The darkness surrounds you. The darkness shrouds everything. Movement is apparent and the movement is dangerous. All around the walls are crushing, looming as if to threaten collapse. But this is the home, the dark, the warmth. This is still home, and you know you can't leave. So welcome the terrible weight of failure and our own arrogance. It hangs heavy in the air, with the smoke and the fire we create (there is no safe place here). Resign yourself to this, resign yourself to the dark. So never sleep too deeply, but most importantly, never get caught. None of us belong here in the darkness but it seems as if we have no choice. Our path was chosen for us and now there is no way out. But nobody feels trapped, as we become accustomed to this night with no end, and no end in sight.

    General CommentI think that the lyrics feel very claustrophobic and brings a feeling of hopelessness. It could be about life, and the everlasting question of what is the meaning of life, that it's all just the same and that you have no choice but to face the facts.

    General Commenti think this song, to me, is about a relationship. it represents how comfortable you can become with someone and how there is a fear of change or letting that person go. also, how you can get trapped into a relationship with a false sense of security.

    General CommentIts basically about someone consumed with the grief and despair of life but instead of letting that fear and sadness slowly kill you, you eventually embrace those feelings and in a weird way it actually feels good.
