You are infatuated with what consumes you.
Put the victim on the front lines and left for dead.
Stop acting like there's no... no other option
But to let the waves carry you away.

Can you hold the water responsible
For your wayward behavior,
Any more than it blames you
For it's gripping currents?
Erase the proof... erase the proof but

Your shame will remain. (5x)

Your mind is the mountain before you.
Will you always need someone to hold your hand, and talk...
Talk you through... you through the night's shadows?
It's so much easier to fight this war when you're the last in line...
When you're the last in line.

Can you hold the water... can you hold the water
Responsible for your wayward behavior,
Any more than it blames you for it's gripping currents?

What will you become? What will become of you? (2x)

Your mind is the mountain before you.
You've reached the summit, now transcend the skies. (2x)

    I think the first verse is telling the story of david and bathsheba. How david sent bathsheba's husband out to the front lines to kill him so that he could be with her. He put up no fight to the orders because he was loyal. But still david felt remorse and shamed.

    We all search for an excuse for our problems, many of them self-created, but in the end we are withouth excuse. We can't blame the world for our problems unless we in turn blame ourselves for the world's problems. When all is said and done, we stand holding the blame.
