"Eternal Rest" as written by and Matthew Charles/haner Sanders....
Black enchanting eyes,
Cut through my heart
With no regret or sign of life
They tear apart my pride
And cold runs through my veins
I feel their stare from miles
Haunting every step
And they won't stop hunting me down
I know the time will come,
When all around me's burned
And you'll still see me there
Asking where you went too
And what person brought you here
And why you left the burning children
Cold out in the night
And calling for you all alone

Dark in their hearts,
I can feel it burn inside of me
Tormented young with no souls, haunting me
Pain in their lives all they know is misery
Take these chains away that are holding me down (holding me down)

They'll find you alone
And your desperate and villainous ways
Turning their hearts into stone
They seek more then vengeance
Look in their eyes your pain is their satisfaction
Look in their eyes and see the darkness take hold
I'm controlled by fate (waiting for)
Tired of your parade (waiting for)
No sign of vengeance (waiting for)
Burn for the rest of time (waiting)

Hear the haunting words (They'll find you alone)
Lost children with no heart are crying (Turning their hearts into stone)
And your the lost mother their calling (Go now, run and hide)
I hear them crying at night (your pain is their satisfaction)
Outside when the planets are falling (for the rest of time)
They want to feel and know you hear them (Go now, run and hide)

Dark in their hearts,
I can feel it burn inside of me
Tormented young with no souls, haunting me
Pain in their lives all they know is misery
Take these chains away that are holding me down (holding me down)

Go now
Run and hide

Eternal rest in time
Eternal rest in time

    General CommentI'm almost positive this song is about the children God abandoned because they can't enter Heaven until armageddon.
    the children aren't "litteraly" burning(aka on fire) the burn with the desire to enter heaven.
    in the bible it talks about how children are born to die and their lives are meaningless.
    important lyrics to this song are often overlooked b/c they aren't included inthe lyrics that come with the Cd. so here's the missing pieces filled in...

    Look in their eyes your pain is their satisfaction.
    Look in their eyes and see the darkness take hold.
    (Waiting for...)(Lives consumed by faith, signs of their pure reign, No sign of fair chance.)
    Burn for the rest of time.

    sooo....
    they spent thier lives worshipping God only to be rejected by him. they want revenge on one hand but, on the other hand the cry for God to notice them. they are calling for God to release them 'take away their chains, they're holding them down'

    they wait impatiently for the end of time(aka armageddon) when they shall recieve their "eternal rest"
    "outside when the planets are falling"> that's armageddon

    General CommentI fucking love this song, I was like in awe with the pure combination of sound, it just blended so perfectly, I can't believe that there is a joy in the world as good as eternal rest
