"Reasons to Live" as written by Frederic Leclercq, Sam Totman, Herman Li and Vadim Pruzhanov....
Once again I'm here alone, my secret life awaits me
Still a thousand miles away from a land of broken dreams
Night falls and the screen is shining, force deception behind the lines
Hours wasted aimlessly gone, time and time again

Try to understand, desperately lost with a dream in my hand
Will you wait alone for me tonight?
Hold me, save me

A star shines in all of us, we'll search for all our lives
One day we'll find a way, and a reason to survive
Cry for the day to return, life no one can understand
We all face our fears in the world
We all hold our place in the universe
For eternity

Hide the lines deceive myself, erase the past from my space
Images of loneliness sent far across the land
Once sure, but my eyes are blinded
Frantic charge for a place to hide
Lost generations apart, an ancient life returns

Kindness in her eyes, taken away by a man in disguise
Won't you wait alone again tonight?
Save me, take me

A star shines in all of us, we'll search for all our lives
One day we'll find a way, and a reason to survive
Cry for the day to return, life no one can understand
We all face our fears in the world
We all hold our place in the universe
For eternity

Try to understand, desperately lost with a dream in my hand
Will you wait alone for me tonight?
Hold me, save me

A star shines in all of us, we'll search for all our lives
One day we'll find a way, and a reason to survive
Cry for the day to return, life no one can understand
We all face our fears in the world
We all hold our place in the universe
For eternity

    General CommentThis song has nothing to do with the internet. It is about a man who is reflecting on his past life and it is depressing him. Every now and then he mentions his girlfriend, asking her to help him out. In the chorus, he realizes that this happens to everyone in life, and it makes him feel better. He has reasons to live.

    Reasons To Live

    Once again I'm here alone, my secret life awaits me,
    Still a thousand miles away from a land of broken dreams,
    Night falls and the screen is shining, force deception behind the lines,
    Hours wasted aimlessly gone, time and time again.

    [Pre-chorus:]
    Try to understand, desperately lost with a dream in my hand,
    Will you wait alone for me tonight?
    Hold me, save me.

    [Chorus:]
    A star shines in all of us, we'll search for all our lives,
    One day we'll find a way, and a reason to survive,
    Cry for the day to return, life no one can understand,
    We all face our fears in the world,
    We all hold our place in the universe,
    For eternity...

    Hide the lines deceive myself, erase the past from my space,
    Images of loneliness sent far across the land,
    Once sure, but my eyes are blinded,
    Frantic charge for a place to hide
    Lost generations apart, an ancient life returns.

    Kindness in her eyes, taken away by a man in disguise,
    Won't you wait alone again tonight?
    Save me, take me.

    [Chorus]

    Spending alot of time on myspace.

    General CommentIt is about myspace, or internet chating in general using the popularity and descreetness of of the name myspace as a tool to get that point to the audiance without openly saying what it is. And it goes deeper. I know from experiance most recently involving my ex wife. allow me to explicate.


    Once again I'm here alone, my secret life awaits me, (Obviously the speaker is lives as a very differnt person online.)
    ----->
    Still a thousand miles away from a land of broken dreams, (The speaker is far frome he cause of their dismay, perhaps figuratively, Literally in my case.)
    Night falls and the screen is shining, force deception behind the lines, (It means that te speaker doesn't tell the whole tuth online)
    ----->
    Hours wasted aimlessly gone, time and time again. (This line should be obvious, Have ye not been there good sais?)

    [Pre-chorus:]
    Try to understand, desperately lost with a dream in my hand.
    Will you wait alone for me tonight?
    Hold me, save me. (The ntire pre Chorus could reffer to a long distance relationship, or a frindship that the speaker desporatelly wants to be more than friendship but is afraid of being hurt again.)

    [Chorus:]
    A star shines in all of us, we'll search for all our lives,
    One day we'll find a way, and a reason to survive,
    Cry for the day to return, life no one can understand,
    We all face our fears in the world,
    We all hold our place in the universe,
    For eternity... (People who are overly used to online frindships/relationships and not very social in real person to person contact and thus become self-made outcasts and have a hard time believeing they can change.

    Hide the lines deceive myself, erase the past from my space, (It could mean something like deleting pictures and comments of/from an ex trying to move on as if you were never with that person.)
    ----->
    Images of loneliness sent far across the land, (The only pictures that the speaker now sends are of the speaker alone, and quite lonely.)
    ----->
    Once sure, but my eyes are blinded,
    Frantic charge for a place to hide
    Lost generations apart, an ancient life returns. (There is a reat deal of confusion in the speaker as to whether he really wants to forget what he had before or move on to something new so soon and he has to start answering questions about what happened between him and his ex "an ancient life returns.")

    Kindness in her eyes, taken away by a man in disguise, (I can only conjecture, and I won't say what I think, but I doubt that your guess is as good as mine.)
    ----->
    Won't you wait alone again tonight?
    Save me, take me.

    I only heard this song for the first time when i bought the extended eddition of Ultra Beatdown yesterday. But it describes something close to my life for the past few months.

    My Interpretationto me this song isnt about myspace or facebook.
    its about a man who did something without telling his love, and he is being locked up for it. he is asking his love too wait for him until he is set free. hoping he can survive that long.
