Back when the angels of heaven would sing
Days when I still made you feel something
And before what might be
Became what's already been
Blizzards and bygones, the frost and no thaw
Airways constricting and vessels withdraw
And you look around but find yourself all alone
And you hunker down but the cold's already in your bones

There’s a flicker of desire
and a memory of youth
a faintly glowing fire for some truth

I lit a fire
it started then stopped
Elements will conspire
and mercury drop

Can you stand the weather
if winter lasts forever?

    My InterpretationWell, the music and the lyrics are written by Scott on this song. For me, it's pretty obvious it's about his struggle to leave the faith. I think it's also about him missing his belief.

    If you read his blog post from back when they reunited, I think the lyrics are pretty much crystal clear:
