"I Die in Degrees" as written by and Oliver Herbert Michael Bartlett....
I'd follow endlessly to live the life I've seen
Now every passing moment you die but one degree

Shall I relinquish my integrity
Thereby ensuring that I'll remain unclean

Until my days filled with not untrust and fear
I'll not make one vow to which I won't adhere

I didn't want it this way
But I've never wanted to stay
My life take not for granted yet
Nothings changed in me
The search for true perfection
Will lead me endlessly

    General CommentThe song meaning to me is about...
    Regret and looking back upon something and wondering if it could ever be different.
    "Shall I relinquish my integrity thereby ensuring that I'll remain unclean"

    It makes a lot of sense when i think about it this way.

    I also think a lot of pride ends up getting in the way of wanting to change the things that have happened.
    "I didn't want it this way but I've never wanted to stay"
    Wanting to change something without changing the path i follow, for if i deteriorate i will not be following the path i chose.

    It makes sense when you look at the rest of the album.
    I think Phil was mentioning problems about his Christianity and his faith.
