Take a step, put one foot in the grave
Catch a breath submerged in holy water
Watch a moving scene of former days
shed a tear as memory starts to falter
Familiar faces try to hide the pain
Medicate to alleviate the pressure
Make amends with the ones I used to hate
Feel the agony give way to pleasure

Tearing down the walls of eternity
All in my loving memory

Final scene humility

I succumb to universal law
Another system's energy disperses
Mother Nature red in tooth and claw
It's the game that everybody loses

Show your cards and accept what you've been dealt
Guardian or harbringer of sorrow?
Pour a drink, raise a glass and toast to health
Is the truth too hard for us to swallow?

Tearing down the walls of eternity
All in my loving memory

Master of creation,
lead us from temptation
Father of invention,
please guild my ascension
So much left unspoken
Life leaving heartbroken
A sense of acceptance
One final repentance

Read these words upon my stone
“In piam memoriam”

Tearing down the walls of eternity
All in my loving memory

    My InterpretationAppears to be song about dying. Be it either the death of a loved one, or that when the writer dies they wish to be remembered in loving memory (in piam memoriam).

    The song to me speaks of that life is not eternal and therefore we must live it to it's fullest (make the most of it). Don't hold grudges, don't be angry ... die knowing that you were loved and showered others with love. Because Mother Nature can't lose.
