A wind carries your scent
To those who will find you out
A storm forces you down
To seek shelter from the rain

Your trail leads to a mine of cyanide and gold
A free falling darkness leads you to yourself

I am low to the ground again
I have the future bearing on down
I run with the starlight to the end
The tail of the echo subsides

(Now oath breaker sinks low x2)

So I crawl through the hailstones
My eyes fixed on my return

(Now oath breaker sinks low x2)

Time brings them all home
To the eye of every storm

    General CommentI'm amazed nobody else has commented this amazing song; it is my favorite song of all time with some of the best lyrics ever. For me, it is about death, the "eye of every storm" being the peace we find in death, and the storm itself being the chaos and stress of life. When I die, I want "Time will bring me home to the eye of every storm" on my tombstone.

    General CommentI think this song is about depression and the urge to suicide...but realizing that you can fight through it with the power of determination and striving to live as a human being.

    "I am low to the ground again" = depression.

    "I have the future bearing on down" = the fact that you're future is ahead of you, and if you kill yourself, your future is erased. You cannot let that happen, so you "run with the starlight to the end" = determination and will to live as a human and the idea that the depression and suicidal urges will fade within time.

    My InterpretationI feel like this is about accepting death - since it is inevitable - and how small we all are after all. Death define us and unite us as human beings. I don't see this as a, necessarily, negative song, though.

    This record and Scott Kelly's solo stuff really helped me overcome/accept my grandfather's kind of sudden death, even-though I fail to understand most of his lyrics.
