The messenger came out of nowhere.
The name was clear, yet unreachable
All around us and we never even thought to look around, tearing us apart.

This is Fact, the message is clear. You cannot deny it. They are here. We cannot deny it.

The reminder was vague,
Our hearts were made
For a much higher purpose

Everything happens for a reason. the greet, the meet, the kiss, the fight, the break, the tears, the lies, the knife

Stay away from the emergency exit, we aren’t quite done yet.

We stared and stared and stared into those blank eyes.
It is burning
The messenger was there.

Be careful of that mind of yours, they say. It can play tricks on you.

Pollute the mind and your asking for it.

Thinking that life matters is an understatement
There is a larger war going on than guns and missiles, and it is too close for comfort. Have you fought the good fight?

I’ve found deeper meaning in this game, and I am scared to hell because of it.
Fear is another way of saying you realized the deeper secrets of mankind.

    General Commentit sounds kind of like maybe a song about religion.
    like "Our hearts were made For a much higher purpose"
    and "I’ve found deeper meaning in this game, and I am scared to hell because of it. " sounds like a pun.
    like he realizes something and is scared to hell?
    or the messenger thing, because most religions believe in
    prophets and such.
    really though, i have no clue.
    I'm just guessing...
    but this song is effin crazy.
    i love it.

    General CommentIsn't it "Thinking that life matters is an UNDERSTATEMENT" ?

    An overstatement would be contradicting the rest of the song. I hear understatement, anyway.

    General CommentIt's Epic, To Say The Least. Meh, Still Awesome. Maybe The Messenger Was Just A Revelation Or An Epiphany?

    General CommentAm i the only one who thinks this s religous?
    "Came out of nowhere" could be talking about Jesus an his travels. and his name is clear. He was trying to break us out of our bad deeds like tearing us apart. He is always watching and our higher purpose is to forgive. When we watched him die on the cross we stared and stared into those blank eyes. And we cant deny that he is back and that he is here


    Anyone agree?
