"Heading For The Sun" as written by George Pettit, Jordan Hastings, Chris Steele, Dallas Green and Wade Macneil....
They are the nameless victims of a generation lost
Searching for somewhere to exist
Held captive by our mistakes
Weak and unable to resist

Resentful minds have ruled too long
Young and old, weak and strong

We will drag our hindsight through the twilight of this era
To where our freedom reigns and the old thought is laid to dust
Let the philistines wallow in their decadence
While the enlightened minds usher in the dawning of a new

We are heading for the sun
We are
We are heading for the sun
We are
We are heading for the sun
We are
We are heading for the sun

Time will come when we are all condemned
For all the damage we have done
Held accountable for all
Battles lost, battles won

We are heading for the sun
We are
We are heading for the sun
We are
We are heading for the sun
We are
We are heading for the sun

And the earth will coil each year, getting closer to its end
What will our lesson be, when we are all ablaze?
That our benevolence was the start of our decay
Or that we did not learn from the mistakes of the past?

We are heading for the sun
We are
We are heading for the sun
We are
We are heading for the sun
We are
We are heading for the sun

    Song MeaningIm suprise there haven't been more comments on this. The message is clear, its just about how irresponsable people are acting towards the problem of global warming. It also talks about how the younger generations have to live with the mistakes of the past, it is urging a change in the way we thing, "restful minds have ruled to long" and it then talks about how the "enlightened minds usher in the dawning of a new" i presume it means new age.

    General Commentone of my favorites from AOF.
    I love the lines "Let the philistines wallow in their decadence, while the enlightened minds usher in the dawning of a new"

    Dallas's voice sends chills down my spine.
