Although a heart is crying for the world
It understands the wounds well
Keeping it open it bleeds
Keeping it open it heals

Sometimes we are away
Sleeping through the day

Strong is the hand
That builds the white palace
And the dark gardens
Surrounding the white palace

Lay down all worry and trouble that is done
For what is the purpose in a search for something
That is gone
Understand the wounds well
Keeping it open it bleeds...
Keeping it open it heals...

    My InterpretationI was trying to understand the meaning of the song for quite some time, and arrived to a hypothesis, though it might be wrong.

    I think that it is like some other Omnium Gatherum songs that were explained here about forgetting the past and focusing on the present.

    The first clue I found was 'Strong is the hand that builds the white palace'. It suggests that the thing called white palace is something that is hard to achieve. 'Dark gardens surrounding the white palace' indicates that there is a contrast between the white palace and its surroundings, something good surrounded by something bad.

    'A heart is crying for the world' seems to mean that we are saddened by the would around us. 'Keeping it open it bleeds Keeping it open it heals', where 'it' seems to refer to the surrounding world maybe means that the the world can care about itself (it is probably metaphorically called a bleeding wound). I am not quite sure what 'Sometimes we are away Sleeping through the day' means in relation to this, maybe that we know the world around us has survived our absence (or avoidance to think about it).

    The surrounding world might be dark gardens around the palace. Perhaps the above mentioned white palace is an inner peace we can find within ourselves, separated from the worries about things we cannot change.

    'Lay down all worry and trouble that is done' and 'for what is the purpose in a search for something that is gone' probably refers to forgetting about past things that cannot be changed any more. So maybe the wounds identify the things we cannot change as the past. However, in other parts, the wounds seemed to refer rather to something that surrounds us, so I can't be sure which possibility is it.
