A Car, A Torch, A Death Lyrics

The air begins to feel a little thin
As I start the car and then I begin
To add the miles piled up behind me
I barely feel a smile deep inside me

And I begin to envy the headlights driving south
I want to crack the door so I can just fall...

    He gets in a car wreck and sees a vision of god? Idk... It says I begin to understand why god died, so that kind of screws with my theory, but idk...

    The air begins to feel a little thin
    (He's realizing what's he's doing dispite the consequence)
    As I start the car and then I begin
    To add the miles piled up behind me (he drives to escape something he knows he can't)
    I barely feel a smile deep inside (even deep down, he knows he ant help her)

    And I begin to envy the headlights driving south (he wants to go back, And save her)
    I want to crack the door so I can just fall out (he wants to die)
    But then I remember when you packed my car (he remembers what she has done for him)
    You reached in the back and buckled up your heart
    (she gave him her heart)

    For me to drive away with
    (he still has her heart and loves her as well)
    I began to understand
    Why God died
    (He starts to understand his faith)

    The demon sat there waiting on her porch (the demon is waiting)
    It was a little dark so he held a makeshift torch
    And when my car was far out of sight
    He crept in her room and stayed there for the night (when he leaves, the demon effects the girl as she sleeps. Meaning she is dealing with depression)

    [2x]
    And then I felt chills in my bones
    The breath I saw was not my own
    I knew my skin that wrapped my frame
    Wasn't made to play this game
    (He realized that he wasn't ready to face demons)
    And then I saw Him, torch in hand
    He laid it out, what he had planned
    And then I said, I'll take the grave
    Please, just send them all my way
    (He is willing to take his life if the girl no longer has demons)

    I began to understand
    Why God died

    The air begins to feel a little thin
    As we're waiting for the morning to begin (he is waiting for demon to leave)
    But for now you told me to hold this jar
    And when I looked inside, I saw
    It held your heart
    (He still has heart even though she's is gone and dead, her not surviving her demons and taking her life)

    For me to walk away with
    I began to understand
    Why God died
    (He is willing to face her death, knowing she loved him)

    -Kristy
