"Inner Silence" as written by and Daniel Cavanagh....
When the silence beckons,
And the day draws to a close,
When the light of your life sighs,
And love dies in your eyes,
Only then will I realize,
What you mean to me

    General CommentActually, i don't thick the theme of this song is of actual physical death, so much as the death of love itself. And indeed it is true that when love has died in the eyes of your lover, you will pretty soon come forcefully to terms with what that person has actually meant to you..

    General CommentI always thought it was about he himself is dying in front of his love. Either way, I agree with Corax interpretation greatly.

    General CommentThis song is about their mother, who died in 1998 (just like One last goodbye by the way). In a life concert Vinnie said "were gonna do 'inner silence' and 'One last goodbye' for our own mom, who looked after us very well" So it is obvious.

    General CommentThis song is very true. It seems to me that a lot of Anathema songs are about his lover dieing. They are very sad, I used to listen to them when me and my boyfriend broke up a year and a half ago.

    General Commenti once rode my bike for a good 25 miles on day while listening to satyricon. i left around 6 at night in the summer.... so it took awhile.... on my way home, traffic died down and i pulled over in a parking lot and switched my cd to anathema's "alternative 4" and put this song on right away. it was such a nice moment and it wasn't made of anything special, just such a nice song which made me remeber my ex girlfriend and things... it was bittersweet. beautiful and sorrowful at the same time. i love it.

    General Commentummm i'm not sure about the mom thing, but it seems to me that (simply from reading the lyrics) that it's about a moment when you're sitting with let's say a person you thought you would love forever, and somehow up till then you'd used up all your love and then there's none left for that perosn, and then you remember someone else who you'd rather be with...
