Saints form together to fight against the holy fabels
The streets are where we pray
Hymns for the lonely wretched and forgotten
The feeling in our hearts won't ever fade away

We stand tall (united)
Watch them fall (divided)
Break the...

    I think it's about standing up for what you believe in and for yourself. Don't care what other people say or think about you.

    It's about standing up for yourself and not caring about whatever other people think of you! It's pretty much saying "Don't give a f about whatever people think of you and just live your life, not worrying about how low your self-esteem is."

    I think it means when everything in life is wrong you have the strength somewhere inside of you to fight your fears.

    "when your backs against the wall" and "When your life becomes a war" means like things are going against you "Sing it loud you hold the key" is like showing you don't have to be stand down and fight through your problem

    Well, I agree with others. This song is about telling the haters to stfu. You need to embrace yourself for who you are. And if you aren't who you want to be, "Set the world on fire" and strart from scratch, start over and create the person you want to be. It's all about embracing your inner self and showing the haters that every scar they lave on you just makes you who you are inside. The 'outcasts' must come together and revolt against those who judge us. We are who are we are. "The feeling in our hearts won't ever fasde away." In other words, how we feel inside will always be there, so we must fight for what we believe. There's no going against yourselves.

    I think this song is about when people are judging you and hating on you that you should just stand up for yourself and not care what they say! Only you know who you really are!

    I think it means that no matter what anyone thinks, or what happens in life, you can get through it, because everyone has the strength in their heart to fight for what they believe in.

    I strongly believe it means those who are outcasts and who are bullied for what they believe in should fight to be themselves "fight for all you know".That the outcasts will stand strong while the others who bully or who care of themselves will end up divided. And we will fight against those who scared us by bullying us.

    It's really just about being who you love and want to be and not letting someone tell you otherwise. We are standing up against those who hate us to bring around a new era of outcasts. Though some are to broken to fight in battle, and we need to care for them. They need to pay for what they've done to us and need to know that they can't stop us from doing what we want. It's not literally 'Setting the World On Fire' though...

    I think that this song is about standing up for who you are and not caring about what others think

    "proud in all you are showing every scar as your badge of honer" that i think is meaning to show all of the scars that people who have bullied you are leaving (im sorry if that didnt make a whole bunch of sense) and to just carry on in life

    My other thought is that they are writing this for us outcasts and we will rule the world >:D watch out haterz here we comee
