This sinking warmth through obscurity
Beyond the sweet in between where, and what, you're doing
There is a view of an uncharted place
where you're the brunt of a joke and everyone's laughing

I'm not who I seem, who you thought I could be
The support you can lean up against when you need
I'm the dark when you want the lights out, at all costs
This is mine, that is yours, I'm the bricks in your wall

Goodbye forever, my darling, whether
I was everything you thought I'd be or not
I was a bad man, ooh, to stop you girl, from loving me (oh, oh)
Goodbye forever, my darling, whether
I was everything you thought I'd be or not
I was a bad man, ooh, to stop you girl, from loving me (oh, oh)

A yearning loss to silence me
The struggle breaks the black and white, calling, transmitting
The echo breaks electric air
The pulse, it stretches, from never to everywhere

And from the other side, she'll save me
Her courage, strength and heart beyond
I wish she'd stay mine, but her place is in some other time

Goodbye forever, my darling, whether
I was everything you thought I'd be or not
I was a bad man, ooh, to stop you girl, from loving me

Bodies separating, ascend and release
This tragedy's all my fault
Reaching desperately to salvage any piece
This tragedy's all my fault

This hurt won't, won't go away (x8)

And from the other side, she'll save me
Her courage, strength, and heart beyond
I wish she'd stay mine, but her place is in some other time

Goodbye forever, my darling, whether
I was everything you thought I'd be or not
I was a bad man, ooh, to stop you girl, from loving me

Goodbye forever, goodbye forever (You won't be forgotten) (x4)

    Song MeaningAs Sirius is lying near death, his pulse and heart rate dropping, do to snuffing the match and not forcing Vic the Butcher out of his body. Vic is quickly taking over his body and killing Sirius' soul. As this happens All Mother detects an unidentified soul. This is the woman Evagria.

    Evagria was a strong and compassionate woman in life, adopted three children from offworld, and always helped people. When she died or a rare and painful bone disease, she was surrounded by loved ones, and showed strength and love even at the moment of her death.

    As such, she is a pure soul, and her versions of the Keywork is a colorful, peaceful utopia.

    The bulk of this song is Sirius, lying in the embrace of Evagria. Evagria forces Vic out and erects a force field around them, so no other souls can get near him. He then reflects on his life with Meri. His pursuit of the Keywork, and leaving her behind.

    He wonders whether or not, he'll find paradise like Evagria, or if his leaving Meri will be his dark defining moment, and make him like the previous souls he encountered.

    Song MeaningI'm reckoning Sirius is being saved from Vic the Butcher by Evagria.
    In the album version, I'm pretty sure he says 'from the other side she'll see me' the second time. This could be after he is absorbed into the keywork, and he is now on 'the other side' from Mary.
    Or it could be a mistake. Guess the liner notes might shed some light on that one.

    Song Meaning!!! IF YOUR NOT FAMILER WITH THE STORYLINE SPOILER ALERT !!!

    This album is about Sirius Amory and about his discovery that the Keywork is made of lost souls. So I think that the songs with the titles 'Key Entity Extraction' are songs about him extracting a soul from the Keywork and each song is telling the story of that souls life, this one being about Evagria and her life.

    Song MeaningThis is a song about Sirius talking to Mary. At the end of Vic the Butcher the All Mother tells Sirius he is not well, but yet he continues on. Each time he extracts an entity, it takes a part of his life as well. He thinks he is about to die, and that's where the chorus comes in, it's what he is saying to Mary. "And from the other side, she'll save me Her courage, strength and heart beyond
    I wish she'd stay mine, but her place is in some other time" i think this means that the love from Mary is keeping him going, but he knows he has been gone to long and she has probably found another love interest. (which she has in good night fair lady) he knows that Mary won't be waiting for him when he gets back "bodies separating, sit and release... reaching desperately to salvage anything" Like i said, he thinks he is about to die, thats why he keeps saying 'goodbye forever' but Mary is also saying to him "You won't be forgotten" because he is the only person who sought out to learn about the keywork and she will always love him, but she can't wait for him to get back

    General CommentApparently Evagria was a little girl, who died of a bone disease. Through it all, she was faithful that things would work out, so in the Keywork, she's happy, in a Utopia. After dealing with Vic the Butcher, Sirius is dying due to being divided by the entities. Evagria saves him.

    Song MeaningI think this song is obviously Sirius seeing the spirit of his wife.
