Memento Mori
by Flyleaf



 

Circle encircles the earth
Chance and choice break his heart
His innocent arm moves to save me and I am spared
His beautiful arm is bloody and cut off
His heart ripped out to show me he loved
But I would not believe him
He did all that he could
I still would not believe him

I left his arms empty and tied
Out stretched for me until he died
I left his arms empty and tied
Outstretched for me until he died
No man shows greater love
Than when a man lays down his life
For his beloved

I left his arms empty and tied outstretched until he died
I left his arms empty and tied outstretched until he died

Here I'm alive
And I don't have the right
He gave me the right
Costing him his life
New mercy's in the morning

I believe! what if I believe you now
Could it ever change this

I believe! what if I believe you now
Could it ever change this



Behind the Song:
6-5-08
Our most loyal captain that we put in charge of a thousand men was replaced today. He will be greatly missed. He was the strongest, most loving, selfless and courageous man any of us had ever known and his wife was a wonderful woman. The commander loved her desperately. She was his life, but she had come from a very dark past and had been hurt so much that she was never able to fully trust him. One day the captain left to go on a mission. His wife was so sure he was meeting another woman that she followed him. He settled into his hiding spot and after a moment of silence, she appeared before him with tears streaming down her face. “I know you are meeting another woman!” She screamed, “Where is she?!! I hate you! You lie to me all the time! I hope you die out here! I know you have had an affair, so guess what? I have had an affair too! I never want to see you again!” He was horrified and tried to quiet her, but it was too late. She began to flee and was nearly out of the captain’s sight when a Dread Army soldier appeared and seized her. The soldier threw her to the ground and as she lay there with a gun pointed at her, she realized that her husband wasn’t meeting anyone. Remorse overwhelmed her just as she heard rapidly approaching footsteps and then her husband’s voice shout, “Let her go!” Take me, but let her go!” The soldier looked at our captain, scanned his uniform, and fear flashed across his face. He recognized him and put the gun closer to the woman, shouting, “Don’t come any closer!” The Passerby Army captain stopped and spoke softly. “Please, take me, but let her go. My life in exchange for hers. Please.” The soldier asked in disbelief. “But you are a captain! Why would you die for this woman?” The man looked at his wife and said with tears flowing down his face, “Because I love her more than my own life.” The Dread Army soldier threw back his head and laughed. “Woman, Get out of here!!” the he commanded. When she walked far enough away for the soldier to be satisfied, she turned and saw her husband killed in her place. For the first time in her life, she knew that she was loved. Her cold heart was melted and she wept for 7 days without eating. She got up and went before the Passerby Army and told them all that had happened, asking to be punished with justice. A Passerby Army soldier went and stood beside her to address his fellow troops. “Our captain loved us. He lived for this mission, but he would do anything this woman asked. He loved her enough to die for her, so he must have believed in her ability to do greater things than he himself did while he was here with us. She has already proven that she is just by her request to bring justice on herself. I say that we make her our new captain!” The crowd was in unison. “Long live our new captain!”

She is proving to be our best captain yet.
