Another star
Has fallen without sound
Another spark
Has burned out in the cold

Another door
To the barrens standing open
And who is there
To tell me not to give in, not to go?

How could I know?
How could I know?
That I'll get lost in space
To roam forever

How could I know?
How could I see?
Feeling like lost in space
To roam forever

I'm crawling down
The doorway to the badlands
And kicking down
Are you heard: it's to the black

And all the damage
Fading in the rear view mirror
When the demons
Are calling me, they're dragging me away

How could I know?
How could I know?
That I'll get lost in space
To roam forever

How could I know?
How could I see?
Feeling like lost in space
To roam forever

Lost in space
Lost in time
Lost in space
Lost in time
Lost in space

How could I know?
How could I?

How could I know?
How could I know?
That I'll get lost in space
To roam forever

How could I know?
How could I see?
Feeling like lost in space
To roam forever

Forever...Forever...Forever...Forever...

    General CommentThis song sounds like HIM, but anyways, I guess the lyrics are about Tobias finding a meaning for what he does.

    General CommentActually, I think that the lyrics are more about feeling lost or out of place somewhere (or in life in general). I dont know the concept of the Scarecrow album yet and this song surely will fit into that album but by itself, thats the meaning I got from it. Great song, I dont see how it sounds like HIM, but HIM is a pretty good band so.... Great song imo

    General CommentIt really seems like searching for meaning, or finding a place, like previously stated. In addition, I think it is about all his choices, and the tempting dark things. He doesn't choose much of anything, so he wanders in space.

    My InterpretationI found this song very awesome, and powerful, and after listening to it and reading the lyrics a few times, i came to this interpretation.

    He seems to be singing about things that die, but are never known.

    Another star
    Has fallen without sound
    Another spark
    Has burned out in the cold
    -----------------------------
    Another door
    To the barrens standing open
    And who is there
    To tell me not to give in, not to go?

    I think he is talking about temptation, and how whatever it is that the barrens is a metaphor for, he was never told not to give into it.

    -----------------------------

    How could I know?
    How could I know?
    That I'll get lost in space
    To roam forever

    Again, temptation, and how he couldn't have known that it was going to end in him "lost in space, roaming forever"

    ----------------------------


    I'm crawling down
    The doorway to the badlands
    And kicking down
    Are you heard: it's to the black

    This part confuses me a bit, but i imagine that he is talking about going up to the "doorway" to wherever he got screwed over and demanding..... something..... As for the last line, i am clueless

    -----------------------

    And all the damage
    Fading in the rear view mirror
    When the demons
    Are calling me, they're dragging me away

    Again, metaphor, i believe he is talking about being dragged away by an overpowering force, the one that got him in trouble, and he can see all of the damage he has caused behind him.
