Brace yourself for the climb is steep
You'll need every ounce of brawn
For the mountain won't stop 'til you bleed.

Beware of headlines that volume the growing deceit
That justice will not begin to breed without smoke
Breed without smoke

Keep close things you learned from the fall
Cast your wounds to heal without flaw
Keep close things you learned from the fall
Cast your wounds to heal without flaw

Beware
Beware for there's a zealot unleashed and sighting the end
Through a scope of righteousness that's blinded by blood on the lens
He won't stop until his claws reach his faults and he sees he's not the
Hands of God

He'll choke on the smoke
Choke on the smoke

Keep close things you learned from the fall
Cast your wounds to heal without flaw
Keep close things you learned from the fall
Cast your wounds to heal without flaw

Keep close things you learned from the fall
Cast your wounds to heal without flaw
Keep close things you learned from the fall
Cast your wounds to heal without flaw

Cast your wounds
Cast your wounds or you'll choke on the smoke
Choke on the smoke
You'll choke on the smoke that you breathe from your own code

    I believe this is talking about how many people believe we must fight to win the wars we fight, how disciples of christ should take up arms, or that people in general need to respond to violence with more violence.
    "beware of headlines that volume the growing deceit.
    That justice will not begin to breed without smoke.
    Breed without smoke".
    Obviously it is saying that although many believe that justice can only be served through violence, or smoke (as in a fire or a gun), this is not the truth but a deceiving headline.
    Th chorus, keep close the things you learned from the fall, is talking about the original fall of man from the garden of eden, and the next line, cast your wounds to heal without flaw, is speaking about how one should cast the wounds, physical, emotional, spiritual, or psychological, upon god in order to have them heal properly. And that if you don't, you will choke on the smoke of your own cause, the false idea you created and believed will be your downfall in the end no matter how good it seemed.
