Try and walk a day in our shoes
With our souls worn and splitting
Our heels blistered and bleeding
From the miles and miles
of dragging around your dead weight

Take a look at what you're giving up
Is it enough to pull the pin
Before you reach the top
We won't stop until the wheels fall off
Until it's over

Hold on to the day
Before it gets too far away
I'm losing faith in all my past mistakes
We're living proof of a stubborn youth

And I'm waiting for the resurrection
Taking back our generation

The time has come
It's now or never
We wont make it through the night unless we stick together
So like it or not
We give all we got.
Forever

I fall asleep, I wake up and I repeat
But at least I'm still breathing
'Cause I know there's a reason
I'm torn apart right down the middle of my heart
but at least its still beating
'Cause I know there's a reason
I fall asleep, I wake up and I repeat
but at least I'm still breathing
'Cause I know there's a reason
I'm holding on
'Cause I know there's a reason

Waiting for the resurrection
Rising from the dead we've all been
Taking back our generation

    General CommentI think it's clear this is about their religious views. The chorus is about Jesus' second coming and how that would convince the younger generation: "I'm waiting for the resurrection taking back a generation." And these guys are the "living proof of a stubborn youth" because they aren't sure whether or not they want to believe in God or not: "I'm torn apart right down the middle of my heart but at least its still beating cause I know there's a reason." As if they want to believe but can't fully commit to it although at the end of the day they do believe and are waiting for the younger generation to as well.
