"Somthing to Live For" as written by and Al Byron Paul Evans....
Told to follow
Hard to swallow
Don't you know that they're wasting your time
But they need you
and beseech you
To support their bastion of crime

The darkness is falling
Can we wake up in time?
We can't lose the battle
Lose it today keep the good times away
Give me something to live for
we're finding a way
out of the shadows
You've got to show me that we can live for today

Never listen,
don't ask questions
Don't expect them
To tell you the truth
They'll deceive you and besiege you
With the lies they disguise just for you

The darkness is falling
Can we wake up in time?
We can't lose the battle
Lose it today keep the good times away
Give me something to live for
we're finding a way
out of the shadows
You've got to show me that we can live for today

Fall and sorrow
For tomorrow
Days of pain that are waiting for you
Time is bleeding
Keeps repeating
My lifetime to find out the truth

The darkness is falling
Can we wake up in time?
We can't lose the battle
Lose it today keep the good times away
Give me something to live for
we're finding a way
out of the shadows
You've got to show me that we can live for today

    General CommentI think it's about soldiers.

    told to follow
    hard to swallow
    don't you know that they're wasting your time?
    but they need you
    and besiege you
    to support they're bastion of crime

    It could also be about society that tells you to follow and you don't really have a choice...

    General CommentYou could be correct about that... I can see this fitting the image of a soldier.

    However, I personally feel this song can represent a multitude of things. Nothing in particular, but generally speaking, but that line... Give me something to live for, its something that everyone thinks.

    General CommentI think it's about realizing how fucked up everything in the world is, and you're wondering "is life really worth living through all this shit?"

    The song could also relate to the government ("don't you know that their wasting your time", "don't expect them to tell you the truth") or even organized religion, due to Reason to Believe's religious undertone
