Dead star shine
Light up the sky
I'm all out of breath
My walls are closing in
Days go by
Give me a sign
Come back to the end
The shepherd of the damned

I can feel you falling away

No longer the lost
No longer the same
And I can see you starting to break
I'll keep you alive
If you show me the way
Forever - and ever
The scars will remain
I'm falling apart
Leave me here forever in the dark

Daylight dies
Blackout the sky
Does anyone care?
Is anybody there?
Take this life
Empty inside
I'm already dead
I'll rise to fall again

I can feel you falling away

No longer the lost
No longer the same
And I can see you starting to break
I'll keep you alive
If you show me the way
If you show me the way
Forever - and ever
The scars will remain
I'm falling apart
Leave me here forever in the dark

God help me I've come undone
Out of the light of the sun
God help me I've come undone
Out of the light of the sun

I can feel you falling away

No longer the lost
No longer the same
And I can see you starting to break
I'll keep you alive
If you show me the way
Forever - and ever
The scars will remain

Give me a sign
There's something buried in the words
Give me a sign
Your tears are adding to the flood
Just give me a sign
There's something buried in the words
Give me a sign
Your tears are adding to the flood
Just give me a sign
There's something buried in the words
Give me a sign
Your tears are adding to the flood

Forever - and ever
The scars will remain

    I lost my Dad a week ago to a horrible lung desease. We kinda watched him deteriorate over the last few months. He was a very strong person, and never smoked a day in his life. For awhile into the madness the doctors thought there was hope and we just keep waiting for some sort of sign he was getting better. At that time the song had a different meanging. Now that he is gone I am waiting for some kinda of sign that he is still here and is happy where he is. It kinda seems this song describes exactly how I feel right now.

    Great song! Breakin' Ben is amazing! I think if you didn't already think when he says " god help me i've come undone, out of the light of the sun" sun maybe meant to be spelled son as in the light of god's son Jesus? Just a thought and another reason I think this is he says "there's something buried in the words"? Just thoughts that's what makes music great people can interpret a meaning that matches their own lives.

    I swear, without this song id probably be long gone. The first time I heard it I was completely flipped out and hurt but then I heard this and I thought it through and the person who knew how much pain I was in lead me to see that I need to get to my feet. Right before I. He called and said I love you, I need you, I'm sorry. And since then I'm engaged and happily living a better life. My fiance was my sign. :) thank you lord!

    It means to me, that sometimes there's no one in your life left. But you'll rise out of the depths of despair and go on with your life. And after all this happened you are no longer the same, as it says in the song. You're on the verge of breaking down. You asking mercy from god. You're asking god to give you a sign when things are going to get better. After everything you've been through the scars from what happened will always remain, no matter how hard you try to make it go away. When you have no one left you think 'does anybody care? ' or 'is anybody there? ' for you. Sometimes you think 'god, why me? Why did it have to be me? '. It's like there's nothing that's going to good in your life and you're asking 'why did this have to happen to me? '. It feels like you're left all alone in the dark, there's something buried in the depth's of ben's words, we just haven't figured out the correct meaning yet. Anyway, peace&love.
