Start over clean and just empty this plate
Sweep up the guilt and learn to survive
Because when it ends
This won't be alive

Would you notice
If these eyes where closed?
Cause from every direction comes someone's objection
someone's objection
This is wearing thin,
We all just see white
Nothing more beautiful, beautiful than this
beautiful, beautiful than this
And pretend that what is known does not exist
And you will find a light
that shined so long ago
I've been shadowed

They hold silhouettes over my head
Pretend that what is known does not exist
Sailing alone around the room never seemed best
Sailing alone around the room
Sailing alone around the room
never seemed best

    General Commentgreat song...great band....too bad they broke up.

    i think the songs about learning from your past and your mistakes, moving on and starting anew. It seems pretty obvious with lyrics like "Start over clean and just empty this plate," "And pretend that what is known does not exist And you will find a light," and "Sailing alone around the room never seemed best."

    General Commentfeels like its about something important coming to an end, and having to deal with it. having to deal with letting go, or saying goodbye, or knowing that the end is near. "start over clean and empty your plate" empty your plate meaning finish what youve started until its done. "this is wearing thin,we all just see white, nothing more beautiful" could possibly mean that whatever their project is (whether its a relationship, or their band) its fragile ("wearing thin") and theyre disorientated and unsure about what to do, blinded, paralysed ("we all just see white") and that whatever is ending is clearly of high value to them ("nothing more beautiful")
