As I reach out my hands to the sky
It's in this moment that I've come to realize I've played my part
For all of those who said it could never be done
This is for you

Tormented by my every undying devotion for you

I have destroyed myself
This time it was all or nothing
I struck the match and turned away

Torch the fields and pray for rain
Torch the fields and pray for rain
Torch the fields

I have entered the eye of the storm
A pause in affliction
But I'll never feel so alive as I do when your world falls apart
I feed on the thrill of knowing that all our hope is lost

I want nothing more than to be given a chance to start again

If I could find the cure I'd cleanse myself of all I know
Cut the cord, bring the plague
Start again
Start again
I'd give anything to return to the nothing, from which I came
Ash to ash, dust to dust
Start again
Start again

I'd give anything to return to nothing
I'd give anything to return to nothing
I'd give anything, return to nothing
I'd give anything, return to nothing

If not forgiven, will this all be forgotten?
As this guilt will outlive us both
Dear God, what have I let myself become?
What have I let myself become?

    General Commentthe speaker of the song burnt a bridge between himself and another (possibly a girl) in which is has an "undying devotion for"
    because of this he destroyed himself.

    despite this devotion when he sees the other's world fall apart it invigorates him but he would do anything to be able to start again or to return to nothing. he shows remorse at the end of the song by questioning what he has become.

    this is a very vague meaning that could be applied to many situations, an amazing song

    General Commenti love the reference back to "someday" by 7A7P with the "tormented by my every undying devotion for you". when i first heard that, i got so excited. totally unexpected.

    My InterpretationIt's in reference to God and the speaker's faith. He's turning his back on God and loves it at first, but towards the end feels guilt and regret and wonders if God will forgive him.
    To me this entire album seems like a story, from beginning to end, portraying a person (perhaps Karl Schubach himself) going through doubt and regret, and losing faith in God and all he has believed.
