Eruptions of fire and stone all around
They fill the air and shake the ground
And it's proving impermanence
The tortured landscape leaves nothing will be left alive

Bury my remains
Under ashes falling on my grave
Make me whole again
Give me the sight to see Your ends

Bury my remains
Cover up this body in decay
Make me whole again
Paint me on a brand new canvas

Not far from here, a place prepared
Can't find my way, send up a flare
Open the sky, show me the way through twilight

Bury my remains
Under ashes falling on my grave
Make me whole again
Give me the sight to see Your ends

Bury my remains
Cover up this body in decay
Make me whole again
Paint me on a brand new canvas

Even now I see a spark in the distance
A flicker of hope for peace and silence

This span is so hostile, won't last forever
This path through struggle will make me stronger
This span so hostile, won't last forever
This path through struggle will make me stronger

Bury my remains
Under ashes falling on my grave
Make me whole again
Give me the sight to see Your ends

Bury my remains
Cover up this body in decay
Make me whole again
Paint me on a brand new canvas

Bury my remains
Under ashes falling on my grave
Make me whole again

Bury my remains
Cover up this body in decay
Make me whole again
Paint me on a brand new canvas

    My InterpretationCry of the Afflicted is definitely a Christian band and their songs are very prominent when discussing Heaven, renewal of the soul, and struggles in life. Here is my interpretation through each part in the song:

    "Eruptions of fire and stone all around
    They fill the air and shake the ground
    And it's proving impermanence,
    the tortured landscape heaves
    Nothing will be left alive"

    Interpretation:
    I assume that the band is talking about how much of a devastated state the world is in because of sin. Ultimately the sin we have will lead to our deaths.

    "Not far from here, a place prepared
    Can't find my way, send up a flare
    Open the sky,
    show me the way through twilight"

    Interpretation:
    I agree with AudioGlaive with this section. The band is definitely referring to Heaven. When the band mentions that it is "not far from here" He is implying that everyone has a chance to reach Heaven, it only takes one step if they want to take it (repentance of sin and following Christ). "Can't find my way, send up a flare" is another way showing the struggles during a Christians walk with Christ. He is asking God to illuminate his path so that he knows the right (righteous) way he needs to go. "Open the sky" to open Heaven, and show him what he needs to do.

    "Even now I see a spark in the distance
    A flicker of hope for peace and silence
    This span so hostile, won't last forever
    This path through struggle will make me stronger"

    Interpretation:
    The band is talking about finding hope through the struggles of life by following the "spark" and "flicker" (a reference to Jesus and the hope He brings). Then he mentions that the world (or the "span so hostile") isn't going to last forever and that he will overcome it. This is pretty literal and very strong words of having courage through desperate times.

    "Bury my remains
    under ashes falling on my grave
    Make me whole again
    give me the sight to see Your ends
    Bury my remains, cover up this body in decay
    Make me whole again,
    paint me on a brand new canvas"

    Interpretation:
    "Bury my remains" refers to God burying his sinful body, under all the sins that he may still be committing ("ashes falling on my grave")."Make me whole again" in other words, to renew his soul. "Give me the sight to see Your ends" means that he does not want to follow his own path to his own end, but God's path, to see the ending He wants for the singer (Heaven). He repeats himself and then he asks God to "paint [him] on a brand new canvas" meaning that he wants to be placed on a new slate; become born again as a new Christian.

    Hope this helps. God bless. :)
