It’s in this wake that I find myself
Losing the will to resume this Hell
When every breath is a dying wish
It’s harder to follow the point of this

This broken place that I call my home
Has deepened the sorrow that I have sown
And I can’t erase what is in my heart
I want it to finish before it starts

My own solution insufficient again
No false illusion, this devouring threat
I break the vessel, giving air to its red

And open my fate to the darkened sky

(Chorus)
I’ve been fading away
I’ve been waiting on the call to reach my veins
Ready or not
No attention to waste
Every sorrow of the soul will read my name
When I cease to exist

So now I’ve come to the final sleep
I pray that forgiveness is mine to keep
I know it’s hard to forget this man
Driving the failure into your hands

My own solution insufficient again
No false illusion, this devouring threat
I break the vessel, giving air to its red

And open my fate to the darkened sky

(Chorus)
I’ve been fading away
I’ve been waiting on the call to reach my veins
Ready or not
No attention to waste
Every sorrow of the soul will read my name
When I cease to exist

(Chorus)
I’ve been fading away
I’ve been waiting on the call to reach my veins
Ready or not
No attention to waste
Every sorrow of the soul will read my name
When I cease to exist

(Chorus)
I’ve been fading away
I’ve been waiting on the call to reach my veins
Ready or not
No attention to waste
Every sorrow of the soul will read my name
When I cease to exist

    I think it's about someone on their deathbed, busy fading away, looking back with regret at the way they spent their life.

    Its about someone when they realize that they have been doing nothing with their life, just wasting it away, just waiting for them to feel like their being called to do something.

    It means waking up to things you have done or are doing coming to grips with it and facing yourself. Realizing their is more to life then the horrible things you are doing or facing. An encountering god
