VNV Nation - Carry You Lyrics




Conceal your deepest worries
Confine your thoughts inside
The walls you built of damaged pride
The light in your eyes failing
Like you're adrift
Like night pretending to be day
These storms subside

Though the past, the unwanted memories, are holding onto you
All the power in the universe conspires to carry you
Truths you find through your adversities will defend you
As your powers and all your energies conspire to carry you

The adversary of your soul
The blackest thoughts
That try to poison you
These storms subside
Lay down your greatest burden
Relinquish that which has control of you
And let yourself through

Though the past, the unwanted memories, are holding onto you
All the power in the universe conspires to carry you
Truths you find through your adversities will defend you
As your powers and all your energies conspire to carry you

Though it seems the past and future look the same
Suffice to say that you're still here

Though the past, the unwanted memories, are holding onto you
All the power in the universe conspires to carry you
Truths you find through your adversities will defend you
As your powers and all your energies conspire to carry you

VNV Nation Carry You Comments
  1. Luke Manning

    So much blah blah about religion in what is clearly a song about self belief. Anyway, for me the much bigger question is: Why do they never play this live??? !!!

  2. chuck gardner

    we arer loosing freedom in the usa after hundreds of thousands men fought to save it

  3. chuck gardner

    i can,t sleep or stay focused in this hateful world

  4. No Body

    While all the suckers listened to Skrillex, we had VnV and Covenant :)

  5. Inquisitor Christopher

    I listened to this a lot when my ex broke up with me. He has BPD so a break up was never really a break up... He also has musical anhedonia, so music is nothing but noise to him...

  6. Uwe Tron

    Great work guys Thx

    "Carry You"

    Conceal your deepest worries
    Confine your thoughts inside
    The walls you built of damaged pride
    The light in your eyes failing
    Like you're adrift
    Like night pretending to be day
    These storms subside

    Though the past, the unwanted memories, are holding onto you
    All the power in the universe conspires to carry you
    Truths you find through your adversities will defend you
    As your powers and all your energies conspire to carry you

    The adversary of your soul
    The blackest thoughts
    That try to poison you
    These storms subside
    Lay down your greatest burden
    Relinquish that which has control of you
    And let yourself through

    Though the past, the unwanted memories, are holding onto you
    All the power in the universe conspires to carry you
    Truths you find through your adversities will defend you
    As your powers and all your energies conspire to carry you

    Though it seems the past and future look the same
    Suffice to say that you're still here

    Though the past, the unwanted memories, are holding onto you
    All the power in the universe conspires to carry you
    Truths you find through your adversities will defend you
    As your powers and all your energies conspire to carry you

  8. Felicia Palumbo

    This song gave me sooo much hope and redirected my life!! Thank you Ronan

  9. CUBE 75

    Cool stuff

  10. Rachael Mortician

    This song really resonates with me since I suffer from depression and it makes me feel hopeful about the future and not burdened by my past!

  11. Cace Tina

    Estás de nuevo a mi lado y el universo conspira para que seamos felices juntos.

  12. Robert Dean

    And Fight to. Keep IT

  13. Robert Dean

    Soon or Later. You have to. Pick a Side darkness or Light

  14. Margot Schmidt

    Klasse!!!😘

  15. Omega Graves

    I feel like Ronan Harris has a difficult time being a human. The stuff that he says falls on so many deaf ears, and goes unacknowledged.

    Patrick Mulvaney

    I saw him 2014 at "One Eyed Jacks" in New Orleans. The show was perfect. And, was able to chat with him at the after party, said the venue was awesome.

    Bentwire

    I should have elaborated. I love the band and the live sound. He gives every show every ounce of his energy. His voice really isn't what it used to be live. He cuts out often now and it's not just from the sound team, he likely ruined his vocal chords.

