Stuck in self pity
Anger filling the void
Rapid expansion of the sinful city
The darkness being my call

Strangers walking in my home
Sounds of you not there

Never seen the night so dark
I lack the will to care
All alone in city lights
Where you absorb the echo

Taste the layers of my heart
See it shatter
Mute the voice

No direction
No final call
Alone to make the right choice

Bound for terminal descent
Sacred simple mark
Devoted little testament
Every simple spark

Keeping it together
For my own sake
Retain any sudden urge
Defy the high stake

    My InterpretationTo me this seems to speak of depression, loneliness and a feeling of despair. I love the line "Where you absorb the echo" ... just paints such a vivid image to me. Also paints a picture of someone alone, that not even their echo is heard by others ears.

    Could it be perhaps their descent to death (or is this merely that due to the depression and darkness that they feel like death / welcome it?)

    Very open to interpretations ... I guess sometimes by saying less you are saying more (or in this case leaving more open for an individual's interpretation).

    My Opinion"Never seen the night so dark
    I lack the will to care
    All alone in city lights
    Where you absorb the echo"

    The more I listen to this chorus the more it grabs me. The emotion, the rawness, the vivid nature of the imagery it creates. Wow ... just amazing. I can feel their despair and isolation (without them having to scream or blast it into my head).

    The eerie background vocals throughout the song just further highlight the subtle techniques used to combine with the lyrics to create such an atmosphere from a song.
