Allow what’s done to preach new insight to your life.
Hindsight is perfect vision.
The past is easiest to see.
Clear a path, Stand aside.
We’re carrying the torch now,
There’s no stopping us.
You think you’re everything to everyone.
Go ahead, Partake in it,Justify it. Become engulfed in it.
It will eat you alive.
This is not a one way road,
You’re headed for the dead end.
You might think you’re everything to everyone.
Well pardon me if I intrude.
You’re not a perfect man in a perfect world, Look at where your ignorance has brought you.
All this will be buried.
Like the fall of Rome, you will come crashing down.
The truth hurts, but denial’s what will kill you.
All that you loved, all that you treasure, will pass with time.
Blinded by the inability to see beyond flesh and blood.
Shifting blame with a log in your eye. Insisting that a string tied to your limbs is what’s to blame.

Suck it up and bite the bullet.

    This is talking about the sinful desired of the flesh. How no matter how much you lie to yourself and try to convince the world that what you are doing is justified, god will judge you in the end. It's about being blinded by satan as to not see god's truth, which is that you are worldly and sinful. "the truth hurts but denial's what will kill you" means yes it may be difficult and painful to live by god's will sometimes but in the end denying his truth is what kills your soul.

    its about a person who's allowing his past to define his future. A person who thinks that their so important that the world isn't going to go on just because they aren't. This song to me is saying that if you put yourself on a pedastule and you become full of yourself that one day your not gonna be anything & don't forget it.
