"Young Grow Old" as written by and Scott Stapp Mark Tremonti....
He said it's fallin' to pieces
Fighting the boy, and the man
Over his shoulder, there was freedom,
But consciousness has tied his hands

Am I at youth
Once his distinction
Now consciousness has tied hands

I said I'm not afraid of weakness
And that's the key to understand

So far in a distant land
No one thinks that the young man can

See the light through the open door
Sit and watch, as the young grow old

Watching the people in the circle
Watching the glass spill the sand

I said are you afraid of weakness
Well that's your key to understand

So far in a distant land
No one thinks that the young man can
See the light through the open door
Sit and watch, as the young grow old

So young grow old
So young grow old

So young grow older

Take 'em now, see the boy is free, yeah(?)
What to be, what to be

Take 'em now, she leans on weak, yeah(??)
Is this the way, this the way?

So far in a distant land
No one thinks that the young man can

See the light through the open door
Sit and watch, as the young grow old

    General CommentI believe that this song is about a Man, still clinging on his youth and has a hard time growing into manhood.

    General CommentMyownprison333, how pathetic are you to believe that this jumble of words is so beautifully writen. An example for those nonbelievers is "So far in a distant land
    There's a fight between boy and man." How can a mere act of child abuse be beautiful?

    General Comment"Take a look now, see the boy is weakened
    Watch him fade, watch him fade away
    Take a bow and the boy is defeated"
    This is proof that the lead singer of this band has sex with small boys, I guess he is priest like.

    General CommentSomeone answer me one question please. Why isn't this song on the standard U.S. Human Clay album? It's and awesome song with a heavy beat annd Stapp actually tries to do a rap-sing-song thingy in it. The meaning is relatively clear. If you have read a Stapp Bio then you know that his relationship with his father was a bit shaky. When he was 17 he turned down a scholarship and left home, living in a car for a while (how long I'm not sure). He may be relating to this "gap" in his life between this "down time" of his life and later finding himself and getting himself under control as well as relating to his negative father-son relationship. Similar to the other song, "I'm Eighteen."
