You've been bedding with the down and below
On your toes peering out the hole
The Void offers sweet release
And always the thought of defeat, it has lessened you
Mortar and bricks have cut off your air
And always the fire burns deep and down within you
Has left you so afraid of love
The things you don't say have weighed without weight
Impatient and persistant, not fleeting, not for a moment
When it seems that all you're made to do is suffer
You'll be pleased to know that miracles do occur
You never chose this
This place you don't fit
You're just misplaced
A pet with no trick
A wreck
Broken in need of a fix
And always the feeling of failure has trailed you
Nothing you've tried keeps the vultures at bay
So restless and weary, you desperately struggle
But it's all to no avail
The mirror of mirth lies shattered in pieces
So long the image, now you'll never see it.
And the leaden ball that's been chained to your ankle
Has kept you running in circles
You never chose this
This place you don't fit
You're just misplaced
A pet with no trick
A wreck
Broken in need of a fix
How numb have you become?
Now that you've lost all connection
Your bottle is filled up to the brim
Who will be left to clean the spill?
And when your breaking point pierces the surface tension
You're sure to overflow all at once
And see how brittle becomes you
And there is no escaping this
All of the memories haunt your flesh
There is no trace of the events
Only the ones you recollect
Relax and arrest the arrhythmia within your chest
The bells toll not for your atonement
And you can't make them stop
And always the thought of defeat, it has lessened you
Mortar and bricks have cut off your air
And always the fire burns deep and down within you
Has left you so afraid of love
The things you don't say have weighed without weight
Impatient and persistant, not fleeting, not for a moment
When it seems that all you're made to do is suffer
You'll be pleased to know that miracles do occur

    General CommentThis song is depressing as fuck. The meaning is pretty clear I think.

    And is it just me, or is the line "You'll be pleased to know that miracles do occur" said in sarcasm? Because it just doesn't fit otherwise, and it's a VERY powerful line that way imo.

    General CommentTotally agree. It seems like an artist's interpretation of the dark side of life. Probably written about his own life, but in a way that sounds like a sympathetic disembodied voice narrating his life.


    "How numb have you become?
    Now that you've lost all connection
    Your bottle is filled up to the brim
    Who will be left to clean the spill?
    And when your breaking point pierces the surface tension
    You're sure to overflow all at once"

    This part makes the whole song for me. Just unbelievable climax to a very powerful song.
