"Dark Side of Me" as written by and Claudio Sanchez Travis Stever....
In those discouraging days
I always missed the mark
When we were comfort and close
I would neglect to keep

Oh, you safe and unexposed
A portrait of time repeats
This moment now replaced
With an empty wish to give
I give, I gave

I gave my everything
For all the wrong things
In this cold reality I made
This selfish war machine

Oh, this has become hell
How can I share this life
With someone else?
I promise you
There is no weight that can bury us
Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt

Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me

Now in your absence I wade
Through the coursing, lonely, lost
And in this tragic dismay
I never could believe what I became

I gave my everything
For all the wrong things
In this cold reality I made
This welcomed war machine

Oh, this has become hell
How can I share this life
With someone else?
I promise you
There is no weight that can bury us
Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt

Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me

Oh, I couldn't give you
What you needed
It's all my fault
Too coward to believe I lost it all

I gave my everything
For all the wrong things
In this cold reality I made
This selfish war machine

Oh, this has become hell
How can I share this life
With someone else?
I promise you
There is no weight that can bury us
Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt

Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me

    Song MeaningSirius makes it home from the hospital, still reflecting on what he's learned and what he's lost. Sitting in front of his house, he spots Colten, Meri's lover and the father of her unborn child. Part of Sirius wishes he could just walk by without a confrontation; the other part wishes Colten would pull out his gun and open fire, putting an end to his misery. Instead, a distraught Colten asks why he came back. If he truly loved Meri, he would have simply let her go after all that time, rather than leaving her alone and expecting her to welcome him home with open arms and resume their lives after almost two years of no contact.

    He realizes that Colten is right and breaks down, still lamenting the selfishness that has led him to this point.

    My InterpretationTo continue where stopstart left off, I believe that us hearing the voice of All-Mother at the very end is Sirius Amory getting on his ship and setting a course back to the Keywork, presumably to join with his wife once again.
