"Chimes at Midnight" as written by and Brann Timothy Dailor Troy Jayson Sanders....
I saw the mountain crumble down
I saw colossus in flames
I heard the ocean draining
Nothing that I could ever tame

Off with my head, come down the line
I have the right to decide
I'll bring this light, as is the sky
Altered minds they criticize

Unrest within your flesh
How can we stop this pollution?

Altering trouble, you cannot fix
Envy of others never makes me rich
All my heroes, they're all dead
I remain here inside my

We have heard the chimes at midnight
Into the void I go
Will I ever see your face again
Or will blank be all I know

Arriving inside
Ire hurts a life

And the darkness here is grim
But it found us, surrounded
Lead me deep into the canyon
You push your guidance in the wrong hands

Feet ungrounded, giving your best
Now take your gold into silence
You take a stand, bracing yourself
For this cold is never ending

We have heard the chimes at midnight
Into the void I go
Will I ever see your face again
Or will blank be all I know

Arriving inside
Ire hurts a life

    General CommentWell Brann Dailor wrote this song about what happened in a dream he gad. He said he was on his death bed and was worried if he'd ever see his wife again or will he just be submerged in darkness. Morbid song.but really good. Dailor also said that when writing once more around the sun he had some personal issues like with the death of his aunt Lisa and other things. He said he finished the drumming for the songs in four days.

    My InterpretationIt sounds like the narrator is going through some kind of hellish nightmare where danger is around every corner, as if the world is ending and he's attempting to find his way to a safe haven. Vaguely reminds me of a dark combination of Dry Bone Valley and Blood And Thunder.

    General CommentAlso, you got some of the lyrics wrong

    This is taken from the lyric pamphlet that comes with the CD
    It's "The brain is wide as the sky"
    "As I remain inside my head"
    "You put your guidance in the wrong hands"
