"Collision" as written by Timothy P. Lambesis, Evan White, Tommy Garcia and Jordan Mancino....
Can you understand my meaning hidden in the roses around my eyes
I want you to know how much it means to have you in my life
Your love brings me close again in this instance when our worlds collide
The wire of eternity twists around us
I can feel this river rising, moving up my back
Some things never change
Some things never go away
I could never forget you
And I will never be the same

    General CommentTo me this song is about falling in love with someone. Time to disect the song=D

    Line 1:
    -----To me in this line he is trying to ask the person if they really can see how much he loves them underneath everything else. Roses can be used to descirbe the false beauty of something. That false beauty is just in his eyes though because i doesn't know how the other person feels about him so and he still has all the insecurities and he wonders of they know he has them as well.

    Line 2 needs none

    Line 3:
    -----This just means to him it feels like they are meant to be forever

    Line 4:
    -----The river rising is meant by the feeling of water going up ones back. This is used to describe the feeling of love and the feeling of it engulfying you.

    Remaining lines also need no explanation

    General CommentIt is a love song to God man. When you truely have that relationship with christ you love him with all your heart more then anything else in life.

    "i can feel this river rising, moving up my back "

    That line describes to me the feeling of God's love and the holy spirit entering his life. It is an experience like no other.

    General CommentByfar one of the best AILD songs, but seriously what does it matter if its about God or a acutal relationship?? It means something differnt to everyone.
