This is it
And this is all that there is,
There's no right or wrong,
No king, no throne to defend.
'Cause we're all that exists.
No blessing God,
No judge alive,
There's no cost or calls from the top.

We're all on our own!
We're on our own!

No sides exist in this world that we live
No beacons, no prophet
This is it
We are the atheist writ.
No preachers, no new born believers,
Your faith is in jest

What if we're wrong?
What if we're not all alone?
What if we're lost?
And we missed the whole point of it all?
What if I'm wrong?
What if we're not all alone?
What if our peace, can never be found on our own?

I saw God die!
I saw God die!

We're on our own!

Well if all that remains, is our avaricious wit,
Then an eye for an eye is the only law that can exist.

So don't use your romance to soften defeat,
And trophies of war to boast of your feats,
You've failed and you've failed
Because your body is weak,
And you'll never be as strong as you dream to achieve.

What if we're wrong?
What if we're not all alone?
What if we're lost?
And we missed the whole point of it all?

But I saw God die
I saw God die
I saw God die
I saw God die

    I believe the meaning of this song is that without god, what's the point... Why are there nations or people to lead them if there is no god on high, whats to define right or wrong? It doesn't make any sense "what if we're wrong? " without god there is no reason.

    It's after the son of the morning battle, after satan's horns are cut off they fall to the ground and both god and satan disappear. Happy?
