Are you living free?
That the creation itself
Will be liberated
From it's bondage
To decay to the glorious children

Nothing's the same as
when we were abandoned then

We've tied a rope to one end
to alleviate the stress
And pardoned all your attempts at wisdom,
lest we all forget
Lest we all forget about you now

Running around again
Making it all worth seeing

I'll never be complete 'til
We take what's inside
And turn it back again
I'll never be complete 'til
We take what's inside
And turn it back again
Turn it back again before we fall

Taken away from all we are
(Now the walls we shake, my God)
Faith, work your way down every heart
(The more we face our God)

Strike as their consuming
Fight off the bloodthirsty
The battle we fight is a rightful gain
The visions we have show a violent reign

Will you judge this city of bloodshed?
Oh, infamous city you turmoil in
Within you are slanderous men
Restore what was once a beautiful thing

In the face of my God I collapse

We wait for the outcome
Just face what you're running from
(That's all we are, that's all we are
In the face of my God, I Am)
So that in me you may have peace
I have overcome the world
(That's all we are, that's all we are
In the face of my God, I Am)

My refuge, my fortress
Defender, protector
My shelter, my shield
My tower of strength
My refuge, my fortress
Defender, protector
Tower of strength
My tower of strength
Come deliver me

    General Comment"All your attempts at wisdom, let's we all forget, let's we all forget about you now"

    should be

    "All your attempts at wisdom, lest we all forget, lest we all forget about you now"

    but good job.


    I think it's about standing up for your faith... kind of an obvious answer, but sounds right to me.

    General CommentFIRST: the way you typed out these lyrics pisses me off

    SECOND: when i hear "infamous city" i think of Sodom and Gomorrah from the bible... two cities that were destroyed by god for their sin.

    IMO this song is about society's lack of faith.

    General Commenti talked to they guys today at their video shoot.

    and they said the video was about a kid running from demons, through a city. they said they were aiming for an older look to the city, so you may be right ethos27.

    so im guessing its about someone running from 'demons' as being the sins of life
