"Stone On The Water" as written by and Damon Michael Gough....
So we restore harmony
Smooth the lines on the face of an old enemy
But there's no wood on the fire again
We can meet any place
You know where, I know when
To go

Skid like a stone on the water
Fall with no trace to lie permanently
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh

Into the valley we roll
Where we fumble around 'till we find our way home
Yet, all we have is an old ball of string
Will it reach to the end
Of this dark labyrinth?
No

Skid like a stone on the water
Fall with no trace to lie permanently
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

    General CommentI thought in the line "will it reach to the end of this old labyrinth" it really says "will it reach to end of this dark labyrinth". oh well,this is just such a great song!

    General CommentThis is a song about things coming full circle again, only things will go poorly with this new repitition. The characters are unprepaired and the situation will most likely end in disaster.

    In some versions, it IS 'dark labyrinth', but old is the more common one.

    This song made me the man I am today.

    General Commenti see this more as a positive song bc of the chorus. it seems more like he's saying that you should take whatever life throws at you. "fall with no trace to lie permanently" seems to suggest that even though you're falling you shouldn't assume that you'll die (lie permanently) and instead take nothing for granted and take everything as it comes and make the best out of it. maybe i'm just being way too philosophical and reading into this way too much, but it doesnt matter because the song is still absolutely phenomenal--def my fave on this album. he's really a mastermind when it comes to writing beatiful pieces of music.

    General CommentOn mine it's "dark". I think it's great how he releases different versions of the songs with his albums - gives the die-hards (like me ;)) a chance to collect!

    General Commentto me, this song is about peace between him and himself or a friend or his gf or a part of him.
