"Ben Has a Kid" as written by and Michael Hranica Jeremy Depoyster....
I mean this, I'm not sure if you could say the same.
Week after week after week
Idolatry is wasted reverence, idolatry is the yellow on your teeth.
Gasp for the truth you once lived,
Beyond this world is what is always breathing,
Beyond this world is worth dying for.

I remember what you used to claim,
You can't bury conviction with anything.
Our message will grow,
No matter the mistakes made within construction.

Beyond this world is what is always breathing,
Beyond this world is worth dying for.
Gasp for the truth you once lived,
I pray that stolen glimpses do not subtract from what we've been building.
Keep stride persist in our march.

    General Commenti think this song is about how sometimes as christians, we lose our focus and forget what we stood for in the first place, when we were first so fervent in our salvation. it is a reminder of the message that truly is worth dying for and encouragement that our mistakes are able to be overcome. 'you can't bury conviction with anything' is nodding to the fact that we should have a kind of fervor for the message that cannot be overshadowed by other people's cynicism and doubt.

    General CommentBeyond this world is what is always breathing, beyond this world is worth dying for.

    I think this part is referring to eternity and the afterlife that Christians are taught to strive for. Idk if that makes sense but when I first heard it, that's what I immediately thought of.

    General CommentBeyond this world is what is always breathing,
    Beyond this world is worth dying for.

    Definitley my most favorite line in this song, not only are the vocals good but it has a clear meaning,

    Beyond our lives on Earth in heaven is what i see this line saying. and it's truly worth dying for and living for to Christians.

    General CommentI agree completely with chelsrouk. "Gasp for the truth you once lived" (I always thought he said "loved") is explaining that the Truth is what you should live off of, like you live from breathing air. Always keep focus and don't let anything get you down, because God is waiting beyond this world.
