"Eternity Is Within" as written by Matthew Bachand, Jason Bittner, Jonathan Donais, Brian Fair and Paul Romanko....
Man has programmed himself to die
A death wish has been ingrained
Almost with our first breath
We are taught to expect our last

Science has done its best to choke off
The true instincts of mankind
Death is impatient and thoughtless
Mortality is a disease of the mind

Embrace the gifts before you
Paradise is underfoot
Eternity is within

Lost site of the bounty before us
Boundless resource of pleasure and plenty
Living for an intangible
In a future clouded with doubt

One step forward is one step
deeper into the grave

Breathe, breath of life

    General CommentCarpe Diem. Don't live your life worrying about dying; people seem to die faster when they live like that. Some people could look at this song and maybe go too deep and say that he's talking about the eternity that you receive when you accept Christ. But since SF isn't a Christian metal band, I doubt that was his intent when he wrote these lyrics.

    General Commenthell yeah, awesome fucking song...simply about cherishing the moments in your life and not taking anything for granted. It refers to the way people think too much about death and forget about the life they are living right now. "Embrace the gifts before you, paradise is underfoot, eternity is within..." Just simply breathtaking. This song also has an awesome solo just like all other SF songs...

    General CommentThat's one of the best things about Shadows Fall as a band; they never forget to add a sweet solo into a song. That's why they rise above the sea of worthless trash the media calls emo and pop-punk. Fuck that shit!
