I once knew a guy, obsessed with the afterlife
Oh what a terrible day that was, he realized he'd wasted all his time
Time was ticking by, and he'd been left behind
And as the clock tick-tocked his heart did stop and everything he had was fucked
And we know not what we do (Can you hear them call?)
Will we ever make it through?
As they watch us fall from the sky to the ground to the see
Woe is me, woe is me, no one will save you now
We can only look away (away!)We'll not be victims there'll be no victims of to speak
And only then will we be free
And up will rise the meek
And when we fall we will fall together
No one will catch us so we'll catch ourselves
And where we roam we will roam forever
No one will understand what we meant
The beaten and the bruised, forsaken, the abused
Oh what a glorious day we'll have rising up and claiming all our dues
The day will come as sure as the ever-setting sun
All of those that self-imposed will find themselves so indisposed
And we know not what we do (Can you hear their call?)
Will we ever make it through?
As they watch us fall from the sky to the ground to the sea
Woe is me, woe is me, no one will save you now
We can only look away (away!)
We will not be victims there'll be no victims of to speak
And only then will we be free
And up will rise the meek
Now, with the line drawn in the wet sand
You need to tell us where to stand
Sitting waiting watching rotting everything they warned us of is true
Now tell me what we're all supposed to do
They're coming after all of us with everything they've got
With the fury of a soldier who will answer to his God
So how will we fight? All we have is logic and love on our side

    I think it's about opposing viewpoints, and how the world needs them both. Without evil good cannot exist and vice verse. This song says that if one side falls then the other will too. What ever the opposing forces are they need each other to survive. This band was incredibly profound in terms of this album.

    With or without religion, we must have meet the end... So, what is the truth after that, we dont know... We just do what we love even its forbiden... So, whats the truth ? Still dont know ? Well, maybe we will gonna be raised or punish... But, the point is its our fault for what happen in life...

    Don't waste your time. You only live once. We don't know too much about the afterlife... Can't count on god or anyone else to 'save' us. We 'roamed all our lives' so we can continue to roam, we have that power even after we're dead: we can face what ever comes after life

    I don't know all the biblical reasons for this song but i think this is what it means on simple terms

    This exact concept has been a massive crossroads in my life. On one hand i have my roman catholic views that have been drilled in the my head since the day i was born, in which i don't believe in a big white dude who sits on a cloud and watches you, i believe in the morals and ethics that come along with religion. The roman catholic believes have made me a god-fearing person where i fear what will happen if i don't believe that he has created all. But also i really enjoy being a will to pray to someone who even if they don't exist gives me comfort and helps me get through my day-to-day life.
    Yes i do believe wholeheartedly that you must enjoy your life while you have it, i have had lots of very great experiences throughout my life (am 17). I really feel as if i shouldn't be punished for creating as many great experiences as i can in my life while i have it. But the only thing thats been holding me back is my god-fearing beliefs. I will continue to create as many joyful experiences in my life as i possibly can and hopefully i will not end up in hell.
