We set our aim on oblivion,
And we gave up on everyone we said we loved.
We turned in our keys,
As they turned in their graves.
We are the souls no God can save.

Yeah, I got rhythm and I got dreams
That move this body across the sea.
Relinquish all doubt in the water below me,
I could write my own damn symphony.

    General CommentI think this song is about not regretting anything you've done and how someone who can't say they've acomplished anything (or much) can't compare to some who can.
    The first stanza tells when "boat rockers" and people who don't take risks and stuff meet up at death, the ones who "lived there life to the metal" are just burying a little part of them and the ones who never rocked the boats are putting every part of them into the ground. "souls no God can save." = A soul that will never entirely be in rest.

    The second stanza talks of how his thoughts and dreams and all that fancy stuff takes him "across the sea" to new and exciting things. "I could write my own damn symphony" means Chris could write a great piece of work with all of the stories he has. Due to it being a symphony. he also means something others could only play, something they could never do. People who don't take chances can't compare to people who do.
