"Strength of the Mind" as written by and Adam Dutkiewicz Jesse Leach....
Yeah
Strength of the mind

Looking back on the life that I lived
What I leave behind
Mistakes and memories serve to remind (they serve me to remind)
The reflection staring back from the mirror
No longer looks like me, like me

Strength of the mind to fight what’s inside
It takes strength of the mind
Before I lose control

Who can raise you from the fall and save you? Only you
Who can take the pain away and change you? Only you

A thousand miles between this never ending feeling
Just looking for something more
Searching for a release
I’ve seen rock bottom and I’ve smashed my fists against it
Just keep telling yourself it will be alright

Who can raise you from the fall and save you? Only you
Who can take the pain away and change you? Only you

Gather all your pain and suffering
Turn them into strength and weaponry
To overcome the enemy
That’s in you, that’s in you, that’s in you, that’s in you
Come face to face with a war that rages in you

Yeah

Who can take the pain away? Only you (only you, only you)
Who can raise you from the fall and save you, and save you, and save you
Only you


Strength of the mind
Before I lose control

    General CommentJesse himself said of this song "'I’ve seen rock bottom and I’ve smashed my fist against it' references the dark times, but in a positive way. People have different definitions of what rock bottom is, but this song is about being that desperate that you’re punching inanimate objects because you’re so angry. But it’s totally a motivational song, and again it has two meanings – it’s not just a self-help song."

    I think looking at it, it isn't hard to see what the song is about. It's about embracing the the difficulties you face in life as character building and finding strength in the face of adversity. You can't rely on other people to fix you, when you are at rock bottom only you can get yourself out of it. Your own mind is your enemy, but you can defeat it.
