Forsaken

Album: An Ocean Between Us (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • We asked lead singer Tim Lambesis, "Is 'Forsaken' about your faith, or is there another meaning?" Here's his reply:

They are the ones who have been forsaken by many of us consumers who oppress them, yet somehow we are the ones full of emptiness and loneliness." (learn more at asilaydying.com)
