"A Bid Farewell" as written by and Adam Dutkiewitz Joel Stroetzel....
I will bid farewell, sever the ties. is this what I am?
Is this all that's left?
Turn from deceit, the love of self is death, deliverance is given to you
I will bid farewell sever the ties
Now your heart beats back with deception, you have been forsaken
Leave behind (i will) all reminders of you
I will bid farewell to all lies, I will bid farewell sever the ties
Searching always searching, hoping for a change, I will never be satisfied, I will never be
I will never be satisfied, I will now bid farewell
I will bid farewell to all lies, I will bid farewell sever the ties

    General CommentI got this album on the 10th, when it came out and I haven't stopped listening to it.

    I think this song is talking about how self preservation will ultimately lead to your own downfall, and so the only way to survive is to accept that you are not perfect and to stop pretending that you are.

    General CommentI'm not sure what this song means but its incredible

    KsE is a really raw form of metal in my opinion they always seem to go over the top with amazing combinations of singing and screaming on this cd

    never heard any other cds but id guess them to be as good as this one

    General Commentkillswitch engage rules. at the start when he speaks "i will bid farewell" and screams "sever the ties" it sends a chill down my spine
