from: More Than This
Yesterday I died; tomorrow's bleeding
Fall into your sunlight
The future's open wide beyond believing
To know why hope dies
And losing what was found, a world so hollow
Suspended in a compromise
But the silence of this sound is soon to follow
Somehow sundown
And finding answers
Is forgetting all of the questions we call home
Passing the graves of the unknown

As reason clouds my eyes with splendor fading
Illusions of the sunlight
A reflection of a lie will keep me waiting
With love gone for so long
And this day's ending
Is the proof of time killing all the faith I know
Knowing that faith is all I hold

And I've lost who I am, (i'm waiting)
and I can't understand (and fading)
Why my heart is so broken, (and holding)
rejecting your love, (love) without, (onto these tears)
love gone wrong; lifeless words carry on (i am crying)
But I know, all I know's that the end's beginning (i'm dying tonight)
who I am from the start, (i'm waiting)
take me home to my heart (and fading)
Let me go and I will run, (and holding)
I will not be silent, (silent) all this time (onto these tears)
spent in vain; wasted years wasted gain (i am crying)
All is lost but hope remains and this war's not over (i'm dying tonight)
There's a light, there's a sun (i'm waiting...)
taking all shattered ones
To the place we belong (i am waiting...)
And his love will conquer all

Yesterday I died; tomorrow's bleeding
Fall into your sunlight

this is shattered (in David's opinion): you wake up and you don't know where you are, what time it is, how long you've been out, what happened to you last, and everything is different. the people you love are gone or changed, the things you could rely on are erased, the world you knew not only does not exist, but didn't seem to really ever exist. you just woke up from a dream to find that everything until now was the dream. think sydney bristow at the end of season two of alias waking up in hong kong, think the beginning of the flight of the navigator, think adam and eve morning one out of the garden. this song is not about the journey home, but it is about fixing your eyes to home. it is about standing up and taking the first step.
