She lies in her bed staring into nowhere
Tears running down her face
An open wound bleeding
Her body turns pale

Recalling the road leading her away from right
as the dark had appeared as light
Tricked to cross the line, dragged further in,
then trapped in a swirl of wicked lies

Now...
[x2] No sign of light, no sign of hope
as a dark shadow enters her room
A freezing chill runs down her spine
The smell of death fills the room

The shadow encircles her, pale of fear
Slowly draining the last drops of life
Her last strength she forces through
and cries out to the Lord she used to know

Recalling the road leading her away from right
as the dark had appeared as light
Tricked to cross the line, dragged further in,
then trapped in a swirl of wicked lies

No sign of light, no sign of hope
as a dark shadow enters her room
A freezing chill runs down her spine
The smell of death fills the room

Overwhelming light annihilates the dark
Immediate rest fills her heart

"My dear child, come to Me.
I will restore you and embrace you with My love."

    General Commentso glad to see Extol on songmeanings. I really love this song - to me, it's a ballad of a girl who has made some poor choices and is crying out to the Lord for forgiveness.

    very passionate!

    General CommentI agree with Punksta. This song is about a girl who is lying on her deathbed, looks back on her life and some of the choices she made, and asks the Lord for forgiveness. The last bit is God welcoming her back.

    General CommentThis is powerful. Here's a girl who's dying because of her sin and at the very end she remembers the Lord and he honors that. Even though her whole life has gone down the drain away from God she cries out to Him with all of her last bit of energy. She goes straight from overcoming darkness to overwhelming light and meets her Father in eternity.
    The strings at the begining are pretty cool too. I think this would have been a great opening track to the album.

    General CommentVery heavy song. I love Extol's mix of death, power, and nu-metal. I'm a Christian and I must say, regardless of your religioin, Extol is still good. Though, some parts are questionable - For example, the part where he says "My dear child, come to me..." his voice is way to deep. I think that part should've been ultra fast with the guitar riffing and his voice screaming.

    This song is about a girl who has been away from the Lord and has found her life going wrong all of a sudden. She tries to make a connection with the Lord, but cannot, and this breaks her. She begins to cut herself, and her body turns pale from blood loss. The girl sprints into a forest and curls up under a tree, then feels a sudden warmth from God. She cries to Him, and begs for forgiveness. God embraces her, and comforts her, telling her it's all right and forgives her sin.

    General Commentbuggiedude, the deep voice is trying to imitate God's - God's voice supposedly roars like thunder, so God probably sounds even creepier.
