Underoath – Writing On The Walls lyrics

Maybe we,
Why don't we
Sit right here for half an hour
We'll speak of what a waste I am

And how we missed the beat again!

I swear we need to find some comfort
In this run down place
To bridge the gap of this
Conscious state that we live in
And I'm short on time

How come you try
(To place us all)
And fit the shape of
(And I pray for)
What they tell you
(You to move on, move on!)
But mostly what they show you
(At this rate we can't give up)
I'm takin back all the things I've said
We're takin back all the things I've said
(But I sure can't just sit still)
Keep me filled in and I swear I'll come

We walk alone
We walk alone
We walk alone
We walk alone
We walk alone
We walk alone
Back home
Alone back home

You're almost gone and I'm okay
(I still see your shadow)
To give you time to be afraid
(But never your face again
I remember your presence)

I hope to God you come down
I hope to God you feel this now
I hope to God you come down
I hope to... God

I know there must be some way out of here
And all of them will be waiting there.

    I think this song us talking about maybe how a couple and maybe his gf has passed on and he blames himself for her death and wants, wishes, and hopes that she will come back cuz perhaps they got into an argument before she passed. I mostly think this cuz if the line that says "I still see your shadow" but idk I could be wrong, I'm just saying what I interpret from this song, it can mean numerous things and takin into many perspectives. :)
