I need you to be the strength of widows and sole survivors
I need you to be as fearless as new mothers and new fathers
I need you to be the hope of hearts who lost true love
I need you to be the might of their first kiss
I need a purpose and I need a reason
I need to know that there is trophy and meaning
To all that we lose and all we fight for
To all our loves and our wars
Keep breathing
Keep living
Keep searching
Keep pushing on
Keep bleeding
Keep healing
Keep fading
Keep shining on
This is for the hearts still beating

    General Commentwow, i can't believe nobody has commented on this song yet. such an amazing song from the new album. anyway...judging from what the overall tone of you fail me seems to be, i think that this song is meant to be an 'encouragement' to the downhearted. jake bannon has such a unique way of creating poetic imagery...in this song, the message seems to be to not give up, to keep on. whatever the circumstances may be, or whatever may have happened, you still have to go on and to not give up. i think this is especially evident in the last part of the song (keep breathing, keep living/keeping searching etc etc) good stuff.

    General CommentI'd have to agree with you on that. Im so glad I decided to check this band out. They are really good, and quite different compared to alot of stuff I'v heard. I love the lyrics too....

    General CommentIt gave me chills when Converge opened with this song..Such an amazing introduction to a great cd. Refused17 pretty much summed it up with the meaning of the song.
    If you haven't seen Converge live yet, you are missing out. Jake bannon looks lika a ragdoll on stage its unforgettable.
