"The Unknown" as written by Daniel Coulter Reynolds, Daniel Wayne Sermon, Benjamin Arthur Mckee and Daniel James Platzman....
Woman help me, you turn my head in circles
Mama blessed me with magnet eyes for purple
Oh so let me show you something good

Pastor, preacher, I want to say I'm sorry
Nice to meet you, I think my eyes are starry
Pledge allegiance to my only

Sooner or later it all comes around
Hopefully then I will see
After the people and places are gone
You will come back, you will come back to me
To me, to me
You will come back to me
To me, to me

Auntie Mara, I think you know my reasons
I was a product of everything in season
Oh so heavy, set me free again
Oh my papa, if all the world could know you
You could stop a thousand wars across the globe
Oh I miss you, show them something good

Sooner or later it all comes around
Hopefully then I will see
After the people and places are gone
You will come back, you will come back to me
To me, to me
You will come back to me
To me, to me

To me
To me

    General CommentI think this song is all about death.
    That is, "The Unknown" - what comes after death?
    The singer is singing to the person he has lost in life, and how he will meet them again in the after life, when he dies.
    "After the people and places are gone" are the people and places of this world. Once they are gone, that is, once the singer dies, "You will come back to me" he will reunite with his family.

    "Sooner or later it all comes around" - death is inevitable. The singer acknowledges this. But in my view, he is not afraid to die.
