Sensations, curse me and my ways
Force-feed me blind on empty days

Today, my faith was lost again
A grave was dug to mourn its loss
And in this grave I keep my friends
Loneliness, impure urges
And the pain that only I can bring

A mouthful of dust and guilt
A season of haste and wilt

And to this day I'll search for you
To nurse and clean
My mouthful of dust and guilt

Come forever
Come blindness
Come bringing forth
The pain of logic and reason
That hides in here
And for my dreams I'll pay dearly
Forfeit my rights to see clearly
Your flaws, my flaws
In all of our ways

    General CommentSimple: the speaker has lost his faith and, thus, has also lost his friends and family. Hence, the "dust and guilt".

    -The person wants to not attend to real world things.
    -He instead wants to drown his problems by seeking distractions (drugs, alcohol, religion itself etc)

    "Today, my faith was lost again
    A grave was dug to mourn its loss"
    -He loses faith in the real world
    "And in this grave I keep my friends"
    -Hes pushing away support, willing to escape his problems
    "Loneliness, impure urges
    And the pain that only I can bring"
    -Hes built a solitude world for himself in order to reach his 'deity'

    "A mouthful of dust and guilt
    A season of haste and wilt"
    -Hes guilty of leaving his problems (or whatever), but desperate to eliminate them
    "And to this day I'll search for you
    To nurse and clean
    My mouthful of dust and guilt"
    -His deity can only deny real problems

    "Come forever
    Come blindness
    Come bringing forth
    The pain of logic and reason
    That hides in here"
    -He wishes to see the reality again by accepting the truth
    "And for my dreams I'll pay dearly
    Forfeit my rights to see clearly"
    -By depriving his religion, he will be able to tend to the real world again
    "Your flaws, my flaws
    In all of our ways"
    -He realizes the real world and himself are irrational beings, religion and reason dont seem to make sense

    By that I assume the song was directed mainly towards escapism (drugs, religion, solitude) and then trying to deal with the world again and fall back into old habits. So maybe addiction? Keshik seems to have it right but this song could apply to anything i spose. its a good song.
