Surrounded by darkness
My body cold
My spirit weak
My greatest attempts to start a fire have proved to be in vain
The flame always fades
The warmth never lasts
And the freezing grip of death is at my throat again
Consumed by despair
My final breath escapes
I can hear the sound of a fire burning all around me
Yet I see no light
I feel no warmth
I find no rest

    General CommentThis song is about a person who did not recieve The Fire. This person either waited until it was too late, or denied the truth, and now they cannot find peace.

    General Commentthat's good. I guess it's called Second Death because it's a different kind of death, the death of the spirit.
    Question: Which member does the singing in this song and others?

    General CommentIn the booklet it says Alex does guitar and vocals, whereas Jason plays bass and lead vocals.

    I think you guys have it covered on the meaning, I thought it was about someone who didn't accept the fire (Jesus) and can never find peace, warmth, and rest and is in darkness.
