about

This song can be taken as a song change from who we become when anger and hate become our only mentality or motive after a loss, and then we have to resolve that within ourselves. So that we don't live out Seperate Lives, or we aren't split into another angry, sad, and lonely being. This song is the actuation or acting on of the realization discovered in "Brittle Bones". The perspective is like that of one having a conversation with their "Seperate Lives" within themselves and struggling with something throughout the chorus, and a more of a direct conversation or prayer to God in the verses. The comments or things directed at God are emphasized in the capitalization of "You" in the lyrics. If it's not capitalized then it is referencing the person who passed away or one's self.

lyrics

Take another step your almost there.

Just another mistake away from regretting everything.

I can only hope that one day I will see your face again.

I can’t stand the type of person that I am without You.

Just remember that I can always come back.

I'm putting away this filthy life that I've called home.
Sick of the filth that I have wallowed in.
Naming destitution my closest friend,
prostituting my heart to

Separate Lives.

Now I can see this for what it is - I've been torn between life and death,
but by no will of my own could I find life.

Sinking deep into my heart is the daunting knowledge that there is no longer a home for me here.

I apologize for what I have become.

Images of betrayal have burned my eyes, setting in motion

memories that I could never forget.

I was once a slave to my flesh, but I fought to be done with my old master.
I never realized I had no strength to win.
Before You, I never knew

that peace was deafening.

I never knew freedom was a truth for me.

I pour my heart into selfish passions with destructive ends, but
You refused to leave my side, bearing

New Solace.

Take another step you're almost there.
Just another mistake away from regretting everything.
I can only hope that one day I will see your face again.
I can’t stand the type of person that I am without You.
Just remember that I can always come back.

Did we plant that seed?
Did those people see?
Will we ever see you again?

I'm so sorry I only think about myself...
