Run
Rise

Burn me, reducing the stigma
Born to live in this house of shame
While I dig the grave on my path to find faith
You weren't there while I was dying

You're the reason I'm feeling so deranged
I will stay here and haunt you forever

Why always staring into the light?
If I don't hide inside the darkness
You'll be compromised

But sometimes
You will fly with me again
Without falling
Without falling

Rise, read my words
Run, mark my words

I'm bedridden here, locked outside of my faith
Incurable, captured by time

You're the reason I'm feeling so deranged
I will stay here and haunt you forever

Why always staring into the light?
If I don't hide inside the darkness
You'll be compromised

But sometimes
You will fly with me again
Without falling
Without falling

I told you to leave me alone
I told you to leave me alone
I told you to leave me alone
I told you to leave me alone

Take my soul

Sometimes
You will find me there again
Without mourning
Without mourning

Sometimes
You will fly with me again
Without falling
Without falling

Rise, read my words
Run, mark my words

    My InterpretationIt's hard to tell what this song could be about but I feel like it definitely involves institutionalization. I think Andi plays the one struggling with mental illness and Cristina perhaps plays the one who put him there.

    I think Andi might be dead (suicide) and haunting Cristina. While Cristina is afraid, she feels the guilt and is singing about the happier memories of whoever Andi was to her. I don't know why but I feel maternal vibes from Cristina, like Andi was her son and she betrayed him, and she's almost singing him a lullaby:

    "But sometimes
    You will fly with me again
    Without falling
    Without falling"

    It sounds like a peaceful dream of, where they're both together. Maybe an afterlife of some sort. She won't let him down this time.

    "Sometimes
    You will find me there again
    Without mourning
    Without mourning"

    This might be part of the song where she commits suicide herself. She's no longer mourning. So maybe they end up together in some afterlife.
