This is survival.
This is my exile.
I find no solace.
I find no solace beneath a Godless sky.
Will I find shelter in the places the Sun could never find?
Now behold the consequence, the aftermath of ignorance, shackled to my worthless neck.
Give me one reason to resist.
So I slip below.
I can't resist the undertow.
I find no solace beneath a Godless sky.
Will I find shelter in the places the Sun could never find?
Because everything's turning black and I see no hope of turning back.
Cold terror grips my lungs, to let it in would be to accept defeat.
But what's left to fight for?
When I look inside, the nothingness confronts me.
Vexed by the hands of time.
This is survival.
I against I.
What's left inside?
So I slip below,
I can't resist the undertow.
I can't resist.
No.
I can feel the deadweight.
I can feel the deadweight of my soul dragging me from this world.

    General CommentMy take on these lyrics is just being absolutely hopeless. Feeling as if there is nothing greater [a god], nothing to look forward to [Heaven], and feeling as if your life has no meaning or purpose.

    General CommentI'd say it's more than a feeling but an acceptance. It's the Crisis of Faith that echoes through a ton of artists' works; if there is no inherent meaning to the world, then one has to make their own through all the suffering that exists in life.

    Song MeaningThis is where he begins his journey under the ocean/sea. "So I slip below, I can't resist the undertow"
    He goes here to test his strength and to finally transform.
