"The Remembrance Ballad" as written by Daniel Jacobs, Travis Miguel, Brandon Saller and Ektor Varkatzas....
These days are closing in
The end has become apparent
We're only here for so long
Will anyone remember my name
When time has washed away the dust of our ashes?
When my head rests in a velvet lined casket?
What's out there?
What is my eternal fate?
It only just recently hit me
That this life is just a state
Mortality fading, like the innocence of line
I'm scared to death of what's to become

Of my immortal soul of this eternal flame
Will you remember?
Will your heart sing with pain?
Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens
When my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end in a blanket of darkness
What of my soul, what of my soul?

All those things you couldn't say
You should've said
All those I-love-you's lost
Weighed more like lead on your chest

What if I could take back all those misspent days?
Every second of anger, I would wash my sins away

    General CommentI absolutely love this song.
    This is a bit silly sounding, but I have a phobia of death but a lot of the lyrics in the song are questions and I constantly ponder. They're the exact same things I wonder about as well.

    It means a lot to me this song.. It makes me more comfortable of the idea that human beings are mortal beings

    General Commentcan't belive theres no posts yet for this song. this is a great slower and less heavy atreyu song with amazing lyrics and not to mention amazing guitar work. i think the lyrics are pretty self-explanitory but i believe this song is about the fear of what may come after death, the fear of wondering what happens to your soul and wondering if anyone at all will ever remember you.

    General CommentThis song IS amazing and awesome. It says to me, like everyone else has said before me, questions that you think of about life after death. But, this song also means more to me. If you were to die today, what have you not told someone that needed to be said, or vice versa. Some of my friends have died, and it always weighs on me what I should've told them. It's really emotional and has an extremely deep meaning.
