"The Great Divide" as written by and Benjamin Burnley....
Carry me all through the night
I am the last light fading
Leave all the lost souls behind
Show me the silence breaking
And when you're lost and out of time
I will be right here waiting
And when your dreams return to life
I'll be forever fading
And we'll fall behind

So I'll wait for you
As I keep your faith alive
And I'll pray for you
As we cross the great divide

Bury the wounds deep inside
Rupture the fault line breaking
Dream of the world left behind
Show us we're worth forsaking
And when the cold begins to rise
Darkness is overtaking
And when the fear is satisfied
I'll be forever changing
As we all realize

So I'll wait for you
As I keep your faith alive
And I'll pray for you
As we cross the great divide
And I'll break for you
As I open up the sky
And I'll stay for you
As we cross the great divide

Follow the sun light down
Cry clear and loud
Heaven won't help us now
But it's better this way
Warm light wash me away

So I'll wait for you
As I keep your faith alive
And I'll pray for you
As we cross the great divide
And I'll break for you
As I open up the sky
And I'll stay for you
As we cross the great divide

    General CommentThis song is a "in your face, this is how it's supposed to be" to "Hollow". This singer is basically promising to never leave the loved one - whether a friend, wife, brother, etc. basically sacrificing himself and staying behind to help a lost soul - beyond redemption. Pretty cool and rad but tragic in a way.

    General CommentHe loves someone enough to wait for them before crossing over to heaven. He'll keep their faith alive and pray for them. The person he's referring to believes in God but somehow fell off the track ("And I'll keep your faith alive") The person he's talking to no longer believes in the things they used to, probably because they've been lost in the dark or living a life of bad decisions. It doesn't make them a bad person, just that they're making bad choices.

    And I'll stay for you
    As we cross the great divide--->>>
    He'll stay left behind or in limbo until they can both cross over together.

    He's very devoted to his loved one. Beautiful song!
