    General CommentThis song is actually about the 11th Hour when the band decided not to sign to a major label.

    General CommentThis song is about knowing when you've made a mistake and learning to make the best of it. Also to overcome the things that give you a hard time or piss you off.

    General Comment"This song is actually about the 11th Hour when the band decided not to sign to a major label."

    Did it not occur to you that this song could have such a title of some significance, yet not actually be about that specific event?

    The message of this song is pretty damn clear.
    Do you know where the power lies?
    It starts and ends with you.

    Duh.

    It is an uplifting song. I can look at my past mistakes and still say that I will "walk on through." Ingenius.

    General CommentAnd I failed to mention this, but the "11th-hour" refers generally to decisions made at the latest possible time. It coule be an idiom.

    General CommentThere are a lot of good interpretations here. I am getting clean and so the 1st and last two verses have really meant a lot to me. I think it is difficult to fully unpack the meanings. On one hand, sure you can relate it to not signing with a label. However, for me the whole wasted days and being almost over have really spoken to my addiction, and helped straighten my act out. This is a band of recovered addicts
