La Dispute – Fall Down, Never Get Back Up Again lyrics

Out where the stones lay like bones by the ocean
Out where the waves crash contempt on the land
Someone was trembling for fear of the tempest
Somebody silently reached for their hand
Said, understand that if you're cold I'll keep you warm
And besides, there's so much beauty in a storm
So come down with me to the shore
And what's more, I adore you
So tell me, what is there to fear
You think some seraph up above is trying to rob us of our love
Because the sky's not clear
My dear, you know there's not
Now listen to the rain upon the rooftop
But the wind picked up

Out where the stones stand up like thrones beside the ocean
Out where the waves make a grave of the sea
The lovers struggled in the middle of the tempest
And water angrily crawled up onto the beach
Said, hold my hand and stay with me
We'll be released
But the tide clung like an anchor to her feet
And though he tried to make the water line recede
It pulled her out into the sea
He could not break apart the waves to bring her safely back in
He watched her hand break through the surface once
Then disappear again
Forever wait inside the sea for me, my dear
I hear you
You speak in every curling wave
And sing in every violent breeze
Someday not far away from here
My dear, I swear I'll see you
And we will hear the seraphs cry
For they will still envy you and I
How they envied you and I
How they envied you and I
How they envied you and I

Fall Down, Never Get Back Up Again meanings

    I think it's about his love for a girl. Both of them are troubled with depression. She starts falling into a hole from her depression. She may have felt their relationship was doomed to fail due to both of them having depression ("You think some seraph from above is trying to rob us of our love because the sky's not clear?"). He feels their love can get them through anything. And maybe things get better. "But then the wind picked up" and her depression started getting the best of her again. This time it was worse as depicted by the much darker visual of the storm. He tried to help her through it, but she got lost in her depression, then lost her life to her depression. Now he is still alive and alone without her. "Someday not far away from here, my dear, I swear I'll see you". Soon when he dies, they will be able to be together again.
    Listen to the lyrics with this in mind. It makes sense.
