Under the water
It's cold and it's grey
My torrid autumn
Another season decays
Open up the hollow
And my walls come down
I tell you it's a problem
Just when no one's around
But then
I know what's wrong

God, you complicated everything
I know you're gone, gone, gone
This is where I will draw a line

I will draw my line.

Burning my cathedrals,
Cause I don't pray any more.
Look at all of these people, tragic little people,
They smile and then they don't know what for
But then
I know what's wrong

God, you complicated everything
I know you're gone, gone, gone
This is where I will blur my line

I will blur my line.

Our houses are haunted, dark and deserted
They're made of my secrets and shame
Maybe I want it I know I'm not worth it
I can't even sell you my name
But then
I know what's wrong

God, you complicated everything
I know you're wrong
God, you took it all away from me
I know you're gone, gone, gone
This is where I will cross my line

I am crossing my line.

    My OpinionWell the lyrics are very bold. The first verse to me is saying that life isnt what it should be, it dark, lonely and generally just shit. But the chorus is saying that false hope given by god is the problem. He feels like he was promised a good, joyful life but instead ended up having a crap one. As a protestant myself, I can totally relate to the lyrics. I believe in a god but not the one religion gives a image of. I wont get help in my life by a god, Praying shouldn't be a "God help me get rich" type thing. So I am happy that I realized this very early on and didn't go on into my life with false hope.

    My InterpretationIt seems like this person has realized the truth and it isn't nice or wonderful. With this realization, nothing seems right anymore. The truth has ruined him, it's the cause of his problems, he can't think simply anymore now that he figured out the truth. He pretends like he doesn't know, but breaks apart when he's alone. With the truth, he has no need for praying, nothing will make it better. He watches people who don't know the truth smiling without a care, not knowing what he knows, and he feels as if they're stupid for smiling when things are so wrong, when there is no reason for smiling. He then realizes that he's been lying and playing along too and that he's despicable. I think at the end he realized that he needs to stop pretending and stop going along with everything and actually do something about it. Reminds me of a person that is in a long depression and moping around for the longest time, then realization hits and they know what they have to do now.

    My InterpretationThe writer is a fallen angel. Maybe the fallen angel. The perspective seems insider who decides to do something because the only one who can do something is no longer there to help.

    My InterpretationFrom Can to Can't

    A person believes he is strong enough to throw away any notion of god

    he thinks he can

    he destroys what he believes has complicated him and others, mainly for his own recovery

    he has regrets

    he notices the absence of god among his home

    he crosses back to all the people among what he wanted to destroy

    he can't/cannot leave either the spiritual battle he was in, or cannot destroy the notion of god (for at least himself) that was his first problem/complication
