See the chains which bind the men
Can you taste their lonely arrogance
It's always too late
And your face is so cold

They struggled for this opulence
See the suns which blind the men
Burnt away so long before our time
Now their warmth is forgotten and gone

Pretty maids not far behind
Who you trying to get in touch with
I'm almost with you
I can sense it wait for me

I'm almost with you
Is this the taste of victory
I'm almost with you
See the dust which fills your sleep

Does it always feel this chill near the end
I never dreamed we'd meet here once more
This life reserved for a friend

    My InterpretationTo me this is about about a person near the end of their existence first reflecting on their time in the world, but then shifting to their feelings for another beloved being that has died before them. One that they cherished and loved and have been missing terribly. They feel an almost ghostly presence reaching out, beckoning (welcoming?) "Who you trying to get in touch with?" They ponder...I'm almost with you...I can sense you're waiting for me. "Is this the taste of victory?" Is the hopeful notion held by believers in the afterlife, i.e I'll see you soon when my time is done here.

    My mother has been alone for 25 years now since my Dad passed on. This song reminds me of her.
