Lady Magdelene Lyrics
He'd give you his soul if you asked him for some.
A child in his way for he needs to believe
That love is a song for each man to sing.
The man on the left is a prize unwon
A candle unlit and a song...

Yes, I believe the song is about Jesus's on the cross as a representation of us all.
I think the deeper meaning is about the person within each and everyone of us as individuals.
There is both good and bad in each of us.
And we all live somewhere in between the two nature's within.
And only God knows 'what will become of the man in between'.
Afterall, Jesus's did tell us.
I am within you.
The power of God is within you.
Is it such a silly thought ?

I believe that this song is about Jesus on the cross with the "good thief" on a cross to his right and the "unrepentant thief" on a cross to his left, and Mary Magdelene, one of Jesus' closest followers, the "apostle to the apostles", who bore witness to the crucifixion, the burial in the tomb, and being the first to proclaim "he is risen". "The me in between", as if Jesus were telling the story, telling of the two men next to him, "make a sound of silent thunder calling from the lips of Abraham", akin to the prophet Abraham, "Lady Magdelene" proclaiming the resurrection.

I think this is about the cross, and how we are all there with Him, and In Him.
Mary Magdelene is the one who announces the Resurrection.
