You know I'm not dead
You know I'm you know I'm not dead
You know I'm not dead

Now you know where I've been
As you sleep shine I am
Waiting down patiently
Born of love

You know I'm you know I'm not dead
I'm just living in my head
Forever waiting on the ways of your desire
You always find your way

And through it all into us all you move
Forgotten touch, forbidden thought
We can never, ever know

You know I'm not dead
You know I'm, you know I'm not dead
You know I'm not dead

Down below the creatures scream
Strangehold of God's machines
Begging to tear us out
Worn as hope

You know I'm, you know I'm not dead
I'm just the tears inside your head
Forever waiting on the ways of your desire
You always find a way

And through it all, into us all you move
Forgotten touch, forbidden thought
We can never, ever know
You know I'm not dead

We all want to hold in the everlasting gaze
Enchanted in the rapture of his sentimental sway
But underneath the wheels lie the skulls of every cog
The fickle fascination of an everlasting God

You know I'm not dead
I'm just living in my head

Forever waiting, forever waiting a cruel death

You know I'm not dead
I'm just living for myself
Forever waiting

You know I'm not dead
You know I'm not dead
You know I'm not dead
You know I'm not dead

    Song MeaningOmg im reading yout interpretations and i can't help to think that this song is absolutely not about god, his fans, the music industry and sh*t

    Here it goes, my own interpretation, and I believe it to be bether than any of those above:

    The song is about love. As usual. Particularly about the desire to love.

    The thing that is given voice in this song is the desire to open one'self soul to another and give in to another love adventure, yet this feeling is repressed, and it's telling that it'll never die, until cruel death hits it's owner

    now you know where i've been
    as you sleep, torn i am
    wear you down
    patiently
    born of love

    it lurks, patiently, it is born out of love

    forgotten touch
    forbidden thought
    we can never have enough

    this thing tells that it cannot be hold back for long

    forever waiting
    on the ways of your desire
    you always find your way
    and thru it all, into us all you move

    this basic desire to give in to love and open one'self soul to another is inherent to every human bean, and billy, the author of the song, basicaly tells that he tried to deny this feeling, based perhaps on a bad previous experience, but in the end, it will never die

    the everlasting gaze ultimately means being in love, surrendering to love and it's ilusions, and the song tells that we all want that, to be enchanted in the rapture of his sentimental sway, but he the author is in fact repressing hes feelings
