"Permanent" as written by and Vena....
Sometime ago,
I keep losing track over again,
All these promises won't turn golden until you Touch them

It's permanent,
Nothing is permanent
It's permanent,
We'll be watching your back following Indecision's lasting for years,
Indecision's lasting for years.

Sometime ago,
Memories in my head are starting again,
Speak it fast don't move in slow,
Running through the country maybe they will find me.

It's permanent,
Nothing is permanent
It's permanent,
We'll be watching your back,
We'll be watching your back
Following indecision's lasting for year
Indecision's lasting for years
Like a river in Arizona dried up before you were born

It's starting up again
It's starting up again
It's starting up again (We'll be watching your back)
It's starting up again
It's starting up again
We'll be watching your back its permanent Nothing is permanent
It's permanent
We'll be watching your back
It's permanent
Nothing is permanent
It's permanent
Time is pushing us back (following)
Permanent permanent permanent

    General CommentThis is my favorite Acceptance song--cant wait to see these guys in two days

    Does anybody else get the feeling that this song is about losing friends?
    Kind of like the friends promised they would watch the singers back, but "nothing is permanent" so that never happened.

    General CommentI think this song is about not letting your life be permanent, i think its a contradiction of what he's saying. I guess its his tone of voice that kind of says "dont let your life be something you dont want" because he says nothing is permanent hes saying your life doesnt have to end the way everyone else would want it to. He's saying that you have to take action and make your life what YOU WANT.

    General CommentThis is song is most likely about the comments I made about the Acceptance song "Compromise", which was on their first album. I think this song is Jason's reoccurring feelings in regards to the topic of "Compromise":
    "I think this song is about Jason's (the lead singer) drummer from his first group "Day Zero". I'm not sure about the actual tension, but it's my understanding there was some real drama between the Drummer and Jason. Regardless, when Acceptance was formed, I think the drummer (who I'll leave nameless) decided to choose a new life path. The 'He' that is spoken about in this song is god, because Day Zero was a christian band, and as is evident, there are some christian undertones in Acceptance's music. Jason wants god to show the drummer the way, not leave the band and also not compromise with his other 'commitments'. But that's just my guess... "
