"Never Again" as written by and Benjamin Burnley Keith Wallen....
Carry me under, make me abandoned
Show me what's left, show me what's left
Beautiful anger, breaking the pattern
Show me what's left, show me what's left

Take the colour from your eyes
I bleed for you, I bleed for you
Bring the broken back to life
We'll make it through, we'll make it through

Empty and perfect, shattered and worthless
Show me what's left, show me what's left
Dragging me further, forget to remember
Show me what's left, show me what's left

Take the colour from your eyes
I bleed for you, I bleed for you
Bring the broken back to life
We'll make it through, we'll make it through

Never again, never again
Time will not take the life from me
Never again, never again
Time will not take the life from me

And after this world is out of reach
Sober and silent, faded and violent
Hopeless, I fight to fall between
Never surrender, out of the embers
Save a space inside for me

Take the colour from your eyes
I bleed for you, I bleed for you
Bring the broken back to life
We'll make it through, we'll make it through

Never again, never again
Time will not take the life from me
Never again, never again
Time will not take the life from me

    General CommentThe sequel to Angels Fall and probably a secret B-side! My favorite on the album and that's saying A lot! This song is all about persevering and leaving the past behind. Also learning from the dark past and promising to have a better present and future. Rising from the ashes is key, not staying down and out. "I bleed for you" is helping someone during dark times. This is so much like Angels Fall - I love it.

    General CommentIt's like promising to never fall back into old habits or something that was killing you in the past but also asking to be remembered. Moving on but not totally forgotten.

    -I bleed for you--> shows he cares about whoever he is directing the lyrics to. It's a tender way to say I see that you're in pain or had a lot of pain and it hurt me too but I'm here for you and I completely understand what you're going through. It could even mean because I feel your pain and it really hurts me. While you're emotionally unavailable, I bleed and feel all the things you don't.

    -save a space inside for me---> he's asking them to still hold on to him, even if life takes them down separate paths. You reserve a special place in your heart for those you love dearly; best friends, good friends, family, and sometimes an ex (If they were someone important in your life who added significant meaning and changed you or your life in a way that made you grateful to have known them)

    -Never again---> I won't surrender to my weakness, addiction, depression, or whatever the conflict was. I promise.

    It's a very original song with an inspirational meaning. Don't give up!

    General CommentI'm assuming this is about his sobriety and issues with alcohol. I think the title "Never Again" is basically a declaration to himself that he'll never relapse.

    My InterpretationPlacing the music video aside, I think this song is about a girl and a guy. He wants to know what’s going to happen next between them; “Show me what’s left”. She went through many phases; going out with him, leaving him, becoming angry (beautiful anger), breaking that pattern, empty and perfect, shattered and worthless, and then things got better. He became “Sober and silent” “Faded” like he didn’t matter to her and “violent” angry because of it. He wants her to save a space inside of her heart for him and not let him go. “We’ll make it through” is him saying they can pull through and be together if she tries. “Bring the broken back to life” I think means bring the relationship back to how it was. He wants to fix it. She’s been through several phases and he’s sober now. He won’t ever let life bring him down again and he wants her to “never surrender” never stop fighting her demons too. At the same time, he doesn’t want her to give up on their love or friendship or bond that they once had. It’s okay for her and him to recover but he’s saying after rising from the ashes, don’t forget about everything they were. He wants to be held on to.

    (describes her)
    Carry me under, make me abandoned
    Show me what's left, show me what's left
    Beautiful anger, breaking the pattern
    Show me what's left, show me what's left

    Take the colour from your eyes
    I bleed for you, I bleed for you
    Bring the broken back to life
    We'll make it through, we'll make it through (He’s saying he believes they can pull through and all the pain she felt, he felt it too. He bled for her, metaphorically)

    (describes her)
    Empty and perfect, shattered and worthless
    Show me what's left, show me what's left
    Dragging me further, forget to remember
    Show me what's left, show me what's left

    Take the colour from your eyes
    I bleed for you, I bleed for you
    Bring the broken back to life
    We'll make it through, we'll make it through

    Never again, never again
    Time will not take the life from me
    Never again, never again
    Time will not take the life from me (He won’t go down with his depression or do what kills him)

    (Describes him)
    And after this world is out of reach
    Sober and silent, faded and violent
    Hopeless, I fight to fall between
    Never surrender, out of the embers
    Save a space inside for me (He wants her to never forget him and to hold a special place for him inside her heart)

    General CommentI believe this song is about how people rely too much on cosmetic and product to make us live longer and look young and it saying how these chemical are destroying us while we're being told it can heal is and make us better (bring the broken back to life)
