What do these lyrics mean?

It's me against the world, followed by 1,000 years of hurt, Where the skies are grey on a bright summer's day, Deep inside I feel the pain, it's holding me back and is keeping me astray, As I walk alone through the veils of fire, trying to dodge every obstacle that comes my way. My way, trying to... show more It's me against the world, followed by 1,000 years of hurt,
Where the skies are grey on a bright summer's day,
Deep inside I feel the pain, it's holding me back and is keeping me astray,
As I walk alone through the veils of fire, trying to dodge every obstacle that comes my way.
My way, trying to dodge every obstacle that comes near me..

I find it hard to realise, trying keep my sight on the prize;
I want to wake up now, just to fall back into another dream this time round,

Dark skies reflect the image of who I am, there is no light in the heart of this man.
I see the world in black and white, there's no colour from what is wrong and what is right.
Don't try to change my mind, I decide when all the sins shall die,
When the time comes, that's when I'll change what I've done,
I'll rise from above the grave, and head into the sun.
