How will this pan out?
Search and wish, so loud
Keep a candle burning
To each his own should learn

Before I turn in envy, I learn through sorrow
I turn in envy and go, to the wall

See how the colors run,
And feel your Sunday rest
Give me a name, bring it in, some change is for the best
I may not win the race
I may not reach the top
Or I may not live your way;
It doesn't mean I'm stuck here
We may not fit the mold
Kind of going off well,
The medicine inside takes a stronger hold

As we turn in envy, I learn through sorrow
I turn in envy and go, to the wall

Before I burn with envy, I learn through sorrow
I burn with envy and go, to the wall

To the wall
To the wall
To the wall
To the wall
To the wall
To the wall
To the wall

If turn in envy, I learn through sorrow
I turn in envy and go, to the wall

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!? How are we supposed to easily try to interpret the lyrics without them?

    Fine, here are the lyrics!

    How will this pan out
    Search and wish so lout
    Keep a candle burning
    To each his own should live

    Before I turn in envy
    I learn through sorrow
    I turn in envy
    And go to the wall

    See how the colors run
    And feel your Sunday rest
    Give me a name
    Bring it in
    Some change is for the best
    I may not win the race
    I may not reach the top
    Or I may not live your way
    Doesn't mean I'm stuck here
    We may not fit the mold
    Kind of going off
    Well, the medicine inside
    Takes a stronger hold

    As we
    Turn in envy
    I learn through sorrow
    I turn in envy
    And go to the wall
    Before I burn with envy
    I learn through sorrow
    I burn with envy
    And go to the wall
    To the wall
    To the wall

    Before I turn in envy
    I learn through sorrow
    I burn with envy
    And go
    To the wall

    My OpinionThere literally could not be a better theme song for John Snow.

    My Interpretationenvy involves jealousy and wanting to conform to some ideal or lifestyle. this leads to conflict with one's self. instead, accept who you are and just be. "to each his own should live"

    My OpinionLike most songs this one stems from relationships.

    Turn in envy
    I learn through sorrow
    I turn in envy

    After being jealous for being left for someone else, one has to go through sorrow to experience life, and then the way he drags out the word sorrow represents how he goes through sorrow for ever before knowing what to do envy and the endless cycle of it. Relative to banging your head against a brick wall.
