"Anthem of the Lonely" as written by and Juan Cruz Joseph Ryan Demaio....
A heart made of stone callous and bone
Fracture and tear it out to let it go
And to think I called it my own
And I would have never though the pain could grow

So I'll break it knowing what you said
The pain is what you make it sadly you are so mistaken
I will take you with a grain and step into the changes
Throw away the empty heart

Right now
Never want to leave this place
And right now see it in a different way
So right now even if you take me on

I'll stand, the lonely
Stand, the lonely

It's harder to know just where to go
If only the stars aligned the sunsets glowed
I don't need a calm in a storm
Or something to scream about with empty lungs

So I'll break it knowing what you said
The pain is what you make it sadly you are so mistaken
I will take you with a grain and step into the changes
Throw away the empty heart

Right now
Never want to leave this place
And right now see it in a different way
So right now even if you take me on

I'll stand, the lonely
Stand, the lonely

Right now
Never want to leave this place
And right now see it in a different way
So right now even of you take me on

I'll stand, the lonely
Stand, the lonely

Right now
Never want to leave this place
And right now see it in a different way
So right now even if you take me on

I'll stand, the lonely
Stand, the lonely

    My InterpretationBecause sometimes recognizing your lonliness is not enough. Live it for a while and understand it for what it is. The "anthem" of one's loneliness is the self-absorbtion in the depression in creates.
    It is "Right now" and one "Never want to leave this place" while "... right now see(ing) it in a different way" ... but if you approach this person to "help them" ... "So right now even if you take me on" .... they will cower back in the depression. "I'll stand, the lonely. Stand, the lonely".
    The irony is that the anthem is also a banner you carry by knowing that you can only feel lonely if you first understood what it was to be loved. So tear out the "stone callous and bone" heart that is possessing you and know it for what it ..... WAS.

    My OpinionIn my opinion they are singing about Matthew 17:4 Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah."

    "...Right now
    Never want to leave this place..."

    General CommentI have a really strong feeling Nine lashes will become one of the legends of rock. I just think they have something great, that isnt in other bands that belong to the same league and/or timeline. They remind me of three days grace. This is just my opinion.
