Their cries are blown away with the wind
How passive can we be before humanity is lost?
Turning our backs on those who need love
We must not rest while healing is needed

Tear down the veil
That bars your heart from feeling this
Dedicate yourself
Give your souls to compassion

With open arms embrace this heart
With open eyes behold the truth
Embrace this life

So little time is left
We must be relentless
In our pursuit of those in torment

Tear down the veil (tear down the veil)
That bars your heart from feeling this
Dedicate yourself (dedicate yourself)
Become the voice of compassion

With open arms embrace this heart
With open eyes behold the truth
Embrace this life


Can you reject yourself?
Can you feel their agony?
In a world that feeds on disregard
Heal the broken hearted

    General Commenti try to look at the christian influence in all of killswitchs songs, theres usually a message in there somewhere. i think this is mostly about putting your life aside for others, but the second to last paragraph seems like its saying give yourself to the truth-GOD. man that guys great. well, thats me anyway.

    General CommentI think the song is about rejecting your "pain" and selfesness, and to gain an understanding that there are people in this world that have absolutly nothing and have suffered far more then you. You souldn't be wasting time on your sorrows and help those that have suffered greater tragedy then you could possibling imagine. it's such a great message, most of the world is so self invovled that we've turned our backs to those that reallly need help, reject your sorrows and materialism.

    General CommentYes... KsE certainly has many Christian messages in their songs. This one especially. This song is talking about the general message of god - be selfless and love your brothers and sisters (other people in the world) as you would love yourself.

    General Commentin my opinion, i think its about people who suffer in the world and this person(s) is turning their backs against them because they r only thinking or feeling sorry for themselves.

    "can you reject yourself, can u feel their agony?" i think shows that u shouldnt b selfish and you should "reject yourself" to help others who need help more.

    :) just my opinion! x x

    General CommentMy absolute favorite song on this album. Great melody. I think the song is about being depressed and uncaring about the world, and how he rejects all things around and takes for granted his life is shit. Just my two cents though.

    General CommentIf you want to look at it through a Christian view, you might say that the KSE book itemizes the Devil.

    This man wants nothing more than to see his love one last time. He would do anything, including give his life. Think of the KSE book as a pact with the devil:

    I let you see her once, and you die.

    General CommentJust because someone has materially nothing doesn't mean they are suffering. KSE has a very spiritual tone to all their songs. This song is singing about the people who are lost in lies. The people who are without love the people who still have hate in their hearts. "Can you feel their agony" is not so much a question but is saying you should be able to feel their agony. Heal those in need.
