I've been a victim to the blade against myself
Bloodletting all of my soul
Suck in, paralyzed in this vortex
Reduced to silence
In the dark I've lingered too long
This sharpened axe, beam of light
I reach for and I master
Wield against these shadows
It's purpose now revealed in silence
Keep searching, question if this light ends
Now I will strike and dig with precision
Introspective eye, erase the concept
I lost my fears and the notion of time
I healed my sorrow
All boundaries are illusion
When you reach the center light
And reinforce the striking power
By chance you're followed
It's purpose now revealed in silence
Keep searching, question if this light ends
All ghosts dwelling in, inside, in the heart
I see them all, release their shadow

    He is madly in love with a girl that contantly gives him the cold shoulder. So much in fact that he looses his cool in the back of a cab while pursuing her. She drops him off in a taco-time parking where he sits and dwells on a few concrete steps. He finally learns how to play guitar "The Axe" and is able to express to her finally in a meaningful way of how he feels about her. This song is about me.

    It's a story of struggle. He's sick of the constant sorrow and despair and the axe, death, seems like the good way out. The same sorrows keep spinning him around in a cycle of fortune and despair.
