"Miro" as written by Marc Edwin Allen, Nathan Barcalow, Derek Doherty, Alejandro M. Linares and Randy Strohmeyer....
Slumber has erased me.
Comfort is only skin deep.
A dirty mirror is reason.
To digest, correct in medicine.

I burned up, I burned up
Ablaze upon re-entry, slow down
I woke up, I woke up
Face down along the shoreline, paradise is mine.

Shadows, and living trees,
Reach out to embrace me.
This place here isn't where we are.
He carries dead weight with his fist.

I burned up, I burned
Ablaze upon re-entry, slow down
I woke up, I woke up
Face down along the shoreline, paradise is mine.

You can take it with you, You can take it with you.
Frame by frame we begin to change skeletons and robot brains.
She found a book that's writes itself, that plays it all upon a stage,
Over and over again, over and over again,
Where is the end?

    General Commenti don't know if anyone has read the Ender's Game series, but there is a character named Miro in the later books who goes through a lot of the same scenarios as in the song.

    *******************************
    Slumber has ereased me
    Comfort is only skin deep
    A dirty mirror reveals reason
    To digest corrective medicine

    I burned up x2
    Ablaze upon re-entry
    Slow down
    I woke up x2
    Face down along the shoreline
    Paradise is mine

    Shadows and living trees
    Reach out to embrace me
    This place, here, is where we don't exist
    He carries dead weight with his fist

    I burned up x2
    Face down along the shoreline
    Paradise is mine

    You can't take it with you x2
    Frame by frame we begin to change
    Skeletons and robot brains
    She found a book that writes itself
    That plays it all upon a stage
    Over and over again x2
    Where is the end?

    I feel like this song hovers around the topic of depression and some sort of dissatisfaction with self. I don't want to say that it has to do with drug use, but I think it talks about some kind of amphetamine usage to come back into "paradise", lives your life for you, and it's showcased (obvious). Basically plagued with paranoia and living, while, not really living at all. Not existing. Past and present coexisting simultaneously, here amongst the dead, like a direct parallel between life and death. Somewhere in-between with physical bearing, but empty, and heavy...weird. In the escape, I believe paradise is a temporary retreat, through a single dose. Unending. I dunno, just how it hit me, great song though, I like the new shift in sound. Sorry about the rant, made sense to me though. Oh well, cheerio minions...

    General CommentI'm kind of with pariah919, that perhaps it's something drug related..?

    "Comfort Is Only Skin Deep" might be some reference to self harm, caused by sadness, or paranoia from the drugs, and the burning up could be a side effect of the drugs, or some sort of fever, and the paradise is some sort of hallucination, maybe..?

    Just my thoughts.

    General Comment"Frame by frame we begin to change
    Skeletons with robot brains"

    That line always stood out to me. I think it's sort of a rejection of the traditional idea of "growing up." Maybe someone who isn't quite an adult yet but will be in a few years (maybe around 18, my age), notices, in all the adults around them, that as people become more "mature" and place more value in being stable, they lose a lot of their passion, and become hollowed out and automated. They use the analogy of skeletons with robot brains to describe these people, and reject the series of slow changes that leads to a conventional adulthood, choosing to remain passionate, idealistic, and youthful.

    Of course, there's probably a whole other set of meanings in this song. I think "comfort is only skin deep" is about how we reassure ourselves, but we can never really escape thoughts of things like death, nuclear war, if we have souls, the end of the world... All that really deep, dark primal stuff.
