"Hope Is..." as written by Howard Jones, Justin Foley, Mike D'antonio, Adam Dutkiewitz and Joel Stroetzel....
This is our moment
Will you stand with me?
Hope is not lost
Hope is not lost

Let the strength of your words
Be the spark that ignites the flame
Proclaim your freedom
Give voice to your liberation

This is my confession
Mark these words, we will rise

Weep no more
We will prevail
Grieve no more
We will prevail

Revoke the needless way of affliction
Revoke and abandon
We are the authors, finishers of our faith
We are the solution

This is my confession
Mark these words, we will rise

Weep no more
We will prevail
Grieve no more
We will prevail

Hope is
Hope is not lost

Weep no more
We will prevail
Grieve no more
We will prevail

This is our moment
Will you stand with me?
Hope is not lost
Hope is not lost

    General CommentThe world needs more rebellion anthems like this, especially now that America is being ruled by a bunch of Nazi dick heads.

    If only more people listened to this shit...

    It's about rising up against oppression and saying "fuck everything that has gone before, this is our moment, we will make a differance".

    General CommentIn my opinion, I don't think it's about rebellion, but rather, "fighting the good fight" or "running the good race." Being a believer. He's saying do not despair because there is so much sin in the world because "hope is not lost." "Let the strength of your words be the spark that ignites the flame" - Preach the gospel and allow your word to spread the gospel through the people like a fire. "Proclaim your freedom, give voice to your liberation" - Tell people how Jesus set you free and has liberated you from the ways of the world and sin." "weep no more/grieve no more, we will prevail" He's saying fear not, because we've already won. As spoken in revalation, Satan and the world has already been defeated, so there's no reason to to be saddened. "revoke the needless way of affliction, revoke and abandon" - rebuke sin in your life and try to live your life as holy as possible so to be a witness unto the nations. "we are the authors, finishers of our faith" - that's scripture straight from the bible. "we are the solution" - how we are the only ones who can spread the word and bring people to Jesus Christ before the rapture. Awesome song... they are really amazing, can't wait to see them in concert with In Flames and As I Lay Dying this Thursday.

    General Commenti agree totally with me tall i ca. this album came out recently, so i think it might have something to do with the athiests, and how people are taking god and jesus out of everything. and now the christians are standing up and doing what is right. i think this song is sort of about that and how we dont need to weep or grieve anymore that this is happening, but we need to stand together, and fight for us, and spread the word of god and jesus. just a thought.

    General CommentI agree with all the stuff said here. This is another song that gives me a rush at its climax (when hes saying hope is not lost in the mid part of the song). Really powerful song in my opinion, just the flow and the lyrics.

    General CommentI kinda agree with those last posts, but to be honest, i just think it's a really powerful song....The kind that pops into your head in you darkest times, when you think there is nothing left, when you have your head in your hands. Just remember those lyrics over and over again "hope is not lost" and it isnt, it never is

    General CommentI don’t understand how any religious connotations can be made from the lyrics of this song. It does not appear that Killswitch are religious, or am I mistaken? I think the lyrics make it pretty clear that it is a song about fighting back and rebellion, and to assume that it is about ‘preaching the gospel’ and other religious messages such as Jesus dying for our sins is presumptuous and clearly bullshit.

    General CommentKillswitch are religious ...well jesse david leach was anyway. I think this song can be seen as spreading the word of the bible, but however I think it's more to do with standing up and actually helping world peace be achievable instead of sitting by and expecting other people to create it. We all want it so why are we not doing anything about it? Well that's how I see it anyway.

    General CommentIceman87 - KSE may not be officially genre'd as Christian, but take a look at the latest album As Daylight Dies and the religous connotations are blatant. Sure you can relate most christian messages to be kin to relationship and social issues we see today, but isn't that the basis of Christianity anyways? A positive outlook on life and how we should fix it?

    General CommentI think this song has something to do with both what soccero15 and me tall i ca are saying.

    Or could be something about not losing hope?
    I dont know.
    All I know is that I like this song. Like all KSE songs.
    They give metal a good name. I like the positive messages they send.

    Correct lyrics:

    Come on!

    This is our moment.
    Will you stand with me?
    Hope is not lost.
    Hope is not lost.

    Let the strength of your words be the spark that ignites the flame.
    Proclaim your freedom, give voice to your liberation.
    This is my confession.
    Mark these words, we will rise.

    Weep no more, weep no more!
    We will prevail!
    Grieve no more, grieve no more!
    We will prevail!

    Revoke the needless way of affliction, revoke and abandon.
    We are the authors, finishers of our faith.
    We are the solution

    This is my confession.
    Mark these words, we will rise.

    Weep no more, weep no more!
    We will prevail!
    Grieve no more, greive no more!
    We will prevail!

    Hope is...hope is not lost.
    Hope is...hope is not lost.

    Weep no more, weep no more!
    We will prevail!
    Grieve no more, greive no more!
    We will prevail!

    This is our moment.
    Will you stand with me?
    (Stand with me)
    Hope is not lost.
    Hope is not lost.
