about

The Resurrection is a story of personal redemption coinciding with a comment on people's actions following tragedy and loss. The Christ comparison was the obvious metaphor, but the depth of the plot lies in broken love, egomania and the social ramifications of both put together. The song questions if we should be putting ourselves on pedestals in times of loss as many people often do, and wonders what social demons come from such attitudes. The song was briefly performed with Flowers For Lily but fell quickly into disuse due to performance lengths and a shift in genre.

Also available on 'C Side Volume 1: Dark Waters'

lyrics

Into the furnace of regret falls your ever after
With this the loss of all your kin seems like no disaster
Time is nothing when you're left with nothing more to master
So listen unto what they said the last time you were higher

Into the mourning there you roam no-one stays to take you home
All to the dawning of desire they will be waiting on you
Until you walk alone with more knowing what you run from
There'll be no resurrection

Here's silence and dismay you are not the fire
Unto the mourners you will be just another liar
If someone else could help you they would appear anile
Only one thing left for you the pain of cold denial

Into the mourning there you roam no-one stays to take you home
All to the dawning of desire they will be waiting on you
Until you walk alone with more knowing what you run from
There'll be no resurrection

To what kind of world have we given birth
Where demons grieve for God
To what kind of world have we given birth
Where demons bleed for God

Into the mourning there you roam no-one stays to take you home
All to the dawning of desire they will be waiting on you
When the sun is in your face and if you hide beyond disgrace
When they leave you on the shore you will never love no more
Until the resurrection
