nothing can be obtained by grasping at the wind. there is no escape from the dualism of life. vanity of vanities. i am embittered towards humanity for its failures, yet i possess all of these same shortcomings. there is grief in wisdom, there is sorrow in truth. yet, the heart of the wise is in the house of mourning. and by a sad countenance the heart is made stronger in time. so, i embrace this burden and weep for the fools that chase the wind.

    General CommentThis song is rad i'm not sure but I think part of this song he's singing about the grief etc. he has obtained from knowledge and truth and maybe went through some time where he really suffered emotionally or something but he knows it will mature his realtionship with God if he just gives it all to Him to help him through etc.

    General Commentgod damn, hopesfall is such a talented band. their melodic sounds. One of my favorite things about this band is how they Stop, pick up the pace, stop... and do it like nothing. Hopesfall effing rocks out. it was love at first hear? whatever.
