I see the landscape before me
So beautiful it makes me smile
Those whispering sounds in silence
Reaching for me, trying to warn me...once again.

Wake up to sense the violence
Right and wrong, clear and strong
Whispering sounds in the darkness
'The time will come to undo what you have done...'

'What if the seas can't save you
From the fires of this world...
You left no trees to keep you
on the surface, when the day comes...'

'The push that you gave derailed me
...on my knees, broken seals
Your vagary led to the silence...'
...I can't hear you.

'Please cast the die
Paint the horizon with the right shade of red
When the oceans rise
Mother cleans the slate and the cradle becomes
your grave...'

'What if the seas can't save you
From the fires of this world...
You left no trees to keep you
on the surface, the oceans rise...'

Under the sky...
we create our future
Towards the end we tend to forget
Is world such a bad place
Why are we wrecking the sphere...

Four seasons turn into two,
Two less seats in the ancient guild
The bond is now obsolete...
You gave us the roots and the wings,
the more you gave, the more we parted from you.
This day seems so infinite
We never learned to be afraid...

Pray no, you should not pray now
Must believe in yourself
All the choices you make
Will define you in the end
Truly, we're a lost cause
A tiny rhymless word
In the poem of time

What if the seas can't save you
From the fires of this world...
You left no trees to help you
back to surface, when the oceans rise...

    General CommentWell, everything is said clearly...
    "'Please cast the die" --> "The time will come to undo what you have done..."
    "Is world such a bad place?" -- "We never learned to be afraid..."
    This song has a real message in it, a warning... Like, 'Hey, wake up! Maybe it's not too late, maybe we can still change everything and repair our mistakes...'
    What is said in this song reflects our reality, exactly the way it is... We are negligent, we should take care of our planet...but we dont' want to see the end is coming... The temperature is getting hotter, the seas higher, we cut the trees, we pollute... We are killing our planet, and so our future, because we destroy everything we need for us to survive...
    This song is beautiful... It might open your eyes before it's too late... Things have to change :S

    General CommentThis is indeed about how we ruin our world, and that if we don't do anything soon I'll be lost.

    My Interpretation"I see the landscape before me
    So beautiful it makes me smile
    Those whispering sounds in silence
    Reaching for me, trying to warn me...once again."
    -The narrator is looking out onto the land admiring it's beauty, and while doing this a little nagging voice in his mind keeps whispering to him warning him that if something isn't done it will all be gone.

    "Wake up to sense the violence
    Right and wrong, clear and strong
    Whispering sounds in the darkness
    'The time will come to undo what you have done...'"
    -I think this is what the voice is telling him, basically saying wake up to what's happening and there will be a time that humanity has to undo what it's done or it will be too late.

    "'What if the seas can't save you
    From the fires of this world...
    You left no trees to keep you
    on the surface, when the day comes...'"
    -This is the voice still, basically saying 'What if there are no trees left to shade you, and the seas won't be able to cool you.'

    "'The push that you gave derailed me
    ...on my knees, broken seals
    Your vagary led to the silence...'
    ...I can't hear you."
    -Not sure.

    "'Please cast the die
    Paint the horizon with the right shade of red
    When the oceans rise
    Mother cleans the slate and the cradle becomes
    your grave...'"
    -I think Mother is referring to Mother Earth. Though the rest I don't exactly get.

    "Under the sky...
    we create our future
    Towards the end we tend to forget
    Is world such a bad place
    Why are we wrecking the sphere..."
    -We're creating a future we don't think about nearly enough, and the narrator is asking why we are ruining our planet.

    "Four seasons turn into two,
    Two less seats in the ancient guild
    The bond is now obsolete...
    You gave us the roots and the wings,
    the more you gave, the more we parted from you.
    This day seems so infinite
    We never learned to be afraid..."
    -Four seasons turning into two is saying that the climate will go to extremes, and all that will be left of the seasons is searing heat, and freezing cold. The more the world gave us, the more we abused it.

    "Pray no, you should not pray now
    Must believe in yourself
    All the choices you make
    Will define you in the end
    Truly, we're a lost cause
    A tiny rhymless word
    In the poem of time"
    -Instead of praying to be saved from the fate of the world, we have to believe in ourselves, and the choices we make.
