"Everchanging" as written by and Principe/mcilrath/barnes/wleklinski....
In the face of change
Is when she turned to me and said
"I'm not sure anymore??

And there amidst the waves
And the cloudless skies
That blanket the year before
I watch my life wash ashore

Have you ever been a part of something
That you thought would never end?
And then of course it did

Have you ever felt the weight inside you
Pulling away inside your skin?
And then something had to give

Now the lines are drawn
Is this feeling gone?
The best parts of this have come and gone
And now that is all this is

With the reasons clear
We'll spend another year
Without direction, full of fear
But now things will be different

There's nothing simple when it comes to you and I
Always something in this everchanging life
And it probably always will
Now that time is getting harder to come by
The same arguments are always on our mind
We've killed this slowly fading light

Now something has kept me here too long and you can't leave me if I'm already gone

Make the same mistakes we're always hanging on
Break the promises we're always leaning on
All this time spent waking up
Mow I keep this line open to get this call from you as you speak the words
That keep me coming back to you now this time it's all different

Now something has kept me here too long and now I'm gone...

    General Commentto me the song is about a couple, but the girl doesnt know anymore, since they are going in different directions[or feelings] and so they break up with promises to each other, but the guy realizes the girl is just leading him on so he leaves before she can.

    General CommentI just want to thank layinginthegrass for being the 1st person to actually state what this song means. I also think that her interpretation was right on. A couple is together for a while and all of a sudden the girl is not sure anymore and wants to break up. The guy gets the signal and leaves before she can break his heart. it seems to me from the line "now i keep this line open to get this call from you as you speak the words
    that keep me coming back to you" that the girl has broken up with the guy before and the guy took her back. But not this time, the guy wants it to be over for good because as much as it may hurt him, he knows now that this girl isnt the one for him afterall. That is a painful realization that i have just come too myself after being with a girl for 3.5yrs. She broke up with me for the 2nd time and instead of taking her back i said no. Extremely hard and painful thing to do. Rise Against explains this situation beautifully. The Unraveling is still my fav of thier albums.

    General Commenteverchanging by rise against is with out question the best punk song of our time, and rise against is with out question the best punk band of our time. This was the second song i ever heard by them (the first was reception fades) and since their first album came out a few years ago they have continued to produce amazing albums. even now that they are getting popular they still continue to create great songs.
