Don't sink into the meadows
They're bursting, full of blame
An ocean deep and yellow
A brotherly betrayl

The water's cold but I was colder
A broken lake of dirt
We will see as I get older
That time, time will never hurt

Feel all their guilt tonight
Your skinny table lies
Your sleeping driver's lullaby
Will watch you slowly die

Don't fear, we'll leave here
100 years from when
The fall, it won't be sour
There's sunlit days ahead

    General CommentI think this song is about the Apocalypse/the Book of Revelations.
    The first verse is talking about meadows bursting into flames and also mentions 'a brotherly betrayal', possibly referring to hell consuming our planet because of sinners who once were our fellow man?
    The second verse (though I'm unsure about this one) is from the perspective of the narrator watching down on this chaos from above.
    The first line of the third verse is clearly referring to sinners finally realising the errors of their ways during the the first night of reckoning, although it is too late. The saved helplessly watch on as the sinners are condemned to hell ('we watch you slowly die').
    The final verse is all about salvation! A reassurance to other Christians not to fear, for they will be accepted into heaven. There's sunlit days ahead!
