"The Patient" Explication

  1. 1. By Daniel Barcus
  2. 2. The symbolism, imagery, idiom, repetition, and hyperbole of the song work to explain the questions and struggles that come along with waiting.
  3. 3. The song starts with the speaker groaning and questioning if heis being tested. He explains how there is a vampire that isdraining the his patience and vitality. He is still giving blood tothe vampire and keeping faith even though the “vampire acts alittle old". The speaker is going to "wait it out" and mentions thathe would have walked away from the path he is on if he knewthat there were no rewards from waiting. The speaker thengoes on to explain that if he had no desire to heal the"damaged and broken" met along his path that he is on hewould have walked away from it. The speaker then urges to bepatient and that he must keep reminding himself of this.
