"Follow" as written by and Morgan J./hornsby Rose....
Time can take everything that
surrounds you
You can break from everything that
confines you
Some to trust, look in my eyes
I will guide you
So I say

Living to love could remind you

You can't know follow

What I say to you take with you today
The pressure it brings
Alone alive to know

What I say to you take with you today
You can't take the pain
To live to know

You can't fake
Everything that reminds you
How you feel
Time will tell what's inside you

You can't know follow

What I say to you take with you today
The pressure it brings
Alone alive to know

What I say to you take with you today
The pressure it brings
Alone alive to know

    General CommentI don't know if the lyrics of this song are strait forward, or if there is any underlying symbolism of the words. Even though you can interpret it in anyway you want, you kinda want to know what the musician is trying to get across. But then again, you can fall into the world of your own mind, and love the song for your own reasons, something I have chosen to do...personally...I think this song is telling you that you're not destined to be a certain way, you are in control of your own life. Past experiences, harships, heartbreaks, can all be overcome...with you gaining strength and from personal growth...

    General CommentSince nobody's really had anything to offer for this song, I'll take a stab at it. As corny as it may seem, I think there's a feeling of self-exploration...and that to really understand who you are and what your place is in the universe, you have to let go of all your attachments and past trauma. Sometimes that is a frightening thing, but in the end you find out who you really are, not who you wish to be, and that brings clarity and self-confidence.

    General CommentWhy don't you offer up something better, Devhead, you stupid cunt? Can you? That's someone's own personal interpretation, it can't be asinine as long as it means something to them so why don't you keep your fucking mouth shut and let people take from art what they please.

    General CommentThis is my favorite Sevendust song.

    "Time can take everything that
    surrounds you
    You can break from everything that
    confines you"

    From this I feel that you can be locked into your path floating through life as things wear you down but you can break free.

    "You can't fake
    Everything that reminds you
    How you feel
    Time will tell what's inside you"

    To me it's about being detached and avoiding life, but at some point you have to face it.

    "You can't know, follow"

    Avoiding life, you simply can't know, so just blindly follow.

    My InterpretationI've been writing a term paper on sects (or destructive cults, if you prefer) recently and suddenly it dawned on me (Oh yeah, I had an illumination! Hear me now! ;D) that this song might be about such groups. If you read a little bit about how sects recruit new members, how they are brainwashed and led blindly, you may see that the lyrics somehow resemble this. I'm not really bent on proving my point here - just throwing an idea and what you do with it is up to you.

    Anyway, it's a great song and 7Dust rocks!
