I, I see the weight of hollow death residing in you
Take now your final breath
Exhale the truth
I see the fear of nothing left
Dead fragments of youth
You hold it in yourself
I feel it too

I mourn your blindness
I die along
And swallow darkness
In misery is where I belong

Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why I try (I try)
Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why you deny

I, I know the light is burning dim and dying in you
I know the pain that lies within
I feel it too

I mourn your blindness
I die along
And swallow darkness
In misery is where I belong

Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why I try (I try)
Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why you deny

Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why I try (I try)
Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why you deny

Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why I try (I try)
Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why you deny

    I would say this is about someone trying to help someone out of a dark place. And them trying to help is causing them to be in a constent stage if misery. So he is now trying to stop helping.

    It is a song about god always being with you, no matter what pain, darkness, or depression you go through... God is with you and he feels your pain as his own.

    Collapsing, is a song for those people who were blinded (not physically). I like the part "i mourn your blindness i die along and swallow darkness
    in misery is where i belong"
    lots of people not only the unbelievers/anti-christ are suffering from blindness, even the people who are proclaiming that they are in christ or they are with god but actually they didn't what's the truth. The song is amazing also it's music

    This is someone who is blinded by the world that surrounds them, without even realizing; (this could be in many forms. Love, drugs, abuse, etc. )
    being too blind to see the damage being done, and the hurt it is causing (weather to them-self or the people that surrounds them); this is someone who only knows how to move/live in the misery that is is the now/pain... Eventually it all adds up... And
    collapses in on one...

    I think its about somebody's faith in god fading and they are falling into darkness, or collapsing in on themselves. He is witnessing it, trying to help, and dying with them in the process.
