"Now or Never" as written by and Nathan D/leone Leone....
"Now Or Never"

Too long in the same place
I'm sinking into this town.
I've charmed the same old snakes
I think we gotta get out
Before I break away from me
This place is my lobotomy.
Imagine we were dead
Counting all the things we never did.

I remember when you told me
I should live like I'm dying
Not to close my eyes
While everything burns.

What are we waiting for?
These years are dying slowly,
Today is still in front of us
And we're breaking out
'cause today is now or never.

I can't contemplate the earth
All while my heads in the sand
'cause I've been buried alive
So take my bleeding hands
And breathe life into me
'cause right now I'm suffocating.
I imagine we were dead
Counting all the things we never did.

I remember when you told me
I should live like I'm dying
And not to close my eyes while
Everything burns.

What are we waiting for?
These years are dying slowly,
Today is still in front of us
And we're breaking out
'cause today is now or never.

I don't want a life of agony
I won't be another tragedy
And close my eyes while everything burns.
And I won't pretend I don't exist
Invisible until I turn to dust,
Open your eyes we're still alive.

Standing still is criminal
And never lasts forever.
The safest place in life is now,
Today's the day we're breaking out..

I remember when you told me
I should live like I'm dying
And not to close my eyes
While everything burns.

What are we waiting for?
These years are dying slowly,
Today is still in front of us
And we're breaking out
'cause today is now or never.

    General CommentI'll give my point of view out for this song

    "Too long in the same place
    I'm sinking into this town." - It means he's getting sick of being in the same place as he has been for years [[same with me >.>]]

    "Before i break away from me
    Cuz this place is my lobotomy." - This part sorta confuses me. "Before I break away from me" clearly means before he loses his mind. But a lobotomy is a surgical incision to the brain when nerves in a body has failed, so I guess it means that the place he's in is getting too boring to live.... I'm not sure =/ so dun make fun of me >.>

    "Imagine we were dead
    Counting all the things we never did." - Means that he's imagining what all he didn't do that he could have before he died to make his life more pleasing and enjoyable.

    "I remember when you told me
    I should live like i'm dying
    And not to close my eyes
    While everything burns."

    The first two lines means that someone had told him that he should get off his ass and do something as much as he's not. You know, he would be doing nothing, moping around, when someone tells him to get up and enjoy life a lot more. The last two lines... I think it means... Don't ignore the fact that his life is passing away quickly.

    What are we waiting for? --Duh, why are they sitting around doing nothing?
    These years are dying slowly, -- They need to do something before their lives are gone
    Today is still in front of us -- They still have their life to live
    And we're breakin out --They're gonna live to the fullest
    Cuz today is now or never. --Yeah, now or never xD

    "I can't contemplate the earth
    All while my heads in the sand
    Cuz i've been buried alive
    So take my bleeding hands
    And breathe life into me
    Cuz right now i'm suffocating.
    So imagine we were dead
    Counting all the things we never did."

    This means that he can't go out and view the earth and do what he wants because of some problem he may have, so he wants someone [[breathe life into him because he's suffocating]] to give him an optimistic boost so they can go out and do enjoyable things

    "I don't want a life of agony
    I wont be another tragedy
    And close my eyes while everything burns.
    And i won't pretend i don't exist
    Invisible until i turn to dust,
    Open your eyes we're still alive."
    [[I don't want a life of agony]] He doesn't want to sit in his house and watch a t.v that only picks up static xD
    [[I won't be another tradgedy]] He doesn't want to be another one of those people who have wasted their lives doing nothing who had potential but didn't attempt to make a change in the world
    The rest of that verse just plainly means that he doesn't want to ignore his life or his potential and he plans on making a change in the world and doing something to fulfill his life.

    "Stannding still is criminal
    And never lasts forever.
    The safest place in life is now,
    Today's the day we're breakin out.."
    This verse means that doing nothing with your life will get you nowhere and you don't live forever, you'll regret that you didn't do anything while you were alive

    This is my point of view on this sing, I'm no poetic genious. I'd really like to hear other's opinions on what this song means

    General CommentThis is, by far, my favourite Madina Lake song ever. I live by the words "The safest place in life is now, today's the day we're breaking out"

    This song, to me is about living life to it's fullest, it's an inspirational song, and that's why it's my favourite. But to tie it into the whole Madina Lake story I think it's one of two things.
    1) This is how he originally meets Adalia (she breathes life into him) or
    2) This is both of them trying to escape Madina Lake because they realize they won't reach their full potential if they stay.

    But in general, I think it's just about getting up, and doing something with your life or else you're gonna end up dying with no real experiences, regrets, and disappointment.

    General Commenti agree with all of you guys. i remember that one country song that was "live like you were dying" and it just reminds me of that... although Madina Lake can rock it out better than any country song. I think it's pretty much saying that you can't keep putting things off until tomorrow or else you'll never do them and regret it later that you didn't. motivational and amazing. not to mention that the whole madina lake concept is awesome.

    General CommentI really love this song.. x

    As for the meaning;
    I think it means that You should do whatever you want to do; becuse tomorrow, you could end up dead! :] Not to be depressing or anythin'. Lol x
    'I remember when you told me, i should live like im dying'
    Well, i just explained that.
    'But not to close my eyes while everything burns'
    Say like.. Have fun, but don't be ignorant of everything else which is happening in the world...

    What are we waiting for?
    These years are dying slowly,
    Today is still in front of us
    And we're breakin out
    Cuz today is now or never.

    Well, what are you waiting for? :]
    I think this means that the years are going past so fast.. and if you don't make the most of it.. you'll find that you'll grow older with less happy memorys..
    And they'll all fade, so you need to replace them ^^. That parts nothing to do with it. Just got carried away. Lol x

    I don't want a life of agony (Want to die with happy memorys)
    I wont be another tragedy (He'll do his best to live to the full, never regret anything)
    And close my eyes while everything burns. (He'll live to the full, but won't be ignorant of other people suffering.. where when he's sad.. he's resons are pretty pathetic compared to others :l)
    And i won't pretend i don't exist (He'll Make More of his life.. and wont stick to the shadows.)
    Invisible until i turn to dust, (Make the most of life untill he dies)
    Open your eyes we're still alive.

    HES ALIVE! There alive, so why act like your dead?
    Why hide in the shadows when you could be having the time of your life?

    :] Live life to teh full x

    ^^.

    Tbh, this songs pretty self explainatry.

    Oh Yh, Btw, Labotomy?

    :]
