Lonely in a void where people are dying to live
Weary of the stories that unfold before my eyes
A clenched fist can feel so strong
A lion's heart unable to break
Though a fire burns inside,
these fates are not for this lion to decide upon

Tied to a leash poisoned by untruth
Entangled in the web of a distant order
The iron hand has the lightest touch
Caresses the shells of the hollow and cold
See wind carry dust of withering lives
I see towers collapse to the ground

I lose you just the way that you lost me
I tie myself up as much as you refuse to set me free
It seems inevitable, it always was and always will be
We were always destined to belong to everyone else
(x2)

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about an ending relationship.
    The man (the singer) is refusing to face the truth. He thought he was strong, he thought the love was eternal, and he could not accept to see the cracks in it.

    "Lonely in a void where people are dying to live"
    People are dying to live in love, to have a real and good relationship. And now, his own is being destroyed, so he feels lonely and empty.

    "Weary of the stories that unfold before my eyes"
    He can't accept to face the truth, he refuses to see the signs of the ending

    "A clenched fist can feel so strong
    A lion's heart unable to break
    Though a fire burns inside,
    these fates are not for this lion to decide upon"
    He felt so strong when he was loved, and he has no power to change the fate

    "Tied to a leash poisoned by untruth
    Entangled in the web of a distant order"
    Here again, the other person in the relationship is "poisonnous", distant.

    "The iron hand has the lightest touch
    Caresses the shells of the hollow and cold"
    The iron hand is the one of the singer, the one feeling strong, but he can only carress something cold and hollow, as the other one is already gone.

    "See wind carry dust of withering lives
    I see towers collapse to the ground"
    And now he sees all his dreams falling apart

    "I lose you just the way that you lost me
    I tie myself up as much as you refuse to set me free
    It seems inevitable, it always was and always will be
    We were always destined to belong to everyone else"
    He finally realizes that he has lost her like she did with him. He struggles to keep her ("tie myself up") and she has also some difficulties to let him go.
    But now, they know that it has come to an end, and that they were not "destined" to be together.
