"Between the Mountains and the Sea" as written by and James Anthony Buddy Nielsen Daniel Gerard Trapp....
And do you ever ask yourself
If the person that you are
Is the person you were meant to be
Or are you too afraid to go that far

Courage is to walk
Through the valley of our thoughts
And in the desert that you fear
Sit down with open ears

Because we were made to wander
Between the mountain and the sea
This body is a vessel
To have eternally

So what are you gonna do
When everything you love is taken right away from you?
And what are you gonna do
If the person that you thought you were is not the person you knew?

So what are you gonna do
When everything you love is taken right away from you?
And what are you gonna do
When the person that you thought you were is not the person you knew?

You got nothing to lose
You got nothing

Do not wait 'til angels sing
Do not wait 'til angels sing
And don't fear the unknown road
[?]

There is a devil in the cold dark streets
It leaves us starving and suffering
And there's a weakness that we cannot see
For we all feel it, and it is deep

And there is nothing that will set us free
It's the silence and inner beast
There is a passion that we all must seek
But we are silent, and we are weak

There is a devil in the cold dark streets

You got nothing to lose
You got nothing

Do not wait 'til angels sing
Do not wait 'til angels sing
And don't fear the unknown road
[?]

You got nothing to lose
You got nothing

Do not wait 'til angels sing
Do not wait 'til angels sing
And don't fear the unknown road
[?]

    My InterpretationFirst off: Fantastic song.

    I think this song is about someone who has what I like to call "your own worst enemy syndrome." Basically, they're seeing all their flaws and really alarmed and disturbed by them. So now they're at the point where they have to decide whether or not to persevere and try to fix themselves.

    The lines

    "You’ve got nothing lose
    do not wait till angels sing
    don’t fear the unknown road
    what is diamond was once coal"

    ... are about the individual in question feeling a sense of optimism because they "got nothing to lost" and the line "do not wait till angels" says basically just go out there and do it. Fuck the risks and just give it your damnedest.

    General CommentBuddy's is going very personal and this was one of first attempts before the new album and the coming out. Listening to this song knowing about his pain makes it more emotional and it really gives me goosebumbs.
