I've found a song ‘The Sisterhood - Giving Ground’. And there is a line, which is hard for me to understand:

Everything is lost in the giving ground.

I would be very grateful, if someone helped me to understand what does ‘the giving ground’ mean in this examples.

    To give ground means to retreat, yield or withdraw. I don't know what "the giving ground" means, especially when taken out of context, not to mention in a song. – michael.hor257k Dec 31 '18 at 13:03

By searching on Google I found, "And every truth is swallowed up, By gently giving ground" This has the meaning explained by michael.hor257k. genius.com/The-sisterhood-giving-ground-lyrics - – chasly from UK Dec 31 '18 at 13:18
