Refrain from the way we were
Slain the invincible
Changed are the the ways of man
Fortitude to face the path

Vanquish the pain don't want to see it fail
Faith divides us death unites us
Vanquish the pain don't want to seek despair
Faith divides us death unites us

Tears for a hopeless case
Outside is still so vague
Frayed the landscapes of old
Cleared the indelible

Vanquish the pain don't want to see it fail
Faith divides us death unites us
Vanquish the pain don't want to seek despair
Faith divides us death unites us

Cannot sleep through darkened skies
Cannot dream until it's over
Cannot sleep through darkened skies
Cannot dream until it's over

Vanquish the pain don't want to see it fail
Faith divides us death unites us
Vanquish the pain don't want to seek despair
Faith divides us death unites us

    My InterpretationIt is about abandoning the ways of traditional religion. "Faith divides us" into christians, moslems etc. But as "Death unites us" we are all the same in death, regardless of our religion. Obviously, the most criticism is towards catholicism which installs fail into followers that are supposed to think misery and suffering is alright and a way to salvation so that governments can rule them more efficently.

    Song MeaningI read elsewhere that the song was inspired by the life of Elisabeth Fritzl.

    (The video for the song is based on a scene from the movie Martyrs, a French art/horror movie dealing with extremes of suffering)
