"We'll Sleep When We're Dead" as written by Beau Mark Bokan, Eric Lambert, Michael Tyler Frisby, Jared Warth, Matthew James Traynor and Michael Elvis Baskette....
Let the light shine in.
Cause We're not alone, We're Not Alone.
Let the light shine in.
Cause We're not Alone, We're Not Alone

We will tear away, We will tear away
This awful feeling, lets start the bleeding.
We will wash away, We will wash away
All of Your doubt
This will be the last time that..
You're never going to hurt again.

I'll never sing this song without you.
Without you
Remember the way that it felt.
You're never going to hurt again.
I'll never sing this song.
Remember the day, Remember.

Hide your makeshift darts.
We're taken aim, We're taken aim
And We won't be leaving.
Hide your makeshift darts.
We're taken aim, taken aim.
We won't be leaving.

We will tear away
We will tear away
This awful feeling,
Lets start the bleeding.
We will wash away
We will wash away
All of Your doubt

This will be the last time that..
You're never going to hurt again.
I'll never sing this song without you.
Without you
Remember the way that it felt.
You're never going to hurt again.
I'll never sing this song.
Remember the day, Remember.
Let your, light shine in tonight, tonight, tonight.

All alone is where we've been before.
All alone is where we started.
All alone is where we've been before.
All alone is where we started.
All alone is where we've been before
All alone is where we started
All alone is where we've been before
All alone is where we started

We'll be testing the martyrs,
We'll be testing the martyrs.
And bringing hell and high waters,
And bringing hell and high waters.
We'll be testing the martyrs,
We'll be testing the martyrs.
And bringing hell and high waters
And bringing hell and high waters

    General Commentthe band had a running contest where the person who stayed awake the longest won a chance to write a song for them to record. the winner was a little girl named Marianne Cress. however, it was found that in order to win, she tracked down the three remaining contestants and killed them with an ice cream scoop. her song was trashed, and this one was written to replace it. this one is about how people are unfair in politics, and how war is corrupt and all that. Marianne was never found. a movie is in the works.

    General CommentThis could possibly mean that the band is moving on without Craig, and they are happy with Beau as his replacement. I think Beau is singing in two perspectives. One being that he is speaking on behalf of the band, saying that they are now united and will stick together, breaking away from the old blessthefall and move on successfully. Two is that Beau is the loyal, new, singer. He is here to do his thing and be faithfully successful!

    Makeshift hearts.
    We're taken aim, taken aim.
    We won't be leaving.

    General CommentWhy does everyone think all lyrics have to be about something special or to do with a band or love or WHATEVERRRR.
    I think its about being stuck in a land full of zombies!
