Boxing shadows in my sleep
It's the company I keep
The perfect exercise
As I grow older

I can't believe what God has done
He took the heat out of the sun
And now it seems the world
Is growing colder

Between the pleasure and the pain
Wishing your life away
No more sinister than sane
Briefing your life away
Between the flicker and the flame
No one can explain
Baby blue is born again

I'm looking for some place to go
Sucking out screams in stereo
Before my bare eyes
I saw her drowning

Keep my daughter in a jar
She can't get out she won't go far
My heart is in my mouth
But still keep pounding

Between the pleasure and the pain
Wishing your life away
No more sinister than sane
Briefing your life away
Between the flicker and the flame
No one can explain
Baby blue is born again

Between the pleasure and the pain
Wishing your life away
No more sinister than sane
Briefing your life away
Between the flicker and the flame
No one can explain
Baby blue is born again

    My OpinionOverall, I think it is about abortion.

    Boxing shadows in my sleep
    It's the company I keep
    The perfect exercise
    As I grow older

    - The guilt grows as she gets older and fights her demons

    I can't believe what God has done
    He took the heat out of the sun
    And now it seems the world
    Is growing colder

    - The realization of what she has done has crept in. Guilt, depression.

    Between the pleasure and the pain
    Wishing your life away

    - Living a carefree life, we unknowingly often wish our life away (I wish this was over! or I can't wait until next Friday!)

    No more sinister than sane
    Briefing your life away

    - The thought of living free and unburdened seems ideal.

    Between the flicker and the flame
    No one can explain
    Baby blue is born again

    - Life can change in the blink of an eye (between the flicker and the flame). Pregnant again.

    I'm looking for some place to go
    Sucking out screams in stereo
    Before my bare eyes
    I saw her drowning

    - Got to gid rid of the pregnancy, found a clinic that does abortions...

    Keep my daughter in a jar
    She can't get out she won't go far
    My heart is in my mouth
    But still keep pounding

    - How some abortion clinics keep the fetus to sell, stem cell, etc. She can't believe she did it.

    I may be off base but that's what I thought of when I heard the song.
