The Pinnacle Lyrics
Come and do my bidding now for I have grown too weak
My weary eyes have seen all that life can give
Come to me, O young one, for you I can forgive
I stood where no man goes, and conquered demon...
anonymous Dec 3rd report
It may seem like a song about a beaten and tired conqueror, but I believe it SO much more. To me it is about most of us that try and follow a spiritual path or simply those of us that are flowing inevitably toward the end of our journey. We experience our triumphs and we find comfort in our good deeds... we stumble and crash and our humanness and desire for things only of this world cause us shame and almost unbearable loss and guilt. Our mark of Cain. And what we saw as our attempt to rise above only results in a hero's broken blade. Yet it only takes one gleaming moment to see and hear the Voice that assures us, in a sweet refrain, that there will definitely be so much more beyond our tomb,,, a chance to rid ourselves of Cain's scar and an opportunity to tear away the heart of doom. We ultimately lose the life we have here but when we stand where no mortal man goes and are filled with the Spirit's grace, we see on awe that which we couldn't see by ourselves.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

I believe Livgren is expressing the weariness of life and the way it brakes you down. I believe he is crying out to God and/or searching for Him
