"We're Not Gonna Make It" as written by Dan Marsala, Ryan Phillips, Joshua Wills, Phillip Sneed and Adam Russell....
Oh!

He steps a shot foot into the room
She knows that this day's been long over due
Now as the tears fall down her face
The pain is real and it's starting to show

She says I know
We're not gonna make it (We're not gonna make it)
Until the lines that divide start to fade away
We're not gonna make it (We're not gonna make it)
Until the lines that divide start to fade away

And with a whisper she mumbles through
I guess they just won't accept me and you
They see a difference in skin
But I thought that love was always true
Who would have known?
That in a search for a parent's love
Her happiness though is just not enough (Not enough)
She tries to keep it inside
But through these hopeless eyes the world isn't mine

She says I know
We're not gonna make it (We're not gonna make it)
Until the lines that divide start to fade away
We're not gonna make it (We're not gonna make it)
Until the lines that divide start to fade away

(I'll show you) Until the line starts to fade away
(I'll show you) Until the line starts to fade away

I know I can show you that I'm not afraid
No! (Because tomorrow will come)
And no I'm not afraid
(And we will no longer run)
And no I'm not afraid
(Because tomorrow will come)
And I am not afraid, not afraid

We're not gonna make it
Until the lines that divide start to fade away
We're not gonna make it
Until the lines that divide start to fade away
We're not gonna make it (We're not gonna make it)
Until the lines that divide start to fade away
We're not gonna make it (We're not gonna make it)
Until the lines that divide start to fade away
(I'll show you) The line starts to fade away
(I'll show you) The line starts to fade away
(I'll show you) This line starts to fade
It all starts to fade
It all starts to fade away

Oh!

    General CommentAmazing song. Obviously addressing interracial relationships and the unnecessary drama that follows. One of the best songs on the new record.

    General CommentPolitical, environemental, and social problems where the core to this album.

    Much better then their previous album, but not as good as Page Avenue

    General CommentI'm totally impressed with the amount of emotion packed into this song. Such a roller coaster. Second only to Me Vs. the World by Madina Lake for sheer amazing vocals. Great writing and sung in a way that just sucks you in. Meaning is self explanitory. Such a wonderful song

    General CommentBrilliant song. I think it's pretty obvious what it's about.. But I think it can also be universal in some ways. I know I related to it in my own relationship. You want eachother.. But deep down you know it's not going to work, and you'll probably break up
