This is the dance
That brings the dead to the living
Just say "I miss you
Every day you know"

This is the dance
That brings the dead to the living
They say "I'm with you
Every day you know"

This is the dance
That brings the dead to the living
Just say "I miss you
Every day you know"

This is the dance
That brings the dead to the living
They say "I'm with you
Every day you know"

Can you hear them come? (x8)

This is the dance
That brings the dead to the living
Just say "I miss you
Every day you know"

    General CommentI hear this as the insanity that follows their refusal to accept the realization and consequence of their traumatic experience. They enter a world in which their dead child has been revived after a ritual. But the observer is ignorant about the demons that come and take what you hold most precious and most holy and is therefore unable to enter this world. The observer would ask why they're acting so strange, and they'd respond with this song.

    The years behind me aren't many, so I can neither boast the love a parent sends his child, nor can I imagine the grief he feels after his right to love it is taken away, but I imagine most parents would wholeheartedly follow the passion of their hearts and ignore the blistering logic of their brains for eternities if it at the end of this track lay, gently and alive, their baby. These two do.

    While I'm not implying an interpretation of them as mentally unstable, I hear there are several moments, through darkness or out the day, where they escape into the bliss of the memories of their baby love.
