"Fearless (250 and Dark Stars)" as written by and Ed/lynch Brown....
When you see your breath
In the frozen night.
When your hope is on the guard
There's a running threat.
There's a new design
When the poison fills your heart.

Broken from the shattered hopes
And breathless from the stare.
Standing in this lonely room
I can see you there.

Lights from the waters
Have swept me away
So say your goodbye's now
This will say.
Drink from the water.
It swept me away.
So say your goodbye's now.
This will say.

Let the tidal pull
And the neon lights.
Let it spill across this place.
Like a deepened hole
From your glossy eyes.
There's a flame that marks the race.

Can you hear? Whispering this time?
Dream the fear.
Are you listening?

(Psalm 103:3)

    General CommentAs far as the song meaning goes... well the beginning seems to state our home status on earth.
    'Empty house far away
    Lost in lonely space
    You know you've felt the same'
    nah meen?

    Then I think it's talking about pain we may have had through out previous relationships and how that scares us away from becoming closer to Jesus.
    'From the shallows in love
    To the depths of your scars
    You know you want to change'

    The basis of the song I think based on the chorus is that we need to stop wallowing in self pity
    'So exit the Fall'
    And that we should not worry about things that we've done or things that have happened, cause in Jesus all things are made new 'And now it's over'

    Also I've interpreted a mention of the clean heart (metaphorically speaking) that Jesus gives us and that we will learn to accept cleansing from Jesus, not sulk in doubt and guilt
    'You're learning
    It's all before your heart'

    Then it seems to talk about Jesus being an escape from the lonely pains of life. Not to say with Jesus no pain, Just no LONELY pain. Jesus is always with us, we shouldn't be afraid, this is refracted in the female verse
    'I found a way out
    Through everything I've known
    I'm walking fearless
    With my faith down and all that I own
    Don't take my picture
    Cause I won't be there standing alone
    I'm living fearless, so fearless
    Like every day's my own'

    Basically the song is about freedom and comfort in Jesus.

    However when Trevor McNevan sings he seems to be talking about the seemingly undecidable decisions in life. To sin or not to sin, So many reasons to sin. But there will always be one everlasting reason not to. That's what I've interpreted from the song.

    General CommentSo I'm pretty sure that "vate" isn't a word. I don't know what actually goes there... but I'm thinking it's not that.
    This song is so awesome that when I heard it for the first time, my face actually detached from my head...

    General CommentI think as opposed to 'a vate' maybe it says of eight and when the female is singing I think it says 'with my fate down' due to the fact this is a christian band and faith ought never to be put down.

    General CommentI personally thought the song was about feeling down and returning to God.

    'Empty house far away
    Lost in lonely space
    You know you've felt the same
    From the shallows in love
    To the depths of your scars
    You know you want to change'

    I took this as someone lost in their own thoughts 'Lost in lonley space' the idea that people go through that there the only one feeling this way.

    'From the shallows in love
    To the depths of your scars'
    I thought this was just telling the source of pain our relationships with people and our pasts and scars that we hold and knowing inside we want to change.

    So exit the fall
    And now it's over
    You're learning
    It's all before your heart
    So exit the fall
    And now it's over
    You're learning
    It's all before your heart

    I'm still a bit confuessed with this but to me it seemed as if God talking to them (?)
    Telling them to 'exit the fall' it's all over and that they aren't alone anymore

    I really love this song though (=

    General CommentOkay so as someone who has gone through depression i think i have a pretty good grasp on what this song means.Agree or Disagree...this is just what it means to me.

    Empty house far away
    Lost in lonely space
    You know you've felt the same

    (This means you feel basically
    empty and lost and alone and
    its saying "you know you've felt the same")




    From the shallows in love
    To the depths of your scars
    You know you want to change

    (This means that like all the pain
    that love puts you through...its like the
    shallows of your life and to the depths of your scars
    probably means the scars from cutting your wrist
    and basically that the person wants to change their emo ways)




    In the rafters, a vate
    Fixed and spinning late
    There's a certain fear

    (not exactly sure what this means.heh.)




    Even light with control
    Lights outside our homes
    Wait for every tear

    (This means that basically you feel like
    everyone is watching you and judging you all the time
    and everyone is just waiting for you to break)

    So exit the fall
    And now it's over
    You're learning
    It's all before your heart

    (This means that you should step
    out of that state of mind and that everything
    will be okay)

    (the girls part is just really gay to me,sorry)

    Steady hands in the planes
    Calculated ways
    To call it ailing in figure
    Hearts far away
    When you work so late
    From a distant end

    (I think this means that
    people are just waiting to
    judge you and to say that
    you are weak and in pain
    even when you work so hard
    to keep your feelings under control)
