"In Fate's Hands" as written by and Ronnie Winter....
Go!

I remember a year ago, I was standing in the crowd
Waiting for my chance to break through, my chance to live again
Now it seems I've found some friends who finally understand
What it takes to make this dream come true, we'll be here till the end

Shake it, break it, get off your feet
Come dance with me and don't you fake it
Shake it, break it, get off your feet
Get close to me and don't you fake it

Shout and scream my friends, connect with me and we'll pretend
This night will never end, this night will never end
Just let go you'll see together we'll do anything
This night will never end, this night will never end

Shake it, break it, get off your feet
Come dance with me and don't you fake it
Shake it, break it, get off your feet
Get close to me and don't you fake it

Oh, wish I could thank you all for what you have done
And all of the things that you have shared with me
Oh, wish I could take you all too where I must go
Wish I could take you all, I'll take you in my arms

Get on the floor
Get on the floor
Get on the floor
Get on the floor
Get on the floor

Shake it, break it, get off your feet
Come dance with me and don't you fake it
Shake it, break it, get off your feet
Get close to me and don't you fake it

I'm reachin' out here to show you
What we've been through
I think there's something we can share
That's completely new or maybe I'm just insane, whoa oh

Shake it, break it, get off your feet

    General CommentThey're remembering before they had their big break.
    Even then, I think they knew they had a chance at being this big band.


    "Shake it, break it get off your feet,
    get close to me and don't you fake it."
    I think it's about letting go of all responsiblities for a moment, and having a good time in this lifetime.
    And don't fake anything at all. No matter what, be true to yourself.

    I think this song is basically RJA telling themselves it'll be okay, if you believe in yourself. If you have fun, be true to yourself and everyone in the world. You're you, and that's just awesome. =)

    General CommentWhen I listen to this song, it makes me think that this is how Ronnie feels about finally making it in the music industry. I dont know how much you all read about the RJA and how much you know.. But Ive read that Ronnie and Duke have had to deal with band members losing faith in the band.. and hard times, dreaming of making it. "I remember a year ago I was standing in the crowd waiting for my chance to break through, my chance to live again." This makes me think of how he's looking back and couldve been at a concert, looking up and dreaming he was on stage, instead. The quote "Now it seems I've found some friends who finally understand what it takes to make this dream come true, we'll be here till the end" probably relates to how happy Ronnie was when Elias, Joey and Jon were found for the band. On their site they mentions that when they found these new members it was like fate, hence "In Fate's Hands" (which was also the name of a former metal band that two of RJA's members took part in). I'm also thinking that when the lyrics "Oh, wish I could thank you all for what you have done and all of the things that you have shared with me" relates to Ronnie's perspective on their fanbase; thanking them for all the support, etc. And finally, I think this quote: "I'm reaching out here to show you what we've been through I think there's something we can share, that's completely new" is speaking of the band's personal/confronting lyrics as well as their originality. Wow I just wrote so much...

    General CommentIt is Ass Shaker, except for edited and remade into a more pop verson. Theres alot less screaming in this song then ass shaker. They changed the lyrics just a bit but its basicly the same thing. I like the sounds of ass shaker better though

    General Commentass shaker is the smae song just a little diffrent in the music configuration/guitar riffs. I think song is pretty self-explanitory...but it's about the band's journey and how ronnie winter wanted to have a chance at music. Then he explain how he found a band twith people that have the same ambitions and goals as him. Then is the song when they say,
    "Shake it, break it, get off your feet,
    come dance with me and don't you fake it."
    they are saying how they want people to dance around in the crowd and don't bother faking it if you don't wanna be there. Then they talk abut singin along to the music and just getting lost in having a good time. Then ronnie talks about how they want to thank the fans for supporting them to gettinq where they are today and for sharing the love for the band. And then saying how they willl never forget their fans and they'll keep us in their hearts. Then they last set of lyrics talk about how the band feels they fell they have someting to offer wiht their music that we all can share.

    General CommentI think anyone who liked ass shaker more is kind of weird. If you listen to Ronnie's voice, it sounds like they worked on it more and it sounds a lot better in In Fate's Hands than in Ass Shaker. Also, whoever is screaming (by the way, I'm not sure who the screamer is if someone knows please tell me) does a much better job in this song. In Ass Shaker it has more of a screamo sound that you get from bands like Haste the Day and Underoath, but in Don't You Fake It, all the screaming sounds different and I think its much better this way.
