Everybody says they do, but you know they don't
They say they're looking out for you, but you know they won't
Can't you see I believe I'm living on faith
On my knees, and I can see the promise I can make

And life has taken me so far from shore
And I, I'm breaking free, I see what life is for
You take a little time for love but don't give in
And never open up the door, how can you win? Yeah,
Can't you see I survive just living on faith
On my knees but I'll arrive, and stand by your side

'Cause love has taken me, it's opened the door
And I, I'm breaking free, I see what love is for
Oh, I see what love is for
And I'm not afraid anymore

People searching for the truth they can't find
And everybody looks at you, but they're so blind
They're all lining up behind a door, they can't get in
They send another soul to war, it's such a sin
Can't you see I survive just living on faith?
On my knees but I'll arrive to stand by your side

And hope has taken me, it's opened the door
And I, I'm breaking free, I see what hope is for
I see what hope is for
No I'm not afraid anymore

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
