well, it's yours
you can have it if it means the much to you
don't let me stop you
don't let me stop you now

stretch me out across the table
turn my insides out
turn me into someone else
someone more like yourself

stretch me out
bother not with ties, i promise to lie perfectly still
i swear not to scream
at my becoming part of the machine

let it be known that this is what you'll get
for falling out of line
no one wins against the machine
so get back in line

are you the man now
that you got what you wanted
are you the man now
that you got it

    General Commentwhat lovesoamazing said "I asked Cody (vocals/guitar) about this a while back and he told me that it was about a friend of theirs that really liked their music and hung out with them alot but got online and started talking real bad about them because they don't have breakdowns and stuff and how they aren't the typical hardcore band. " makes ton of sense if you think really deeply about the lyrics

    Altough you could relate this song to sex or whatever, it really makes sense as sort of a sarcastic song to their friend "Well it's yours you can have it if it means that much to you" what they are saying is they are sick of this guys constant complaining about this band so heres our stereotypical run of the mill hardcore song for you.

    The Next two verses just speak about conformity to the hardcore genre, and as this guy sits at his computer and types all this garbage about ACB they won't do anything.

    Then the third verse is really their hit at the guy "let it be known that this is what you'll get for falling out of line, and no one wins against the machine, so get back in line" basically saying you know you can say all the garbage you want bet no one is going to be The perfect hardcore band, (Sorry i forgot to mention i think "The Machine" is your stereotypical hardcore genre music).

    And lastly as it was mentioned from lovesoamazing. The very last verse is the closest thing ACB has to a break down. and they are finally giving into having a breakdown but they throw in a tongue in cheek "Are you a man now, cause you got what you wanted" so after all this complaining that these guys aren't "real hardcore" they have a breakdown in the song.

    I love this song and ACB, They are truly an amazing group with/without TJ. I often find myself just really getting into their music even in my room ill just throw my hands up and start to worship. These guys capture the real essence of what Christian Hardcore/screamo/Post-hardcore whatever you want to call it is. Passion and Chaos..Love it

    General CommentThis is indeed an awesome song, both musically and lyrically. It took me a while to interpret the lyrics, but I finally think I have something worth noting.

    This song is basically a battle between the singer's sinful, fleshly desires (bloodsucker) and the desires of the Holy Spirit.

    "stretch me out across the table
    turn my insides out
    turn me into someone else
    someone more like yourself"

    The singer wants to be transformed from his sinful self into someone who reflects God.

    "stretch me out
    bother not with ties, i promise to lie perfectly still
    i swear not to scream
    at my becoming part of the machine"

    Here, the singer states that he is willing to go through the painful process of letting God destroy his flesh and replace it with something that God has intended.

    In the video, I think the doctor in the operating room is symbolic for God, and he seems to be doing some kind of operation on the mouth. I think the cover over the mouth of the people in the video is representative of sin, and the doctor is removing it. You will notice the posters in the video seem to be propoganda saying things like "silence."

    I may be wrong, but that is what I get from this song.

    General Commentoh man, i love thins song and i jsut read wat surrendered wrote and it makes totoal sence. It is the same exact thing i am going through right now. It is hard letting go of all ur sins and ungodly things u enjoy. Music and movies that dont reflect god and his purpose and guys and you kno everything. Aswell as conforming to god and his love is hard. Trying to be like him as hard as u can but there is still an urge for the things u r giving up to god and trying to let go of. It is a hard process.

    General Commenti haven't seen the video, but for the meaning that surrendered said, how does "becoming part of the machine" fit? and also the get back in line part, it doesnt make much sense

    General Commentseems simple enough..

    "well, it's yours
    you can have it if it means the much to you
    don't let me stop you
    don't let me stop you now

    stretch me out across the table
    turn my insides out
    turn me into someone else
    someone more like yourself

    stretch me out
    bother not with ties, i promise to lie perfectly still
    i swear not to scream
    at my becoming part of the machine"

    = i give up, evil wins [whoever this 'evil' might be]
    the person accepts evil and is asking to be part of it.

    and..


    "let it be known that this is what you'll get
    for falling out of line
    no one wins against the machine
    so get back in line"

    = the evil explaining i ALWAYS win. now FOLLOW ME!

    "are you the man now
    that you got what you wanted
    are you the man now
    that you got it"

    = could be the person just changed, almost taunting the 'evil' saying like, you happy now? you've won!?'

    now i chose to use 'evil' but it can be anything you want really say..a bitchy girlfriend trying to change you.. or idk whatever...

    but thats just me thinkin'

    anyway..
    enjoy.
