peace be with you sisters
God grant you what you need
shine the light on your blisters
from your head down to your feet
so many ways to break a man
with the food or the fall
so many ways to break a man
but one is not to touch him at all

you never knew one could plant a seed
in the frozen ground from across the street
I am here to bring you peace
I'll keep you alive, keep you alive
when His light will not suffice
and I'll never bring you to your knees

so many ways to break a man
with the food or the fall
so many ways to break a man
but one is not to touch him at all

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. So peaceful but so sad.

    Maybe it's about a man who's lost his sisters, and he's finding himself filled with grief and misery over his loss?

    General CommentCould it be about Sisters (nuns)? If so, verry interesting: "I am here to bring you peace/I'll keep you alive,/keep you alive/when His (God's) light will not suffice/and I'll never bring you to your knees (prayer)." And perhaps the vow of chastity creeps into this line: "so many ways to break a man/but one is not to touch him at all"

    General CommentAfter a bunch of listens, I got a weird stalker vibe from the protagonist..hmmm...maybe focusing on a nunnery in the neighborhood? I like the fact that it's a beautiful song with a slightly menacing vibe.

    General CommentOne of the most possessive songs i have ever heard. It's such a trance-like song i just fall into it so deeply. Truly. This is one of the best songs i have ever heard.

    By FAR their best song. WOW!!! Simply Wow.

    -The New Frontiers song "Spirit and Skin" is very similar in it's style of sound.

    -If you like this song, go check that one out. You won't regret it.
