Lying on the floor, I hear it pounding down the door
All them fuzzy, awful thoughts are floating into shore

See these broken strings, you tore them with your lazy heart
Old wind blazing our open, tired grave - it's tearing us apart

Cry,
Oh angel cry
Your favorite disciple is tearing out his eyes

Cry,
Oh angel cry,
Your favorite disciple is tearing out his eyes

All the things these eyes have seen, this time they've really crossed the line
I think I'll pack up all my shit and cross to Palestine

Strip down all my clothes, I'm gonna run into the wild
Leave you with my bitter wounds, leave you with my pride

Cry,
Oh angel cry
Your favorite disciple is tearing out his eyes

Cry,
Oh angel cry
Your favorite disciple is tearing out his eyes

Is tearing out
His eyes

    My OpinionThe first version of this song is so much better than the recorded one. The strings of that guitar are literally killing me... plus the lyrics that are so powerful!
    I'm pretty sure the song's about a failed relationship, the singer feels deserted by his other half, the one that tried to transform him. I think she influenced him so much that now he feels lost and doesn't know who he is anymore. And this is a pretty bad state to be in, especially when that person leaves you.

    I also think this song can have multiple meanings, but the vibe that the song gives me, personally, is that of being alone, hurt and wanting to "tear out your eyes"....to try to replace the spiritual pain with a physical one.
    One of my favourite songs of Asaf. love it& love him
