Long is the night you sleep with dreams of desperation
Poor is the mind you have when used in calculation
And worse the life you'll get when cheated by desires
It's hard to leave your chains of shining gold and artful diamonds
I've seen this child inside you, Hiding and fearing the cold
I feel your pain inside me And bring you cure from the old
No mind no devotion In life no possession
Inside no religion Like a lion in the jungle
Now is the only time, here is the only place
Meant to be flying in esir like an eagle
Strong is the armour that you've built to save you from your past
And cool is the mask you wear that serves you to fulfil your lust
But know the games you play are made of lies and false illusions
You better leave them now 'cause all will turn to dust in your hands
I've seen this child inside you, Hiding and fearing the cold
I feel your pain inside me And bring you cure from the old
No mind no devotion In life no possession
Inside no religion Like a lion in the jungle
Now is the only time, here is the only place
Meant to be flying in esir like an eagle

    It is shedding skin away from materialistic goods and finding your inner self

    A lot like a "Find Yourself, Discover God" in a way...

    "No mind no devotion, in life no possession Inside no religion, like a lion in the jungle"

    This is about who you are...

    "Now is the only time, here is the only place Meant to be flying in Esir like an eagle"

    ...and this is what you should be. At least this is what I gather...I don't know where Mezarkabul stands on this ideological issue.

    Btw esir means aether. It sounds like "eagle in nothingness" to me...

    And, imho, mezarkabul's songs are NOT about religion, but they are always thought as satanist, or none believer etc etc...

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
