We Carry On

  • Lyrics
  • At 3:24, this is typical of the length of an Incarnate track. Jesse Leach told TeamRock: "You'll notice that most of the songs on this record are around the three-minute mark. That's my style, and it harkens back to punk and hardcore: make your point and get out of there, and don't bore anybody with all the other stuff. There are plenty of bands out there that are epic and amazing and play six or seven minute songs. Opeth, for example, are one of my favourite bands and I love that they play long songs; they're proggy and technical and incredible. But we're not that band. We're a keep it quick and to the point kind of band. We're here to write hooks and have fun."

    "But we also gave ourselves permission to have a couple of slow songs on this record, and this is another one of those," Leach continued. "There's a lot of pain in this song, and in that sense it's another soul song, with the positivity in the message that we carry on. There's always a way to push and move forward, even when you're battered and broken, and that's kind of the general theme here."
