I am still what I meant to be
And I'm losing my mind
But our burdens must lessen
Though our enemies thrive

Crowded the hall with stock women parts
Candles were lit, burdened the hearts
Felt a bad vibe kick in just then
Things seemed to smolder, enclosing us in

I am still what I meant to be
And I'm losing my mind
But our burdens must lessen
And our enemies die

Down in the basement, up in the attic
I promised you that I would not stay sick
Here is the hand now placed over the heart
Admire it lover, rend it apart

I am still what I meant to be
And I'm losing my mind
But our burdens must lessen
And our enemies die

Regardless of all I will not stay in
Off to the market I'm going again
Kicking the dust, waving at all
Covering the face, starting to bawl

I am still what I meant to be
And I'm losing my mind
But our burdens must lessen
And our enemies die

    General CommentI have no idea what this song means...but it's very emotional and beautiful. I think it's one of those songs where you just have to focus on how it all makes you feel, rather than trying to interpret the words.
