Down Like Silver – Wolves lyrics

When I die let the wolves enjoy my bones
When I die let me go
When I die let the wolves enjoy my bones
When I die let me go

When I die you can push me out to sea
When I die set me free
When I die let the sharks come 'round to feed
When I die set me free

Oh, the world is dark
And I've looked as far as I can see
When the years have torn me apart
Let me be

When I die let the flames devour me
When I die set me free
When I die throw my ashes to the breeze
When I die scatter me

Oh, the world is dark
And I've looked as far as I can see
When the years have torn me apart
Let me be
Let me be
Let me be
Let me be

Daylight is waiting for you
Daylight is waiting for you
Daylight is waiting for you
Daylight is waiting for you
Daylight is waiting for you
Daylight is waiting for you
Daylight is waiting for you
Daylight is waiting for you

    I believe this song describes death through the years, before humans buried their dead creatures would feed on them "let the wolves enjoy my bones". Eventually there we're those who believed burial at sea would set a persons soul free "push me out to sea" "set me free" and finally cremation where you turn the body to ash and most people skater their loved one, "let the flames devour me" "throw my ashes to the breeze". Just an educated guess though ;).

    This song touches a deep chord within me because I have a loved one who has suicidal thoughts. "The world is dark, and I've looked as far as I can see..." sounds way too familiar. The depressed person knows that there is daylight, but feels that it is only for others, not for him. The long suspended chords of the music express the long sadness that dwells deep inside a depressed person at all times.
