Sold are the eyes I have
And cold is the wait for nothing
and dark
I write my name in a long line
How is it possible for you to try

It's coming true
I've changed my name but I will pass it on to you

Journey
No present thoughts
Coming day
Darkest wave

It's coming true
I've changed my name but I will pass it on to you
Our thoughts entwined
You speak
And I hear other words behind

I wave from the edge of the pier
And fade into the dreams of sleepers
marked
I have had this stain for a long time
We called on the bird long before

    General CommentTo me this song is about freeing yourself from some kind of burden held for a long time. when faith has failed you and you want to free yourself of the burden/stress and hand it over to someone else. You've grown pessimistic of the future about whatever it is your waiting for. "I write my name in a long line" sounds like signing your name over to someone..maybe to give up something you held sacred. "I changed my name but I will pass it on to you,"he doesn't want to be associated with it anymore. The person has conflicting thoughts if hes doing the right thing...but the urge abandon whats been torturing them for so long cannot go on....to sum it all, It's about setting your self free something you may have had hope in.
