When we walk, we walk with darkness
and our hearts, they love the lawless.
That's why he worries that they'll find us
before redemption's light will bind us.
I said I'd go where he would lead me
down a parth of grace and mercy,
But I stumble now I'm standing
at the crossroad. No sign of heaven.

And when my body breaks
will your words heal my wounds?
And when my vision's gone
will your life light the way?
And when the last man falls
will you stand over him, and over me, and over all we need?


Oh to battle we will march now
with our heads down and our hearts out.
Abated picture of what we once were
the only hope we can remember.

And when my body breaks
will your words heal my wounds?
And when my vision's gone
will your life light the way?
And when the last man falls
will you stand over him, and over me, and over all we need?

    General CommentSeems like he's struggling to compromise ideas of God's perfect love and mercy and all the lack of it he sees in the world.

    He's met with a choice, and he remains at the crossroads which, in Christianity, is not a safe place to stay where you can make up your mind later (especially taken with the (spiritual) battle imagery in the song, you are either on one side or the other).

    He wants to know if God's promises are true and that even though he sees so much unjustified death, that God will work it out in the end.

    Or you could see it from the standpoint is from someone like Adam who would have an idea of "what we once were" but yet before the redemption of mankind.
