"The Few That Remain" as written by and Daniel Coddaire Mike Green....
Come on and break down, show us who you are
Memorable first impressions only get you far
When you stay true, from beginning to end
Flexing all your morals your environment will bend back
As you bend crooked

Come in and break down, fake personas from your heart
I used to hang on every verse when my days would get hard
Flash forward, to a present day and time
A fraud, a hoax, a method actor reading scripted lines back
Why'd you take that path?
There's no way back

We are the spark that once would ignite pilot light burning deep in your heart
We are the start of making yourself out to be bigger than you really are
Conscience is calling
Come and shut it up

And yeah I know life gets rough sometimes
Big dollars take the pressure off of hard times
But gluttony's a sin
And hunger will not let you in if you don't get a grip
Use some self help to control it

Woah, woah guys, um, is it cool if I get in on this here?
Hell yeah
Dude go for it

All right listen
Oh I see you ready, set go
With with unqualified pry orders of your disguise explode
Watch us double up on those who try to intimidate unaware yeses
Fabrications of a buster living within a lite
If you come back you'll have to get, get, get, get, get through all of us

We are the spark that once would ignite pilots light burning deep in your heart
We are the start of making yourself out to be bigger than you really are

You instilled, helped to build
A belief within in me that I carry to this day
Pass the torch, I can't no more
What a shame, who's to blame when the mighty fall from grace?
Go settle up, with the kids fed up
This time we can't for you to man on up
Right
I count for all your crimes
Go settle up, with the kids fed up
This time we want for you to man on up

Right now, I want you to sing it
I want to know why you abandoned this and now hate it
Just why? But you don't know why
Such an elusive, guileful, meaningless sham

Come on and break down
Come on and break down
Come on and break down
Come on and break down
Break down

Come on break down
Who, who's to blame?
Break down
I say who, who's to blame?
Break down
Who's to blame, take the shame, when the mighty fall from grace?

    General Commentthe first ???????????? is

    "Come on and break down fake personas from your art."

    and the second one in that verse is

    "A fraud, a hoax, a method actor reading scripted lines back"

    and one more change is " flash forward" not "slash forward"

    General Comment"when the mighty falls on this" is "when the mighty fall from grace" (shows up twice, last line and earlier)

    "illusive guyal full" is "elusive, guileful"

    General Commenthere are all the lyrics

    come on and break down and show us who you are
    Memorable first impressions only get you far
    When you stay true from beginning to end.
    Flexing all your morals, your environment will bend back
    As you bend crooked.

    Come on and break down fake personas from your art.
    I used to hang on every verse when my days would get hard.
    Flash forward to present day and time:
    A fraud, a hoax, a method actor reading scripted lines back.
    Why'd you take that path?
    There's no way back.

    We are the spark that once would ignite a pilot light burning deep in your heart.
    The start of making yourself out to be bigger than you really are.

    Conscience is calling, come and shut it up.
    Yeah I know life gets rough sometimes
    And big dollars take the pressure off of hard times,
    But gluttony's a sin and hunger will not let you win if you don't get a grip.
    Use some self will to control it, hold it.

    [Hayley Williams:]
    "Wooah guys uhm, is it cool if I get in on this here?"
    (Hell yeah!)
    (Dude, go for it!)

    [Hayley Williams:]
    Alright listen!
    (Ohhhh)
    I see you ready, set, go.
    With unqualified pride, orders of your disguise explode.
    [ Set Your Goals Lyrics are found on songlyrics.com ]
    Watch us double up on those who try to intimidate unaware eyes.
    Fabrications of a buster living within a lie.
    If you come back you'll have to get (get, get, get, get)
    Through all of us.

    We are the spark that once would ignite a pilot light burning deep in your heart.
    The start of making yourself out to be bigger than you really are.
    You instilled, helped to build
    A belief within me that I carry to this day.
    You passed the torch and cared no more.
    What a shame. Who's to blame when the mighty fall from grace?

    Go settle up with the kids fed up.
    This time we want for you to man on up right
    And account for all your crimes.
    Go settle up with the kids fed up.
    This time we want for you to man on up
    Right now, I want you to say it.
    I wanna know why you abandoned this and now hate it. Just why?
    But you don't know why.
    Such an elusive, guileful, meaningless sham.

    Come on and break down
    Come on and break down
    Come on and break down
    Come on and break down
    Break down
    Break down
    Who's to blame?
    Tell me who, who's to blame. Take the same.
    Now when the mighty fall from grace?

    General CommentMatt: "This is sort of a sequel to 'The Fallen.' There is a state of mind that we as a group of individuals share, encompassing a passion for the things we want in life and a rejection of the things we despise all around us...an ethic that our fallen heroes have long since abandoned, time reveals true character and the only solution is to strive to be our own heroes. We must serve as the spark that ignite the pilot light of change we desperately seek. We want to thank our artistically like minded friend Hayley Williams for collaborating on this track with us. there was a large amount of hip hop influence happening in the song and we wanted to just run with it and have fun on the vocals all around. We were very excited to work together with Hayley on a song that challenged us all to think in a stylistically different and creative way.

    General CommentJust like Prominent's posting of Matt's response, I see this song as incredibly inspiring. But I would like to focus on the positive more so than others might. You can't really get distracted with the anger you have toward fallen role models, but you just gotta stick to your guns all the way through. It's like if you were running a marathon, and if a friend who has inspired you to start running was running the race too, but halfway through, that friend stops running, you can't let that get you. You just gotta go as far as you can. It's your race now. The source of inspiration has to be within you.
