dead again
i let these feelings come up again
an evening alone, i slowly chase your love away
like a flood, i tear through you
and drain the blood
an evening alone, i slowly wash your love away

oh, i never wanted you to know
this end, it was hardly so
the countless times i tried before to leave my shadow

oh i never wanted you to know
this end, it was hardly so
the countless times i tried before to leave my shadow

by the end
you're dried up and bear by the wind
an evening alone, you slowly keep your love at bay
this will mark the death of my hideous attempt
of keeping you close meant for it to finally come my way

oh, i never wanted you to know
this end, it was hardly so
the countless times i tried before to leave my shadow

oh i never wanted you to know
this end, it was hardly so
the countless times i tried before to leave my shadow

to leave my shadow (x4)

    My Interpretationthis song is about a serial killer, keeping their murders a secret from their lover until their death by the killer's hands.

    "dead again
    i let these feelings come up again"

    killer is trying to stop their urge to murder but can't prevent it, maybe psychological problems.

    "an evening alone, i slowly chase your love away
    like a flood, i tear through you
    and drain the blood
    an evening alone, i slowly wash your love away"

    killer's lover finds out about everything and the killer has no choice but to murder her.

    "oh, i never wanted you to know
    this end, it was hardly so
    the countless times i tried before to leave my shadow"

    this is where it becomes apparent that the killer wanted to stop murdering but couldn't. the killer never wanted their lover to find out, but they did so they had to go.

    "by the end
    you're dried up and bear by the wind
    an evening alone, you slowly keep your love at bay
    (…)
    of keeping you close meant for it to finally come my way"

    the scene after the murder, killer is thinking about what has just happened.

    General Comment^ it could also just be a person the killer is crazily obsessed and in love with
