black, like a forest
and still, like a lion
my knees are bended
we used to speak
a different language

i wasted my breath
on words soon forgotten
left unattended
they're moving their feet --
but nobody's dancing

ah, take your time
ah, take your time

how can I blame you
for all of the screaming
that I've had to turn to?
just in time
to go off in my hands

    General CommentI think this song is about unanswered prayer. "on bended knees" "wasted my breath on words soon forgotten" "take your time" etc
    Maybe this song is directed towards God

    General CommentI've listened to this song hundreds of times, but it still sends chills up my spine. Especially the "to go off in my hands" part at the end. Reminds me of Radiohead's "Let Down" in that it's such a downer but you can't help but feeling triumphant at the end of it. Sort of a "fuck it" sort of feeling.
