"Moving For The Sake Of Motion" as written by and Timothy/gillespie Mctague....
Someone please turn the lights back on
I've been wandering here for days,
Disconnected,
And in search for new air to breathe in

I don't think I can fix this
Dopn't think I could change
But that's the problem
We never speak to Him
Our closing walls have caged us in
And I can't quite remember
This was the first time I didn't say enough
This was the only time I kept it close
Enough

Brace yourself! They're not waking up

Oh, my God
I hate the me that I've become,
This needy useless forgetting one
Truthfully I can't be the me that I've
Washed up to be

Don't stop breathing
The walls have just begun to spin
Just let the water calm you this time
It's all around you, just open your eyes and
Take a look
It will never kill you; not this time

It's all around you
We're surrounded for all I care
Brace yourself right now
Lights out I'm not breathing
I can't keep swimming, can't keep my head up

    General Commentok.. anyways,, this song is bout prayer...and talking to god.."But that's the problem
    We never speak to Him" and i think its about how ungratefull we are and how we dont make time for god in our everyday lives "Oh my God,
    I hate the me that I've become.
    The needy useless, forgetting one
    Truthfully I can't be the me that I've washed up to be."

    General CommentUnderOath has definately shown that they are a Christian band with this song. The title to me means that we're just being Christian enough to get by...Moving (being a believer) for the sake of motion (being a "Christian"). Note how I put the quotes around "Christian", because just believing is one thing, but you gotta live your life for Him, and a lot of "Christians" are "dead", we can say. They say "We never speak to Him", which may mean that we never pray, another example of just being a Christian so we can be saved from Fire. To all the "Christians" out there: As they say in "In Regards To Myself", pull yourselves together!

    General CommentThe new stuff is so much better than 'They're only Chasing Safety.'
    In my opinion that is.


    Here is goes:

    Cries of the Past&&Act of drepression > Changing of times > Define the Great Line > They're Only Chasing Safety.

    But I seriously love them.
    And they're new stuff is amazing.

    General CommentThis is what I hear:

    In the end we tend to
    Think of how it began
    I could never explain
    The picture it painted and how it made me feel
    Now the ceilings in motion
    The light center and overlooked
    You wanna see me disappear?
    Well so do I
    Well so do I
    [----------] evaporation

    [----------]
    Is this what makes us alive?
    I never said this was my
    Revolution when you're never in line
    [----------]
    What a feeble attempt
    Just to feel alive

    This is, For you [indulge your hopeless games]
    You'll never [win], You'll never [win]
    Leave me in your words to find every time
    Every time I try, Every time you

    Talk about, talk about it
    At least it makes you feel something inside
    [----------]
    Oh god
    Everything, everything around me is crumbling at my feet
    Everything, everything around me is crumbling at my feet
    I stare so delicate and ashamed
    [Every time I turned] myself from
    I stare so delicate and ashamed

    [--most of this part doesn't sound right--]
    [--but I can't make it out--]

    And I will never look back
    And I will never
    I'll never look back again

    General CommentOk, this song was just put up on their Purevolume page, and the lyrics are completely different. Anyone have the real ones?

    General CommentWhat the heck happened here.
    No, these aren't the right lyrics.
    The right ones are currently under "A Moment Suspended in Time"

    General CommentCD is amazing. Please don't post leaks again, the order was wrong and it screwed it up. Here are the actual lyrics though:

    Someone please turn the lights back on
    We've been wandering in here for days, disconnected and in search
    for new air to breathe in.

    I don't think I can fix this.
    Don't think I could change.

    But that's the problem
    We never speak to Him
    Our closing walls have caged us in.
    And I can't quite remember

    This was the first time I didn't say enough.
    This was the only time I kept it close enough.

    Brace yourself! They're not waking up.

    Oh my God,
    I hate the me that I've become.
    The needy useless, forgetting one
    Truthfully I can't be the me that I've washed up to be.

    Don't stop breathing,
    the walls have just begun to spin.
    Just let the water calm you this time.
    It's all around you just open your eyes and take a look.
    It will never kill you, not this time.

    It's all around you
    We're surrounded for all I care.

    Brace yourself right now.
    Lights out and I'm not breathing.
    I can't keep swimming, can't keep my head up.

    General CommentIs it possible to delete the crap from before?

    The leak is obviously completely wrong... I wish people would have just waited for the album. It was worth the wait.
