Song Description

An intense exploration of the emotions one would feel in the face of his own mortality. This could be considered almost as three songs in one, tied together by the common narrative.

Lyrics

You're gone
You're lost in a world of your own design
Alone,
Humanity's long since been left behind

And would you believe that I once felt your pain?
(Although it's far behind me now)
It seems so strange to me that in pain you still believe

And I see a light ahead
A template for all my ambitions
Life lays bare before
Meaning disinterred
I'm welcoming my liberation

Moral,
You call me what you will and cast me away
I know
And in the depth of my ignorance I'm not afraid

And would you believe that I once felt your pain?
It seems so strange to me that in pain you still believe

And I see a light ahead
A template for all my ambitions
As a new day dawns
On an empty world
I'm welcoming my liberation

I'm alone in the world
A husk fading petty and destined
And I stay my mind
From futile tries at
Reaching for exoneration

I'm lost in the stars above
Consumed in my reflection
Distracted from my condemnation
They join me in consciousness

I can't
Remember a time when days flickered
Like their cold light
Care passed like season
And love was free of all reason.

My reason is as trivial as senses pervaded by a final nostalgic scent
I inhale once more
Knowing the dreams I won't live don't matter

(Leave It Behind)
