Skillet: Never Surrender Meaning

Never Surrender Lyrics

Do you know what it's like when
You're scared to see yourself?
Do you know what it's like when
You wish you were someone else
Who didn't need your help to get by?

Do you know what it's like
To wanna surrender?

I don't wanna feel like this...

    It's about someone suicidal, begging for help from someone. To pull them out of depression, and help them get better. They don't want to feel tired and sad anymore, they don't want to hate themselves. They need someone to be there and convince them to live. It's really a beautiful song.

    Whatever you want, you can't give on
    The song is saying, you can't give up if you want something

    No matter what, when life throws seemingly endless bullcrap at you, never surrender. God created us strong, vibrant creatures. If we power through things with our humanly strength and God's guidance, we can never lose

    I have a person I've always wanted to just ask them out, but they either get a boyfriend or are out of touch because they're at another school. I wake up almost every morning feeling like I can't live with myself for not making my move, I'm my own worst enemy right now. But just seeing her face just gives me another reason to never surrender. But even if I'm not who I wanna be, I can still try. That's what this song means to me, a person that's impossible, but strangely simple. (Btw, this person is basically my clone so no wonder why it's hard!)

    It's a cry for help. Hes asking if they know what its like to be so down. He wants to get better and he's begging someone to help him. "Never surrender" is him saying don't give up on me.

    What I think it means is no matter how hard life gets, just look past it and keep moving forward. There's always people that love and care for you, so never surrender. This actually reminds me of Elementary School, where I was bullied mercilessly, and had no friends. For no reason. Then in third grade somebody stood up for me, and had told me "Look past it all. Never Give Up. Your an unique person,and don't let them tell you else wise." This song really reminds me of my best friend, so always remember, look past all the bad things in life, and always move forward. For get you're mistakes and loses, and never surrender to the fact that you would never get them back, because you could get something better in return.

    My personal interpretation is that some has a problem in their life, and they notice a problem. As this person looks to find out how to correct the flaw, he/she decides suicide is the only way out. This person cries out to God asking for forgiveness. And with God's mercy, this person is forgiven and became a whole new person.

    it's about hating who you are
    (Do you know what it's like when
    You're not who you wanna be?
    Do you know what it's like to
    Be your own worst enemy
    Who sees the things in me I can't hide?)
    and wanting to die. But remembering that there is at least one person who cares and they don't want you to surrender.

    My interpretation is that, he says "Never surrener" to death. He is saying that no matter how hard things get, you can overcome just about anything as long as you have somebody by your side to help you through. I noticed that some people are saying that person is God, but im not so sure that it has anything to do with god. I think hes just talking about anybody ingeneral that will "put you back together" Friend, family, ect.

    My interpretation is that, he says "never surrender" to death. It's saying that you can make it through anything even when your at your lowest. Life is tough, but you can get through it with the help of God. It's about not being comfortable with yourself... But don't give into the pressure to be "perfect." nobody is perfect, so just learn to love yourself. God is always there to help you through tough times! <3

    I read somewhere that John Cooper said it was about an eating disorder.

    There's someone who cares, don't surrender to the pressures 'cuz ther's hope at the end of a seemingly hopeless trial. We all reach a breaking point; that point where we just want to give in. This song is to tell everyone that someone else feels that too. Its a desperate plea to someone (God) that they would stop the need for surrender.
