Wake for Young Souls

Album: Out of the Vein (2003)

  • Lyrics
  • This song is about loss of a friend, and growing up. The aura of the song is light-hearted, like that is how he wants his friend to be remembered, but it is really a sad song. The singer knows that he has grown up and away from all of his friends but knows there is nothing he can do about it except move on and live life: "Truth is natural like the wind that blows, follow its direction no matter where it goes" shows that he knows he can't turn back time and change the way things happened. "Let the truth blow like a hurricane through me" shows that he wouldn't have it any other way. >>
