Alter Bridge – Still Remains lyrics
I cast a line when I saw you were drowning
Still you turn your back on me
Pulled you from the fire when you were burning
Still you never could believe

So carry on if you must go your way
Though it breaks my heart
Your free will still remains

I save you from your fall when you were slipping
Still you broke from me to run
So how can you justify the life you're living

You must carry on if you must go your way
Though it breaks my heart
Your free will still remains

You'll deny it all
You'll deny me once again
But I've seen it all
I know you've come to crawl
Back to me before the end

Carry on if you must go your way
Though it breaks my heart
Your free will still remains

So carry on if you must go your way
Though it breaks my heart
Your free will still remains
Still remains

    Straight up Old Testament prophet stuff. This is God speaking to someone explaining all the ways that He has saved this guy, and saying that even though it breaks His heart He's going to let this man go his own way. Later in the song God says that He knows that this guy will come to Him when he's in trouble but will turn away when things get better.
    This song could be interpreted a number of ways, but I'm 99% sure this is the correct interpretation. I read part of an interview with Mark Tremonti where he explained that this album is a bit of a concept album based on Myles Kennedy's struggles with faith. I love the honesty and transparency of the songs on this album!

    This song is a calling out from god that though he's always with you to pick you up when you fall. He will never take away your free will. He gave that gift to all of us and will never take it back. Though it brakes his heart "your free will still remains" in the end you'll come back to him. Because that's where you belong. Your his child. No mater how far you go from home. He's there. You'll come home.
