Man of the Hour Lyrics

Tidal waves don’t beg forgiveness
'CRASHED' and on their way
Father he enjoyed collisions; others walked away
A snowflake falls in may.
And the doors are open now as the bells are ringing out
Cause the man of the hour is taking his final...

    It is about God(old man,father) and his son Jesus who came to show us the way... Doors are open now because he died for our salvation. And its only goodbye for now because He shall return.

    This is song is about a final goodbye to a father. In this song he remembers his father.

    I think this song teaches us to never take a moment with our family for granted, because one day they will be gone.

    This song reminds me of the close friends or relatives I lost, we honor them. We can't bring them back because that's the nature of life. Life is pain, and pain is living.
