It’s a beautiful landscape
The sunset makes the coast look so clear
It’s the kind that makes your heart break
But no one has those kinds of problems here

And from the sage brush comes a dove
It comes to take away the ones you love
And from camouflage comes the dove
And it comes to take away the ones you love

Wake up you faithless
See your heart break gone

The wolf has found a way
To lead this foolish flock of sheep astray
And the clouds make fearful noises
And slowly turn black and shake
The darkness comes around you
And darkness comes to take

And it will cut the life right from you
Leave you standing in the rain
With nowhere left to run to
And no one left to love you but the pain

Wake up you faithless
See you heartbreak gone
There is no use trying to hold on
Wake up you faithless
You won’t be here for long
And this shipwreck will soon be gone

All that I know is what I’ve learned from troubled times
I’ve stood alone on the last shore
Weapon in hand under black skies
I have been hunted through the valleys
And the corners of my life
Fight or Die

Wake up you faithless
See your heartbreak gone
It’s no use trying to hold on
Wake up you faithless
You won’t be here for long
And this shipwreck will soon be gone

Wake up you faithless

    General CommentAfter reading through these lyrics again, I'm pretty sure its saying that through every heartbreak in your life, and through Satah chasing you down, God is the only source of rescue.

    General CommentI think it's pretty clear, it's telling us to wake up! :P
    It's about letting go of the shipwreck of a life you've made and trusting in God, and He will forgive you.

    General CommentI think it's about losing someone you love due to death. The dove comes to take away the ones we love. It tells us that if we're faithless, that makes losing someone SO much harder to deal with. But when we "wake up" our heart break is gone because now we know they're in a better place with God. The hard times after a loss is the shipwreck but they're gone when we have a faith.
