    I think this is about humanity's self destruction. The singer is "humanity", the sinking ship is "civilization", and the savior that he is asking for help from, is some "older, advanced life form" out there. Then "we are one In the same" means, that this advanced species has made the same mistakes, and has had to go through the same struggles humanity has suffered through, as a young species before finally evolving into the advanced race they have become.

    So humanity fears self annihilation from a result of Its demons, aka "corruption and greed", and of course this prediction will separate humanity Into two, skeptics and believers. But the majority will be skeptic, and blow this "extinction/self destruction" theory off as just another crazy and wild speculation, "they think Im crazy, but they don't know the feeling". So In order to stop them from giving into their greed, witch will lead them into killing each other off. The advanced race needs to come forth and inform the skeptics on what greed and corruption will eventually lead too. I'm probably making It out to be more then what It really Is lol, idk. Its just my personal theory.

    This song may possibly have something to do with bipolar disease or depression (in the sense of being uncertain of what his life may lead to).
    It's a truly beautiful song. I believe Starset did a wonderful job capturing the hidden meanings and poetry in this song!

    In my opinion not everyone has to agree. But I think the song might mean that he is suffering something and the "demons " is his sanity or voices in his head. Also there is one person in his life that he looks up to that understands and relates to him in some way were everyone else thinks he is crazy and passes on.

    Another thing is that he is asking for help if his sanity or the voices in his head take over and he hopes that the person he looks up to well help him in some sort of way and try to give him the strength to get the "demons" away and that the person is the only one he feels safe with.

    Now I just like the song and I can be TOTALLY wrong but this is my perception of this song I am not a fan this is just my interpretation of listing to the song and that's it. I hope I helped if anyone agrees with me there never that many people who do. So sorry that this is long but again hoped I helped.

    I think it's about how humanity keeps making the same mistakes over and over again due to our tendency to listen to what our demons tell us to do, and about how our demons will continue to make hell on earth until a higher life-form, dare I say Christ himself returns to sucker-punch evil in the jaw. I think that the chorus is meant to explain how without him, the human race cannot help but destroy ourselves as we become the very demons (wrath, greed, corruption, envy, etc) that plague us. In a nutshell, I think it's a warning of what will happen as this world becomes more and more consumed by evil.

    This song remind me a lot to soul in Soul Eater anime/manga and the story he learn how to deal with the demons inside his mind and his social phobia but the main character Maka always help him to hearing his heart and he not fall in madness and darkness. By the way this song is so good.
