The woeful silence and wind's reflection
Of your body's pale ode, an icy fortress of blood and ages
Sky fire above, ice below the hearth
Fall away from me to that citadel at the end of time
Where death sleeps and dreams of your buried pain
There has never been a silence like this before
There will never be an ode like this again

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl, and she is possibly dead. The woeful silence and wind's reflection of your body's pale ode, meaning her body sings to him although it is both beautiful,sad,and natural. Men and women can be seen as opposites, he is the fire and she is the ice. I can see a woman's body being compared to an icey fortress of blood and ages. They are together as one but complete opposites. If she is dead maybe that would explain "there has never been a silence like this before). i could be completely off but thats what im thinking. im sure theres many different meanings.

    General CommentAmazing song, beautiful lyrics, quite difficult to decipher. I think it may be about a man disovering aa wasteland after a war took place, with the bodies of dead soldiers all over the fields maybe, and the loneliness that is felt.

    I really aren't too sure at all though, i'm probably way off.

    General CommentIt seems like a man just before his death, perhaps in a cold battlefield.

    General CommentThis could be wrong since it's based off of imagery alone, but ever since I first heard this, I imagined a soul or a spirit, freshly died, traveling down a cold void and into what seems to be eternity. And above there is fire and below there is cold ice (yet not ground, if that makes sense). This will forever be that to me.

    My InterpretationI believe that it could be a stream of thoughts and memories which comes from a solitary moment into the nature (the two opposite - and evocative - images of the silence and the ode seems to refer to the quiet but soundful experience of a winter forest).
    I think that both silence and ode are the two main agents that let the memories come to the mind of the narrator.
