Ends and means redemption /
Of your past are painful reminders /
Take these wings /
And make good on all the promises un-kept in this life / The judgments weighed against you /
Fell away to embrace your memory again /
Take these wings And make good on all the things that were controlling you /
And then destroyed you and your short breath of life /
Fulfill all of the unsaid promises you made /
To family and friends /
Through blessings and understandings /
And I can't seem to understand why /
The end of your pain meant the end of a rope /
But I guess it's the only freedom that you've ever known / The price you've paid is dying alone
Please bless this child /
All that he's dreamed / All that he worked for /
Every dream /
Make his love, his compassion /
Inspiration to us all

    General CommentObviously a song about suicide...

    Very good song, At first I tought the song was

    to happy for a suicide song, but when you think of it.

    Why should it be sad after all this person has been
    trought

    General Commenti *really* love this song. great but sad lyrics and the piano part at the end is briliant.
    does anyone know something about the background of this song? is it a real story or fiction?

    General CommentI don't think this song is about suicide i think this song is about a friend who has died jsut talks about how we should admire what he's done and take his life to inspire us to be good people and live our lives the way we want to live them.

    General CommentSince all of the experiences I've had with death are from suicide, that's what the song means to me. RIP Tobias.

    General Comment"The end of your pain meant the end of a rope" is the line that seals this song being about suicide. Dude hung himself to "end his pain".
