They're letting their eyes cross
'Cause they don't know, they don't know what we know
That these lights are only here
To lead us in the wrong direction
Or to a false impression

Impact is up to us

And it's all these days that kept us so far away
We can break out of this name
We could give ourselves meaning
We were never sorry for the choices that we've made
Not to sing in your name, but what is faith

Not in the mood to chase
Not after these things will never change
A small claim to the stories we've told
Who says we're wrong
With waking arms we stood so strong

Impact is inevitable and it's up to us

And it's all these days that kept us so far away
We can break out of this name
We could give ourselves meaning
We were never sorry for the choices that we've made
Not to sing in your name, but what is faith

I hope I'm not the only one
With these words sitting on my tongue
I'm not afraid to say this
Only drowning men could see
That's not enough for me

And it's all these days that kept us so far away
We can break out of this name
We could give ourselves meaning
We were never sorry for the choices that we've made
Not to sing in your name, oh what is faith

    General CommentI think this song is really just about living life to the fullest. if you're going to do something, do it for yourself, and not for anyone else. don't regret anything you do. you control how things affect you, not the other way around.

    General CommentSierra wrote in a recent blog on their myspace that this song was inspired by her experience at this super hardcore catholic school. Hence the line 'not to sing in your name, but what is faith?'
