"Numbered Days" as written by Mark O. Everett and Joe W. Gore....
The Time Approaches
Fall!

This is the voice of the Voiceless
We have learned about making choices
Not of persecution or dilution
We have severed the solution
To build our foundation on natural elements to preserve life
We will rise and battle on

Chanting inspiration for the righteous
Dislocation from the social order
Kingdoms will rise to power
But kingdoms fall to dust
To ashes of the dead
Will be a sign
The time approaches

Arms raised (raised)
Eyes gazed (gazed)
Tongues of fire whisper
This life (life)
Will soon (soon)
Slip away!

Babylon you will fall
Your days are numbered
Who will hear your cries as you fall

    General CommentInterview w/Jesse Leach:
    "Numbered Days" is about the system of Babylon, and how the time will be coming soon for them to tumble and fall. I really believe the time is approaching swiftly."

    General Commentthis is the best song on Alive or Just Breathing in my opinion. this is probably one of my fav bands, although they sound very similar to in flames, which is not a bad thing.

    General CommentThis is my fave KsE song. I just discovered this band, I got their album Alive or Just Breathing. It is a masterpiece. Its a shame Jesse left the band though as he's one of the best singers I've ever heard.

    General CommentI like Supervixen's quote.... My uncle had shown me this prophecy in Jeremiah 51 about Babylon's fall.. and then I heard this song and that was the first thing that came to my mind. I don't know if that was what Jesse was refering to. If you get a chance, check it out, its pretty interesting...

    General Commenti dont care what that quote says. most killswitch songs arent supposed to be taken literal. its so clear, through the meanings of all of their other songs, that this is their ultimate goal, what they think should happen in this world. they believe that today's society, most likely the united states. should and will fall, like babylon. babylon was just an example. just look at all of their other songs. i mean c'mon.
