Can't count the cost
Raise broken hands
To all past glory
I played my part
Now they're letting me go home

A loner
Alone, undone
A loner
Alone and dead

Can't count the cost
Still cursed by one
Unending vision
I'll thank you all
As you're letting me go home

A loner
Alone, undone
A loner
Alone and down

    General CommentFor anyone wondering, this isn't an ISIS song, as such. It's by "ISIS + Aerogramme" and it's on "In the Fishtank 14."

    General CommentAlso, i think he says "still cursed by one unending vision" not "cursed the one." I also don't really hear him say "alone and dead." It sounds more to me like he's saying "alone, undone" again. I always heard the final line as "alone, under." (But that could just be that I was hoping that this song was at least somewhat an extension of Oceanic in which love was liquid, and being taken under is the most sublime of possibilities. The title "Low Tide" contributed to this aquatic notion.)

    I don't know give it a listen. but the would gave these always gave the song a completely different feel and meaning for me.

But in my defence the song is titled "Low Tide")
