"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 CommentWow, this is one of my fav. songs by them ever. it really hit home in so many ways with me. I was a cutter back before it seemed like a popular trend and I can remember the pain and emptiness it brought, here is what the song said to me:

    Bitter thoughts became your every waking breath
    Save the night your hallow dreams revealed
    The sweet release of death
    In your thoughts you played a symphony of self
    But your soul had bled a darker song
    With close to nothing left

    This part makes me remember and think of a person who is so consumed with self, so empty and broken inside they cannot see God, they are are wanting death but life at the same time, I picture a cutter sitting on his/her bedroom floor, bleeding crying and feeling alone.

    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


    I think here is when the person really starts to realize that God can free them, deliver them from thier blade and flame, and it isn't in a church, or some great revival but it is alone, in the midst of solitude and brokeness that they truly find God and his loving power for them, I just see victory in those verses, release and freedom.


    Every line of path
    Into an empty heart
    Where the words of now forgotten love
    Fall silent in the dark
    Sister
    Don't you sleep through your own eulogy
    Don't sever what you are for what you couldn't

    Here I just see a looking back on what was and remembering not to give up but to stay strong.
