Buried because of progress and profit.
Face the facts, you can send the harlot for the job of a pilgrim.
When we cast the script, we found it hard to tell either apart.
Enter the modern world.

Take rest my love because the thief is blessed with sounding bells.
The body count is all we got and I know that is hollow still.
Midnight is growing deep.
To sing of love or to sing of life is a lonely road, but I walk in faith.

Raise the flag.
I've seen way too much to let my heart break.

With the Father's past, how can distances be great?
This is for the earth that slept too late.
Bless the thief.

    General CommentThe first stanza seems to be talking about frauds. We bury our beliefs for motivation of "progress and profit." Thus, no one can tell the pilgrims and the harlots from one another.
    The next stanza seems to refer to how we praise those who are terrible people, the "thief." He then talks about how he is going to do right, despite the fact that it is a "lonely road."
    I'm not sure about the next part. Perhaps "raise the flag" means to live what you claim to believe.
    The final stanza talks about how God can take us back, and thus, no distance is too great. This song is for those who "slept too late."
    I assume that the title "Never I" is based on how people never receive criticism well, and always assume that they are doing well.
    That's my take on it.
