The night creeps through my bones with a winter's chill, sending shivers down my spine
Like cold hands across my skin
Five months have passed and taken with them every sense of warmth
Until my blood ran cold and life stood still
And still I hold my breath, counting the nights I've stood with my heart in hand
And still I hold my breath, counting the nights.
Waiting for silence to break me down again
If only you could see
See it in my eyes how much it means
Your touch, Your smile
To a heart thats beat has long since given out and given in
The night opens wide, swallowing every sense
Embracing me with emptiness
The hours have become irritations, and I find myself reduced to life's imitation
How can we truly say that we are alive
When everything I see in me is screaming
How can we truly say that we are alive
When everything I see in me is screaming otherwise?
It's screaming otherwise
Cause five months have passed and taken with them every sense of warmth
Until my blood ran cold and life stood still
The hours have become irritations, and I find myself reduced to life's imitation

    This song was about the length (five months) on parkways first tour to europe. When the song is refering to the girl it's winston mchall (vocals) talking about missing his girlfriend and now soon to be wife. This tour was really brutal from what their first dvd shows

    I believe this song is about a lengthy period of time (Five Months) that has passed since the girl who he thought was everything, left him.
    He feels reduced to only an imitation of life, he isn't living as he thinks he should, the hours have become irritations as every one that passes, just increases the pain and anguish inside him.
