There's a thief on a summer's night
Across an ocean
Who sees another's life fading away

And of this life he writes
Without emotion
Then pushes it from sight
Somewhere faraway
To a distant land
Every tear betrayed
And never makes
And never makes
And never makes
And never makes a stand
Makes a stand
Lord there's something wrong
Makes a stand

Could a star's forgotten light
A child's devotion
Embrace eternal night
In shallow graves

As we watch from distant heights
No breath or motion
Still every ghost must haunt in its own way
Sleep beneath my dreams
Safe within my hands
Where i never under
Never under
Never understand

Lord there's something wrong

No one remembers
No one denies
No one asks questions
No one replies

Here nothing enters
Nothing departs
Here nothing's ended
If nothing starts

In your life could you carry on
Could you never think about it
Till in time you start to doubt it

Then you close your eyes
Is it really gone
How in truth can you defend her
If you're really not remembering

No regrets
If you just forget
If a memory is lenient
You can find it most convenient
So you let it fade
Till it's very vague
Just a silhouette of shadows
But the shadows are still lingering

Still i hold you there
With your endless stare

I'm too old to be living this
Lived to long to be given this
Can our god be forgiving this

I had a light that shined
Across my mind
Rarely see it any more

Now it is mostly dark
Accept for sparks
Can't remember what they're for

I am the morphine child
The dream defiled
The never ending metaphor
I am the wizard oz
Result and cause
Never look behind that door

Cantations
Cantations
Cantations
Cantations

Never listen to the crowd before me
Never listen to the self ordained
Never really wanted to believe it any way

Time is fading
Night is calling
I am on my way

Turn around turn around
Turn around turn around

Time is fading
Night is calling
I am on my ...

    My InterpretationThis is a song about giving up on life. Its a song about falling back into the haze of unfeeling, living as if though on morphine. The once high expectations the singer had for his life have been shattered, and he will accept what comes to him without struggling cause he cant be hurt anymore than he already is.

    I had a light that shined, across my mind,
    Rarely see it anymore

    Now its mostly dark, except for sparks,
    Cant remember what they're for.

    These lyrics represent the hopes and dreams the singer once held for himself and the world around him. Pain and disappointment have dulled them, faded them to mere sparks, their meaning forgotten.

    Here nothing enters, nothing departs.
    Nothing is ended, if nothing starts.

    These lyrics are what call to me most of all. Past experiences have burned so much, that its easier to sit back and let life go by than to participate. You cant suffer the pain of disappointment or heartbreak if you dont make an effort or allow love into your life.

    No regrets
    If you just forget
    If a memory is lenient
    You can find it most convenient
    So you let it fade
    Till it's very vague
    Just a silhouette of shadows
    But the shadows are still lingering

    And this is the verse that made it all clear to me. Dont carry the painful memories. Take the metaphorical (or literal) morphine and let the pain be dulled, let it go and fade into memories. But no matter how much you try to ignore it, while it may not be on the forefront of your mind, its there. It will always be there.

    Sounds awesome for such a depressing song though :P
