    General CommentAfter careful thought and putting the lyrics all together I've derived one uniting concept. A man is dying from a long drug addiction and how someone (a loved one) stood by him and tried to help him. This "book" might be the "12 steps" taken to recover from alcohol addiction. This is so open to interpretation and I just love it

    General CommentI'm not sure why it says instrumental. I have been trying to edit it to get it to show, but it won't allow me.

    [I. Acceptance]

    Now show your hands
    You have no right to complicate
    Now show your hands
    You have no right to complicate

    You put to me in your defense
    A circumstance in evidence
    That’s what you said
    To me it seems you advertised

    It’s your chosen last book
    Gave you everything,
    All you need to make your decision
    Keep these wounds open for you
    Now they’re closing
    Scars remind me every moment

    Revolve alone
    Revolve alone

    All I said I meant it
    Confused by the mire
    We stride relentlessly
    All I said I meant it

    Now show your hands
    You have no right to complicate
    Now show your hands
    You have no right to complicate

    Revolve alone become defenseless

    All I ever said
    Before the moment
    Twisting words inside my head
    All I ever said
    Take back everything, all I wanted
    All I ever needed was here

    [II. Deception]

    So my demons your time has come

    You will find me lay here
    You and I both entwined
    How refined an encounter
    You ignite within my mind
    With one desire
    When it falls into place
    Rush of fear takes over
    Suddenly you succumb to impatience and surrender

    So my demons your time has come

    Well I swear we are in limited landscapes
    Well I swear the tide swallows me
    You're in denial

    [III. The Impossible]

    Don’t you know how you’re feeling?

    Breathe in,
    Reach out
    The ocean swells,
    The ocean keeps me safe

    Don’t you know how to keep, keep me safe?
    Disgrace
    Is this how you plan on treating yourself?

    Breathe in,
    Reach out
    The ocean swells,
    The ocean keeps me safe

    You’re in denial
    Don’t you know how you’re feeling?
    Don’t you know how you’re feeling?
    Don’t you think it’s been long enough?
    Don’t you know how you’re feeling?
    You’re in denial
    Don’t you think it’s been long enough?

    Open your mind before
    The impossible consumes us all
    So many people
    Don’t close your eyes

    [IV. Perfection]

    Give me just one moment
    Through the eyes of the one in
    A picture perfect moment
    In the life of the one who is
    Something better,
    More than anything I will ever be
    Give me just one second
    Just to touch what I'll never own
    Let me count those feelings
    Of love that I will never share
    Show me your compassion
    In the dark of this world

    I would give it all
    For one taste of it
    Of everything
    I would give it all
    To become you
    Well I finally found out
    That this world,
    This whole worlds a lie
    And I'll try
    I would give it all to become you

    [V. Epiphany]

    (Instrumental)

    [VI. Origin]

    I became so sick of it all
    The feelings we found and the time that we shared
    The passion compared is no less divine
    In my mind are the swells that encompass the pain
    And the vision of her, oh, the feelings of pain
    And the memories that were now are gone

    Why should it have to end this way?
    Will they all just turn and forget us?
    There’s only one thing left to find, look around
    And when my light is lost and spent
    Turn the pages

    It’s your chosen last book
    Gave you everything,
    All you need to make your decision
    Keep these wounds open for you
    Now they’re closing
    Scars remind me every moment

    We’d had enough of satisfying lust
    And our intentions were so pure and innocent

    Pay the fool with life and he will find a way
    Play the fool

    Wish that you had never begun this endeavor
    Now light is gone
    And around and around and around
    Wish that you had never begun this endeavor
    Now light is gone
    Wish that you had never...

    General CommentI think this whole part is about a person who has lost the one they love. It completely devastates them and is incapable to go on with their life. Unable to overcome they decide the only thing left if suicide. Acceptance is when they made their final choice looking over a photo book at what they had. Deception and The Impossible is the wrestling with depression. Origin is wishing they could be the person that would have been. Origin is them remember whom was lost.
