There is no use in dying
When still I seem to be undone
There is no use in trying to find again
The love of someone

Where have I gone and come so far
Well, I've been headed nowhere
I have been walking quite a while along
Feeling lonesome

Don't you worry,
They won't find my body
I want you to know
I found peace in another world
Don't keep digging,
I want you to leave back
Away from the place
Where my ashes are buried

I still can hear you breathing
As if you'd never gone away
I still can feel your touch,
Your tenderness
As if you were still there

There is no sense in crying
Only liquid running from my eyes
And all the feelings I restrain
Are the Remainders that survived

    General CommentYep, great song indeed. It's about there having to be something better than this. I'm going to seek it, don't look for me when I'm gone because I sure don't want to return.

    My InterpretationI know this interpretation will sound a bit off the wall, but oh well.

    The song doesn't seem to me to be about suicide, but rather a metaphor for reconciliation. After going through the pain of losing someone, probably not to death but to that person turning their back and withdrawing their love, he constructed an idyllic version in his heart of that person to keep the feeling alive.

    After realizing how this was doing nothing for him, getting him nowhere, he took the painful step to move on, and is banishing this idealized rendition of the person from his heart and mind, knowing that the long-lasting suffering he's been going through is finally coming to an end.

    But, that's the wonderful part about interpreting songs and poetry like this -- it can mean anything to anyone.

    General CommentThis song is sweet, seems to be about an afterlife (that might or might not exist according to the song), though Then the first few lines of the song don't make sense...
    Meh maybe he just wrote it that way cause it sounded cool

    General CommentIt's about commiting suicide, then not wanting those you left behind to miss you.

    General CommentWhat an amazing song... I seriously can't get enough of it. By far my favorite 'Beborn' song out there. Nothing matches the feeling you get when the thumping chorus kicks in time after time - simply perfect!

    General CommentI agree with you, Jenovasson. There are extremely powerful undertones to this song, and the message is unmistakable.

    General Commenti used to think this song was about someone being killed, and the family looking for them.
    suicide makes far more sense though.

    General CommentIt seems this song is about suicide, however something doesn't add up. His ashes are buried in a location where people won't find them. Either he killed, cremated and buried himself, or the person who is worried about them finding him had a hand in it, which makes a lot more sense.

    General CommentI see it as a song about suicide also. Maybe he is already dead and saying there is no use in dying in that he didnt find the love he was searching for in death even. Also, since the band is German, their English isnt always the best so sometimes things come out a bit stilted or garbled.
