"Definition of destiny" as written by Jon Gallant, Aaron Solowoniuk, Ian D'sa and Ben Kowalewicz....
Won't you stop, take a breath
Find a moment to reflect
On the pure and simple choices that we fail to see

From the worst to the best
From the east coast to the West
On a neverending quest to end our misery

So cut to the chase, it's time to escape
Before it's too late
Yeah pick up the pace, catch up with fate
It's slipping away
So get off my road, no I won't be told
'Cause I got my own (definition of destiny)
Yeah take back control, and don't let it go,
The future's unknown (definition of destiny)

(Definition of destiny)

Punch the clock to a own
While our lives are put on hold
When did all our childhood dreams begin to disappear?

Well a long time ago
We had passion, we had goals
Why is life so set in stone it doesn't have to be?

So cut to the chase, it's time to escape
Before it's too late
Yeah pick up the pace, catch up with fate
It's slipping away
So get off my road, no I won't be told
'Cause I got my own (definition of destiny)
Yeah take back control, and don't let it go,
The future's unknown (definition of destiny)

Oh get off my road, no I won't be told
'Cause I got my own (definition of destiny)
Yeah take back control, and don't let it go,
The future's unknown.

Along the way, we lost our way
So will you change or stay the same?
So in between, reality
And fantasy is destiny

So cut to the chase, it's time to escape
Before it's too late
Yeah pick up the pace, catch up with fate
It's slipping away
So get off my road, no I won't be told
'Cause I got my own (definition of destiny)
Yeah take back control, and don't let it go,
The future's unknown (definition of destiny)

Yeah take back control, and don't let it go,
The future's unknown (definition of destiny)
'Cause I got my own
Yeah I got my own
Yeah I got my own(definition of destiny)
(definition of destiny)
(definition of destiny)
(definition of destiny)

    This song covers something that is rarely touched on in alot of music. And I completely agree with the message. Most people just assume that the song only goes as far as the lyrics. But I think this song should get people thinking further than that. Even get you questioning yourself.. "Whats happening? I'm not even doing what I want to do!" The fact is most of us in any American/Western type country is really doing what we want to do.

    Ever wonder who's behind it all? Who honestly wants all those skyscrapers? Who wants to go to war and kill people? Who doesn't care about global warming, Who is out there pushing globalisation to the next level! and using average people to do it. We need to work to live, and most of us will take anything we can get. And Billy Talent (I know it's the band name, not a person) would still like to think

    "The future’s unknown"

    I wish it was. But it's just obvious that things are not controlled by the percentage anymore. Not without some kind of revolution. It takes more than just a change of government america!

    The future's grim.

    General CommentPunch the clock till we're old
    While our lives are put on hold

    ^^This part needs an edit.

    I love this song! They song is pretty much self explanatory, your life is short, do what you can with it, while you can, don't let others force you on a path you don't want to go.

    General CommentThis song is probably the weakest on the album lyrically.

    My take at the song is that it's a non-conformity anthem, and is trying to break the normal human cycle of, "Grow up, get married, have kids..." etc.
