Cure For The Enemy Lyrics

Time drifts through the sky
Without a reason why
We walk past the flowers
Don't stop for a breath
Until they're above our heads

We used to fight
Have we made amends?
Father I just can't tell
Watching you spent the time you have left
Trapped in a cold blue bed

In darkness we'll rest
Count the days down to one last breath
In darkness we'll rest
So forgive what you can't forget

We said that we would call
but we never spoke at all
The years drifted by
We've built up these walls
for reasons that seem so small
If this is the end, let's bury the past
this might be our one last chance
Together until the last grain of sand
has dropped from the hourglass

So open your eyes
open your eyes and don't forget to pray
If we lose the fight
if we lose the fight your sprit will live through me
It's time we make right
it's time we make right the pages of history
Until we find
Until we find a cure for the enemy

All those you've loved
All those who've died
All we have left is what lives in our minds
All those you've loved
All those who've died
I know their spirits are up in the sky

All those you've loved
All those who've died
All we have left is what lives in our minds
All those you've loved
All those who've died
I know their spirits are up in the sky

So open your eyes
open your eyes and don't forget to pray
If we lose the fight
if we lose the fight your sprit will live through me
It's time we make right
it's time we make right the pages of history
Until we find
Until we find a cure for the enemy

In darkness we'll rest
Count the days down to one last breath
In darkness we'll rest
So forgive what you can't forget

(In darkness we'll rest)
All those you've loved
(Count the days down to one last breath)
All those who've died
All we have left is what lives in our minds
(In darkness we'll rest)
All those you've loved
(So forgive what you can't forget)
All those who've died
I know their spirits are up in the sky

In darkness we'll rest

Just from knowing the lyrics I would agree with DFowke. Anyway, this is a truly great song, very touching.

Ben said in a interview that the lyrics were written about the loss of relatives and loved ones to cancer. 'cure for the enemy' with the enemy being cancers of all varieties. Definitely one of the more emotional songs on the album.

I believe that he is singing about him and his fathers relationship and how he wants to fix it before his father dies or it is beyond fixing
