"Stay Captive" as written by and Jordan Robert/miller Whelan....
Watching for you,
Conceived with no eyes.
Listen for the voice.
Plant within me, eyes that open.
Leading where I walk.

I feel I know you well,
If I were you I'd wait

[Chorus:]
Until someone moves or cares,
Stay captive.
Keep yourself there,
Wait for love. [x2]

I see everything,
Every move I make,
Painted before you.
Stall your move,
Heart that lingers.
I only move for you.

I feel I know you well,
If I were you I'd wait

[Chorus]

[Interlude]

[Chorus]

Wait for love.

Until someone moves or cares,
Wait for love. [x4]

    General CommentYeh, one of Still Remains better songs, from this album anyway.

    I guess it's about waiting for a true love instead of just throwing yourself to someone without thinking twice?

    General CommentThis song seems to me why stress and fret about someone because if there worth it theyll come to you. It sorta saying to a guy stand up and stop chasing which is what a girl wants, you see him put his arm round her and reject him but once he dont show no effection she crawls back to him... the chorus lyrics are bang on! its about time girls did chasing

    General Commentthis song to me is not about a girl or other worldly relationship but instead the love of our eternal father.

    God is the only one that truly can guide us where we walk, and this song seems to me as a prayer asking for God to show him where to go but Gods answer is simply to wait. stay captive in this world until the time comes for me to bring you home. "heart that lingers i only move for you" God comes to those who wait, those who stay patient in their walk. God is always there leading us on but sometimes he tells us to stay put right where we are, and he will do the moving in our lives.
    sometimes we try too hard going out and searching for love, often finding it in all the wrong places such as the bottom of a bottle or in a stranger's bed. when if we stay calm and captive and simply wait that love of God will come to us.

    General CommentMaybe it's about God and a worldly relationship. Maybe it's a combination of waiting for worldly love, but that God will lead us to it. I don't think it's JUST about a girl, or JUST about God. I don't see any references to throwing ourselves on a random relationship, although I guess it is just assumed the listener will pick up on it.

    General Commentthatguy517 is most definately wrong. The song is someone talking to another person... And the last time I checked, nobody really told god OR jesus to "Stay Captive" and "Wait For Love". I'm not being anti-religious, and you can state your own opinion, but I think it's wrong.

    I believe the song is about a realtionship, in a sense. It seems to be about someone who's stuck in an abusive or hurtful relationship, or maybe had just come out of a bad one. Either way, they're telling the person to wait for love, and to Stay Captive under whoever's "love" they are under and wait for something real. Either that, or tomo1811 was on the button. Good estimate, sir!

    General CommentAlso, how's a hardcore band that is often in the genre of death and evil going to have a song that is about God?
