White walls surround us,
No light will touch your face again.
Rain taps the window,
As we sleep among the dead.

Days go on forever,
But I have not left your side.
We can chase the dark together,
If you go then so will I.

There is nothing left of you,
I can see it in your eyes.
Sing the anthem of the angels,
And say the last goodbye.

Cold light above us,
Hope fills the heart and fades away.
Skin white as winter,
As the sky returns to grey.

Days go on forever,
But I have not left your side.
We can chase the dark together,
If you go then so will I.

There is nothing left of you,
I can see it in your eyes.
Sing the anthem of the angels,
And say the last goodbye.
I keep holding onto you,
But I can't bring you back to life.
Sing the anthem of the angels,
Then say the last goodbye.

You're dead alive.
You're dead alive.
You're dead alive.
You're dead alive.

There is nothing left of you,
I can see it in your eyes.
Sing the anthem of the angels,
And say the last goodbye.
I keep holding onto you,
But I can't bring you back to life.
Sing the anthem of the angels,
And say the last goodbye.

Sing the anthem of the angels,
And say the last goodbye.

Sing the anthem of the angels.

    I think its about someone who is suffering or traumatized and as the effects wear them down, the personality and essence of the person fades away, leaving an unhealthy, empty shell. Their loved one can only stay by their side and watch, remaining in love with with them but knowing they can't return the affection because they are dead inside. At the end of the song, i think the one who was suffering ended their life, and their loved one followed after. "days go on forever, but i have not left your side; we can chase the dark together, if you go, then so will i" "i keep holding on to you, but i can't bring you back to life; sing the anthem of the angels, and say your last goodbye. "

    This song is about the pain of knowing someone is hurting, but you can't do anything about it. Hence "i keep holding on to you, but i cant bring you back to life. " they're just sinking farther and farther away. "anthem of the angles" refers to praying to god and his angels and saying "i'm hurt. Nobody on earth can do anything. I need you to save me. " this is only how i take the song (seeing as i call out to god to save me from my depression quite often) but depending on which end of the bridge you're on, you may want to recommend this song to a friend.

    Could also mean someone has drastically changed to the point where that the person you have once loved/liked is metaphorically dead. Saying the last goodbye is cutting off the relation with that said person. I think the lines "you're dead alive" put this meaning into perspective quite well.

    It is about watching someone you love fade into death. Watching them deteriorate but still holding on to them. Then realizing that you have to let them go or they will not find peace.

    I think they're both dead and he's telling her to go to the light already because she seams to be misserable in their current state and he's been waiting a long time for her therefore"days go on forever"but then the light fades and hope runs away and theyre stuck like that forever.
