"Forgive Me" as written by Erez Eisen and Amit Duvdevani....
Can you tell me a story that I don't know?
Can you show me a picture that I haven't seen before?
Can you do one thing for me?
Just let me go.

Can you tell me a story that I don't know?
Can you show me a picture that I haven't seen before?
Can you do one thing for me? Just let me go.
Just let me go.
Just let me go.

Can you give me a reason why to stay behind?
Can you say it to my face that I'm not wasting all my time?
Can you do one thing for me?
Just let me go.

Can you see that when I'm having, and the story that is
ending?
Can I find a place to be peace and quiet endlessly?
Can you show me one more time just where to go?

Forgive me
for leaving you alone.
Forgive me
for not saying any more.

Forgive me
for leaving you alone.
Forgive me
for not hating any more.
(x2)

    General CommentThis could either be about break-up or a suicide, they both fit with lines like "Can you give me a reason why to stay behind?" and "In this story that is ending"

    My InterpretationDefinitely about suicide, or perhaps a break up. The song is about believing to have seen and done everything the world/relationship has to offer. He wants to end it all and is begging the (former) loved one to accept the circumstances and move on. The only regret he seems to have is causing pain to the ones he loves.

    General CommentI think that, in line with a lot of the themes of their music, this has spiritual significance, particularly about reincarnation, and the nature of storytelling in the human experience. He relents that all the things people say, are the same old stories that have always been told and that it gets boring.

    From a formal standpoint, one of the times he said "just let me go" an effect was over-layed onto the lyric that referred to an Indian instrumental scale, referencing likely Indian spirituality including Samsara and reincarnation.

    There's existential uncertainty and a will to be released from a tedious repetition. Not necessarily through suicide as other have said, and likely more a large concept than simply a break up.

    A lot of the music in this album, and of their music in general refers to eastern and new age spirituality and generally psychedelic concepts. Try not to ever assume they are speaking very plainly.

    My InterpretationI think this is supposed to be about God speaking to a human.

    Lyric CorrectionThe part where he says "just let me know" sounds more like "just let me out" to me. Not sure correct me if I'm wrong. This is my best interpritation this far.

    Can you tell me a story that I don't know who you are?
    Can you show me a picture that I haven't seen before?
    Can you do one thing for me?
    Here?
    Just let me out.

    Can you tell me a story that i don't know who you are?

    Can you see the way I'm haveing?
