"Reinventing Your Exit" as written by and Aaron Gillespie Christopher Dudley....
Twelfth and Hyde on a Sunday
Feeling like we're gold
And we're nothing short of invincible

Invincible
Invincible
It starts again, can you feel it?
It takes your breath away
Stop saying that we're invincible

It's around and round
You're uninviting, unrewarding
And I'm misinforming you, misinforming you

We all want to be, want to be somebody
Right now, we're just looking for the exit

This is the way I would have done things
Up against the wall, up against the wall
You got me up against your wall

This is the way I would have done things
Up against the wall, up against the wall
You got me up against your wall

It's you and me on a Monday
The lies that we told
This is where we both go numb now

You broke my heart again this time
You're fading now, you crossed the line
You crossed the line

We all want to be, want to be somebody
Right now, we're just looking for the exit

This is the way I would have done things
Up against the wall, up against the wall
You got me up against your wall

This is the way I would have done things
Up against the wall, up against the wall
You got me up against your wall

Reaching out for a hand that's not here
But you're not there
But you're not

This is the way I would have done this
Up against your wall, up against your wall
This is the way we should have done
When we're up against a wall
Up against the wall
This is the way I would have done this
Up against the wall, up against the wall
You got me up against your wall
This is the way I would have done this
Up against the wall, up against the wall
You got me up against your wall

    General CommentI dont know what you typed in for the url. But I do believe this is Song Meanings.net...not Letscryaboutbandswhentheychange.net. Most bands change, get over it. I think this is a great song. I like the new underoath as well as the old.
    p.s. animal liberation, your dumb.
    end.

    General CommentOk, after watching one of Aaron's sermons on Youtube...This is what I gained...To me it's about judgemental Christians and that they are no better than the unsaved...
    "You're uninviting
    Unrewarding
    And I'm misinforming you"

    Aaron talked about how an organization got together at Marilyn Manson concerts shouting at people and telling them that they are going to hell. That is obviously uninviting.

    and,
    "You got me up against your wall"

    ...judgemental. I don't know what it is about (That's why I came...Not to cry about Dallas.)
    but this is just my opinion.
    ;)

    General Commenti think people need to stop saying underOath sucks because they dont. Its their decision if they dont want to be "hardcore" or if they dont want to scream as much and u were a true underOath fan you wouldnt care how much they screamed.
    bands change... it happens. GET OVER IT! they are still one of the best bands in the world and im sure alot of people will agree with me on this.
    Sooo

    General CommentDallas is GONE! Underoath keeps getting less and less hard, i hate it! Dallas and the first singer were soo amazing , they should have kept them! I'm so disappointed. Underoath was my favorite hardcore band, especially the cries of the past era.

    General Commentyea well theres nothing we can do. just appreciate the fact the band is together for us fans. and with that said, a band's music has to evolve at one point or another.

    and i believe this song is about accepting yourself, and making a change.
