We close our eyes
As the day turns to night
We forget what it's like to sleep

The memories again sink in
When they were by our side
Every day and night

We're begging to you asking you why
You took the closest thing to our life
Is it me?
I can't seem to think
Why must we suffer
Why must we suffer

I'm begging you, please
I'm begging you to tell me why

I've faded away
I've faded away
I've faded away
I've faded away

And I fear I'm not coming back
And I fear I'm not coming back
It's ashes to ashes and dust to dust
But we still wish they are coming back
It's ashes to ashes and dust to dust

If we are just a cancer
Please tell me what we live for
What's the meaning of our life?

Are you with me on this? god!
Why won't you tell me you're with me on this?
Why won't you please just reach down

I've been praying and praying to you
Just to come take away the pain

God, where are you?
Because it's been one year
I forget what it's like to sleep

The memories sink in
When you were by side
Every day and night

I'm begging to you asking you why
You took the closest thing to my life

    My InterpretationI believe it's about losing someone very close to you and how when you're angry and ask God why he'd take them away.(We're begging to you asking you why You took the closest thing to our life).

    Toward the end it seems to become more personal as the "we's" and "our's" turn to an "I'm" and "my".

    The title also leads me to believe it is too. Maybe it stands for the date he lost this person.

    Sometimes, speaking from personal experience, when you become angry and depressed you begin to question life itself. (Please tell me what we live for What's the meaning of our life?)

    So in short my guess is it's kind of describing the grieving process, but I could be wrong. I just recently heard of this band and love em btw :)
