Been down this road
Too many times
(Been down this road too many times)

You taught me how
It feels to die
(You taught me how it feels to die)

We learn
What it feels like
To feel pain
For the first time
(For the first time)

We learn
What it feels like
To suffer
Feels like to suffer

Give me the strength
To face what's in front of you
In front of me
By any length
To face what's in front of you
In front of me.

I watch it fall before my eyes
(I watch it fall before my eyes)
This dream we've built for our whole lives
(This dream we've built for our whole lives)

We learn
What it feels like
To feel pain
For the first time
(For the first time)

We learn
What it feels like
To suffer
Feels like to suffer

Give me the strength
To face what's in front of you
In front of me
By any length
To face what's in front of you
In front of me.

Vanquish that which kills you, darling
Forsake not the dream
Through the world I feel, I'm falling
Forsake not the dream

Crest fall in
On the crestfallen
Collide
And collapse

Crest fall in
On the crestfallen
Collide
And collapse

Give me the strength
To face what's in front of you
In front of me
By any length
To face what's in front of you
In front of me.

Vanquish that which kills you, darling
Forsake not the dream
Through the world, I feel I'm falling
Forsake not the dream

Forsake
(Forsake)
Forsake
(Forsake)
Forsake not the dream
(Forsake not the dream)

Forsake
(Forsake)
Forsake
(Forsake)
Forsake not the dream
(Forsake not the dream)

    I feel that none of those meanings are correct. All the shows i have seen trivium at that they have played this song, (3 shows) they dedicated it to the native americans in the audience, i think it has something to do with the genocide that happened to their people.

    It means the one u shared the dream with suddenly leaves and u feel pain like u have never felt b4 u try to keep the dream alive but it only makes u suffer through loneliness the only way out is to vanquish the one who gave up on the dream.

    Forsake not the dream - no matter what happens, once must always keep whats true to them close. That being a dream, a relationship, a friend, a value and any kind.

    Since these songs on this album has no real meaning, to me i feel as if its saying even when everything is against you don't let up on your dreams, preserver through the pain and challenges life throws at you
