"Life to Lifeless" as written by and Jesse Leach Mike D'antonio....
Humanity cover me
With the ashes of remembrance
I will learn from this pain

There is no darkness without light to teach us of ourselves

Humanity cover me
With the ashes of remembrance
I will learn from this pain

Life to lifeless
To eternity
Life to lifeless
The cycle repeats

Death unfolds itself painfully
To unmask how fragile we are
Death unfolds itself
Painfully teacher of sanity
The pain drags me down
I'll rebuild me
Pain drags me down
I'll rebuild me

Humanity cover me
With the ashes of remembrance
I will learn from this pain

Life to lifeless
To eternity
Life to lifeless
The cycle repeats

    General CommentInterview with Jesse Leach (original singer):
    "Life to Lifeless" was my way of dealing with September 11th, and there are really no words for it, so I just leaned on the old philosophy: we live, we die, some people live to live some more. Life continues and if it doesn't continue, there is an afterlife, I firmly believe that. So things happen for a reason."

    General Commentto me it means that you can live and have a great life and something can happen and it can all get taken away so you just cant quit and got to stand up and get done what you need to in your life because were all going to die and you dont want to die with any regrets

    General CommentIsn't it interesting how one's preconceptions can influence their thinking? According to an above comment Jesse saw his lyrics as saying that evetually you will reach an eternity after this life.

    I see it as: you're going to die . . . so who gives a fuck what you do.
