I never wanted
And I never cared before

I never wanted
And I never cared before
Take it back
This is a new day
I never wanted
And I never cared before
Take it back this is

How I long to regress
To the days before I took upon myself
The obsessions of this world
A day of innocence equating beauty
For tomorrow may fall
And today is already gone
Tomorrow may fall
Today is already gone

Take it back
This is a new day
I never wanted
This is a new day
And I never cared before
I never wanted
And I never cared before

I've grown tired of chasing
Convinced I was in need
I know the years I've spent
Only a slave to this
Tomorrow may fall
And today is already gone
I will no longer adore
These things that will never satisfy me

I have seen my world change
And then go back to where it came
In this vicious circle
We are all brought back to life
Only to die
Again
I have seen my
My world change
And then go back
Back to where it came
But without these barren obsessions
I am simply
I am simply free

I've seen my world change
Then go back to where it came

    The song could have different meaning depending on ones perception. In my opinion, i think its about a long time coming struggle that must come 2 an end.

    To Ailius: You might be right, you are probably wrong though. Not trying to start a drama filled internet feud with you but, AILD's lyrics are not all about god. AILD is not a christian band...they are christians IN a band..and Tim has said that their lyrics aren't preachy, they talk about everyday struggles, relationships, etc.

    In this song I'd have to agree with Fallenfromgrace and Mandeedollface.

    Personally, I'm atheist so I have no religious appeal towards this song, If it happens to be a religious song, then I look at AILD's song a bit different than a christian.

    And again, not trying to hurt anyone's feelings or anything, I'm just throwing my opinion out there. :P

    to me, this song means exactly what it says. without the Lord, everyone gets caught up in the things of this world and lets that consume them. with the Lord, everyone is free from the troubles of this world.

    Meaning: hes obsessed with pain and the consumed/addicted with the wron things and he is now choosing to start again. But he is depressed and feels alot of temptation and struggle, he is fighting for his right to be free and he wishes he was free.
