"Modern Age" as written by and Christian Mcalhaney Aaron Sprinkle....
Why so afraid to fall?
That was then and this is now.
Horizons look different in a modern age.
Are we all lost? Are we all lost again?

Fall asleep alone.
Safe but then the off chance.
Of getting your heart attack one more time.
Will you ever come, will you ever come to life again?

Don't we all want to belong?
Don't we all write our own song?
Let our silence break tonight.
Don't we all learn right from wrong?
And don't we all want to be loved?
Let our silence break tonight.

Come now elusive sign.
Open up their eyes to see.
So many of us are just the same as you.
Have we all hid, have we all hid ourselves from friends?

So much else to give.
This is her and that is him.
Close your eyes and imagine him holding you.
Will you ever find, will you ever find the words again?

Don't we all want to belong?
Don't we all write our own song? (Sing it, Sing it)
Let our silence break tonight.
Don't we all learn right from wrong?
And don't we all want to be loved? (Sing it, Sing it)
Let our silence break tonight.
Let our silence break tonight.

There is so much left we have to lose here.
The more we give away.
You just will never keep the promise said.
If all we hold is yesterday.

Sing it. Sing it.
Let our silence break tonight.

Don't we all want to belong?
Don't we all write our own song? (Sing it, Sing it)
Let our silence break tonight.
Don't we all learn right from wrong?
And don't we all want to be loved? (Sing it, Sing it)
Let our silence break tonight.
(Sing it)
Let our silence break tonight.
(Sing it)
Let our silence break tonight.

    General Commenti was skeptical about this album after their last 2 efforts, however, THIS song is the best they have put out since dismantle/repair off the cities album. it has everything I love in an anberlin song: somewhat dark tone, catchy synth, deep lyrics (especially 2nd half of the first verse), memorable chorus. it also has a similar song structure to paperthin hymn (the song that got me into the band) including that short section leading into the final chorus where the instrumentals cut out and stephen's voice takes center stage. 15/10!!!!!

    Song Meaning"We can’t expect to be caught if we never fall.

    This song is written for a dear friend who is too afraid to fall in love, they are so lonely but refuse to give their heart a chance. For all those who have been hurt just know that we all have, it doesn’t mean that you should lock yourself away in hopes of never getting hurt. You will be loved." - Stephen Christian anberlinlyrics.tumblr.com June 2014
