Scatter the roots (routes?) of our passage tonight
discard the memories we chose to survive
all of our senses overshadowed by a song
pining for strength and reprieve from the strong..

When she was five years old there's cake and bright lights
and when she was ten she became the maid's bride
with temperance and beauty and salvation unknown
a life isolated, painless, and young..

Stand up and face it although you're half dead
try to remember though they've taken your head
why we sleep fully dressed and rise early from bed
who did this to us?
who did this to us..?

So partial to memory, the pearls of our dead
but where do we keep them? put'em here by the steps
while I climb to the top and I find where I am..

    General CommentGreat song, very gorgeous, but I can't understand its meaning at all.
    The text suggests me that it talks about a person who lives in a condition of oppression. Other people (a religious community maybe?) makes this person do things and play a role that he/she doesn't understand

    In my opinion the character could be the "She" in the second stanza or someone who knew her well.
