
The third day, the magical
A way to believe I'm born again
The third day, the magical
A way to believe I'm born again

    General CommentWell it seems like it's about alcoholism. Anyone know what the rope is all about?

    "Into the king's sea
    Feel the rope winding in me"

    and

    "With affectation
    This rope around me tightens again"

    General Commentgoing off the acloholism theory, the rope could be the hold that his affliction has over him.

    The song could also have to do with an identity crisis.
    "searching some answers concealed in my heart", "who I really am?", "a way to believe I'm born again".

    General CommentSeconding the alcoholism/ other addiction theory, "the third day, the magical" could mean the three day hump that most people go over when trying to quit smoking, drinking etc. where if you make it past the third day, you can make it longer.

    General CommentIt might be about alcoholism, but I don't think he's trying to sober up. Perhaps a three day drinking binge?

    General CommentI have to agree with elvin wizard-"hunting those secrets with my deepest bottle" suggests drinking, "the touch
    Of oblivion" could refer to being totally smashed. As well as this alcohol removes your inhibitions and lets people see "who you really are"

    General Comment--I completely agree with the alcoholism theory....i also believe that there could be some religious meaning to the song.
    Basically i think "the third day, the magical - a way to believe im born again" is representing a person who suffers through this addiction throughout life yes, but in this representation starting on a friday night.
    Maybe this continues over into saturday as well, either with more drinking or even just recovering from the damage from the previous night.
    Now, where the religious reference is obvious. "the third day" = sunday(church). "The magical - a way to believe im born again" = showing how many people believe they can just go to church and magically be saved or born again every single week!--

    Other religious references:
    "ive been searching some answers concealed in my heart, the spirit within" = searching for sobriety and hoping that it is within him somewhere. And with the help of god(spirit)he will find it.

    "with the screws on my lips, i am falling down into the kings sea" = not being able to open his mouth or speak up to confess his sins so he is falling into hell.

    Other alcoholism references:
    "ive been hunting those secrets with my deepest bottle, but have found none." = turning to alcohol again for guidance but getting nowhere.

    "feel the touch of oblivion, and now im floating" = feeling drunk.

    "this rope around me tightens again, and i wonder who i really am" = the rope is representing his addiction which is pulling him back in making him wonder if he is the good person he hopes and tries to be or if he is just doomed to being an addict forever.

    Im not quite sure yet about the rope winding in me?
