"Lost" as written by Zachary James Baker, Matthew Charles Sanders, Jr. Haner and James Owen / Sullivan....
Centuries passed and still the same
War in our blood, some things never change
Fighting for land and personal gain
better your life, justify our pain
The end is knocking
The end is knocking

We've all been lost for most of this life
(lost for most of this life)
Everywhere we turn more hatred surrounds us
And I know that most of us just ain't right
(most of us just ain't right)
Following the wrong steps, being led by pride

How many lives will we take
How many hearts destined to break
Nowhere to run, can't escape
Full of ourselves, tied to our fate
The end is knocking
The end is knocking, yeah

We've all been lost for most of this life
(lost for most of this life)
Everywhere we turn more hatred surrounds us
And I know that most of us just ain't right
(most of us just ain't right)
Following the wrong steps, being led by pride

With peace of mind so hard to find
We're dwelling on the drastic signs
Another way to numb our mind
And as you close your eyes tonight
and pray for a better life
you'll see it flying helplessly away

We've all been lost for most of this life
(lost for most of this life)
Everywhere we turn more hatred surrounds us
And I know that most of us just ain't right
(most of us just ain't right)
Following the wrong steps, being led by pride

    General Commentthe song is about the atrocities the humans commit every day and pointless war we wage out of pride and greed and how it will bring us into oblivion

    General CommentThis is totally one of the most radical songs on the new album. They pulled some cool sound tricks too.

    Anyway I just see it as our lives as a society are becoming less and less meaningful... which is right. Oh well.

    General Commentno i dont think its quite the same as The Wicked End. The Wicked End was totally about Revalation and the return of Jesus Christ. This is just that the world is turning to shit because of how people are treating each other. "fighting for land and personal gain, better your life justify our pain", shows that A7X is saying that if we would stop worrying about just ourselves, and consider how horrible lives of others are and do something to help them, this world would be a much better place.
