Can you tell me what stopped the rain? Where is salvation?
Science, saviors, tragedy?

May I lead the way into temptation?
Sirens screaming just for me and the void remains.

Would you save my life if you knew why this is the last time?
I'm leaving without you.
Could you save my life had the boy that you knew not died?
This is the last time.
I'm leaving with out you in silence.

Can you tell me what stops the pain?
Self medication? Science, saviors, tragedy?

How deep must we cut to reach sensation?
Find it. Bring it back to me where the void remains.

Walk with me my one and only...
find with me the end.

Walk with me my one and only silence.

If you knew would you save me?

Can you tell me what stopped the rain?
Can you tell me what stopped it?
If you knew
would you save me?

    General CommentIn my own opinion the first line :"Can u tell me what stopped the rain?" -means that he is asking someone what made him loose the sensation that he got from life cause rain is connected with life . " Where is salvation? " - means he cant take it anymore and is looking for salvation. " Science, saviors , tragedy " - means Is salvation in science , religion or even death ? . " May I lead the way into temptation ? " - means that he feels helpless and wants to give into the temptation. " Sirens screaming just for me and the void remains " - he is saying how tempting thoughts of suicide are luring him in and the emptyness remains . " Would you save my life if u knew why this is the last time ?" - means that he is asking someone if they would save his life if they knew why he was going through with suicide . " Im leaving without you " - means that he cant wait for someone to save him anymore cause he feels that its just too unbearable . " Could u still save my life had the boy that u knew not died ? " - means that he is asking someone if they couldve still been able to save his life before he decided to end it all with suicide. " This is the last time"- means that he had had enough and has made up his mind for good about suicide . " Im leaving without you in silence " - means that he cant wait for his salvation anymore and he is going to end it silently without anyone knowing cause he probably doesnt want to hurt anyone by having them find out what he did. " Can u tell me what stops the pain ? " - means he is asking himself the questions again , like he hasnt give up hope just yet , he keeps hoping to find salvation elsewhere other then in suicide even tho he made up his mind about suicide and he is basically asking someone if they know what will make his pain stop . " Self medication? Science,saviors,tragedy? " - means that he is asking Is it in self medication , science(knowledge), religion or death ? . " How deep must we cut to reach sensation ? " means that he is asking how far does he have to search to find the feeling of sensation that he lost. " Find it. Bring it back to me where the void remains " -means that he is saying how the only thing that will end his emptyness(void) is if he finds the sensation or the reason for living again. " Walk with me my one and only.. find with me the end."- means that he is looking inside himself for a way to put an end to it all . " Walk with me my one and only silence "- means that he failed to find salvation. The next few lines go asking the qustions again " If u knew would u save me ? " and " Can u tell me what stopped the rain ? " Can u tell me what stopped it ? " , " If u knew , would u save me ? " - all these questions at the end basically repeat as in the beginning and just go to show that he is still searching for the answer to what made him loose the sensation he got from life and If that someone knew , would they save him ?-also goes to show that even tho he failed to find salvation , in the end he is still asking questions , hoping someone will answer him and bring him salvation. Just goes to prove that hope is the last thing that abandons a person no matter how hopeless that person feels. Once again this is my opinion of the song and this probably isnt the real meaning but it could be something along these lines . I just have to say that these are some of the most haunting lyrics I have come across in any song and the song itself has a melancholic feel to it but at the same time its just creepy and addictive.
