take me (far from all that's wrong)
let these (fears collapse inside)
take me (back to when I)
believed

and as a little boy they tried to hide his eyes
with reeds and rituals
the paper and the knife
but fire will always burn through skin and forgery
and answer when you won't
the bloodless hands of fear

he didn't know he was hungry

someone had a knife and took away my eyes

the last time is right know
this choice will take or make everything
your face is fading out

wash those days from your eyes
and let them fall away
drown the fear that own

he felt the wake of torrid days
ushered through by warm mistakes
suddenly his broken feet
took their rest on bended knee

the last time is right know
this choice will take or make everything
your face is fading out

i won't stand here
this dance won't stop the music
your promise will help me lead untill the end

what words have you to say (if this is the last time I won't forget you)
before we spill (exhale the last breath, tear down the statues)
this blood (this scar will remain here to mark where we severed)
this time you will be afraid (my life from your hands)
you have lost me
your plan failed (your hands from my heart)

this is the last time

    General Commentlike omg. no way.

    If you don't like hearing other people's point of views about a song, maybe you shouldn't come onto a site about sharing song meanings?

    I think the song's about being in an akward stage of life and he just wants to go back to when everything was easy and he had more faith.

    General Commenta lot of this song seems to be about religion stifling (sp?) true spirituallity. but that is just how i am interpreting the first verse there i could be off. later on it seems to be about becoming broken, very common spritually to help bring us closer to God.
    i'm kinda confused about the last verse, im not really sure who he is talking to here.

    General CommentTo me its about a kid being forced into religion, and his eyes being covered from the outside world, "and as a little boy they tried to hide his eyes with reeds and rituals" As though his parents didn't want to risk him deciding against it. And the choice that he has to make is wether to believe or not, "the last time is right know
    this choice will take or make everything" Ofcourse he chooses to believe, "suddenly his broken feet
    took their rest on bended knee" It just seems to fit to me, i dunno, what do you guys think? Actually, it may be the opposite, his parents hiding him from Religion, but he was drawn towards it "you have lost me
    your plan failed" Im not sure..
