"In Repair" as written by and Jonathan James/weber Howard....
I can’t believe your face as I’m walking away
This image in my mind I can’t erase

Its taken from the hands of fate (I cant believe your fate)
This sorrow implicates
An understanding of my hate (These words you cant erase)
Pure black inside
Right now I’m facing the end

Holding back the reason while you stare
These eyes cannot repair

Freedom shining through
Blind by all your fear

Its taken from the hands of fate (I cant believe your fate)
This sorrow implicates
An understanding of my hate (These words you cant erase)
Pure black inside
Right now I’m facing the end

Holding back the reason while you stare
These eyes cannot repair

    General CommentI think this song has something to do with a person leaving a relationship of some sort, presumably a guy leaving a girlfriend.
    “I can’t believe your face as I’m walking away” maybe he can’t understand why they look so surprised as to why they are being left
    “This image in my mind I can’t erase” something the girlfriend did to seriously piss the guy off, lies, cheating, both?

    “It's taken from the hands of fate (I can’t believe your fate)” it’s out of his control, what is don’t is done, (he can’t believe that this happened, or that she would do what she did)
    “This sorrow implicates”
    “An understanding of my hate (These words you can’t erase)” his sadness shows to himself how much he hates what has happened, it shows how much he is pissed off about it, (he can’t forget what she said that was hurtful or wrong to him)
    “Pure black inside” simple, he has grown cold, angry, depressed, hate has consumed him, empty
    “Right now I’m facing the end” he is at sanity’s end, facing the end of the relationship, end of that chapter of his life, maybe going to kill her or himself

    “Holding back the reason while you stare” I think that this is describing her, she is watching him walk away from her, leave her, and she can’t say why she is staring because I think she is realizing what she is losing and realizing that it was her fault
    “These eyes cannot repair” her watching, or staring at, him walk away won’t fix things and make/let him come back

    “Freedom shining through” he is free of her
    “Blind by all your fear” she doesn’t know what to do now that he is gone

    “It's taken from the hands of fate (I can’t believe your fate)”
    “This sorrow implicates”
    “An understanding of my hate (These words you can’t erase)”
    “Pure black inside”
    “Right now I’m facing the end”

    “Holding back the reason while you stare”
    “These eyes cannot repair”

    This is a rough interpretation, but I think I hit the nail on this one, if anyone has anything to add on it let me know.
