"And All Things Will End" as written by and Matthew Sanders Brian Haner Jr.....
Lived through you
Safe with how we lived our lives
With how it all turned out (But things are bound to change)
Uncovered lies, surfaced throughout
Will make you change your mind

Sometimes life is altered
Won't turn out right, can't turn out right

When I see you, I can read it in your eyes
Fate misunderstood (But things are bound to change)
Swallowed the lies, can't blame you for
Thinking with your heart

Sometimes life is altered
Break from the ropes your hands are tied
Uneasy with confrontation
Won't turn out right, can't turn out right

I see my world crumble and fall, before my eyes
I know, I know
Dark will turn to light, in time I'll be alright
I know, I know
I never imagined my life could turn out this way
So cold, so black, so alone

Living goes by fast, catch your breath
And it will pass you by
And it won't last, to sulk with the memories you hold

Sometimes life is altered
Break from the ropes your hands are tied
Uneasy with confrontation
Won't turn out right, can't turn out right

Sometimes life is altered
Break from the ropes your hands are tied
Uneasy with confrontation
Won't turn out right, can't turn out right

    General Commentthis song is about how you should live life to the fullest. don't waste it.
    things aren't perfect.
    things go wrong.
    you don't know your fate.
    but you can push through it.
    stand up for yourself

    "Living goes by fast, catch your breath
    and it will pass you by.
    And it won't last, to sulk with the memories you hold.">they're saying don't sit on your ass your whole life cause one day you'll look back and realize that the few memories you have aren't good ones. and time isn't going to go back, or slow down, just 'cause it feels bad for you.

    General CommentThe best part about this song is definitely the very end where it all winds down. It kinda ties up the "And All Things Will End" type of thing. They keep playing till the final note and everything. Just think it's an appropriate way to end the song.

    General CommentThis is my favourite a7x song ever. Liked it forever. I like how it has every element of a7x. Has the cleann vocals, has the screaming. Has the fast tempo then it slows down it's just awesome.

    General CommentI agree with mo money. I think what A7X is trying to say here is to live like theres no tomorrow and make the best of what you have been dealt in your life.

    General CommentBlankInfinity are you thinking of optimistic? I agree with mo money and pessimistic just doesnt seem to describe his thoughts very well.

    General CommentMo money's interpretation makes sense but a lot of the words of the song make it seem like he's talking about a relatinship he had with a girl and how it has ended. I might have to listen to it just to make sure. Anyway, the extremely high note around the 6 minute mark is extremely badass. Thanks Mr. Gates.

    ^^ Basically what most of you has already said before me. Dont hold onto the past, sulk over things that havent gone right, live life to the fullest. Perhaps learn from your mistakes and make things right. Dwelling on the past never helped anyone.

    General CommentI agree with everyone else..but some parts of the song make it sound like he cheated on his girlfriend and felt bad about it, so he told her and things ended up pretty bad

    "Lived through you,
    safe with how we lived our lives,
    with how it all turned out"
    This is sayign that they're happy with the way their relationship is going"

    "But things are bound to change
    Uncovered lies, surfaced throughout,
    will make you change your mind"
    He messed up..and he feels bad so hes going to confess it..but he already knows that thigs are going to turn out bad.

    "Won't turn out right. Can't turn out right"
    Once again..he knows it wont turn out well

    "When I see you, I can read it in your eyes,
    fate misunderstood.
    (But things are bound to change)"
    Here hes saying that he knows she doesnt have a clue, she thinks its all going well, but thats going to change soon

    Swallowed the lies, can't blame you for,
    thinking with your heart.
    HE told her...she got mad at him..

    "Sometimes life is altered.
    Break from the ropes your hands are tied."
    He messed up their future together, and she cant change what he did

    "Uneasy with confrontation.
    Won't turn out right. Can't turn out right"
    She didnt take it well..and hes telling himself that everything is ruined.

    "I see my world crumble and fall, before my eyes
    I know, I know.
    Dark will turn to light, in time I'll be alright
    I know, I know
    (I never imagined my life could turn out this way
    So cold so black so alone)"
    they broke up, and his world is crumbling. he knows its his fault, but hes still sad about it. He could never imagine being without her, but it finaly happened


    So yeah..this is my first time ever doing this....i hope it makes sense..and sorry if im way off
