"A Deathless Song" as written by and Jeffrey Cleve Ling Benjamin Michael Gordon....
Let me beat in your heart
Be your drum of war and love
Let me hide in your arms
Be my cage, my key, my lock

Let our bones collide
Until the light falls like anvils from our eyes
When our dreams ignite
Disappear in their fire

Be my deathless song
Fill my aching lungs

Breathe your life into me
Because I drown in your shadow
Like salt in the rain
If my fear is tomorrow
Your memory's the fight in my veins

Let me beat in your heart
Be your drum of war and love
Let me hide in your arms
Be my cage, my key, my lock

Let our bones collide
Until the light falls like anvils from our eyes
When our dreams ignite
Disappear in their fire

Be my open sky
Fill these wild eyes

Breathe your life into me
Because I drown in your shadow
Like salt in the rain
If my fear is tomorrow
Then your memory's the fight in my veins

    My InterpretationTo me this seems to about a loved one ... at least from my perspective I can take out of this message. As a loved one has helped me through bad periods in my life (which seems to be suggested by this song).

    Another meaning could be (if keeping with the album's Ire concept) is that "anger" will ignite the fires and stir you (us) from our apathy. A lot of the album is about putting up a fit, standing up, fighting for our freedoms etc. So it could be that this is about letting the anger manifest itself into something positive (change!)

    Also "anger" (fighting for our rights, freedoms) is something that will never die (so a deathless song?)
