I was born, I have lived, I will surely die
Facing defeat I'm still holding my head up high
Been deceived into thinking that it's alright
I just needed a reason to reach for the light
Now I've opened, opened, my eyes, Now I see it
The light and I need it

There's no doubt you can yourself out if you want to
Don't turn away, don't be shy, you've got questions so do I
Every day is a chance to change the story
Don't run away, take a shot, give it everything you've got
Without pain, tell me what's the point in glory?

Yesterday just a boy now I stand a man
I'm out on the edge feathers clutched in my hand and I know
That a time will come when all is done
Nothing will remain and so it goes

There's no doubt, you can get yourself out if you want to
When you're on the edge, if the current calls you
The jump cos to fall is beneath you, don't turn away, don't be shy
You've got questions so do I, every day is a chance to change the story
Don't run away, take a shot, give it everything you've got
Without pain, tell me what's the point in glory'
Don't run away, don't be shy, you've got questions so do I
Without pain, tell me what's the point in glory'

    This song is amazing and in my opinion it means that no matter what life throws at you wether it's good or bad yo should never be put off by what you truly want to do and have in your life and that if you battle through the hardship you will get what you deserve out of life and this is why i'm getting the chorus tattooed on my back so i always have the reminder that no matter what life throws at me i am determined to get what i want.

    This song to me means that you should live life to the full and don't turn away if thing's get hard or something tries to stop you from doing something like you want to and you should get out and see the world for what it is.

    This is a magnificent song which, in my opinion, pertains to embracing life, and seizing opportunities that lay before you, even when you're swayed to fear by the prospect. It's about never succumbing, and always persisting, for you always have to fight to attain the best things in life, and endure some degree of suffering to eventually find contentment and joy. So inspirational, just like every song on the brilliant new album. As humans, we have to realise life is transient, and make the best of the time we do have.
