"Provision" as written by and Dustin Davidson Brent Rambler....
You give us dreams to wake us up
You say, take pride in the provision
When all we see is the face of defeat you say
Take pride in the provision
My future’s finally found me, figured me out
It’s painful, it's tough, I never saw it coming
Come as it may, because all of this life is a lesson
I’d rather learn than end up in a cold covered up dark grave

These are the words of a man who finally let go
These are the goals of a man who’s laid it all down,
Losing it all made me realize

I am the victim, the culprit, the casualty, and the 'cause
Losing it all led me to you, to you
Losing it all led me to you, I’m sick
I need sight, I need help, I need you, and I’m not getting any better

I am the deceiver, I’m not getting any better
I’m the thief, the whore, the murderer
It’s times like these, It’s times like these
you forget to remember who you are
The way up is down, truth is found when life throws you out
And kicks you to the curb
I’m just as much the problem as the man behind bars
He did with his business what I do in my heart
You wronged me, you crossed me, I’ll never let it ruin me
Lessons are learned deep down within my heart, in my heart
The worst men make the best stories come true
The past is a part of me
But not who I am

I realize my identity is not in
What I've seen but in what I believe to be true
I know what I need now
All that was lost is not lost
Even the worst of mankind can’t disrupt sovereignty

You've given me this nightmare to wake me up
You say, Take pride in the provision
You’ve given me more than enough
You say, take pride in the provision

    Song MeaningI think this song is about a man who always become a bad person. then He (Maybe God) make him realize about what he did and give that person a lesson so that person can change (I'm just trying to comment this song, this is the first time for me)

    Song MeaningI think it is about a person who has made mistakes, done things they regret (know they were wrong), etc. but now realise the error of their ways and looking to improve their life now.

    That is you can fall but pick yourself back up (be a better person ... only you are stopping that person from being found).

    My InterpretationAt a drum clinic, Matt Greiner said this was written after a very difficult time over a financial scandal of some sort involving a once trusted friend.

    I think this is his interpretation of the reason why all those bad things happen to good people who obviously don't deserve it. And when you read the lyrics, he perhaps envisions that maybe there are no "good people" or "bad people", just people who make mistakes and have to cope with them the best way they can. His way is God, and all the bad things he's been through made him realize how rich his life is, and how sometimes you have to "lose it all" to realize God's already given everything you truly need to be happy.
