Poetry written in a tongue that only you and I can read
We forget the world with one prolonged embrace

Marching to the beat of a near end song
Your crystal facade cracks quietly

With the legend of the mantis still fresh in my mind
I continue trying to give you the key
but your foot's already in the door

One hand on the phone
The other on a blank picture frame
Left alone to remember all the wonderful memories we never had together
There were no memories for us to have

Move your hair from your face and look me in the eyes

With the legend of the mantis still fresh in my mind
I continue trying to give you the key
but your foot's already in the door

Forced to forget tomorrow
Each breath becomes more precious than the last
Drastic weather changes make me tired
Hopefully the worst has passed me now

Flawlessly gorgeous you looked in that dress
Your intentions were more fair than your skin

It hurts to smile when your indecisive ways
freeze my emotionless expressions

Marching to the beat of a near end song
your crystal facade cracks quietly

With the legend of the mantis still fresh in my mind
I continue trying to give you the key
but your foot's already in the door

Flawlessly gorgeous you looked in that dress
your intentions were more fair than your skin

Over and over again, I seem to lose my mind
Like a leaf in the wind of the most atrocious of hurricanes
Carelessly and directionless it floats away
Goodbye

    General CommentFirst off, if Matt wrote these lyrics.. I want to confront him with great gratitude for piecing these songs together. You had my devotion to sit there and pick apart each on of Winter Solstice's songs deep in thought through each line of every song.. I think winter solstice is the best christian metal band and most of their lyrics are deep and understanding to me and I just wanted to say that's why I honestly love this band like I love no other (because there poems are nicely put).
    Wait that's just the beginning.. it makes it even more fitting to listen to the rest of the guys KILLING it on their instruments; they hit EVERY note PERFECTLY, and when you have some alarming lyrics to go with that.. It's "beyond words"..

    This is what I think the song is about:

    Hes saying goodbye to someone that has no understanding in what is right in true love or having her understand that he truly loves her.. (Christians look to god as given us right views on things and believing in what's right and that's why we pray for him to understand us when we need someones generosity in listening to us. In this song it shows just that with "With the legend of the mantis still fresh in my mind I continue trying to give you the key but your foot's already in the door". In those three lines Matt's telling us; With the prayers still fresh in his mind he continues to try and make her understand but she's always got her comment to throw in ahead of him without any hesitation to listen to what he believes will help them in the long run.) No matter how he got got the opposed (his girlfriend or) to believe something in not being right because of mistakes people make. But we always have that keen belief in knowing what we should do when we make a mistake (better it by explaining why we made that mistake or try not to let it happen again by knowing it was a mistake.).. when god answers our prayers, it's nothing but a moment of realization.. that's what you need to focus on.. knowing what's right and realizing you should do it because of that blindly stated FACT in every one of their songs.
    Because "It's just better".

    I know.. it's pretty long.. but i just wanted to throw some other random stuff in there that might help understand "What this song mean's to me".
