Lost in Forever (Scream)

Album: Murdered Love (2012)
  • The lead single from the Rock band P.O.D.'s eighth album Murdered Love, this song is a meditation on heaven. In our interview with lead singer Sonny Sandoval, who wrote the lyrics, he explained, "It's definitely more of a thought on the afterlife. Sometimes I find myself thinking about it a lot, because here we are. The meaning of life, the question, heaven and hell, everybody's wondering what's going to happen after we die. And being of faith, I have a peace of where I'll spend eternity, but at the same time, I have a heart and a burden for people that don't know and don't understand. So if I believe that heaven and hell exists, then well, wait for me, because I believe I'm going to go there. But what about the people that are lost and maybe aren't? My heart breaks for them. So that's just a thought of sometimes it's a peaceful thought, and sometimes it's a very scary thought."
  • The video was directed by Spence Nicholson, who has also done clips for Augustana, Hollywood Undead, and Angels Fall. Shortly after it hit YouTube, the video accumulated over a million views. In the clip, an astronaut is haunted by memories as he walks on a barren planet. In our interview with Nicholson, he explained: "To me, 'Lost in Forever' was a very powerful track. There are many beliefs about what may come after life (and I won't get into mine here), so I felt like going with something specifically vague that could serve as a proxy to many people's beliefs would best serve the track. I'm glad you saw the '60s sci-fi vibe in there. I've always been a fan of shows like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, shows that had big ideas wrapped in small packages."

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjDoes Anybody know if there is a PA version of this album? Or are all versions clean? The Only time they supposedly curse is in the last song, but's said six times (lead and in the background) and it's bleeped out. I'm just wondering if I accidentally got the clean version or if they made all versions like that? If someone could help me out it would be gratly appreciated.
