Song by song review by JD92

This album was VERY impressive in my opinion. It was amazing both lyricly and musically. Make sure you get the duluxe edition, you don't want to miss out on the two bonus tracks.
The first song Hero forces you to realize that you really do need a Hero in your life. The Hero(Jesus) is the only One that can save you.
The second song, Monster, shows you for what you really are. We are all sinners, monsters inside. I think that Monster points you in the direction of Hero and that they both go hand in hand with each other.
Awake and Alive makes you feel just as it says it does, awake and alive. This song inspires me to face the world head on with vigor like I've never felt.
Now the song Don't Wake Me I can't really relate to it but I do think that it is a great song for those who can relate to it.
One Day Too Late I have got to say is my favorite song on this album, it's lyrics mean so much to me, it encourages people to strive harder in life so as not to waste the precious little time we have. Time wasted is time regretted later.
It's Not Me It's You I really do like, but I feel like it's a song that makes you blame other people for your own mistakes. But I do enjoy it.
Should've When You Could've is one of my least favorite songs on this album because I can't really relate to it.
The song Believe is my least favorite of the album. I don't really have much to say about it.
Forgiven is another one of the best songs on the album. It helps the person realize that no matter how many promises you break, no matter how many times you turn away, God is always there to take you back and forgive you. The part where it says "I've loved another" is like a sermon my pastor preached one day out of the Bible where God was using a man to demonstrate how he feels about us. The man was instructed by God to marry a women who was unfaithful so that he could live how God feels about us because of how unfaithful we are.
Sometimes is right on target for me, that is how I feel sometimes. I feel like I don't want to be a better person, or feel better when I'm feeling bad. Sometimes I want other people to feel as bad or hurt as I do. Sometimes I know what I'm doing wrong and I just don't care. This song really pulls it out and puts it in perspective, it gets a person thinking.
Never Surrender is another life saving song by Skillet. It just pulls you through the tough times you are going through. It's another song that hits home with it's lyrics.
The saddest song on this album is Lucy, when I really think about it it brings tears to my eyes. It is left open enough that it can relate to any loss that a person has experienced, from suicide, abortion, death, anything really. It's lets you know that you have to love your family/friends while they are still there.
Dead inside is kind of like Hero to me, I just love belting out ♪Dead Inside! my heart and soul flatline♫ It's just fun to sing.
Would It Matter is an awesome song too. I always think of it would matter if anybody would care or notice if I just "left". I always wonder how I would be remember or if I would even be remembered. Sometimes I wonder if it matters that I try or not. It just, I can't describe it, it's just really great.
