This track is kind of a concept track lyrically, almost along the lines of misery loves company..

It's basically about being so lonely and so helpless that it feels like those feelings almost have a life of their own and you struggle to see past it.


Sing to me Misery, sing me to sleep
The imagery subtle, the melody sweet
Chance just one dance with me, Misery please
Or drown me in sympathy

All the loneliness weighs on heart
All the differences that make us feel worlds apart
Just sing for me, Misery
I'm suffering endlessly
We sleep for the dreams that we keep

She said "Give me your anguish, your burden, your fear
And I'll tear the pain from your world
All of th eworries that weigh on your soul
All of the lonely stones removed
Because it's the loneliness that's killing you

And this taste for distaste
All of the life I've bestowed
The distaste for this hate
To live in a world we don't know

She'll place her loving arms
Against the world against us
Inspiriting eyes, inspiring minds
She'll place her loving arms
Against the woes, against us
Smiting in time, our gratuitous pride

Sing to me, Misery
So I can find peace in this hole
And so in time, her sweet, subtle smile
Will mirror the tears that we've learnt to let go
