"Unbound (The Wild Ride)" as written by Zachary James Baker, Matthew Charles Sanders, Jr. Haner and James Owen / Sullivan....
Somewhere life is good, and things go as they should
It's hard to find, but that's alright yeah
Searching for the way, push harder everyday
It's deep inside, that shining light yeah
But I'm scarred, by barriers placed in my path
I'm scathed

This ride that takes me through life
Leads me into darkness but emerges into light
No one can ever slow me down
I'll stay unbound

Sometimes when we're young, and always on the run
It gets so dark and I know that place yeah
So don't be too concerned, you've got a lot to learn
Well so do I and we've got plenty of time yeah
Don't fall off the track yet with so many races to go
Hold on

This ride that takes me through life
Leads me into darkness but emerges into light
No one can ever slow me down
I'll stay unbound

Some live so wrong, with what we do is each his own
But living in fear, endless shame for countless years
I never lived in fear I knew I'd die another day
I never viewed my life as something... slipping away

Some live so wrong, with what we do is each his own
But living in fear, endless shame for countless years
I never lived in fear I knew I'd die another day
I never viewed my life as something... slipping away

There's nothing here to take for granted
With each breath that we take
The hands of time strip youth from our bodies
And we fade
Memories remain
As time goes on

There's nothing here to take for granted
With each breath that we take
The hands of time strip youth from our bodies
And we fade
Memories remain
As time goes on

    I wonder if that's a reference to James Bond? Talk about someone who lived in the moment...

    General Commentthe kid thing is kinda odd...sounds like a british girl to me but anyway.. i adore this song. i looooove the 6/8 bit. and i also am reminded of muse by it. The meaning is generally how life is just completely ridiculous a lot of the time--and that's why it's awesome and like, don't try to hold me back sort of thing. love it lots.

    General Commenti think this song is about how you go through so many different struggles in life...and the decisions you make will have different outcomes. so we each are on our own life-ride. we all make bad decisions at some point, but we learn with each mistake.

    i think it's really just about accepting the consequences to your actions and to do what you want to do. you only have one life to live, so you might as well give life everything you got, and let it give you great things in return.

    awesome song!

    xo.
