Crashed!
They were sisters in fortune;
the serpents they struck them at the darkest of nights.

Two ships sharing a gravesite,
homogenized like a pile of bones.
Two ships sharing a gravesite,
homogenized like a pile of bones.

Virtue scorned in favor of mere survival.
This is not the place for heroes.
This is desperation in its truest form;
many fail to escape their splintered graves.
Virtue scorned in favor of mere survival.
This is not the place for heroes.

Clocks won't turn back to save us now.
We won't forget that we have a chance.
Finding solace in the hope that we have,
this fragile lifeline is our only way out.

Clocks won't turn back to save us now.
We won't forget we have a chance.

Go!

And then the sun came up,
a tiny shred of hope.
Good timing for
a promise to get back home.
The light
within
never waivers,
never dies.
Instead, it saves you from this.

Failure to find shelter in this hell of ice assures you pain that you'll never recognize.
Failure to find shelter in this hell of ice assures you pain that you'll never recognize.

This is our destiny,
you can't turn these ships around.
This is our destiny,
you can't turn these ships around.

This is our destiny,
you can't turn these ships around.
This is our destiny,
you can't turn these ships around.

Clocks won't turn back to save us now.
We won't forget
Clocks won't turn back to save us now.
We won't forget we have a chance.
.Finding solace in the hope that we have,
this fragile lifeline is our only way out.

    General Commenti think this song is about... ships, and that the serpents were the waves that caused them to get shipwrecked.
    The sisters in fortune represent the ships, and they got hit by the "serpents" in the darkest of nights, so now they have the same grave site! The clocks part is kinda saying to me that what is done is done, and it cant be turned back to save them, but that there is still hope for survival i guess...

    Awesome song, the whole albums full of em. These guys are one of my fave bands now :)

    General CommentI think this song is showing us that snakes can be extremely sneaky and cause alot of havoc.

    Crashed!
    They were sisters in fortune;
    the serpents they struck them at the darkest of nights.

    Two ships sharing a gravesite,
    homogenized like a pile of bones.

    The clocks bit, is to be honest my favourite part, and it explain's how you can find hope through everything, no matter what it might be.
