She was born in 1617
She takes the glides of wind
Always chasing her dreams

She was a tortured soul in pain
She whispered this dark refrain
"You're not alone, so never be afraid
We are the cold and beautiful, you are the blue insane"

Sometimes she moves the chairs downstairs
And runs away
Sometimes she makes herself known to those
Unawake

And the Maiden spoke
In stuttered streams
As if her soul was dead
She spoke of nothing

She is the infinite
She is the deranged
Her soul drips the blood
Of the unfortunate and pained

She was a shameless soul stranded in the rain
Her redemption never came and she slowly went insane

Sometimes she whispers in my ear
"There's nothing to be afraid of"
Sometimes she moves the chairs downstairs

And the Maiden spoke
In stuttered streams
As if her soul was gone
She spoke from the land beyond

The Maiden spoke to me

Sometimes she whispers in my ear
"There's nothing to be afraid of"
Sometimes she moves the chairs downstairs

And the Maiden spoke
Inside my shattered dreams
As if her soul was gone
She spoke of the land beyond

She was just another system slave
Just another system slave
Being led to the grave

    My InterpretationCould be about there being no afterlife. "She spoke of nothing", there's nothing to speak of, "there's nothing to be afraid of", well, kinda self-explanatory. System-slave could refer to a religious person, being led to the grave with promises of a better afterlife.

    General CommentMore like the opposite imporpaattur.This song is about when Warrel Dane spent the night in a haunted house. he said he heard many strange sounds coming from downstairs and he had a dream about five woman who were saying random phrases to him. When he awoke, one of his friends he was staying with told him about the generations of many woman who lived in that house.

    My OpinionThis song is about slavery in 16th and 17th centuries,singer sympathizes with a maiden and describes her situation and how miserable she is,sentence "There's nothing to be afraid of" indicates she reached the end and had nothing to lose.
