"New Horizons" as written by Sameer Bhattacharya, James Culpepper, Jared Hartmann, Kirkpatrick Seals and Lacey Nicole Sturm....
So you're tired but you're alive
So open up your eyes
And you can get some sleep when you are dead
Kill the clock inside your head
Bring your normalcy to the edge
And watch it drown in new horizons
New horizons

You said I'd only have to wait until I died
And that's no time
How did we come to think that this was funny
Cheering and laughing at the dying
While we've been riding the light in you

Wait
You said I'd only have to wait until I die
(New horizons)
There is no such thing as time
Inside this moment no sun rising
Wait until I fly
(New horizons)
Wait until I fly
(New horizons)

Sin with a conquest
Life floods in with a new quest
Here's a voice for the voiceless
And a song for the soulless
Life floods in

Wait
You said I'd only have to wait until I die
(New horizons)
There is no such thing as time
Inside this moment no sun rising
Wait until I fly
(New horizons)
Wait until I fly
(New horizons)

When the times keep going wrong and we go right
When the times keep going wrong and we go right

Wait
You said I'd only have to wait until I die
(New horizons)
There is no such thing as time
Inside this moment no sun rising
Wait until I fly
(New horizons)
Wait until I fly
(New horizons)

Wait until I fly
(New horizons)
There is no such thing as time
Inside this moment no sun rising
Wait until I fly

When the times keep going wrong and we go right
We go right

    General Commenti love this song i think that they took this 2 years to think about the past and all the "victories" they had in the past and now they're aiming to the "New Horizons" Gods has for them! I love Flyleaf!!!

    My InterpretationThis is my new favorite song from Lacey, because it took me awhile to actually get the newest album before realizing they have a new lead singer, but who cares? She sounds good and can keep Flyleaf going, which is what we all need...

    Anyways, since I'm So Sick, this song truly reflects her story of the day before she found Jesus she was gonna attempt suicide...
    I mean, even the opening reminds me way too much of Matthew 26:40...
    --- So you're tired but you're alive
    So open up your eyes
    And you can get some sleep when you are dead
    Kill the clock inside your head ---

    It's a song I think definitely about the future, but more just... living in the moment... not being afraid of death, and optimistically not even worrying about the transition from now until heaven...
    --- Wait
    You said I'd only have to wait until I die
    (New horizons)
    There is no such thing as time
    Inside this moment no sun rising
    Wait until I fly ---

    And of course, if you notice, the music video showcases memories, but also what appears to be Lacey's husband and baby... illustrating she's enjoying and making the most of life, but not storing her treasures on earth
