""Darkness is ignorance Knowledge is light Fight only with yourself Or the shadows of the night Darkness is ignorance Knowledge is light Fight only with yourself Or the shadows of the night For this life will break you Years will wear you down Wear you down And every day you die a little Until the shadows will take you Shadows will take you ... Dying doesn't make this world dead to us Breathing doesn't keep the flame alive in us Dreaming doesn't make time less real for us One life one chance all ephemeral Ephemeral ... Darkness is ignorance Knowledge is light Fight only with yourself Or the shadows of the night All the pain and suffering will dispirit or feed you dispirit or feed you For each and every time your failures will craft you When the fear of them is gone fear is gone Dying doesn't make this world dead to us Breathing doesn't keep the flame alive in us Dreaming doesn't make time less real for us One life one chance all ephemeral (Solo) We stumble and hover at the edge of the world Edge of the world One life one chance that's all we have That's all we have ... Never walk away Turn your back on yourself Back on yourself One life one chance that's all we have ... Dying doesn't make this world dead to us Breathing doesn't keep the flame alive in us Dreaming doesn't make time less real for us One life one chance all ephemeral Ephemeral""

    General CommentEphemeral isn't a word many know (including myself, before I looked it up). The definition is something that lasts a very short time. Pertaining to this song, life itself is being referred to. This is actually a surprisingly motivational song.

    In regards to the chorus:

    "Dying doesn't make this world dead to us": Inevitable future death doesn't mean this world should be dead to you. Don't focus on the eventual end, focus on the journey.

    "Breathing doesn't keep the flame alive in us": your dreams aren't just going to be handed to you on a platter. Seek them out. Kindle your flame.

    "Dreaming doesn't make time less real for us": Time is an inevitability. It's real. It's ticking. And it's short. Dreaming about your goals won't change this.

    "One life, one change, ephemeral": You only get one life, one chance. Life is very ephemeral--very short. So take advantage of the time you have.
