The first morning, the first time you realize you've laid it to rest yourself.
That god died in you and you couldn't save you even then.
"Lord come into my life."
These scars that never heal and the clarity that allows you to feel.
Enveloped, like the dead enveloped.
I wanted to change.
As if being discarded were that easy and the nights ended up being that empty.
It's so much more free, you were led by no one here.
This place is warm the change is definite.
And I've been stripped down, time and time again.
And left for the gray, and the cold.
Your voice changes pitch and blurs, like a storm carries a ship, you couldn't save me even then and I should have known that.

    General Comment"I've been stripped down, time and time again...
    And left for the gray, and the cold.
    Your voice changes pitch and blurs, and blurs...
    Like a storm, like a storm...like a storm carries a ship
    you couldn't save me
    like a storm, like a storm...
    you couldn't save me even then and I should have known that, i should have known that..."

    The end of this song is so epic and emotional, it's almost too much to take in. Amazing song and amazing band...I really wish they hadn't broken up.
