All our blood lying on the floor
Sense the crowd expecting something more
Opened up, proudly on display
What we tried so hard to hide away

Blinding light illuminates the scene
Try to fill "The Spaces In Between"

Arms entwined in a final pose
Narrative drawing to a close
Still remain the things we couldn't kill
In your eyes I can see it still

How we choose the framing of the scene
Hate begins to spill across the screen

Blinding light illuminates the scene
Try to fill The Spaces in Between

    General CommentI think this song is about being a musician/artist and being onstage. Performing art is a very vulnerable thing. You open up your personal inner world "proudly on display." It's about how you can create something so meaningful and personal that perfectly expresses your emotions/thoughts/etc.. yet, the crowd/audience/fans still want more. It's like your dying on stage every night, but this is precisely what you live for. Hence, the spaces in between. The spaces in between are all the moments not onstage. Those moments can begin to be less fulfilling and empty. "The things we couldn't kill" refers to the content of the actual song/art, because often times it is about something hurtful from your past, sometimes things which you have overcame or moved on from, and you are re-opening the wounds of you past. Your past may be dead to you in that it may no longer bother you, but you can never escape it when you are re-creating it again and again every night. Either that or some variation of Joe K's comment is right.
