"Song 10" as written by Evan White and Timothy P. Lambesis....
One night opens wounds and words utter pain
The truth cannot breathe a one in your soul
You've hid hearts and songs as long as you recall
His kind words just fall near your feet
With their last air, all they want done is to be heard in your sweet ears just once

    General CommentYou all say you are big As I Lay Dying fans and you also say that every song they write is about god or jesus (no capitalization on purpose). You all say they are a Christian band but they really aren't. If you were actual fans then you would have gone to their website and looked at the FAQ section. Seriously, you are poseurs. I'm not calling myself a big fan, but at least I take the time to get information so that I won't be ignorant. Go here and read the first FAQ: asilaydying.com/…
    Tim says that the songs are about "life, struggles, mistakes, relationships and other issues that don't fit entirely in the spiritual category." The only Christian thing about the band is how he writes about these things: through his perspective as a Christian. That's all.

    As for this song, it could be about god and what all of you are saying. But really? God's complaining that people aren't listening to him? What is he, five? It's just about someone who has a lot of feelings for someone else but that person doesn't pay him any attention; "...words just fall near your feet...be heard in your sweet ears just once" He just wants her to know he exists, basically.

    As you can tell, I'm not religious but that doesn't matter. You can believe what you want to. It's good to believe in something. What matters is all you Christians pushing your faith on everyone and saying all of this is about god. Take the time to educate yourselves and stop being ignorant.

    General Comment"Why the big deal about Christian bands???? Just because they are christion doesn't mean they are incapable of writting songs about anything else." Thank you. thank you. This needs to be a notice shown at the top of every christian band's page.

    On a different note, I would have loved if this song was like number 9 on the CD.

    General CommentChristan or not this is a song about his feelings, feeling like your in a one sided relationship no matter who its with. Easily one of my favorite AILD songs.

    General CommentNO COMMENTS?! This song is easily one of their best ever!

    To me this song is about someone in a relationship with another person that doesn't give care about them and knows it. But they are so in love with this person to stay with them as long as it takes them to realize how much they are needed. The reason i think this song is so good is because thats exactly how my last relationship was.

    General Commenthey ... well no hard feelings but if you didnt know As I Lay Dying is a christian band... when they said "His kind words just fall near youre feet with their last air" they were talking about God's words... and how God just wants the subject the song was written to, to just listen to Him. And it's talking about being ashamed of all the feelings you're hiding. Atleast Im pretty sure... I am a HUGE fan of As I Lay Dying and I've become familiar with their ways.. oh and it is one of their best songs. :-D good day!

    General CommentWhy the big deal about Christian bands???? Just because they are christion doesn't mean they are incapable of writting songs about anything else. Maybe this songs is about God and his relationship with us, maybe not, maybe their are more than one meaning, like every song has.......Jesus people! THEY ARE A BAND!!!THEY CAN WRITE ABOUT OTHER THINGS!!!! I AM SURE THAT THERE IS MORE TO THEIR LIFE THAN GOD.
