When Darkness will reign and blind us all
Allegiance will blind us if we do not fall

We cannot tell when morning comes
Is there a choice to live another day?
It’s hard to find a new direction in your fragile life

The precious time of your existence is now to come
Don’t throw your life away by cheating time
Sugared Placebos only fool your mind

Now I want the water to wash away all my sins
The wind to blow away my thoughts without meaning
The fire to burn away my thickened skin

Novas portas pandimus

What is the space, the type of dance?
I cannot tell which steps I have to take
I’d like to leave, just run away
My feet are tangled up

So hard to face the pace of the clock
What do you think; will it ever stop?
So, will I fall and not get up?
I take it all in stride

Everything has a reason for its happening
Can’t you tell it’s your own spell and
Everyone has to dance his dance like anyone
Can’t break free of destiny

We should open new doors
And close the ones that we’ve left behind

Novas portas pandimus, et post nos occludimus
Novas portas pandimus et post nos occludimus

    General CommentThis song means to me that we must live our lives doing the best that we can always,in everything that we do.

    I´ll try to explain it verse by verse.

    When Darkness will reign and blind us all(our greed makes us destroy everything in our way)
    Allegiance will blind us if we do not fall(and face the reality)

    We cannot tell when morning comes
    Is there a choice to live another day?
    It’s hard to find a new direction in your fragile life(This three verses means to me that somethings in life cannot be changed and you must accept it at once to don´t keep suffering because of them)

    The precious time of your existence is now to come(your life will have an end even if don´t want it to)
    Don’t throw your life away by cheating time(having argues for bullshit,doing drugs and this kind of things)
    Sugared Placebos only fool your mind(for me this are the things that keep you away from the reality such as watching too much TV or playing too much videogames... =x )

    Now I want the water to wash away all my sins( aks for God,The Source or whatever you may believe to guide and purify you)
    The wind to blow away my thoughts without meaning(the same of the last verse)
    The fire to burn away my thickened skin(ask Him to take away all the regrets and the griefs you may have in you heart and soul so you can have a better life)

    Novas portas pandimus(latin,it means we should open new doors, we should forget the bad things of the past and continue living waiting for goos things to happen)

    What is the space, the type of dance?(no one really knows what is life)
    I cannot tell which steps I have to take(and no one can tell you how to live your own life)
    I’d like to leave, just run away(and you can´t get away from it,only if you kill yourself but if you´re dead so it´s not life anymore... lol )
    My feet are tangled up(you can´t just walk away)

    So hard to face the pace of the clock(you will get old my friend and you will die,face it)
    What do you think; will it ever stop?(more questions about what is life)
    So, will I fall and not get up?
    I take it all in stride(this two verses wotk together,we try to understand life too quickly and so we pass trough it without really knowing it´s meaning)

    Everything has a reason for its happening(you´re not alone my friend,there´s someone or something bigger and stronger than you if even you don´t believe it....)
    Can’t you tell it’s your own spell and(you can´t fully control your life)
    Everyone has to dance his dance like anyone(everyone must live as they think it´s better for them as long as it doesn´t make other people suffer)
    Can’t break free of destiny(anyone can´t, so push yourself and don´t be an anyone be someone and be whatever you want to be)

    We should open new doors(we should look for good things now)
    And close the ones that we’ve left behind(and forget the bad things from the past)

    Novas portas pandimus, et post nos occludimus(in latin it has the same meaning of the above verses)
    Novas portas pandimus et post nos occludimus

    Thanks for reading it...^^

    General CommentAs I listen to the first part of the song, I think it's about someone or the singer struggling with depression and Saying that medicine would screw up your mind. She did mention a few times about if life is really worth living and then the chorus is saying that she wants everything to wash away so she could continue on with life with no pressure. I actually don't know about the rest. I tried
