"Still Remains" as written by Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti....
I cast a line when I saw you were drowning
Still you turn your back on me
Pulled you from the fire when you were burning
Still you never could believe

So carry on if you must go your way
Go embrace my heart
Your free will still remains

I save you from your fall when you were slipping
Still you broke from me to run
So how can you justify the life you're living

You must carry on if you must go your way
Go embrace my heart
Your free will still remains

You'll deny
You'll deny me once again
But I've seen it all
I know you've come to crawl
Back to me before the end

Carry on if you must go your way
Go embrace my heart
Your free will still remains

So carry on if you must go your way
Go embrace my heart
Your free will still remains
Still remains

    General CommentThis appears to depict an authority figure talking to a dependent. You might picture it as a deity talking to a rebellious follower or a parent talking to a rebellious child depending on your motivations, but it seems both interpretations are probably valid.

    Gotta love how some songs are set up in a way to make the religious and non-religious views appear valid and let the masses argue amongst themselves, all the while raking in the combined profits. :)

    General Comment"Go embrace my heart" should be "Though it breaks my heart".

    Definitely a song about always being there to save someone who can't seem to resist getting themselves into trouble... I've been there with friends, watching some of them head down a path, trying to save them from it, but they seem to push me away and suffer anyway.

    My InterpretationI think this is from the point of view of God.
    Myles Kennedy has stated that ABIII is a loose concept-album about a character who has come to realize that everything he thought was absolute truth might not be. I think that's a reference to Kennedy's religious upbringing. In this song, I believe he is writing from the point of view of God, and what God has to say about this character's sudden lack of faith.

    I'm not religious, by the way. And to be honest, up until I really sat down and thought about it in the context of the album's concept, I always equated this song to being about a relationship with someone who you have the best intentions for, but they turn and walk away from you regardless.
