"Remember Everything" as written by Zoltan Bathroy, Ivan Moody, Thomas Jason Grinstead, Jeremy Spencer, Kevin Churko and Kane Churko....
Oh, dear mother, I love you
I'm sorry, I wasn't good enough
Dear father, forgive me
'Cause in your eyes, I just never added up
In my heart I know I failed you
But you left me here alone

If I could hold back the rain
Would you numb the pain
'Cause I remember everything
If I could help you forget
Would you take my regrets
'Cause I remember everything

Oh, dear brother, just don't hate me
For never standing by you or being by your side
Dear sister, please don't blame me
I only did what I thought was truly right
It's a long and lonely road
When you know you walk alone

If I could hold back the rain
Would you numb the pain
'Cause I remember everything
If I could help you forget
Would you take my regrets
'Cause I remember everything

I feel like running away
I'm still so far from home
You say that I'll never change
But what the fuck do you know
I'll burn it all to the ground before I let you run
Please forgive me, I can't forgive you now
I remember everything

If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain
'Cause I remember everything
If I could help you forget, would you take my regrets
'Cause I remember everything

It all went by so fast
I still can't change the past
I always will remember everything
If we could start again
Would that change the end
We remember everything
Everything

    My InterpretationAfter having watched the video for this sing, the meaning seems very clear to me. The video opens up with a baby being admired by his parents and drawing in a completely white room. He has a half dollar coin, likely minted the year of his birth, this is a symbol. He celebrates his birthday, plays with toys, he seems like a perfectly normal and happy child.

    Then we see his father begin drinking and yelling at him and he runs away, only to find his mother yelling at him. He gets a little bit older and the abuse continues, he now is drawing dark lines and using spray paint in the white room where the innocent child drew pictures. He sits on a rock and holds the coin in his hand

    As he grows older, we find him in his late or early twenties. He has a girlfriend now and they get married. He continues to paint in dark lines. For the first time now, we see him drinking. the next scene he is in an argument with his wife, lightly shoving her. When in shows him in the painting room he is distraught, sad and angry with his painting.

    Next we find the boy, now a man, walking away from him home in cammies. He in shipped off to combat, he receives letters from his wife as one would expect. While there, we see him shoot a man dead with his rifle, and he instantly has a terrified look as if to say "What have I done?". There is more painting in the room, but this time it is dark thick marks made with a paintbrush, he is no longer painting anything specific, just dark marks. He looks over his dead friends.

    He returns home from war and we see he and his wife having a BBQ with some friends, he seems zoned out. He continues to drink. in the next scene there is a woman walking away with suitcases, presumably his wife. He now is taking a hammer to all his childhood mementos, wedding mementos and alcohol. He is screaming and the video flashes between him screaming and his dad screaming. He is now just throwing black paint on the walls of the white room

    Now we find him laying in a hospital bed, hood up to IV and EKG. He flat lines and we see the coin fall out of his hand. End of video.

    Judging by this it seems that a boy is born, he is abused by his parents. Because of this, he grows up like his father did. Once he realizes he has grown up to be what he hated, he tries to fix it but it is too late. He dies lonely.

    The coin is a symbol for his troubles. He was given the coin as a boy and was abused as a boy. He hung on to both of these things until he died, he dropped the coin symbolically letting go of his problems, it took death to free him.

    Please feel free to correct me if you interpret differently.

    General CommentWow, I was really not expecting this song. I think it's one of the best on American Capitalist. It's definitely got that power-ballad feel while still keeping that nice heavy guitar in the back, just hardly noticeable.

    General CommentYou guys should check out the video for this song on youtube. Some of FFDP's videos are clearly linked to the song and this is one of them... I think it explains it quite well.

    General CommentTalking with other people, this song seems more like a suicide note. At times, apologzing to his family for not being what they wanted. Later, kind of talking about wishing he had never been born!

    Song MeaningThis song is telling his family that he is sorry for everything that happened, but he also can't forgive them for what they did to him. He wishes that things didn't happen the way they did, and asks if they could start over, would anything change? He is vividly telling the listener that abuse is real, and instead of ignoring it, one should talk about it and try to bring peace to all who were involved. It's a very powerful song, and can not go unnoticed.

    General CommentIt sounds like a suicide note that was the first thought that came to mind when I heard the song, I came across it by chance I would have never listened to the band if it were not for a survey....(that is all I can say about the survey) but I really like the song

    General CommentI just saw them last night and they played it acoustically, and Ivan was crying when he was singing it. Very moving to watch
