"Cherished" as written by and Jordan Robert/willey Whelan....
The shadows are dark with loneliness and in them we are searching.
It's all we've ever known and the strength we need has been hidden.
Heaven help us, we're only human.
I'm not sure if we can make it.

Heaven help us.
We need more than just enough.
Your presence is required.
Determined to find what we're searching for.

We're weak and can only hold on for so long.
Heaven help us, we're only human.
Heaven help us.
Waiting for something.

Heaven help us.
Waiting for something more.
More of you, more of you!
Like a drug, we crave you for our a-addiction!
Even in your hands, it's so hard to feel your grasp around us.

    My InterpretationI personally believe that this song is about Humanity's never ending quest to find the truth in things (life for example), and they are begging God to help them because they cant do it alone. This is reflected in the following verses:

    The shadows are dark with loneliness.
    And in them, we are searching.
    It's all we've ever known and
    the strength we need has been hidden.

    We need more than just enough.
    Your presence is required.
    Determined to find,
    what we're searching for.
    We're weak and can
    only hold on. for. so. long!

    Because of this, they crave the presence of God, they want Hin to be with them through their darkest days of the "search", but they realized that it is difficult to truly feel him even if they are surrounded by His glory:

    More! More! More of you, more! of you!
    More! More! More of you, more! of you!
    Like a drug, we crave you for our addiction.

    Even in your hands, (it's so hard)
    so hard to feel your grasp
    Even in your hands, (it's so hard)
    so hard to feel your grasp (around us!)

    Overall, this is simply an amazing song. The Lyrics are powerful and the musicianship is top quality. This is one of the best melodic christian metalcore bands there is. If you like Destroy the Runner, August Burns Red, or As I Lay Dying you WILL love these guys.
