Not in the running
But this rain is nothing new to me anyway
I see my reflection
No where near who I should be.
The spirit is willing
but the anchors of my flesh still hold me down.
With every distraction
I lose more of who I should be.

Had many times to try
Before I realized
The flaws in my design
Have led me to ask why
Why'd you make me so weak?
Ive tried, but im incomplete
Is this all there is?
All there is to me?

How many chances
At redemption do I think I'll ever get?
Keep changing my rhythms
for a shot at something more.
Miracles happen
So why do I feel like Ive been left behind?
Is it in my nature
to look for what i can't find?


Is this all there is?
Is this all there is to me?
I should be all better now.
This is all there is to me.
I can pick myself up again.
Is this all there is?
I hope that one day
I will make a stand.
But right now
This is all there is to me.

No matter how I dream
I will never be complete
Cuz right now this is all there is to me.
Yea right now this is all there is to me...

    General CommentI think this song basically means someone that is wanting to be somthing more and/or trying to find themselves but cant seem to do it. maybe one day they will get there but for now this is who they are. pretty straight forward.

    very good song that i can definitly relate to and im sure many others could as well

    General CommentThis seems like a song about spirituality to me. About not being able to live up to the expectations that are set forth by a religion.

    Song MeaningThe song is about feeling not to be good enough. Bout not getting along with life's and other people's various demands.

    Vocalist Nathan talked about the meaning before they played this song at an acoustic set. He stated that he went through some hard times in the past and that he is glad those are over. "With Every Intention" is a special song for him and you can definitely feel that when they perform it live.
