As I clear my mind enough to see
Decaying pieces of my being that have fallen on me
I find the one clean cut that has given the wrath
Beneath the deep and cleansing fire that is shaping the path
I've had all my life to fall in place
I watch all my past in right decay
And with every step that shames my face
I see all my pieces catch ablaze

The pain is fading, now you're leaving me alone.
I can't stop bleeding, I'm depleting on my own

I can't bury every form I've seen
The hollow pieces of perfection are embedded in me
And with every step the walls give way
And in the shadow of deceit I can see you fade
I've seen all those dreams we try to hide
And the sound of honesty's reply
But I'm not that man you've seen inside
He was born so pure but then he died


With every word I breathe out
I feel it escaping from my soul
With every thought created
Omission leaving me so cold

I've seen inside the downward fall
Remember all the filth I saw
I've seen inside the downward fall
Remember everything I saw

    General CommentGot this in the Demon Hunter forums... It's something Ryan wrote...

    Everything Was White talks about the times in life when you look back to a better time. Often times I find myself in a lesser place (spiritually) than where I used to be. And sometimes I go far too long before I realize that I need to make conscious steps away from where I’m heading and back to the way that I know is right. The beautiful thing about these situations is that God is always there for you, even when you forget about him. This song talks about the emptiness that takes over when you starve yourself spiritually. Sometimes, in hindsight, I can see the times that I stopped caring so much. And when I have targeted those times, I can make the effort to not make the same mistakes in the future.
