Oh my God, I can feel something moving
The air is still growing thick but it's soothing
I've done nothing to merit forgiving
But if the chance should arise and you hear me

Make my voice be the proof that they need
That light beams even from the tongues unseen

I've never felt so alive
The wind is ushering a change and
I can't believe I'm alive
After your attempts to free the pain and

You are the new sign of proof
A calloused heart can still be raised so
Stand and believe, that it's true
You hold the voice to change the sea

All the tearing of my skin starts deserting
All the guilt and the shame of the games
I played deaf to my heart starts to fade

Now I will speak for every one of us
The rebel dogs who rejected love
Chew the stitches until you taste the blood
Or find so much more when you give it up

Give it up
Give it up

We are monsters on our own (we are monsters on our own)
Banded together we'll overcome (banded together we'll overcome)
We are monsters on our own (we are monsters on our own)
Banded together we'll overcome (banded together we'll overcome)

Now that I've found you

I've never felt so alive
The wind is ushering a change and
I can't believe I'm alive
After your attempts to free the pain and

You ought to know
Shine above
A calloused heart can still be reached so
Stand and believe, that it's true
You hold the voice to change the sea

Don't expect us to apologize,
Rebel dogs in the spotlight
We want no truce
No truce or compromise

    It's about the daughter... This is a concept album. The athiest daughter in this story has now found faith. After killing her father in the previous song for what he was becoming she has now realized true faith because in the previous song god tells her that he will not let her slip away. This song is her being excited about her faith and the freedom she now feels. Along with her being told she is the new sign of proof, a calloused heart can be raised. This refers to her athiest beliefs at the beginning of the album and the murder she committed in the previous song.

    I think this is about someone who is finally feeling the holy spirit and they are sensing a change in their life. "oh my god, i can feel something moving, the air is still grown thick but it's soothing, i've done nothing to merit forgiving... " sometimes the holy spirit is referred to a thick fog that you breathe in that brings peace. And just talking about how the holy spirit is changing him/her from the inside out.

    I have no freaking clue whether it's about excepting jesus into your heart, cuz the first part sounds like the guy on the cross next to jesus who said 'remember me when you go into your kingdom', but that's just a 13-year-old's oppinion... I honestly have no real clue...
