Something rolling underneath my skin
I could not define it or invite it in
Though
To let it in would be to liberate
To keep it in darkness is to propagate
Why

It's all about
Believing through something that you always doubt

When you have faith
You will be willing to wait
When you have faith
Through all that logic and haste
It's never too late
So try to create
'Cause the last thing that breaks, the last thing that breaks,
the last thing that breaks
Is your faith

Something shouting from behind my eyes
I'm looking too closely to recognize
To gain perspective think it would be wise
Would you please listen while it testifies
Now

It's all about
Believing through something that you always doubt

When you have faith
You will be willing to wait
When you have faith
Through all that logic and haste
It's never too late
So try to create
'Cause the last thing that breaks, the last thing that breaks,
the last thing that breaks
Is your faith

And I surrender to this storm
And taste the raindrops sweet and wet and warm
And may I never loose this faith I've found
It keeps me anchored down to solid ground
So let lightening flash and wind swirl around

When you have faith
You will be willing to wait
When you have faith
Through all that logic and haste
It's never too late
So try to create
'Cause the last thing that breaks, the last thing that breaks,
the last thing that breaks
Is your faith

You have faith
(You have faith)
(You have faith)
(You have faith)

You have faith
(You have faith)
(You have faith)
(You have faith)

You have faith
(You have faith)

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
