I come across to you
As a half
Everything I do
Isn't all about about the smallest ways

I will remain in you
I will remain in you

Once when I came to you
I already knew
Still come to my conclusions
So I remain in two
One for myself and one for you

I will remain in you
I will remain in you

How can the stone remain if you haven't put it back again?
How can you look at that
You already knew me
Ready to use me

I will remain in you
I will remain in you
I will remain in you
I will remain in you
I will remain in you
(How can the stone remain?)
I will remain in you
(How can the stone remain?)
I will remain in you
(How can the stone remain?)
I will remain in you
(How can the stone remain?)
I will remain in you

    General CommentI'm not sure what the second line he sings is, it sounds like it starts "As I have", or "As a half" then .. something "in the plain?"

    I think the song is a conversation with God, and is about struggling with trying to be two people, one who does what is right/what God wants, and one who deviates, comes to his "own conclusions".

    The stone represents an obstacle, and I think the remaining in you part is a Christian metaphor for remaining with God.

    I'm surprised not to see lots of comments on this one, maybe it is because the lyrics are unclear? Go find and listen to this now.

    General CommentThe stone would probably be the heart of stone mentioned in Ezekiel 36:26. But you're right, it's an obstacle of sorts.
    Rather than two persons of oneself, I think of the two as God and man, his struggle is about being one with God--an idea that probably riddles his mind.
    I hear "as a half Manchurian plain" or "a half maturing plain/play" or something like that. Probably maturing...
    At the end he's saying "How can the stone remain" backwards.
