    They could well have an entirely different meaning in mind, but it really reminds me in a way of Buddhist philosophy. The singer is lamenting being trapped in the cycle of suffering and reincarnation; they lament being "here again", as they could not "find the meaning" that would free their soul from its chains. And it seems they regret the evil they have caused in the past existences that kept them trapped here in the realm of desire.
    Specifically the sorrow is brought on by the fact that someone he cared about, this Jillian has passed on (possibly to nirvana, or at least another life), and he cannot join her in his current mode of existence.
    Of course, I'm probably way overanalyzing things.
