"The Moon Is Down" as written by Christopher Andrew Carrabba, Chad J. Neptune, Steve Kleiseth, Nicolau Bonifacio Dominguez and Joshua E. Colbert....
The moon is down
And heaven is waiting
For us to find her in our sites
With focus that's strong
But my strength keeps slipping

Now we're all the terminal cases
(We're all the terminal cases)
But we're so determined to thrive
And those with defeat on their faces
(Those with defeat on their faces)
Are those that we must keep alive
And I admire your strength
You keep us going on
(You keep us going on)
You keep us going on
(You keep us going on)
You keep us fighting long
after the fire

You've measured our strides
Marked the degree of our fever
Charted the log
Made sure the temperature's rising

To fan the flames
And brandish our new courage proudly
As if it were ours from the outset
(As if it were ours from the outset)
As if we were never alone

The moon is down
And heaven is waiting
For callers and entries
As we're calling out
"This is ours, ours, ours
This one is ours!"

Now we're all the terminal cases
(We're all the terminal cases)
But we're so determined to thrive
And those with defeat on their faces
(Those with defeat on their faces)
Are those that we must keep alive
And I admire your strength
You keep us going on
You keep us going on
You keep us fighting long after the fire

    General CommentIn short (I don't feel like giving a full analysis right now), this song is about Chris's feelings of God, and God's feelings of Chris in return. Chris is both saying how God give him strength, and how he's going to keep spreading God's word, and drawing people to his side; "This is ours, ours, ours, this one is ours!" And as I've mentioned of other bands, FSF is a CHRISTIAN band, full of constant God metaphors. They thank God first and foremost on their album, and are part of Tooth And Nail Records, a Christian record company.

    General CommentSo this really is Christian? I must say, normally i am pretty good at reading between the lines, but chris's lyrics just dont seem to relate anything christian to me. I mean, sure, he mentions god, heaven, but hey! so does bad religion, and uh, trust me, they sure as heck arent christian. But also, if you take a look at dashboard confessional lyrics, they dont seem christian in the slightest either, which is chris as well.

    General CommentThey are a proclaimed Christian band, and their songs (though not all of them) do relate heavily. However, Chris is a master of the metaphor, allowing his a hidden touch to his music.

    General Commenti don't think they are christian band. They don't try to make a point of god or christ. I think it is just all these bible bangers looking for something to grab on to. SO they look WAY WAY WAY to deep into the lyrics until they find what they want. Just another case of shoe fitting
