"Face the Emptiness" as written by and Mat/scheepers Sinner....
The story is over,
It's finished, it is done
The dream that you had
Has vanished in the haze

Standing in front
Of the ruin you've built up
Shocked to the bones
And smashed down

When giants fall and angels cry
You know - it's hard to save the day

The final word is said and done
The story ends where it began
You have to face the emptiness
There is no way to talk it out
There is no way to work it out
You know that's
When the rain falls down
There is no doubt that you are done
The story ends not yet begun
Come on and face the emptiness
There is no way to hide away
You cannot run you have to stay
Stand still and watch
The rain fall down

The higher you set your goals
The deeper you may fall
Sometimes life
Just isn't fair

You are a restless fighter
You stand up when you fall
Even if you
Can't see it now

The final word is said and done
The story ends where it began
You have to face the emptiness
There is no way to talk it out
There is no way to work it out
You know that's
When the rain falls down
There is no doubt that you are done
The story ends not yet begun
Come on and face the emptiness
There is no way to hide away
You cannot run you have to stay
Stand still and watch
The rain fall down

    General CommentI'm amazed there are no comments on this absolutely fantastic song. Shame. Less dubstep imo...

    Anyhow, what I think this song means is very clear. Sometimes in life you can't get ahead. Sometimes you set your goals so high and they're just so out of reach, that even the very act of striving towards them becomes a niche in the road for you to trip on. In all sincerity, this song heavily, heavily reminds me of my own life.

    I have goals and dreams that I want to accomplish; but, I've done so petty little in regards to actually working towards achieving them, that now, nearing my thirties, I'm struggling endlessly to try and chase them down with all sincerity. I've built up staggering layers of failures in my life, both in finance and relationships, only to now look back and "see the ruin I have built". Now, I've lost so much that I have so scant little support from others that it is, essentially, facing the emptiness. I've fallen down, but I'm picking myself back up. I have to prove myself to everyone again in my life.

    Needless to say... this song came into my life literally at the exact same moment that I realized all this about myself, so it means a lot to me. So much so, that it's almost a sort of anthem.

    "You've failed, have failed, and will fail again. Get up and face it."
