"Ashes of the Innocent" as written by Matthew Tuck, Jason James, Michael Kieron Paget and Michael David Thomas....
Ashes of the Innocent,
The end for you and me,
Darkened screams of agony,
Are begging set me free,
Mourning all your loved ones,
As their bodies turn to stone,
Violence hate and agony,
Are what we've grown to know,

Hold me show me,
Bring me to my knees,
So as the fire burns,
And the tables turn,
We'll never rest in peace,
Rest in peace,

Ashes of the Innocent,
Remind me of the past,
Taking scars of victory,
The time has passed too fast,
Singing broken melodies,
Like shrads of broken glass,
Ripping through my reverie,
These scares will never last,

Hold me show me,
Bring me to my knees,
So as the fire burns,
And the tables turn,
We'll never rest in peace,
Rest in peace x2

    General CommentI definitely get the feeling this is about the holocaust. I think the name of the song alone is enough to come to that conclusion and the lyrics certainly fit.

    General CommentI haven't an idea what this song is trying to say, but I do know it has what I can only describe as "face melting double bass."

    General CommentUnreal thing that I got into first time I heard it xD
    Meaning is :

    Scars don't let us to forget what we've done
    "We'll never rest in peace"

    No matter what is going on, all we want is just to be embraced by the ones we love
    "Hold me show me,
    Bring me to my knees,"

    General Commentall i can say is:

    its one of the hardest songs they have.

    and i love it so much.

    and the double bass indeed melts your face off.

    and the guitar solo will blow your mind.

    and the vocals would make your ears bleed.

    General CommentI think this song is like a continuation of Scream Aim Fire. More about war and the effect it has on just normal people, and all you want to do is just be with the people you love, but you know that the terror won't just go away.
