Take me to the southern shore
Within emptiness unobstructed
My search for something more

Take me to a higher plane
Within emptiness unobstructed
Some things just can't be explained

Here we are again
In the subtle valley of deception
Where does it go
Is it swimming against the flow
Or does no one ever know
Destiny, tranquility, validity of soul

And I will say once more
The world is still a spinning ball of confusion
That no one understands

Within the cold absolute
The cold brutal truth
There is a pained angel

Take me to the southern shore
Within emptiness unobstructed
My search for something more

Take me to a higher plane
Within emptiness unobstructed
Some things just can't be explained

So the river ends
In this calamity we call heaven
Is this perfection
Are we spinning into the grey again
And transforming into the insane

And I will say once more
The world is still a spinning ball of confusion
That no one understands

Within the cold absolute
The cold brutal truth
There is a pained angel

He will shelter you from harm
And sing to you throughout your darkest hours

Take me to the southern shore
Within emptiness unobstructed
My search for something more

Take me to a higher plane
Within emptiness unobstructed
Some things just can't be explained

Take me to the southern shore
Within emptiness unobstructed
My search for something more

What grows upon this rock
And its urgent sense of tragedy
Time has stopped

    General Comment"Some things just can't be explained" says it all. Not really sure though what Warrel's trying say with it, are there things that can never be explained, or just can't be explained at the moment.

    General CommentMy interpretation is that Dane is expressing his usual sentiment of being fed up with the world and does not accept religious doctrines as an explanation of this "spinning ball of confusion" we live on so he is looking perhaps to the spiritual for guidance or "validity of soul". Perhaps the title is a metaphor for a state of mind he wishes to achieve either through spiritual teachings or even psychedelics in order to escape from the oppressive reality we live in.

    possible reference to christ? although dane doesn't seem very fond of christianity, that's what it sounds like.

    Song MeaningDane said last night, 10-19-10, Live at the Gramercy Theater in NYC, that this song is a dedication to his friend that recently took his own life, because he was having trouble with religion and his beliefs, not knowing if he would go to heaven or not. Nothing good ever comes from religion.
