There are secrets, that we've been keeping
All the fire in our eyes, is going out
Into the distance, I hear them coming
And with the torches lit, I mellow out my head
We are running from the scene of the crime,
that we committed, that we committed
We're running out of time
Suspects, alibis, and partners in crime,
and partners in crime
We are running from the day, it's not too late
It's not too late, to turn around and face what we did,
what we did
And there's crowded skeletons, hanging in our closets
Like we can hide it
We will find an alibi, to take our side
And peel away the dirt from our skin
Well he wants your blood, and he wants your heart

    General CommentI think this song talks about the bad things we do, then we try to hide it. the "secrets". All of our mistakes catch up to us "Into the distance I hear them coming with torches lit"
    We run away from the punishments and consequences, and at the end he realizes he can't run forever and that he'll need to find a permanent way out. I think the last line talks about how God wants all of you (he wants your blood, he wants your heart)

    General CommentI believe it talks about how all the Sin in your life slowly chokes out your fire for God, and makes you turn and run away. Though we are still fooling ourselves, trying to hide the obvious, we search for something that can makes us clean, make us feel God, or restore our relationship with Christ. But all God wants is to heal you, not condemn you.
