As her insides are screaming let me out
She speaks as if someone's in the room with her
(Someone sits quietly on the ceiling tile)
Still facing the corner with her eyes gouged out
These tears of blood fall, for blood is all she's crying out

Her Heart beats on
She's just not, giving up yet
Though blinded by the devil's touch
She rises above him

(She rises above)

She races towards the light
Her heart beats on
(She stares death straight in the face, heart beats on)
These tears of blood fall, for blood is all she's crying out

As he cuts into her chest
Her Heart Beats on
She's just not giving up yet
Though blinded by the devil's touch
She rises above him
(Rise above)
She floats towards the light
The darkness recedes
(Let me out, let me live again)
In this most desperate hour (she cries)
Most desperate hour

In this crowded room
In this crowded room
In this crowded room
With an empty view
In this crowded room

Save your goodbyes, we all know it's not the end
Save your goodbyes, we all know it's not the end
Save your goodbyes, we all know it's not the end
Save your goodbyes, we all know it's not the end

    General CommentIt actually sounds like they wrote about a case of demonic possession back in the 1960's/70's. The girl in question possessed by demonic forces was named Anneliese Michel. And after her death from starvation(because these Satanic forces wouldn't allow her to eat), her parents were speaking with a Carmelite nun who said that she received a message from Anneliese saying that she had not decomposed. And during her exorcism, the devils kept saying the room was too crowded because of all the heavenly countenances present in the room. Bringing meaning to pretty much all of the lyrics.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song of all times, by my favorite band. I cannot beliave that no one has commented on it, so i will do the pleassure of doing so now. What this song means to me is, He was in a relationship with this girl and she was bad to him, so now he is torturing her and now she wants to be nice to him and all that bullshit. this is a very good song, there ep is awesome buy it now!

    General CommentUm...I just thought it was pretty straightforward about a lady who refuses to die. "She speaks as if someone's in the room with her" means she's praying for Jesus to relieve her pain. And she just keeps trusting in Him (running towards the light) and in the end He pulls her through (save your goodbyes, we all know its not the end). Great song.

    General CommentI think it might be even easier and less religious than that. From most of their lyrics I get a feeling that they are heavily inspired by horror films. "I Am the Wind..." brings a vision of Night of the Living dead, where this song brings to mind a scene from Hostel (though it may be the worst movie ever). It brings to mind the recent slew of gore filled horror movies that have come by recently. She speaks as if someone's in the room with her because her eyes are gauged out and can't tell if there really is someone there. She hears a noise in the room and calls out for someone to help her but she doesn't know if it's help or the sick serial killer who is doing this to her. She keeps struggling on despite the intense torture this killer is putting her through. She keeps telling herself not to say her goodbyes yet because, like all good horror movies, the heroine will eventually get out of this situation

    General Commenti think this song is an absolute killer. probably my most listened to song.
    i don't really think about the morels within the song, but all of your opinions are true in senses.
    i feel this song is very metaphorical, maybe "the dying lady" isn't actually dying, but she feels as if she's dying because of broken love. and the devils touch is the guy who has broken her heart.
    but hey, maybe the song could just be about some woman who's dying with gouged out eyes...
    we'll never know, but it's a sterling song, love it.
