Serenity Lyrics

Play "Serenity"
on Amazon Music

As I sit here and slowly close my eyes
I take another deep breath
And feel the wind pass through my body
I'm the one in your soul
Reflecting inner light
Protect the ones who hold you
Cradling your inner child

I need serenity
In a place...

    My interpretation of the song is about heroin. When you close ur eyes, you do feel wind paat through ur body. And The part wherebit sings “Tragic visions slowly stole my life
    Tore away everything
    Cheating me out of my time”
    That’s exactly what the drug does. As an ex addict you find “serenity” in a place u can hide, nothing changes days go by as the song sings. Your days are wasted by seeking serenity in a drug that cheats you out of your time.

    Fact is this was written for the drummer of the band Rush who lost his daughter and wife to death within a year his daughter in a tragic car accident and his wife to cancer Please get your facts straight and quit revolving everything around religion

    This song is actually religious in theme. Sully Erna is a Wiccan, (as evident by the Wiccan Rede of "An' It Harm None, Do What Thou Will" being the band's headline on their myspace page) and this song is about the meditation that the religion emphasizes.

    The song itself is about the release of negative energy, "tragic visions," things in his life that repeatedly make him despair. Through inner peace with himself, serenity, he releases it.

    The flame going cold symbolizes Sully's doubt in his faith, and it's an open question, "how do you find your faith when the world shows you so much ****?"

    I attended their 'Other Side' concert in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and they said that the song has to do with the drummer or lead singer for Rush (whom Sully is a big fan of) who had lost some members of his family and instead of turning to drugs, bought a Harley and rode around the U.S. for a year trying to overcome his grief.
