that one is predetermined that one, it finds another this one comes in one window sliding out the other we need an instrument to take a measurement to find out if loss could weigh we need to know value we need to place value in case it all comes true could it be loss could weigh? it's always they that's dying but now it's we that's dying so sooner comes the trying to understand that loss could weigh we've been dragged through the fire we bragged about that fire but suddenly we're tired could it be that loss could weigh? loss could weigh

    General Comment"What loss could weigh..."

    Definitely seems to be referencing death. Maybe in the context of a war?

    General Commentthis song is about all the death and suffering that our selfish inwards looking culture has caused, to people and animals all over the world that we never bothered to seriously consider… how we never counted the cost of all that loss… we couldn't measure it… couldnt see it or feel it, didn't try very hard…. so it wasnt real to us. we never imagined that loss could weigh… that it was real and that it would come back to us...we thought it was someone else's problem…as long as it was someone else's mother, someone else's son… in some other place… we never counted these costs as real. but now it's come full circle… and now it's we that's dying… so we begin to wonder… if loss could weigh.

    General CommentSeems to me about social class being an instrument to measure material wealth (and therefore risk of loss), which is of value to the system and class but not to the natural person. Essentially without the materialism & social class, we are not categorized and have nothing to lose materially (because the focus is not on materialism).
