[I lie alone...We gotta roll, we gotta roll... the captain spotted a threat... and he told the gunner to engage and the gunner - engaged and destroyed that target... We're not used to being shot at]

I lie alone
The fog surrounds me and I know that it's not right
I must escape this awful state of night
So here I thread
Standing still without a face of sight to thread
The noise completes the pictures in my head

You learn you must surrender
It's taken time for you to realize
That what you felt was not forever
You find you must surrender
...and now you see the world with no disguise
It takes you in its grasp forever

[since then we've seen alot of-of-of bombs and missiles going off and the last one that hit so close to us, it was very - eye-opening]

The rain pours down on me
The clarity I sought would make us free
But in the depths of fate the answers trapped beneath this mud of hate.
I cast abrey the cause that brought us to this place,
yet here we pause.
And in the fear of dawn,
the innocense I dreamed about is gone

You learn you must surrender
It's taken time for you to realize
That what you felt was not forever
You find you must surrender
And now you see the world with no disguise
...it takes you in it's grasp forever
You find you must surrender
And now you see the world with new eyes
...the love you felt was not forever
You find you must surrender
It takes the truth of now and never
...it takes the truth of now and never

I lie alone,
The rain poors down on me
The clarity I sought would make us free
But in the fear of dawn
the innocense I dreamed about is gone

    Lyric CorrectionThere are several mistakes in this interpretation; I'd point out that Chiasm's official website has lyrics to all of her songs, but those aren't entirely accurate either.

    "So here I thread
    Standing still without a face of sight to thread"
    should read:
    "So here I tread
    Standing still without a phase of sight to dread"

    "I cast abrey the cause that brought us to this place,"
    is actually:
    "I gasp to breathe the cause that brought us to this place"

    Finally, the last two lines of the final chorus-
    "It takes the truth of now and never
    ...it takes the truth of now and never"
    should be:
    "And now you see the world with new eyes
    and face the truth of now and never"

    (And while this isn't as much of an issue, you misspelled "innocence" twice and "pours" once.)
