[Verse 1]
We steal the molecules from the dead
We liberate inanimate objects
Is this a path of will up ahead?
Or are we just destined to get what we get?

[Pre-Chorus]
Drawn to your face like never before
Even the mistakes aren't really mistakes at all

[Chorus]
I wanna confess that you own me
And we don't rest if we're lonely
There's innocence in the moment
Maybe now's the time to be alive

[Verse 2]
We steal the molecules from the dead
We liberate inanimate objects
Is this a sign of will in a head?
Or are we predestined to get what we get?

[Pre-Chorus]
Drawn to your face like never before
Even the mistakes aren't really mistakes at all

[Chorus]
I wanna confess that you own me
And we don't rest if we're lonely
There's innocence in the moment
Maybe now's the time to be alive

[Bridge]
We've been dressed as humans
We've been kings and homeless
Still, we're just fragments of a great collide

[Chorus]
I wanna confess that you own me
And we don't rest if we're lonely
There's innocence in the moment
Maybe now's the time to be alive
There's innocence in the moment
Maybe now's the time to be alive
Maybe now's the time to be alive

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about the singer's philosophical struggle. He's trying to figure out if we have free will or are bound by predestination; if we are created by God or are simply products of chance. It's kind of a cool thought that we are made up of molecules that we got by eating dead things, or that we are living things made up of inanimate objects. Does this mean that we are simply the sum of our building blocks: inanimate objects set on a predestined course with the illusion of free will like billiard balls, or is this actually an amazing feature of life that it is more than a sum of its parts and that we are beings with free will made up of a collection of inanimate objects? Cool to think about. I think the "you" he's singing to is God. "Not resting" is in regards to the constant search for God due to our innate longing.
