With this ink in our skin we've sealed our fate,
And the axe comes early
(Only naturally) So what does that matter?
There's a bed of skeletons waitin' for me,
On the other side
They're waiting for my next move (Next fatal breath)
Human lives to me seem so unreal, you can't see
Through the fog
(Nothing past the grey wall) see past the stereotype
Belief, structure built up in you
I'll tear you down, and the One who created you

If they didn't have One how would they act?
If we didn't have hope how would we behave?
Would they still feel remorse
If they slaughtered innocent beings?
Or is hope the only thing that keeps you sane?

A good friend once told me you are memory
Without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
Their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down
But keep away from me.. keep away from me[x4]

(It's hard to keep me in this place, keep away from me)

We may have created the beginning, mentally
We may have created the beginning, physically
To the end of our human existence..

I see through you
The fear that's in your eyes

A good friend once told me we are memory
Without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Timeless, my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
Their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down - confused
I don't know the answers, but neither do you

    I absolutely love this song. It's about how having faith, hope and memories are the only things that truely keep people sane.

    Its about how life seems terrible and so hard for most people and we wonder why we have to live through it all, but remembering good times having hope and faith can keep people going and living. Memories and are friends or family can keep us alive and show us not to quit.
