"For Miles Down" is track two on the Hungry Lights studio album "Three Gods & Me." Remember that this is a summary, not the entire story! It is like 10% of what is actually going on—just the skeleton. It is a rough translation of what is literally going on in the lyrics. There is also a figurative story that is taking place at the same time which goes much deeper and does not involve the fictional character Prill, but that is up to you to find :) It is much easier to discover the hidden meaning when you grasp a decent understanding of the literal meaning first. These are your puzzle pieces, and I highly suggest you study them before pursuing the next albums in the sequence, otherwise emotion and information will be lost, therefore connections will be missed!

Story Edit

Lyrics Edit

I’m the eyes on a satellite  I identified the pieces that were left behind,  But how can I see with a blindfold?  -Take it off and suffer  Now I’m acting kinda’ strange  Nobody’s home inside  I did it to myself ‘cause I went left-field  I’d have to take the time to find out  No one’s home, but the light still shines 

Listen,  I’m no star, but I was forged in the night  -The remnants of a universe built on lies  And yet… and yet my story still rides  Creeping at the corners  -Growing up the sides  A figment of the figment that I kept in spite of  Tryna’ figure out all the mess inside  While I’m wrapped up in changing,  All the rest subsides  I’ll ride out ‘til the end  -Just to test my might  I’m fine!  I’m not affected!  Someone let me slide  Someone watching above kept me all tied up...  So I did my best to find my way  Through all the dark—struggle less  -Blessed 

If this plaque on my soul doesn’t let me fly,  I’ll proceed to a fall  No surprise, I’ll survive  Maybe the will of the gods keeps me alive  ‘Cause some vengeful holds don’t let me die  It’s like a slap to the face… 

Rolling down all hope, so I can’t fight the waning  Justifying won’t stop this mass-pretending  My low reality has been broken!  Even with all pieces, I’m just too far down 

Listen here…  To a man confiding all his secrets at the bottom  I can’t quite remember who I was before,  And who that was is gone  It’s like I rearranged everything  Then crawled away, deep from the center  Spiraled out ‘til the catch hooked back and relapsed  But nothing is ever set in stone 

I pulled out from the sap—my surprise attack  I snapped!  And that’s the me that I can’t get back  I’m at a new low where I can’t distract myself  Stuck til’ I learn to accept all my demons  -Tap into this brand new me  Does no one else in the world know how I am feeling?  In the solid pitch-black,  I step through the marsh of the mind,  And its chord is dissonant  I’m another conflicted soul that has nowhere to go  Ripped and stolen from my home  My treasure brought back to its trove  Flames were spent and turned to coals  My wings were clipped and skin exposed  Take a step back and review  All the masks that decorate that hole
