"Harder Than Stone" as written by and Dallas Green....
Someday I will walk away
When time ain't drawing on me like a blade
Back turned to the setting sun
Leaving behind Toronto's incessant hum

‘Cause I was born and raised
To live beyond
The heft and weight
Of a world undone

[Chorus]
But I don’t mean to be a bother
I don’t need you to take my burden away
And I ain’t afraid of dying
Cold and alone

Traipsing though the utter dark
Walking underneath the dead moonlight
Without any great concern
For what I’ve missed or how many bridges have burned

Like a bird who flies
All the way from the north
My heart will roam
In search of warmth

[Chorus]
When my time comes

When I was young
I didn’t know too much
I thought that I could rule the world
Then I grew up
I found out life was hard
Harder than stone

    My InterpretationI think this is a song asking forgiveness and apologizing to the rest of Alexisonfire. The band did split not on the best of terms. Two of the verses of this song are taken from an Alexisonfire song "Cause I was born and raised To live beyond The heft and weight Of a world undone" and "Like a bird who flies All the way from the north My heart will roam In search of warmth" are from BORN AND RAISED from the Old Crows Young Cardinals album. Yes that song has to do with the society struggle between religion and reality and which path people choose or should choose, and I believe that using those two verses from that song to this shows that Dallas has chosen his path since the band break and how his new path was not how he imagined it years ago when Alexisonfire first started and how hard life can be when it changes, hence the song title.
