"Nothing Left" as written by and Samuel Nicholas Hipa Jordan D. Mancino....
This world was never worthy
But how can I call it unfaithful
Every promise was fulfilled
As decay crawled from it's throat
Like the dead rising from an open grave
Lips of splendor and tongue of deceit
All dying now as our fragile wrists hold only waste

Like those gasping for their last breath
We cannot hide there's nothing left

If All my sorrow has led me here
Then I would cry all of my tears
To have this chance again
And know there's more than this
And know there's more than you

Like those gasping for their last breath
We cannot hide there's nothing left

    General Commentafter watching the video a few times,this is what i got from it.in the video you see a woman and many other people being persectued and killed for a sickness that was visible on the skin.the woman,and most likely everyone else who was killed were stripped down and mocked by the crowd of people,then made to 'walk the plank' so to speak.to me,this has a great comparison to what happened to Jesus and what happens to us every day.Jesus was killed and mocked and crucified for claiming to be the son of God.and we as Christians,living in the world we do today,are persecuted for what we believe in.the 'sickness' the woman had was noticeable,just as Christian faith is noticeable.when people see our faith they mock us and persecute us....at least thats what i got from it

    General Comment"We shot the video with director Brian Thompson. He was the perfect match for the concept that we came up with and he did an amazing job. It takes place in a broken down future world where the journey of the main character mimics many themes in the song's lyrics. I originally wrote the lyrics describing the certain decay of the world around us. While more and more people pursue meaningless relationships and desire for material things, I've realized that we have "nothing left" in common. We are seperated by our intentions and the visual concept through the video makes an obvious point that we cannot hide these differences."
    I found that in the info tabo for the music video on youtube.Hope that helps

    General CommentFirst comment huh?
    Well I read somewhere that the video was made in a collapsed civilization wasteland type setting where everything is destroyed because that's what the song is about.

    Great song though!

    General Comment'Think he's talking about Jesus, through God's promises: I will save all the nations of this world.
    Of course, God let us the choice.
    But Jesus has died in extrem suffer, but when he died he said "everything is accomplished"

    A reason to live
    Between people who knows they've got nothing...

    new As I lay Dying is fantastic !!!! ^_^
    I love love love this song
    And I think it is about trying to hold on or find something to live for when it seems that there's nothing left in the world; I'm not sure that it's only about that though
