The Window
Thrice Lyrics


All that I know's within the walls of this room where there's a window
Roughly boarded up
It's true the gaps are patched but even through the tiny cracks, I feel the wind blow
I see a light it's strange as you

And there's nothing I can say
There's no way I can prove
That there's a place
Beyond this room
But still, there's something in the way
The light comes shining through
And in the way
The curtains move

Late in the night I lay awake
My eyes fixed on the window
Swing my ears until
I thought
That I might have heard a song
Somehow hiding in the soft glow
All this time, and never knew

And there's nothing I can say
There's no way I can prove
That there's a place
Beyond this room
But still, there's something in the way
The light comes shining through
And in the way
The curtains move

I found a note scratched in the wall
In a pained and earnest scrawl
The hand I recognized was somehow mine already slight with dread
There's no wind and there's no light
There's no song in here at night
There's nowhere to hide, we're terrified
It's all inside your head

Still, there's something in the way
The light comes shining through
And in the way
The way the curtains move

Dustin's lyrics about God are so masterfully written. They are one of those that I admire the most,, and that's a funny thing, considering I'm nowhere near a believer.

@XxXCaptainJakkXxX its deffinatly about God whose light is shining through the cracks and curtains

It's not about God. It's about whether there's an afterlife.

It's about existential crisis pretty much. The "room" is the world we live in and know, our tangible reality so to speak. The window is sort of a viewpoint of the world beyond this world, or the afterlife. It's boarded up so all we are familiar with is the present reality but glimmers of light and wind and sound come through to tell us there is a world beyond what we know. What feels like certain evidence when experiencing it that can in no way be proven to anybody as having been real. The note scratched in the wall is basically the way he fool ourselves into believing that a life beyond what we know and can prove is real is imaginary, and any indications otherwise are all inside our head.

Of course, people are welcome to their own interpretation but given Dustin's spiritual views and background as a very religious lyricist I can all but assure that this is the intended meaning of the song.

I've thought about that a lot myself. I really think it a day trip in the mind of a split personality patient. Personality (A) feels trapped their empty "room" and the windows are the patients eyes that are covered up. Personality (B) is trying to keep the other contained so they can control the narrators mind. Then you try and figure out if personality (A) has been trapped its entire existence or only long enough to forget how the world looks from their perspective. Let me know what you think about that.
