"Gimme Half" as written by and Daniel Williams Christopher Rubey....
Keep this on your mind,
Keep it within your eyelids.
We have ascended countless stairs,
Perhaps it gas interrupted our thoughts.

Regret is an inception, regret is a beginning.
Miles and miles of wires build the apparatus,
But don't mistake power lines for shelter.
I forgot and it will more than likely happen again.

Drink and binge the waters of the sea.
Keep this on your mind,
Keep it within your eyelids.
Don't climb for a lifetime only to fall short of infinity.

Everything is left.
With faith, some minds are sand
But I prefer concrete.
This is what is going to separate us from them.
Time for the next chapter.
Keep this on your mind,
Keep it within your eyelids.

    General Commentwell I'm gonna try and take a shot at figuring out what this song means.

    to me, it seems like he's talking about how in the end times, when the rapture happens. people are going to be left behind and how believers of Christ are different from all the non-believers. "this is what is going to separate us from them"

    maybe he's saying all the things of this world will be gone in the end and that we shouldn't rely on them. "but don't mistake power lines for shelter".

    and how people try their whole life to "earn" their way to heaven, but fall short in the end "don't climb for a lifetime only to fall short of infinity". those people have built their lives on sand rather than the concrete God provides. " with faith, some minds are sand; but i prefer concrete."

    that's my take on it. let me know what you think.

    We have once again ____ ____, perhaps it has and interrupted our thoughts
    Regret is isn't reception
    Regret is isn't beginning

    Miles and miles of wires building up around us but don't mistake paralights/parallels for shelter
    I forgot as it will more than likely happen again, happen again

    This is what is going to seperate us from them

    Move
