"Thorns" as written by and Don Clark Ryan Clark....
Bitter thoughts became your every waking breath
Save the nights your hollow dreams revealed the sweet release of death
In your thoughts you played a symphony of self
But your soul had bled a darker song of close to nothing left

Oh, The deliverance of blade and flame, your love
And greater is the blood

You'll find it in the veil of night where solitude is born
In the emptiness of broken flesh, at the mercy of the thorns
You'll find it in the veil of night where solitude is born
In the emptiness of broken flesh, at the mercy of the thorns

Every line a path into an empty heart
Where the words of now forgotten love fall silent in the dark

Oh, The deliverance of blade and flame, your love
And greater is the blood

You'll find it in the veil of night where solitude is born
In the emptiness of broken flesh, at the mercy of the thorns
You'll find it in the veil of night where solitude is born
In the emptiness of broken flesh, at the mercy of the thorns

Sister, don't you sleep through your own eulogy
Don't sever what you are for what you couldn't be

You'll find it in the veil of night where solitude is born
In the emptiness of broken flesh, at the mercy of the thorns
You'll find it in the veil of night where solitude is born
In the emptiness of broken flesh, at the mercy of the thorns

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs on the new album. :D

    To me, this is about someone who spent their lives in their own fantasy world where everyone hates them because they aren't "good enough". Filled with constant depression they finally thought of committing suicide as a way to end their pain.

    "Where the words of now forgotten love
    Fall silent in the dark"
    I believe this is taken as saying that she once walked with God and stuff, but now completely ignores Him. Either that or the friends around her.

    At the end when he mentions "sleeping through your own eulogy" it tends to mean that everyone around her loves her and wants to reach out, but she's not paying attention to any of it and retreats to her fantasy world of bitterness and hatred.
    "Don't sever what you are for what you couldn't be" seems more like he's trying to tell her that she's great the way she is and shouldn't try to be something she isn't.
