"Temple from the Within" as written by and Mike D'antonio Adam Dutkiewitz....
Make me feel serenity when all is revealed
So easy to look back in life and question
But I must seek to find the strength
To push forward
I want to see what's so beautiful inside
As we drink of life eternal
Absolve me through your suffering
Teach me to inscribe
These words on my heart
Cover me with the shadow of your hand
I will not loose myself in everything that tears me down
Because you stand by me
No one to blame for my transgressions
No one to blame but myself

    General CommentJesse Leach in interview:
    "Temple From the Within" is my ode to spirituality and the way I feel towards life. Times when I feel I can't keep pushing . I find a way and I know it's not me. It's another force so that's me paying my respects."

    General CommentI love this band, cause the lyrics are so possitve, most bands are really dark and negative (not that this is a particularly bad thing, its just nice to see a change) but they still sound so heavy. Best band ever. I love Howard, I think he fits in perfectly.

    you teach me
    to inscribe these words
    upon my heart
    you cover me
    with the shadow
    of your hand

    Everything that tears us down

    I will not lose myself
    I in everything that tears us down
    because you stand by me
    There's no one to blame
    No one to blame for my transgressions

    you teach me to inscribe these words
    upon my heart
    you cover me with the shadow
    of your hand

    I will not lose myself
    I in everything that tears me down
    Because you stand
    stand by me

    Want to see what's so beautiful inside
    as we drink of life
    absolve me through your suffering

    I will not lose myself
    I in everything that tears me down
    Because you stand
    stand by me

    There's no one to blame
    No one to blame

    these are the correct lyrics to this song

    this song rocks, its about jessie's relationship with Jesus Christ, and it's all about knowing that there is something out there.

    General CommentDefinitely one of the best KsE songs ever. I like Jesse's vocals better than Howard's, but there's no way they could have found a better replacement than Howard. I mean, he was on tour with the band A WEEK after he and his drummer joined the band! Plus he can screech like the best of them ("the best of them" being Jesse). But I still like Jesse's voice better.

    General CommentYes, Finalpoet, you're correct. This song is completely about Jesse's dedification to God, Jesus Christ.

    The singer and drummer both came from the same band (Blood has been Shed), but they joined at separate times. The first time I saw Killswitch Engage, they had Howard, but still had Tom Gomes playing drums for them (the In Flames/Killswitch Engage/Sentenced/Dark Tranquillity tour in 2002).
