"In Due Time" as written by Jesse D. Leach, Adam Dutkiewicz, Mike D'antonio, Joel Stroetzel and Justin Foley....
Pacing aimlessly,
With my mind in unrest
Unsure of what may come.
What have I done to bring this down on me?
Helpless to make this undone

All in due time, see the world through different eyes.
All in due time, the shadows will give way to light.

How much more can I give of myself,
As these walls close in on me?
As I slip down in to this despair
(Into this despair),
There is nothing to attain

What victory
(What victory)
When my soul is weak,
(Is weak)
where does my help come from?

All in due time, see the world through different eyes.
I see the world through different eyes.
All in due time, shadows will give way, give way to light.

All that we suffer through leads to determination.
The trials we all go through gives us the strength to carry on.
Something within us burns, desire feeds the will to live.
A reason to believe I will see redemption.

All in due time, see the world through different eyes
I see the world through different eyes
All in due time, the shadows will give way to light.
All in due time.

    My InterpretationThis seems to be another limp-wristed, irrational song saying "Sure, things are hard now, but God is surely looking out for me, and I'll be OK in the end, even if it's when I die." with the implied corrolary, "Because you know, lots of people I know will be burning in hell, but I'm saved."

    Lines that lead me to believe this are:

    When my soul is weak, where does my help come from?


    A reason to believe I will see redemption.

    Not too many people talk about "souls" and "redemption" without referring--even if obliquely--to spiritual nonsense.

    General CommentThe album KSE II was in my opinion only 'ok'. There were some decent songs but as a whole it just didnt stand out like the ones before. However the new album is amazing and in particular this song. I loved Howard as a singer but i think bringing Jesse back was needed and brought a new freshness to the band.

    First heard this song when the video was released and immediately thought "sounding good", but when the chorus hit i swear i got chills. That line 'All In Due Time' and the way Jesse sings it is pure passion and clearly shows that he means what he's singing.

    As for meaning.. i think in general its a message of 'theres a light at the end of the tunnel'. I've been able to relate to this in recent months and its all about enduring the bad by knowing that 'in time' the good will come.

    Amazing song, amazing album

    General CommentSeems like Jesse chose to speak of his constant battle with depression ("my soul is weak").
    some lines describe being hopeless and with inner struggle, however you can tell as others have said that he chose to speak as optimist.
    He write that it's difficult to cop with life, there's "trails" and "walls" that closing on you.

    But bottom line, and that is somthing that you can feel throughout the album (for exmaple: strength of the mind),
    His massage is look for inner strength.

    Take this powerful bridge,
    "suffer - leads to determination
    Trials- givs us stregnth
    Desire feeds the will to live"

    The chorus - "see the world through different eyes"
    what i see here is the will to find inner strength to stand against depression so that "shadows will give way to life"
    And since he recognize that it's a constant struggle - "in due time" meaning when you will find strength to stand against your demons you will "see the world through different eyes".

    My InterpretationI think he's very introspective, has realized his mistakes, struggled through pain, battled his spirituality, and is now coming to grips with himself through determination brought on by a higher power guiding him. One of the most positive lyrics in ages, without being "preachy". Truly a great band, the song rips with emotion. The video is superb and spot on by one of the most talented bunch of musicians who take the music and sentiment behind it seriously, but don't take themselves seriously. The new album is textbook for brilliant rock for the new millennium.
