In Flames – Where The Dead Ships Dwell lyrics

Big picture slowly fades, walls are closing in,
And there I was cursing the ground, unable to understand.

I won't let the world break me, so I need to change direction.
Nothing special and far from perfect! Light the way for me.

(I won't say I'm sorry, I got what I deserve...)

Feel I was running an endless mile!
Last candle burns and I'm dying inside!
All of this will turn to ash, a change for a peace of mind.

Walking where the dead ships dwell,
These are shores I left behind.
Streets were getting smaller and I had to leave!

Feel I was running an endless mile!
Last candle burns and I'm dying inside!
All of this will turn to ash, a change for a peace of mind.

All I hear is noise, hearts of false hope.
Guess I took it for granted.
I know I went too far, I won't say I'm sorry.
I got what I deserve, I got what I deserve!

Feel I was running an endless mile!
Last candle burns and I'm dying inside!
All of this will turn to ash, a change for a peace of mind!

Feel I was running an endless mile!
Last candle burns and I'm dying inside!
All of this will turn to ash, a change for a peace of mind.

    From a Buddhist perspective, the dead ships are delusions you held about the future that no longer work. Had dreams of marrying a girl and she died? The thoughts, desires, imaginings of this unrealized future becomes like a ship, and as you imagine what will happen, it sails beautifully though the ocean. Once that ship can no longer sail, it dies and washes up on the shores of the landscape of your mind, between the land, forebrain and consciousness, and the ocean, the subconscious. As the ships pile up on the shore, something has to change.
