"Before The Damned" as written by and Jason Costa Oli Herbert....
Let them hail the hollow one
Bow before the damned
Forge ahead into the night
Forget the lessons of the past

No remorse for the sinner
No repent for the waking dead
Hide their faces from the light
Let the past live again

We will still set in motion
Changing of the time
We have not forgotten
We control our lives

Fallen feed on fallen now
Let the wretched have their fill
Feast not with the beast of old
Taste the fruit of ill will

We can band together now
Cast the dead from our sites
Let them fall from massacre
Let the truth be our guide

    General CommentI think this song is about learning from the past, particulary, our mistakes and moving on, having these lessons that we've picked up stuck to our mind.

    General Commentlove this song, wish the rest of the album had been as heavy. it was actually kind of upsetting when i listened to the album and this was one of the two heaviest songs, cause its sooo good, the rest of the album is like the diet coke of heavy

    General CommentI had a feeling this band was spiritual based on the name, "all that remains"

    Its a really common phrase in buddhist teachings "all that remains" after the body and mind are taken away is the true self.

    This song is obviously about living as an enlightened being and witnessing the sorrow that is humanity walking around in a waking daze.

    General CommentI think this is about letting Satanics worship Satan and burn in Hell, while theyre living life in heaven. Just a thought
