It's buried deep within the past and I
Hope it doesn't last
(It's something I already chase, I already chase)
I try to give it all away, but it's never going to fade
(It's something I don't want to face, I don't want to face)
I know you feel it's all the same
But I promise that I'll change
(It's something I already chase, I already chase)
You know I'm trying to believe
That you're never going to leave
(It's something I don't want to face, I don't want to face)

There's nothing left
The fear is gone

And when my heartstrings come undone
I will wait for you, pray for you
Before I make my final run
I will stay with you, decay with you

I know I'm not the perfect one
And this pain has just begun
(It's something I already chase, I already chase)
You bring me to a better path
And it's everything I lack
(It's something I don't want to face, I don't want to face)


If you fade out without me
Will you know all about me?
If you fade out without me
Will you know all?

    General Commentlittlehugs.....before you continue to diss up my favorite band I must now show you how foolish YOU are.

    The Demon Hunter symbol is infact a demon skull with rather large horns. Now...may i please draw you're attention to THE BULLET HOLE IN THE SKULLS FOREHEAD! These guys are the personal demon hunters...I have figured that the name originates from them hunting down their own personal demons and sins that torture every Christian's soul. These guys are trying to encourage us to hunt our own demons...such as addiction(Song: Ribcage),.... the ways of the world and other religion (The Science of Lies), ....those depressing time in our life when we wanna give up (The Tide Began to Rise), and encouraging us to be PROUD we are christians (UNDYING!).

    These guys are sincerely christian. Visit "" and look at their song may wake you up.

    Until next time...cya!

    General CommentTo me personally, I see it about sin. A specific sin that's really hard for you to give up. And you promised God so many times that you would stop doing it, but no matter what, you keep turning to it. "i hope it doesn't last
    It's something i already chased, i already chased"

    And everytime you do, you feel seperated from Him. You want to believe that He will keep giving you chances, that He's patient. "trying to believe that you're never gonna leave"

    Still, you keep commiting this sin, and eventually you stop fearing God, because you got so used to Him giving you second chances.. "There's nothing left! The fear is gone"

    That's my interpretation.

    General CommentI recon its about someone whos standing by a loved one as they die."You know i'm trying to believe that you're never gonna leave" the spirit of this person will stay with them even when they're gone.this is just what i think, but fooking hell its a ace it.

    General CommentI know this song is about his wife, but I like to relate it to loving a girl that isnt completely where she needs to be God, but she is sooo close, and you are torn between being with her and your spirituallity, so wait for her, praying that God works it out so you can marry her one day. That is what I relate it to in my life

    General CommentThe song seems best suited to a relationship between two humans, but I suppose one could also relate it quite easily to the relationship between a man and his God.

    As was already said, this song was written about his wife, it's about his wholehearted dedication no matter how miserable it makes him, that he would willingly decay with her.

    If one were to relate this to one's relationship with God, one could see how a man could attempt to be so dedicated to God that he would actively pursue Him regardless of what suffering or misery he may encounter as a result. Becoming so dependant that he dreads the concept that he may ever be distant from God.

    General CommentThis song, to me, is about being reborn and trying to overcome sin.

    General CommentDemon Hunter is christian hardcore. Just look at their other songs and it will make more sence.

    Anyways, yet another great song made by the only christian group I can stand listening to.

    General CommentI love this song! Its on the Resident Evil Apocolypse soundtrack and it is how I discovered Demon Hunter. My husband is so into Kutless and wanted me to find heavy christian rock similar to Mortification, Tourniquet
