And I write this to you my dear
For your eyes alone
I'm out of heart and these tanks are low
So cast your days to flame
And set your phoenix to flight
Let her turn to ash
Among those flourescent lights
Let your love drift deeper
Let her wings catch the sky
Just remember my name, girl
And remember what died

    General CommentThis is the first sign of feeling better about the bad relationship on the cd "Jane Doe." In the next song on the cd, "Phoenix in Flames" its all shot down.

    General CommentAhhhh, it makes more sense now, I never really thought of it as a concept album...but it ties the lyrics from the title track much better.

    General CommentJane Doe still loves him, in some way or another. The Phoenix represents this love. He is asking her to move on, to let her love burn out completely. Then it will be reborn, she'll love someone else as she loved him. And in the end all he wants is for her to remember him, and what they had.

    General Commentman now i get it
    this cd is all for a girl
    jane doe is the name given to an unknown women
    man converge is so good
    and this song is so good cuz of the
    clean sad vocals and guitars in the end
    are so cool

    General CommentThis is the most entrancing song i've ever heard

    just genius guitar work here

    overall converge's most elegantly beautiful song while still remaining heavy as hell

    just brilliant
