Help me, I can't get out,
I live my life not knowing what it's about,
Just stains of guilt on my mind
Heaven's what I want to find.
This is now, that was then
I want to be born again.

(Oh!)

The darkness came,
The light fought through,
Mercy is all

I ask of you.

Father, Father, please set me free,
From my misery.

I will be with you

In the beginning, I used to believe
That you were no saviour, but I was nah.

    My InterpretationTo me this song isn't just about christianity but does have some ties to it. To me its about suicide, maybe a band member or a friend of one? The whole song goes out explaining that someone is feeling stuck in their life not knowin what its about or what to do about it, feeling guilty about what else theyve done, and they feel like they can't handle it anymore and they just want the misery to end. I also think its about going to God and prayer in times like this and being saved by his guidance and help and realizing what the power of religion can do do for you. Overall its an amazing song, lyrics are touchin and the breakdowns are clever and and amazing. Abandon All Ships is better then what they get credit for, and this song has so much meaning and connection to my life.
