pain struck me with a cry
silent pictures passing on by
i apologize for
spinning words like tops on the floor
does this mean that i'm insincere
i've wasted thoughts unlike a spendthrift

sincerely i have lied to you
shamelessly i've made my point of view
carelessly sown circles must restart
i've stood on things that drown in the dark

white faced my mime's quite an act
turned justified acrobat
i realize oh
a star spangled canopy overhead
bury me in infamy
amazingly you cradle me

oh to blast my soul
the casket never knows
a dead man craves a life
why'd the rose pick his advice
danced a step for love
sent the worm to feed the dove
grasped at air sucked dry the sky
princely robe tore at my thigh
pity one who is a boy
when he cries at no such joy
pattern patched this quilt alive
burned the stitchwork from my eyes

i do see you hear you love you
see me hear me love me Jesus
love me Jesus love you Jesus
feed me all the way
Jesus

    Author's comments (aaron wiederspahn, I believe): Hebrews 6:19-20-- So often as children we kick and scratch for our own foolish desire. We must learn that our way will fail us eventually, but we have a Father in Heaven who will hear our prayer. So let us seek Him while it is still called today.

The Night We Met

This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
