    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG!!! Whenever I hear it I must listen to it, like 3 more times before doing anything else. I love how it's sort of techno mixed with rock and great piano. The rain thing gets to me sometimes, but the piano piece is awesome. The part at the end is really soothing, and a great ending, though I think they could have added vocals on that part.

    General CommentThis probably sounds off the wall to a lot of people, but..

    for me and some other people with bipolar disorder or borderline personality disorder that I've spoken to, it represents the cycle of our manic/raging periods and the aftermath.
    First part: manic, raging, impulsive, hyper, 'invincible', picking fights, burning bridges

    Second part: the come down, the realization of what we've done and where we are, who we are, what is wrong with us. the soul searching part. Rain represents despair to me. This is the part of the inevitable downturn that comes from destructive phases like before.

    Third part: The dissociative part. the depersonalization part. at this stage, we "numb out", feel empty, don't feel much of anything. we just exist. stare at the wall. we don't feel human anymore, our minds have shut down. they call it a coping mechanism for too much pain, and it probably is.

    this probably means something very different to everyone else but it's really close to my heart, although I'm pretty sure that the band didn't intend it that way.

    General CommentThe outro of it, I think, is pretty annyoing though... It is the track Demise, that got cut out from the Origin printing.

    General Comment"the begining sounds like the ending of away from me"

    it's the exact same notes. i can't believe this is actually considered a song on a lyric website.

    General CommentIt's a song meaning website, not necessarily a lyric site.
    Even instrumental tracks have something behind them.

    General Commenti listened to the song once again and i think i've kinda put together a meaning for it. i think it has a lot to do with becoming immortal, hence the name "eternal".

    the first part is somewhat lively and represents some sort of struggle to gain immortality, or maybe the excitement or wonder you might feel at first when you become immortal. then the second part after the rain kinda deals with "ok now i'm alone so now what do i do for the rest of the time?" and the end just fades out like the rest of eternity is just droning on and on and on... just a theory, but let me know what you all think.
