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
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?
What's left inside?
What's left inside?

So I slip below
I can't resist the undertow
So I slip below
I can't resist
I can't resist
I can't resist
I can't resist
No

I can feel the deadweight
I can feel the deadweight of my soul
Dragging me from this world

Oh, deadweight

    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.
