The worst is over
We went the fast way out
You can see the marks left on my clothes
From where she came undone
You want me to hurt like you, to shadow the pain
Away with my sympathy
And the comforts I abused
Away with dishonesty
And my manufactured truth
I don't care, I just don't

And winter came to hide the sun behind the gray
And erase her
What's done is done
My warmth has gone
Carried by the birds of fall
I don't care, I just don't
It doesn't feel like anything
And winter came to hide the sun behind the gray
And devastate her
What's done is done is done

    General CommentHeck yeah, freakin awesome song and much too short!
    But yeah, it's definitely about a relationship going bad. He seems to feel very numb and apathetic toward the whole situation

    MemoryDefenitely about a relationship… but I cannot decide if the second verse, when he talks about "winter" coming and "hiding the sun" is referencing another man ruining the girl, or maybe in fact death…it reminds me of my marraige… I am a former member of the 75th regiment, "Rangers" to everyone… I spent 13 months in Afghanistan… I saw horrible things… but the very day I returned, my wife(then) had packed up the whole house, my children (I have 2 beautiful boys btw) and told me she was leaving me… I became addicted to pain meds (due to an injury sustained during an IED attack) and soon after heroin… anyways, I am now 4 years clean, see my boys and have a good life. But I feel his pain in every line of this song and I completely relate. Sorry for rambling. Hooah.
    "Then the clouds met the sand as the cyclones began…
    In epic charge rose the hordes, all branches and thorns…
    As the stone from their walls broke legs as they crawled,
    The stars had no mercy, they screamed for blood in their fall… "
    100 points if you know that song…or maybe you just make an old war dog smile.…

    General CommentI agree, this song is way too short to be so bad ass!! It just doesn't really make sense. It's only 2:20 long. I think it may be about the last day he saw his one love? I dunno.

    General Commenti think it might be about him breaking someones heart that he has no feelings for.

    General CommentI think its the end of some sort of relationship. It was obviously a bad end perhaps what the marks left on my clothes is referring too. Also it seems the other person tried to make him feel guilty or do something to hurt him so that they could feel better about themselves. I believe the winter came part is simply to a reference to the time it happend or what came afterwards. The band is from Wisconsin which im also from and for many people here winter is the death of something to a lot of people. I know this song hits home whenever its cold, dark, and snowy here and something is going wrong in my life. Awesome band and im so proud that a group of metal/metalcore musicians this great came from my home state. Gives us other bands hope.
