If you pass away,
in the wing fortress there’s a time divider
And a technical team will be at your services
for what that matters.
When the mirror shatters it’s harder for me to see
If there are any answers here we haven’t searched for,
Just type in your code and say a prayer
How could it be, we were so secure?
cause nothing you’ve ever planned on
ever turned out the way you planned
I tried to say
This couldn’t feel more wrong
I can’t believe its happening
or lasting this long
If we know each other
then why should it be so hard to make it stop?
What I tried to say
(this isn’t real, and I feel ashamed that I don’t think that I can heal)
It’s a shame that I would pretend before making amends
But nothing you’ve ever planned on ever turned out the way you planned
You’re still disappointing them.

    General CommentActually if you go by what the person said about the new testament then this could actually be something along the lines of God taking so long to come back. Right? But I still believe that these lyrics can be interpretted freely and some lines resemble something that shouldn't be happening.

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship that shouldn't happen but does. And it goes against what you originally intended to happen. MAybe... that's just what I think. It kind of makes sense for something that's happening to me.

    General Commenti feel like he is talking about a past relationship that ended on a bad note and both people are refusing to reconcile. it is dragging on and taking much longer and a different route than expected. they are putting on an act pretending to not be afflicted, everyone knows that stage. hence the line "It’s a shame that I would pretend before making amends"

    General Commentthis isn't about relationships. this, like most of the songs on this album, are about religion/god/and green's inability to have faith in any of it.

    or at least, in my opinion.

    most obvious towards the middle/end:

    How could it be, we were so secure?
    cause nothing you’ve ever planned on
    ever turned out the way you planned [this line and the two before it seem to be a reference to "Close Your Eyes and See". That is, God created us with a vision and when sin came about or whatever, that vision was lost. He wasn't planning on humanity being full of sin and evil]
    I tried to say
    This couldn’t feel more wrong
    I can’t believe its happening
    or lasting this long [Green is doubting the reason we exist. Why are we still here after all we've done? Why hasn't God gotten pissed and brought us to an end?]
    If we know each other
    then why should it be so hard to make it stop? [Why do we sin if we know its against God. If we're such good friends with him shouldn't we be able to just live sans mistake?]
    What I tried to say
    (this isn’t real, and I feel ashamed that I don’t think that I can heal) [Green is ashamed about his disbelief but knows he can't do anything about it. After all, disbelief in God is viewed as "shameful" by many and perhaps he feels guilty?]
    It’s a shame that I would pretend before making amends [alot of people only pray for self-benefit. perhaps he's said he believed in God efore only so he could pray for what he needs/wants]
    But nothing you’ve ever planned on ever turned out the way you planned
    You’re still disappointing them. [God isn't all it's cracked up to be and Green is let down]

    ...or maybe i'm just crazy. =] either way, this song is amazing.

    General CommentDarkReality - God cannot come back, he was never here. I think you meant Jesus. But I agree with your interpretation.
