"Cannonball" as written by Dan Marsala, Ryan Phillips, Joshua Wills, Phillip Sneed and Adam Russell....
Go!

Yeah
This clock is counting down
To a final resignation
Another crowning curtain call
A global meltdown
Leaves a trail of devastation
It carves the writing on the wall, oh you know

We've never seen this kind of world
It's a warning to us all
We've never seen this kind of world
And I hope that we can stop this cannonball
Stop this cannonball

We play the lead role
With a lack of education
And pay a price we'll never know
Our future's been sold
By a profit margin generation
We're all invited to the show, oh you know

We've never seen this kind of world
It's a warning to us all
We've never seen this kind of world
It's a warning to us all
We've never seen this kind of world
And I hope that we can stop this cannonball
Stop this cannonball

'Cause when it all comes crashing down
Down from above there will be no salvation
Is there anything that can save us, from ourselves

Oh!

We've never seen this kind of world
It's a warning to us all
No, we've never seen this kind of world
It's a warning to us all
Oh, we've never seen this, we've never seen this, kind of world
Oh, we've never seen this, we've never seen this
And I hope that we can stop this cannonball
Stop this cannonball

Oh!

    General Commenti think its about global warming
    and how "we've never seen this kind of world, its a warning to us all", we should do something about it and prevent it going worse in the future
    "we played the lead role
    with a lack of education
    and pay a price we'll never know
    our future's been sold"
    we, humans, have played the lead role to this destruction, because of our lack of education and ignoring the signs that have been there for so many years, and now we are too far into it, we know what will happen to our future, global warming going worse.
    "cause when it all comes crashing down -
    down from above there will be no salvation
    is there anything that can save us - from ourselves"
    i think this is talking about, how when everything is finally ruined, there wont be any salvation and we cant save us from ourselves, because weve all contributed to global warming.
    yeah thats just my opinion
    i respect soty so much, they write about so meaningful things

    General Commenti took the salvation part as basically saying "at the end of the world, the end of all things they will be no salvation from jesus, is there anything that can save us? is meaning is there anything that can stop us from fighting in wars?

    General Commentyeah
    ive just thought of something new to continue off matthews comment

    the salvation part means like, no one can save us, not even jesus, not even god (if they are real, which i dont believe they are).
    but yeahh
    weve destroyed this earth too much now to go back
    we only have the worse to expect in the future

    My OpinionYoure entitled to your opinions but Phil, Josh, and (i think) Ryan are Christians so they wouldn't have lyrics that say no salvation from Jesus or god or whatever religion. Probably about global warming. This album is very political.
