"Ender" as written by Alejandro M. Linares, Randy Strohmeyer, Alexander Pappas, Nathan Barcalow and Derek Doherty....
Here I am beside myself again
I'm torn apart by words that you have said
All in all, I know we're falling apart
Where did you run to so far away?

Here we are to sing you a song
There you are asleep against the window pane
Just like always

You said you like to hear the rain sometimes
All I can do is tell you the truth
And oh, my eyes will tell you the same

Here we are to sing you a song
There you are asleep again

Grasp our hands together, we feel we are one result

    General Comment...this song is excellent
    few have done interpretations on this song..everyone loves it and feels it relates..but relate to what..
    in my opinion it means a lot of thing..but obsessed with the song i heard it a lot...the ending 'noises' to me described the previous lyrics but in a different form..listen to those noises carefully..you will soon discover how significant it is to the whole feeling the song gives. the noise is a bunch of up's and down's, it works with your emotions, crescendo's and decrescendo's create a sick effect. i thought that the song was about someone that he truly loved had fallen into in a coma. or some kind of permanent state .immobilized.
    before the sick person came to be that way the relationship was headed downhill..now that this problem has come over he has returned to say his last words before the end. i feel that he loved her more thatn she loved him. she's asleep again the way she's always been to him..more or less unresponsive. the truth is: he can't help her. and hearing the rain and stuff is just reminiscent of old memories trying to overcome the amnesia and remind this person about the past. now that it's over he can finally tell her that together they are whole and she will be with him forever(spiritually) then the noises come in..it sounds like it's in someone who is in a state of shock or coma's head. it sounds like what they would hypothetically hear. the noises sound like a disease. the begining of the noise to me sounds like the persons life...it's still the song but soon turns the the diseaseor accident, it where the sound changes to an eerier sound,those loud noises that sound like something is approching are people moving around in the room, listenening on.. you hear voices..as if she heard the last few words,then the sharp scream like noises are pain, the last singing part are when the persons dies; sorta like the funeral service.the clock-like sound is time running out, and lastly the marching/clock sound is the burial/ending of a life and begging or continuation of another...now that i write all of this out and read other views i dont feel my view is correct...but it's only an opinion.(s0rry its sooo long)

    General CommentI'm going to attempt at the MEANING of this song..since no one before me..has even touched on this subject...
    I think its about a relationship pretty much gone to hell...He really loves her, but he knows its won't work out...He is always there for her...but she doesn't even care..."Here we are to sing you a song, and there you are asleep again"...

    General Comment"Grasp our hands together, we feel we are one result"

    The name of the song is "Ender", which comes from the title character of Ender's Game and Speaker For The Dead by Orson Scott Card. This song is about love for our fellow human beings. Ender is a very empathetic guy and he explains that to defeat enemies one must understand them as they understand themselves. By understanding them as they understand themselves, however, you will come to love them as they love themselves. Therefore, defeating these enemies hurts because you are causing harm to those that you love: these very same enemies. So, Ender regrets all the enemies he has defeated and wishes to never have to do so again. Instead he seeks to understand and love everyone, and he does his best to inspire others to do the same.

    General CommentWhat DOESN'T this song mean to me? j/k. But seriously folks, this is a great song. Full of great beats and vocals, whenever i hear it i spooge my pants. Ok not quite, but it's a wonderfully written song that's very new and different from their normal sound. Mellow, yet powerful. I like it.
