scattered throughout now
indefinite form
willed to find strangers
in the wickedest state
when it comes upon you my friend
fear not - it makes us men
hidden within ourselves now
lured into hiding out of sight

creation in purity
we don't need no host

suck it in
it waits for noone
take it down
the coming of descent

fiery changeling
reddened and frail
perspire to save it
the remnant of this game
if it launches again today
will our lives begin again
turning away from tides of lust
stronger return against all odds

suck it in
it waits for noone
take it down
the coming of descent

raised to take stand
to separate grace
shown in the wake of new light
seeing it will break
the flavour of aquired taste
another boundary yet to face
witness the revolution
the fabric of essence
come again

    General CommentThe Entire haven album is about changing your day to day borring life, according to the guitarist. This song I think is about when change actually dose how, how it waits for no one.

    General CommentI don't think these are the correct lyrics, the song starts out with "There never was a night like this"

    General CommentJust got the song... man i have been missing out on a lot!!!

    Most of the time i cannot understand what DT are talking about in their songs, but i usually go with the feeling that the song gives me. So for this song, i think it is about facing your destiny.

    Song MeaningStanne has said that this song is about everything being connected to everything else.

    "Fabric is about how lives are intertwined. In other words, it kind of comes from something we wrote about in our early demos and EPs, how the fabric of the universe is connected."

    Song MeaningStanne also sometimes throws out vague and probably intentionally-misleading interpretations of his own songs (at least, I have often thought so). That's not to say that that's not what the song is about, but I've always read it differently.

    I think that this song is about growing up. Not a typical DT theme, but it fits. As undeveloped children, we are full of love, creativity, and innocence. When we grow into the adult world, those things become childish and our adult pursuits become practical things and lusty things. It's pretty obvious which lyrics fit this theme. In wanting to be adults (as teenagers do), we are "lured into hiding out of sight", suppressing our childish creativity and dreams in favor of sex ("willed to find strangers in the wickedest state").

    I think the line "fiery changeling" cements it. Really, how is that not about a young person in the hormonal fury of moving from child to adult?
