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 spend
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 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 breathe
(If we lose the fight) If we lose the fight, your spirit 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 mind
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 mind
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 breathe
(If we lose the fight) If we lose the fight, your spirit 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

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

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.
