"The Forgotten One" as written by and Adam/leach Dutkiewicz....
Words only lead me to the cracks in my disguise.
My flesh a prison for the man behind these eyes.
I sing the epitaph for an unnamed king.
Carved in this tombstone all the lost pieces of me.
How far is the distance between you and I?
How long before this silence dies?

Lost in a sea of sadness.
Blind in this place of darkness.
If I fall would you be there to raise me up?
Or will I be the forgotten one?

Lead me to the crossroad I can find my way home.
Devils on my back and angels in between.
The scars and dreams that made me believe.
Wheres the crime scene in remembrance to me.
When our eyes meet do you know the man beneath.
Walk the line between desperate and redeemed.

Lost in a sea of sadness
Blind in this place of darkness
If I fall would you be there to raise me up?
Or will I be the forgotten one?

And my hands are songs for the broken
(through every word that was spoken)
(do I carry half the whole plate)

Lost in a sea of sadness
Blind in this place of darkness
If I fall would you be there to raise me up?
Or will I be the forgotten one?

    General CommentThis song is chilling. The emotion is so raw.

    "When our eyes meet do you know the man beneath?"

    My favorite line.

    My InterpretationFrom what I perceived after listening for a few hours, I think its about whether or not this man will be accepted into heaven. "If I fall, would you be there to raise me up? Or will I be the forgotten one?".

    Words only lead me to the cracks in my disguise.
    My flesh a prison for the man behind these eyes.
    I sing the epitaph for an unnamed king.
    Carved in this tombstone all the lost pieces of me.

    ^Never really understood entirely the first verse. Are they the words of god he is talking about? The epitaph for an unamed king, I assume jesus's epitaph? " And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, 'Jesus Of Nazareth The King Of The Jews.' This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, 'Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.' Pilate answered. 'What I have written I have written.' That is the epitaph of jesus christ. He might have written unnamed king as a censor for respect.
    How far is the distance between you and I? I suspect the words are coming from the man that is now dead and possibly in hell, awaiting to be rescued and sent to heaven, hence the chorus.

    The chorus sounds like the man is in hell, a sea of sadness, a place of darkness. And when hes there will he be redeemed or will he be forgotten?

    Devils on my back and angels in between. Heaven (up) hell (down/to the rear)
    The scars and dreams that made me believe. The endeavors of life that solidified his belief of god and his words. Wheres the crime scene in remembrance to me? (not too sure exactly what hes talking about)

    When our eyes meet do you know the man beneath? Walk the line between desperate and redeemed. When he meets god, will he know the kind of person that he was, would he be considered a good person although he has sinned? The line between desperate and redeemed makes me think of life now, where we are. The midpoint between heaven and hell, life being our chance of redemption.

    My hymns are songs for the broken. That whole verse is in kind of gods perspective. His hymns are songs for the broken, but through every word that was spoken, does he carry hope for the hopeless? Does he carry hope for the ones that he hadn't accepted into heaven? The ones who seem forsaken in hell.

    Im not very good at explaining though, sorry if it seems jumbled.
