"Where Is The Edge" as written by Sharon J. Den Adel, Robert Westerholt and Daniel Gibson....
In the shadows it awakes the desire
But you know that you can't realize
And the pressure will just keep rising
Now the heat is on

Its too late, there is no way around it
You will see for yourself many times
In the end you will give up the fight
Unescapable

'Cause you're losing your mind and you sleep
In the heart of the lies

Where is the edge
Of your darkest emotions?
Why does it all survive?
Where is the light
Of your deepest devotions?
I pray that it's still alive

It's the rule that you live by and die for
Its the one thing you can't deny
Even though you don't know what the price is
It was justified

So much more that you've got left to fight for
But it still doesn't change who you are
There is no fear you'll ever give in to
You're untouchable

'Cause you're losing your mind and you sleep
In the heart of the night

Where is the edge
Of your darkest emotions?
Why does it all survive?
Where is the light
Of your deepest devotions?
I pray that it's still alive

You can't stop yourself
Don't want to feel
Don't want to see what you've become
You can't walk away
From who you are
Never give in

Where is the edge
Of your darkest emotions?
Why does it all survive?
Where is the light
Of your deepest devotions?
I pray that it's still alive

    General CommentSeems to me like someone is fighting an urge inside. Maybe fighting the urge to hurt someone.

    My InterpretationI agree with you leeps, exactly...but there is no specific reference to what type of urge. It's the person's acknoledgement that they have an uncontrollable urge that no fear can suppress and giving in is an eventuality...these scenario's create really emotional imagery, but there is only question left when you feel no power to control a urge, where is the edge of the urge, how far would u go and where does that lead to...and is there anything u believe that will at least give u comfort knowing there is a boundary...

    My InterpretationI think this goes beyond a disire to hurt someone. To me it seems that the person of this song has a convinction wich he lives and dies by. It is justified by his moral standards but at the same time there is a struggle between right and wrong, is his conviction truly justified? When is it justice and when is it vengeance? what if your conviction compels to kill the things or persons you love most? To me the song is about the struggle between conviction and your darkest emotions.
