This moment will too pass us by.
It's this notion inside all of us to prioritize
Through our selfish eyes.
To be the bull behind the rampage,
The reason for all the riot.

We'll feed our flame before wasting time on everyone else's,
With more problems and less pride.
We'll feed our flame before wasting time on everyone else's,
The gallows were not supposed to look like this.

Oh God, we live in misery, lying here in desperation.

We need you here more than anything right now... right now.

If everything's relative,
Then why the emptiness in our souls? (2x)

Trying to untie the knot we thought
We were untying our entire lives,
We're busied up and burnt out...

Everyone together, we will strengthen ourselves. (3x)
We will.

Because now we know
You won't ever fly fast enough to make time stand still.
You won't ever fly fast enough to make time stand still.

Stop, listen, and learn. (2x)

You won't ever fly fast enough to make time stand still.
Stop, listen, and learn. (4x)

    @ThoughtsFromHearts: religion is not a part of this song whatsoever. From what i know about ABR has nothing to do with religion. Its about one thing, a relationship. This relationship is with a savior who has rescued from the kingdom of darkness and made us joint heirs with the father. thats what true Christianity is about. its not religion at all.

    He's suffering on earth because of his belief in god and in christianity, and he wants the pain to end and god to help him on his apostolic mission. It's about strength in your faith in god and strength on fulfilling your earthly mission to bring others to god, and though it's hard it'll work out in the end.

    The meaning is that so many people say that morality is relative and morality doesn't actually matter. But then why do we feel so empty!

    If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. (1 peter 4:15 niv)

    If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs. (1 peter 4:15 nlt)

    It says in these scriptures. Meddler means "a busy body" or always prying ino someone elses business. It says in the song "to be the bull behind the rampage. Easy as that guys.

    As christians were taught to love god,love people.and i really think thats what this song is all about.when it talks about(if everything is relative... Then why the emptiness in our soul... ). I think what thats saying if there wasnt an absolute truth(jesus christ)then why do we have a sense of emptiness or longing for something else or more like theres more to life,in our souls.the other thing is loving people is says(we'll feed our flame,before wasting time on everyone else's). This talks about us being so self centered that we forget the part about loving others,we do that to show people gods love,christs love,which is what we were called to do.salt and light.
