"Through The Black" as written by and Ryan Clark Don Clark....
I've never been the type
To turn my back and run
It's never appealed to me
To be the same as everyone
When it comes to shove and I can't see you
Through the black
I'm gonna scream your name
'Til you come back
And every time I play with fire
I'm gonna burn, burn, burn until I learn
And every time I'm killing myself
I'm gonna hate, hate, hate
Time to set it straight

Bury the sick side
Tear from the inside out
Follow the downside
Waiting for something else

I know that you'll be here
And I'll be waiting
I know that you'll be near
And I'll be waiting

I turn it back and question
Everything in sight
It's like I try to fall again
When everything is going right
And everything that matters
Isn't everything in sight
It's taking every bit of me
To keep this all inside
I've never been the type
To turn my back and run
It's never appealed to me
To be the same as everyone
When it comes to shove and I can't see you
Through the black
I'm gonna scream your name
'Til you come back

Bury the sick side
Tear from the inside out
Follow the downside
Waiting for something else

I know that you'll be here
And I'll be waiting
I know that you'll be near
And I'll be waiting

Lost my mind and I lost track
I'm gonna scream your name 'til you come back
Lost my mind and I lost track
Gonna scream your name

Lost my mind

I know that you'll be here
And I'll be waiting
I know that you'll be near
And I'll be waiting
(Lost my mind) I'll be waiting

Gonna scream your name 'til you come back

    As followers of God, we are called to wait on something more. God is always with us and will always be there to help us

    General CommentYeah man. You are absolutley right!! "I'M GONNA BURN, BURN, BURN UNTIL I LEARN AND EVERYTIME IM KILLING MYSELF, I HATE, HATE, HATE. TIME TO SET IT STRAIGHT"

    I believe that this part of the song is telling us that when we sin, we will continuly sin until something bad happens, by then we will regret that we ever did what we did and end up hating ourselves or worse blaming others for our own actions, and hating them. It's time to set it straight, ask for gods forgiveness, unlike us, he never tires from us. Stop sinning before it's too late and permanent scars are left that dont need to be in place. God is there more than 24 hours a day, more than 7 days a week, Dont just keep him on a Sunday. Share his message to the world!

    General CommentI'd totally agree with all your interpretations... I think it's a pretty powerful song about the personal battles we fight inside ourselves to follow Him... Regardless of the "black" times...

    In the beginning, I think he screams "BRING IT ON" and "SHOWOFF" but I could be wrong, especially on the showoff part...

    General Commentthis song seems to be about how some of us do not run from sin, but face it and fight it. if you run from it, then you will get tired and i t will catch up to you.

    General CommentYou're right ravengmt.. at the beginning he screams "Bring it on" And "Show off" o.o *nods* I was just listening to it and listened for that and it was there.. theres also a "Yeaa" in between both, but you probably already knew that o.o
