Into a strange new world, into the after
All your tears might find you've fallen too far
Take another look, take another ride
Can't we make them leave the hate behind

And I still believe in nothing
Will we ever see the shape of tomorrow?

Into the empty storm, into the formless loss of hope,
Where we can forget the game

And I still believe in nothing
Will we ever see the cure for our sorrow

Nothing is sacred when no one is saved
Nothing's forever so count your days
Nothing is final and no one is real
Pray for tomorrow and find your empty still

Nothing

    My InterpretationWell...I believe the title is called "Believe In Nothing", for starters.

    Secondly, I believe it's about religion. "Pray for tomorrow and find you're empty still..."

    Not just religion, but the fact that religion is false and misguiding. I believe he's telling people not to believe any of it. Or it might just be, don't believe in anything. Pave your own way, don't let things or other people guide you. Guide yourself. Live yourself.

    General CommentThis song is a little depressing to me.

    "Into a strange new world, into the after
    All your tears might find you've fallen too far
    Take another look, take another ride
    Can't we make them leave the hate behind"

    Knowing that Phil went through a break up, I think this is a sort of loss of hope in finding that other one to love. I myself have been there before. Where you start to lose faith that there is someone out there for you. A person in this state of mind can have a lot of anger towards a certain person or people in general. These lines might be about looking past that and giving someone a chance, even though you have been hurt in the past.

    "Nothing is sacred when no one is saved
    Nothing's forever so count your days
    Nothing is final and no one is real
    Pray for tomorrow and find your empty still"

    It's hard to give yourself to someone after experiencing so much heartache, and a lot of doubt has a tendency to creep into your mind. Without the companionship that we all crave, there is a sense of emptiness in our hearts.

    General CommentWow...he has undergone some serious changed in his beliefs about reality. Their last album was pretty obviously religious, and now he's saying that nothing is final and no one is real? SERIOUS change in mindset since the last album, and a sad one at that....

    General CommentEvery 3 or 4 months, I listen to this song and break into tears. It comforts me in a weird way by helping my accept and be content with a lack of enduring happiness in a world that is apparently Godless. I will cry myself to sleep with this beautiful song tonight.
