"Silence (Delirium cover)" as written by Sarah Mclachlan, Bill Leeb and Rhys Fulber....
Give me release
Witness me
I am outside
Give me peace
Heaven holds a sense of wonder
And I wanted to believe that I'd get caught up
When the rage in me subsides

Passion
Chokes the flower
Until she cries no more
Possessing all the beauty
Hungry still for more

Heaven holds a sense of wonder
And I wanted to believe that I'd get caught up
When the rage in me subsides

I can't help this longing
Comfort me, I can't hold it all in
If you won't let me

Heaven holds a sense of wonder
And I wanted to believe that I'd get caught up
When the rage in me subsides

In this white wave
I am sinking
In this silence
In this white wave
In this silence I believe

In this white wave
I am sinking
In this silence
In this white wave
In this silence I believe

I have seen you
In this white wave
You are silent
You are breathing
In this white wave I believe

(I am free)

(I am free)

    General CommentWhat Merlyn said about the drug made me think...
    Maybe this songs talking about looking for that quick release that easy way out and after you find it you still get consumed by what you were running from because there simply is no way out.... life is just going to pull you into it deeper....

    maybe depression and drugs for it. Even though you take the depression drugs they work for a while until the effects wear off and you realize your just going to get consumed by the sadness...

    General CommentI think this song has absolutely NOTHING to do with sex, doing drugs or killing a child, period. I think it has EVERYTHING to do with the initial shock of losing someone, the time in between understanding the loss and letting go of those feelings and moving on. The rage you feel inside, when in losing someone you start to question your faith. You miss them, you don't understand why they've gone, you long to see them and wonder what heaven holds for them now they are gone.

    I just lost my brother to a horrific car accident on July 17, 2008. He was riding his bike to work and in a millesecond his life was snuffed out, just like that, gone.

    I have been searching for a way to contain my grief and sorrow. My grief in what's happened to him, my sorrow in the fact I will never see his beautiful face again. I too, have questioned my faith. What God would do this to a beautiful soul that loved this earth? What God of mine would take such humbled soul from this earth and leave such travisty behind? I have question where is my brother, where has he gone? Is he aware that sadness and grief is left behind in his absence? I'm angry and mad as hell at the person that hit my brother, I want to scream, I want to curse God and ask why, why, why?

    I was searching for songs to add to my myspace account and love Sarah. I remembered this song and once I listened to it (again after all these years) the meaning, to me, was ever so clear.

    She's mad that someone has died, she longs to see them, wonders what heaven holds for them, as well as her. She seeks comfort to undestand, she can't hold it in, yet she doesn't know how to explain her feelings. She's questioning her faith and just can't understand anything about the meaning this is supposed to bring her, she doubts her own existence and is sinking in the white wave in silence (because she can't explain just how she feels when everyone around her doesn't understand what she's going through) and she can't understand any of this.

    She is, quite frankly, devasted about her loss, and in the end she has found some relief in knowing she will see that person again, one day. She sees them in this white wave (heaven) and they are silent (dead and can't talk to us after their dead) but in the white wave in the silence she sees they are breathing (alive in the afterlife).

    In my deep deep pits of sorrow, that is what I have filitered out of this song. It has ease my pain on some level.

    General CommentSilence is a compelling and intoxicating entity of human nature. to leave something unsaid is an unparalleled exercise of power or leverage against someone. to lust to end this silence; to search for the truth per say, is a consuming act that is pursued passionately, feverishly, and with rage. To "wonder" about heaven, is to search for silence. The lyrics to this song acknowledge the seduction of silence, but shows a person attempting to liberate themselves from the burdens of this pursuit. "in this silence i believe--i am free." it is not necessarily silence she is referring to, it can be a passionate longing for anything, love, addiction, or life in general maybe. but the meaning of this song is to free yourself from this natural desire, to liberate yourself from the burdens of a hopeless and endless pursuit

    General Commentblaine.. every time I hear this song, you will be in my heart. your face, your voice, your eyes looking into mine - no matter what the future holds, no matter what happens between us, you and james, debbie, whoever - this song will forever make me think of you ... and remind me how much you make me feel. how strong, and how stable you are - and how I will always wish you'd been a part of my life before now.

    General CommentIf you like this song and you like trance, check out the DJ Tiesto mix. Unbelievable. I do not know what the original sounds like, but the remix is a true work of art.
