Fall to your knees, accomplishing nothing.
Fall to your knees, only to exercise your schedule.
Abandon calendar.

What has come with such preaching is loneliness.
Profit: zero, achievement: zero.

Forward can't be stopped.
It just goes to show that some words are useless.
It just goes to show that some words are useless.
Take all your medals, take all your ribbons,
Take all your awards, take them, take them back to the ground.

Our youth is lost;
A product of the created circumstances.
All I can say is maybe
Maybe, maybe
All I can say is maybe
This is what I've been expecting all along, all along.
Now's the time of weakness, now's the time of blood.
Perhaps even the whole-hearted had wished for this.
Now's the time of weakness, now's the time of blood,
And still the time of lions.
Push everything, force everything.

We've all sung of the end, but who truly understands it?
All along, all along

Forward can't be stopped,
It just goes to show that some words are useless.
It just goes to show that some words are useless.
Take all your medals, take all your ribbons,
Take all your awards, take them back to the ground.

    The meaning of this song can't be interpreted unless you wrote it. I'm not saying it can't mean anything to you. But just enjoy the music. This song is epic, and maybe one day you'll realize that analyzing stuff like this is just subject to your own opinion.

    Service, is the purpose. Humiliate you before Him, this is the first step. we are youths but not foolish, (In my case) this is a call to comply the great comision [Matthew 28:19]. All is a process that continues and continues without stopping, one must do the things for the ones that have been calls by Him. ..’' Now' s the swindle of weakness, now' s the swindle of blood''. Everything that cause achieved, earned by you same does not have value... "Take all your medals, take all your ribbons...", your identity for (or in) Christ is not based on those things.

    some typo's (for rejecting a force,) but for the meaning of this song its pretty simple. The first set of lyrics (fall to your knees...) is saying do not follow your faith only when it works for your schedule; follow your faith and everything falls below it. Also, when the song says forward cannot be stopped TDWP is referring to the fact that the end will come and no matter how hard people try not everyone will see the light that most with faith see. When referring to the medals and ribbons TDWP is attempting to convey that knowledge, power, honor of this world truly means nothing, a point that Jesus himself stressed as well. Furthermore, the meaning of the 4th stanza is that all that is happening in the world was seen by many and now is truly coming to surface. He says he hoped for it because it is bring us all one step closer to the lord and eternal life. The time of weakness, blood and lions refers to this being the time to really be strong in our faith because it is the time of weakness and violence in the world but people still seek to obtain more knowledge, life, and power in this world. It is amazing to see how honest these lyrics can really be.

    its just going to be so difficult to watch the world crumble when the end finally does arrive. All those who showed faith will have no fear in the end, and all those who had no faith will quake in terror of what they had been so wrong about. I am not going to be the one who says I know how everything will come, but for those who do not believe in God and have the blind eyes of a self-righteous human being let me pose one question. When your life of only a few years ends on this planet where will you have to go? Non-existance is a terrible price to pay for reject a force, such as God to save you. If you truly do not believe in religion that is all your choice, but if you neglect to believe just because you don't want to live your life by some simple rules then a sad future shall come for you and your self-absorbed ways.
