Oh and yet, I've been cleansed.

And yet I've been cleansed with the water.
A purity no mind can grasp.
A purity so cool upon my fingertips.

The vision that I have seen.
This is the action that spawns from the end.
For the longest time, I've been watching the world breathe again

What lies here.
What lies here,
Are mountains composed of tombs, tombstones, tombstones, tombstones.

Examine these beautiful faces, keep singing now, keep singing now.
Examine these beautiful faces, keep singing now.
Examine these beautiful faces. Oh.

Will we push bedlam noise to the state of blissfulness?
Display her beauty to the people, to the people. Oh.

A purity no mind can grasp.

    I believe that the song is really about a baptism and the beauty it can bring into your eyes after it is done...

    But the video brings a whole different meaning into my head. In the video, the old man represents God, and the bugs are, well, the not so pretty people of this world. He's putting the diamonds, or the brightest of beauty, inside them to keep them safe when the people come in. The people represent the Devil and they are trying to find the beauty to turn it evil. But as does everyone else in the world today, they overlook the outside of the bugs, not even thinking they could be there. This proves the point that most mean people look at the outside, not the inner beauty..

    So, I think... "Beauty really does lie within." :)

    Its about baptism I knew but it's about Jesus's baptism,

    "and yet I've been cleansed"
    baptised by the water

    "I've been watching the world breath again"
    Jesus has been watching the world "for the longest time"

    I love this SOO much. To me this is saying so many people are dieing, dieing and going where they'd then wish they'd never be. And him, he is saying to be saved will escape you from the world. A 'burning' world. A sinful world of darkness.

    THis song is about being baptized."Oh and yet, I've been cleansed" waiting to be and then becoming baptized into faith. "And yet ive been cleansed with the water" being cleaned from original sin and mike hranica wrote alot about purity in this song. nothing to do wit suicide
