Lyrics

Declining, all color fading
Defining, time coming for me
Rescinding my inspiration
Receding consciousness

Back in the day, I can recall that my thoughts were unclouded and sage
There was no black staining the walls of my memories
Now there’s a haze pushing me sideways and leaving me nothing to gain
Taking me back, locking me cold in disparity

Where was I meant to be ?
I feel I’m lost in a dream
Long for the day I can be myself

When I’m free, when my sun has set
Released my soul forever, I’ll have no regret
To be free, I’ll exist again
No more lost endeavors, nothing to contend
When I’m free

Color declines all that defines me is falling away, far behind
Nothing to keep me with the time, the here and now

Where am I meant to be ?
I feel I’m lost in a dream
Yearning again only to be myself

When I’m free, when my sun has set
Released my soul forever, I’ll have no regret
To be free, I’ll exist again
No more lost endeavors, nothing to contend
When I’m free

(Cure me, free me, help me, see me
No more worry, no more losing)

Time is just a concept
(Save me, near me, help me, hear me)
And always the first thing to fade
(No more heartache, no misery)
Agony and weakness
(Cure me, free me, help me, see me)
Nothing we can never evade
(No more worry, no agony)
Years are cruel, they break us
(Save me, near me, help me, hear me)
Bringing on decay and despair (We despair)
(No more heartache, no despairing)
Awareness and perception
(Cure me, free me, help me, see me)
Something we can never repair (No repair)
(No more worry, no repairing)

Freedom for me is all I’m really wanting, needing
Give me power to break out
I can’t hold on for any longer
My time has come to end it all

No one to blame, fate’s only random
It’s nothing we’ll ever explain
So it remains

Where was I meant to be ?
I feel I’m lost in a dream
Long for the day I can be myself
(Free)
When will I be unleashed ?
It’s not the way it should be
Yearning again only to be myself
(Unleash my consciousness)

When I’m free, when my sun has set
Released my soul forever, I’ll have no regret
To be free, I’ll exist again
No more lost endeavors, nothing to contend
When I’m free

Trivia

“The song is about an old man who failed or missed a lot of opportunities in life, and he’s not happy with the way things turned out. He feels that the end is near, and he will soon be free.” – Simone Simons
