    General CommentWhen I listen to this song, i can see a whole story.
    At the beginning there's this guy in a hospital, and his eyebrows start moving. By 1:00 I see all the doctors and the nurses, around his bed, watching him wake up. It's awesome how after so many years he has waken up, to life. After that I see how he regains his life, and starts watching what's new in the world. By the end of the song I just see him in his home, with his family.

    General Commentto me, the title 'first breath after coma' is a metaphor for a second chance (specifically a new outlook) or a sudden realization of some sort. for example, realizing that something you have been searching for has been right in front of you all along. some identify with love. personally, i see it as discovering a new direction in life. whomever or whatever it is for you...let your eyes be opened around 2 minutes and 27 seconds into the song. intense stuff.

    General Commentas with all their songs, youre left to construct your own meaning. this song reminds me of this time this girl and i were in this huge sunlit auditorium and there were swallows trapped inside. the doors to the upper balconies were locked so i had to climb up the wall to open the window. i was rewarded for this with a kiss, and it was like a cinematic moment. the room brightly lit sunlight all around us and birds chirping and flying around. i guess the epic scope of that one small kiss resonates with me in this epic song.

    General CommentSomething I find EiTS does with their music, they'll write a title, and give the untold story a soundtrack. It's up to you to build it. I think, more than any song, First Breath is the most diversified in terms of story telling.

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song, I was reminded of an animated film I watched about a year ago called "The Place Promised In Our Early Days". It's a love story in which two guys are in love with a girl who has been in a coma for years. She is in love with one of them and sees him in "dreams" she has during the coma, but is unable to reach him. In the final scene of the movie, she wakes up as dawn breaks and the guy she loves is right beside her (to say the exact circumstances would spoil the plot - see it, it's an awesome movie).
    Anyway, I just found the imagery and feelings that the music evokes to be very reminiscient of what I got from the movie ^_^.
