"Artificial Light" as written by and Ryan Curtis Clark Patrick John Judge....
Go!
Tell me your misery
Give us the antidote
I heard the voice of change
Behind a vacant note

All this tearing apart
Without a reform
Call it what you will
I'm not afraid to say

I've heard it all, connection lost
We're standing by, artificial light
You sell a fix for our defect
And all we find, artificial light

Doesn't break the model
I can't feel it in my bones
Nothing shattering my world (No!)

We want a real cure
Not idle sympathy
The dark consuming light
That you have failed to be

No, it's not enough
I resent this deprivation
Your remedy is not a weapon
To slaughter the sorrow
It's just to keep you from feeling alone

I've heard it all, connection lost
We're standing by, artificial light
You sell a fix for our defect
And all we find, artificial light

Doesn't break the model
I can't feel it in my bones
Nothing shattering my world (No!)

Doesn't break the model
I can't feel it in my bones
Nothing shattering my world (No!)

I'll never see what they see in you

Doesn't break the model
I can't feel it in my bones
Nothing shattering my world (No!)

Doesn't break the model
I can't feel it in my bones
Nothing shattering my world (No!)

    General CommentIt seems as though its talking about how we find comfort and pleasure in the things of this world instead of in Jesus as we should

    How we hear the voice of change behind a vacant note. That voice being God or the holy spirit calling to us but how we instead flock to that empty note or the comforts of this world

    "You sell a fix for our defect,
    And all you find, artificial light"

    Again just saying how its temporary and fake like an artificial light

    It all points to the general idea that we lose our connection to God and seek temporary comfort in thw things of this world instead.
    But i could always be wrong lol :)

    Song MeaningBehind the Song:
    "I've never understood a fan's soul-completing devotion to songs with a depiction of bleak circumstance, but vacant of any glimmer of solution. Don't get me wrong, I'm actually drawn to music that is dark and somber by it's very nature - obviously. I get it. But when I hear stories of how a band that sings about nothing but depression and desolation 'saved my life,' I wonder how. I know being able to relate to the struggle of others, and understanding that you're not alone in doing so, can be comforting... but is it enough? It's like the path getting clearer, easier... then finding it's a dead end." - Ryan Clark
