Eruptions of fire and stone all around
They fill the air and shake the ground
And it's proving impermanence,

the tortured landscape heaves
Nothing will be left alive

Bury my remains
under ashes falling on my grave
Make me whole again
give me the sight to see Your ends
Bury my remains, cover up this body in decay
Make me whole again,
paint me on a brand new canvas

Not far from here, a place prepared
Can't find my way, send up a flare
Open the sky,
show me the way through twilight

Even now I see a spark in the distance
A flicker of hope for peace and silence
This span so hostile, won't last forever
This path through struggle will make me stronger

    General CommentWhile your explanation is pretty funny broken, I have to disagree.
    I've not listened to these guys for very long, but I guess that they are a christian band judging by some of their other songs. So...

    I think that the first few lines have to do with the end of the world as said in Revelations. I dont know much about it, but it sounds like that's what it is.
    and I believe the second stanza to be this:
    Not far from here, a place prepared - I guess he means his place in Heaven made for him.
    Can't find my way, send up a flare - Now he is asking for the way to get there.
    Open the sky - Either referring to when Jesus descends from Heaven, or asking to open the sky so he can see heaven. Based on the first lines meaning the events in Revelations, I'm guessing its my first idea.
    Show me the way though twilight - Back to what I said, asking for the way to heaven.

    General Commentit's not about aliens. i agree much more with AudioGlaive. i myself am Christian and i know that what's written in Revelations will all come to pass because it's God's Word, and every prophecy written in the Bible comes to pass. I think it's about the end times...the way to get to Heaven is through Christ- He is the Way. the way to live right is to live how Christ taught us to live- He is the Life. the way to seek and find truth is to find Christ, to accept Him and let Him be a part of your life- He is the Truth...that's what i say about it.
