This explanation is far less sweet and easy to swallow.
I can’t begin to
Understand what is exact.
Your answer is far too simple
To a question that is far too complex

Everyday I wake
The sun shines down on my flaws

Your faith is fear
Mine is not lost
Only found within myself.
From a distance my sight is bleak
And my friend’s knees
They grow calloused
But their passion does not seize
And our friendship, it succeeds
And our bound hands
They bridge the gap...

I can’t see
Far enough
To fill me
With the passion
You feel for this
I'm content
I will live my life to the fullest

And we strive
to survive
we can’t grasp the concept
that we will die.
We throw stones at the beckoning hands
that will one day wash us away;
we shove them down our throats
with water two times a day.

Because were surrounded by things that always die, we can’t comprehend anything infinite. That this world will carry on without us. But our resents will lift, our burdens will disappear, and our consciousness will fade.

I can’t see
Far enough
To fill me
With the passion
You feel for this
I'm content
I will live my life to the fullest

    General CommentYour faith is fear
    Mine is not lost
    Only found within myself.

    And our friendship, it succeeds
    And our bound hands
    They bridge the gap...

    One person is religious, heavily (caloused knees from knelling to pray) and the narrator is deist/nontheist (probably nontheist, but I'm not sure) or possibly agnostic/atheistic (I doub this one though). However, despite their differences in opinion and disagreement, they are friends.

    The spoken part is the narrator's take on how we can't comprehend a deity or at least an infinite being.

    That's what I got out of this.
