"A New Momentum" as written by and Peter/loeffler Loeffler....
Should we ignore
This was too intense
Too awful
Please stand still
To seize them all
His monetary gain equals
His monetary mind

Even if the saints gave their all
Like lions in the face of a
Growing crowd
Too little and too late on the day
When all will fall

So drawing into one another keeps
Momentum driving forward like a
Torching sun

Could sleep forever
In spite of this look
A look so scared
Sitting here with nothing new
To add
And crying out you never seemed
Forced
It's just the kind of fuel that I need
To feel reborn

Feeding off the chase right before
Is like biting into ankles
Pulling round
To finish one more phase
Get the key
When all will fall

So drawing into one another keeps
Momentum driving forward like a
Torching sun

Learn to choose to breathe
Then stitch your arm to me

So drawing into one another keeps
Momentum driving forward like a
Torching sun

    General Comment"And even if the saints gave their all
    Like lions in the face of a growing crowd
    To little and too late, on the day
    When all will fall"- Reference to Romans feeding Christians to the lions in the arena.
    Chevelle is really one of the most cryptic bands in their lyrics. I love it, yet it frustrates me when I try to connect to the lyrics.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs from the album, and even all the albums. Its almost could be like a jig-saw game from the movies 'saw'. what with the 'bitting into ankles' most games were disturbing, 'pulling around to finish one more phase' same thing, gotta complete all his games to win/live, 'get the key' is self explanatory, 'learn to choose to breathe' it was always a choice they had to make, live or die. 'stitch your arm to me' loosely, is like if you win, you realize the value of life and stay with him and continue his work. Im NOT saying the song is about the movies, but it was just something i was thinking about... could even mean the same thing the movies did. The value of life and such...

    General CommentI'm not sure but here goes.....
    some disaster that couldn't be ignored took place because of some stingy guy (maybe the government or some dictator of the past)and even if the good guys gave their all and they are like lions in the face of a growing crowd they tried to get through to everyone but obviously couldn't catch every single prey..the others escape and it'll be too late
    so drawing into .....keeps momentum------this song being basically about UNITY..explains the chorus that we could unite to create a new force that would be advantageous hence torching toward the sun
    the 2nd stanza is about the greedy and selfish people who try to save themselves he ends it saying thatwe survive only by sticking together

    thank you

    My InterpretationChristians are fueled by our creator and converting non-believers, non-believers are fueled by corrupting worship of a false base, or "eradicating" Christianity. Like KrakenAttack said, the lions refer to Romans feeding Christians to lions. And when it's saying "When all will fall" it means both sides are "racing to the finish," or the end of the world, trying to (with a grain of salt) win.
