Watch my back, cause it will be in a grave next week
Watch my back, cause it will be in a grave next week

Who's to know, who's to calculate
Life is meant to love and make mistakes
If I ever had a side that could bold face lie
And get away with it every time
It would be the man inside my head
Am I here or lost again?
I keep telling myself this isn't how the story ends

I've come to paint the sky white and black
And when the morning comes I won't be looking back
I know there's still beauty in the colors left to see
Somewhere inside I'll find the other half of me

The lines we break that make the shape of everyday routine
A step above the waves and chaos is simply me
Where's the heart and passion?
Don't hold back
The frames that make each day unique as we proceed
Progress ahead, the past cannot be lived again
I keep telling myself this isn't how the story ends

I've come to paint the sky white and black
And when the morning comes I won't be looking back
I know there's still beauty in the colors left to see
Somewhere inside I'll find the other half of me

Who's to know who's to calculate
It's the mystery
Life is meant to love and make mistakes

You're not lost
I'm not dead
We are moving side by side

You're not lost
I'm not dead
We are looking straight ahead

Watch my back, cause it will be in a grave next week
Watch my back, cause it will be in a grave next week

    My InterpretationMy take? It's about the depressive after-effects of someone breaking up with someone (or that person dying) and dealing with the loss, feeling like the "other half of them" is missing and that their painting everything "black and white" represents how they can only now see the world in terms of their conflict than for what it really is. However, "I know there's still beauty in the colors left to see" shows they know something is wrong with their perspective, like how clinically depressed or bereaved people seem to know when they have a depressed or distorted perspective.

    They seem to vacillate between believing they won't survive the grief ("Watch my back, coz it will be in a grave next week") and believing they will move on. ("Somewhere inside, I'll find the other half of me")

    The album itself is called "Soul Sphere" and has a recurring theme of death, which leads me to believe that this is more about a dead person than a breakup.
