Still on the Christian topic though, I also agree that BB has shifted gears from a dark and demonic kind of mood to a bright Christian feel to their songs, i’m not saying the band is Christian, but from my experience with being a Christian for my entire life, I do think BB is starting to fall into the “lines” of spiritual and Christian. Maybe somebody's significant other. }; I'm just not that religious myself, Deciphering the poetry is a great way to out it it's pretty hard for me with this album, It's on iTunes radio to listen to if you're in the USA.

I believe in a personal walk with the Lord in areas that the Bible doesn’t really touch upon, and that’s all about faith. But, again, if you listen to “Until the End” and “Forgotten” (at least i believe that’s the name of the song lol), they use language that most christian bands usually wouldn’t use, and in their song “Blow Me Away” on their album “Saturate”, in the middle of the song, he yells out “Don’t fight me God!” which isn’t really towards christianity. I really like this band,and i’m glad that it has some believers in it so they can influence the other band members. Also, what the devil may use for bad, GOD can use for good.

Failure - The chorus is the most telling part of the song to me. To me when I hear this song, especially following Divide, I hear a desperate cry to a God. I agree that art is subjective. While your at it, pray for literally everything, like I said don’t stop praying and we’ll all be Christians sooner or later, just keep praying (pardon my repetition) (and as far as BB goes, “sooner or later” wasn’t a pun, you should know what I mean).
