"White Flags" as written by Jeremy Taggart, Duncan Coutts, Steve Mazur and Raine Maida....
And she says it's cold
And she says the sky's about to fall
How do you know?
Well she says the writing's on the wall

Everything I made I somehow broke
Every word I say I think I stole
I can't explain
But I won't give up the ghost

She looks like an angel
Talks like it's war

And this whole world has gone crazy
God's got a little lazy
We're raising our white flags
And holding our breath
No retreat and no surrendering

And she says it's late
And come on we're heading for the sun
I said now wait
Ah, this battle's just begun

Every line I've crossed has come undone
Everything I know is somehow wrong
I can't escape
And there's nowhere left to run

She looks like an angel
talks like it's war

And this whole world has gone crazy
God's got a little lazy
We're raising our white flags
And holding our breath
But no retreat and no surrendering

I'm gonna fall with you
Crawl with you
Oh no
Oh no
I'm gonna fall with you
I'll break down these walls with you
Oh no
Hey

And this whole world has gone crazy
God's got a little lazy
We're raising our white flags
And holding our breath
Oh, we're trading our black hearts
For angels instead

But no retreat and no surrendering

    General CommentI LOVE this song...and I love that I'm the first to comment on it. I don't think that's happened before, haha.
    Anyway, I think it's pretty much about not giving up no matter how bad things appear to be and that we can make a difference.
    Not necessarily because of the lyrics, but this is one of my favorite songs from the new album, as much as I hate to admit it it's probably because it's so catchy.
    I just love OLP. <3
