"Are You Ready?" as written by Mark Tremonti and Scott Stapp....
Hey, Mr. Seeker Hold on to this advice
If you keep seeking you will find
Don't want to follow
Down roads been walked before
It's so hard to find unopened doors
Are you ready? are you ready?
For what's to come?
Oh, I said are you ready, are you ready?
For what's to come?

Hey, Mr. Hero Walking a thin, fine line
Under the microscope of life
Remember your roots, my friend
They're right down below
'Cause heroes come and heroes go

Are you ready? are you ready?
For what's to come?
Oh, I said are you ready, are you ready?
For what's to come?

Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one
Count down to the change in life that's soon to come
Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one
Count down to the change in life that's soon to come
Your life has just begun
Life has just begun
Life has just begun
Life has just begun

Are you ready? are you ready?
For what's to come?
Oh, I said are you ready, are you ready?
For what's to come?
Oh, I said are you ready, are you ready?
For what's to come?
Your life has just begun
Life has just begun
Life has just begun
Life has just begun

    General Commenti think it's at least partly about fame...or becoming famous...tryign to do it differently from everyone else, but telling u to remember who u r and where u r from, cos fame comes and goes (heroes...) but your past is always there so long as you dont loose yourself in the world of money...

    General CommentI just wanted to mention that creed really puts some thought into writing their music. They also make each CD become a musical journey. Their first album was a lot more "troubled" and gradually it got tame. If you are pissed off, listening to this CD is a good way to calm you down.. well, at least for me it is.

    General CommentIn this song Scott gets to show off his counting skills.

    I hate to say I doubted him but I am glad he pulled it off. He must have had a great coach.


    GO CREED!!!

    General CommentOne meaning of this song that I find in the lyrics,

    Remember your roots, my friend
    They're right down below
    'Cause heros come and heros go

    I thinks its when he was thinking about his past and he relized that you have to remember where you come from, cause that makes you who you are, and it affects your thinking. Also because you will always have friend (heros) that will come and go, so you can become to attached to them, but family will always be there.

    General CommentI once listened to this song non-stop for an hour...I love the guitar riff between the second verse and the countdown, it's amazing!

    The lyrics are also very good (like all Creed songs). The hero part means a lot to me, because I often become attached to things/various people (heros), but in the end, none of them last, except friends and families. Of course, this is just my interpretation. The beauty of "Are You Ready" is it can be seen to mean so many different things... Gotta love it.
