"Dao of St. Paul" as written by and Stephan Jenkins....
In this night, I need to call you but all the lines are blown.
If only you knew, how empty I feel.
But maybe then you're lonely too,
And it's tearing through you like a punctured wound.
Maybe no one knows what to do.
When we know we're alone in a temporary home.
Maybe we'll realize that's a blessing in disguise.
A blessing in disguise.

Well don't you know the sound of anger brings a dark result.
And every insult is like a lightning bolt.
So go home now, oh yeah,
You don't have one, to some guy that you don't know.
And make a baby, but that won't change my problem though.
I spent the last three years setting myself on fire for you.
I spent the last three years never knowing if what you say is true.
And it'll be this way until one of us dies.
Is that a blessing in disguise?
It's a blessing in disguise.

And I tell myself what we're living for.
And say, rejoice, evermore.
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

'Til one of us dies.
'Til one of us dies.

Well I confess that so far happiness eludes me in my life.
You better hurry up if its ever to be mine.
Better hurry up now if we're ever gonna find, what we're living for.
If it's not you, anymore.
I'll learn,
To sing:
Evermore, rejoice.

Evermore, rejoice.
Evermore, rejoice.
Evermore, rejoice.
Evermore, rejoice.
Evermore, rejoice.
Evermore, rejoice.
Evermore, rejoice.
Evermore, rejoice.
Evermore, rejoice.
Evermore, rejoice.

    General Commentthis song caught my ear immediately. the heavy guitar part is great and somehow they work in a choir at the end of the song. i figure its just about him resenting a woman for not having the same feelings about him as he does for her. and he sees the terrible things she does and he realizes its better they arent together in a serious way. but still he wants her.

    I think he's still looking for that 'one' person to spend his life with. IMO, he's been hung up on the same girl for som time and wants to move forward so he can find that 'happiness'.

    General CommentLoving this tune right now, especially the repeating chorus at the end, its quote magical. To me this song represents a relationship that has been on the rocks for some time but still exists in a fragmented way. Its nearly tragic, but the singer discovers his own reason to sing even if its no longer for the subject of this tune, "For Evermore - Rejoice."

    The fact that this song is called "Dao" brings to mind the infinite peace ascribed to its religious namesake. And Thor, I have to respectfullu disagree about the way these tunes "end" - the fading chorus only reinforces, to me, that infinite peacefulness inspired.

    At least, that's my .02


    STOKED to see these guys Oct. 2nd!

    General CommentIn this night I need to call you, but all our lines are blown- meaning we don't speak anymore.

    When know we're alone In a temporary home Maybe we'll realize It's a blessing in disguise- the "temporary home" is the other people that they're in a relationship with.

    Maybe we'll realize, It's a blessing in disguise- this kinda refers to the idea that you don't know what you have until it's gone.

    Well don't you know the sound of anger, Brings a dark result- a negative ora brings negative results.

    Every insult is like a lightening bolt- insults go straight to the heart.

    So go home now oh you do not have one
    To some guy that you don't know- sarcasm is being thrown out here and with that he's insinuating that she's not happy and hasn't found anyone.

    I spent the last three years setting myself
    On fire for you, I spent the last three years
    Never knowing if what you say is true
    And it will be this way til one of us dies- this I can RELATE to.. like CRAZY! My sons mother and I broke up 3 rears ago and I've bent over backwards to make up for the messes I've made. she's gone on and said things that weren't true... but had the intention of just being hurtful. i hope neither of us dies anytime soon.

    Well I confess that so far happiness
    Eludes me in my life
    Better hurry up if it's ever to be mine
    Better hurry up now if we're ever going to find
    What we're living for
    If it's not you anymore
    I learn to sing
    -all in all he, still see's hope. he'd like to know for sure..and he'd like it to be her. he wants happiness overall. it has a reference to the song "can you take me"

    "All I want right now
    Is the time where we slept on the floor
    You said right here right now
    Is all that we're living for"

    Evermore
    Rejoice evermore

    General Commentthis song is SO my life right now and i may be biased because of that fact, but i love this song.

    I spent the last three years setting myself
    On fire for you, I spent the last three years
    Never knowing if what you say is true
    And it will be this way till one of us dies

    i just love that way that sounds.
    and i THOR9595, i totally agree.
