(and i will)
be there when you get home
and i will be there when you become all you hate
all you hate when you become
you have to see the floor
you have to see the floor before you
you can see the angels are reaching
cross all the t's dot the i's this is your life
the contract expires when you die
you need to see the bottom of every barrel to know
maybe i was wrong to look in to all the eyes of all of my demons
i would rather stare right back into the eyes of the devil
to find my own face
being alone being alone never felt so good cause i found you
maybe time was wrong (time was wrong)
maybe time was wrong (time heals nothing)
we can all be alone, all alone, all alone
we can all be alone but we will still have you
maybe i'll become all that i hate
maybe i'll become maybe i'll become all i hate
maybe (i'll) become (you)

he will pull all of us out

    Song MeaningI get the feeling this is the steps of a divorce or a teenage break up, "(and i will) be there when you get home and i will be there when you become all you hate" The "talk" of their ending relationship.

    "you have to see the floor you have to see the floor before you", not being able to look your partner in the eyes as they go their separate ways.

    "you can see the angels are reaching, cross all the t's dot the i's this is your life, the contract expires when you die" or till death do us part? This is what gives me the feeling its a ending marriage.

    "you need to see the bottom of every barrel to know, maybe i was wrong to look in to all the eyes of all of my demons, i would rather stare right back into the eyes of the devil, to find my own face" The person left hanging from the ending marriage. They see now that they were the catalyst that ruined the relationship and he/she hates themselves for it.

    "being alone being alone never felt so good cause I found you" This line really throws me for a loop. Maybe he/she found god, or substance abuse, or maybe another person to fall for again.

    "maybe time was wrong (time was wrong), maybe time was wrong (time heals nothing)
    we can all be alone, all alone, all alone
    we can all be alone but we will still have you" This makes me feel that even though the person still feels hurt over the relationship and they will never forget that pain But either religious beliefs or the substance of choice has helped them cope somehow, or at least fill that void.


    The last few lines I cant make heads or tails, but that is my big ole opinion about this amazing song.

    first post! yay. ^_^

    General CommentWhat i mean to say is they they formed to sing and spread the word of God and Jesus Christ
    so why would they talk about a stupid break up with a girl or something like that

    General CommentThis may be a simplistic way too look at it, but I think it has to do with someone watching someone they care about turn their back on god, or let their morals slide away from them.

    My InterpretationJust because they are a Christian band does not mean that they wouldn't write songs about break-us. Christian bands do entire albums about relationships (Relient K FANSD and Anberlin DITWLIAP). Christians go through break-ups, just the same as everyone else. It always still hurts. This song is about a relationship where a girl left, and he is realizing that sometimes we have to hit rock bottom to come back to God. And that even when it hurts, God is still there. The whole beginning is him trying to figure things out in his mind after deciding that no matter what, he still loves this person. But in the end God will let stuff happen to us that sucks, and we need to put our trust in him.
