"The Deserter" as written by Steven Matthew Holt, Brock Nicholas Lindow and Thomas Daniel Noonan....
Take deep breaths and gather the night
A hole that's hardly summed up by taking away
Time unlocks the stall
When there's nothing left to lose, nothing can be lost

I don't know if anything has changed
But the hope of that change changes everything
Hope builds change
Isn't the place of the plagues that surround me

And my open graves
But it's the fate of the haze that put darkness
In my way I escape
I escape darkness in my own way

Fatal has become the solid fight
Unending endings that loom into my darkest
Light unlocks my falls
When there's nothing left to lose, nothing can be lost

    General CommentFor me, this song is about being hopeful and being confident in yourself. It's about telling yourself that you can do whatever you want. You can "escape darkness," darkness being any negative factor in your life. If your stuck in a rut, you can get out of it, but you have to believe that you can. You can't just expect your life to change, you have to do something to change it.

    The line "Hope builds change" really stands out to me.

    I think the title could mean the person is deserting all of the negative things in their life.