    VitrouoZos sevensence

    im not belong to this (curse/blessed) planet (matrix).I just training here...and yes is to hard for the soul to live in prison (body)

    Neska Lapicki

    he let me hug him, even though i was a sweaty hot mess. he let me film an interview for a wee tiny music magazine. i feel like he does human pretty well

    No Body

    @Bentwire i've seen him hoarse and seen him absolutely perfect. Sometimes it's the venue as well.

    2018 at the Wiltern in LA was definitely good.

  16. мария Муханова

    Скрывать ваше глубокое беспокойство
    Ограничьте свои мысли внутри
    Стены вы построили поврежденных гордость
    Свет в твоих глазах отсутствии
    Как вы течению
    Как и ночью делая вид, что день
    Эти бури стихают

    Хотя прошлое, нежелательные воспоминания, проводят на вас
    Вся сила во вселенной, вступает в сговор, чтобы отвести тебя
    Истины вы нашли через невзгоды будет защищать вас
    Как ваши силы и всю свою энергию в сговор с целью нести вас

    Противник вашей души
    Черные мысли
    Которые пытаются отравить вас
    Эти бури стихают
    Сложи наибольшее бремя
    Откажитесь от того, что имеет контроль над вами
    И пусть себе через

    Хотя прошлое, нежелательные воспоминания, проводят на вас
    Вся сила во вселенной, вступает в сговор, чтобы отвести тебя
    Истины вы нашли через невзгоды будет защищать вас
    Как ваши силы и всю свою энергию в сговор с целью нести вас

    Хотя кажется, что прошлое и будущее выглядят одинаково
    Достаточно сказать, что ты все еще здесь

    Хотя прошлое, нежелательные воспоминания, проводят на вас
    Вся сила во вселенной, вступает в сговор, чтобы отвести тебя
    Истины вы нашли через невзгоды будет защищать вас
    Как ваши силы и всю свою энергию в сговор с целью нести вас

  17. Felicia Palumbo

    Ronan yes and yes!

  18. blackcitroenlove

    Who's cutting onions in here? Stop cutting the onions...snif

    Patrick Mulvaney

    Sorry, My bad. My Soup is made now and I will stop cutting onions.

    G Wind Star River

    Seriously... some strooong onions!!!

  19. C GUEGANNO

    Danke !

  20. Jonathan Hole

    Pompous, but good

    Patrick Mulvaney

    @Jonathan Hole Pompous? Explain please.

    Mad Monty MN

    +Jonathan Hole Pompous? This song? Are you kidding?

    Patrick Mulvaney

    Have you listened to the Words?

  21. PEDAL GONG SHOW

    A very interessting song.i like it.

  22. Jon Barnhill

    Shut up aisha

  23. panselinos

    nice!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Julie Smith

    This song is one of my favourites from VNV Nation

  25. Thomas Shinji Demotucordis

    "The lyrics draw on philosophy, literature, art, politics and different forms of symbolism. VNV Nation does not advocate any ideology. It is a metaphor for expression."

    A Dixon

    @***** I don't think it's wise to put any form of religion onto VNV Nation's lyrics. Take them as they are, as they take their listeners. Just listen, and enjoy.

    Thomas Shinji Demotucordis

    Lol. i jist cppied and paste what is written on their website xD

    Patrick Mulvaney

    "V"ictory
    "N"ot
    "V"engence
    .

    blivvy

    I don't think it's right to DENY someone an interpretation of VNV lyrics that happens to match their faith. I also don't think it's right to try and FORCE that interpretation on someone who doesn't share your faith, though... so take that as you will.

  26. dkmcbigsley

    This song (and album) has been on my playlist for a while now, but tonight the lyrics jumped out @ me provided much needed inspiration. God or Buddha or Big Bang. This track can truly inspire one towards keeping on my& hope.

    A Dixon

    It doesn't matter if 'the energies' that carry you are God or your own - the truths you find will carry you. No greater symbolism than the one you provide.

    Katie Johnson

    @Aisha Clarke I totally agree! !

    Robert Persson

    +Katie Johnson good

  27. Gabriel Mazuca

    Well said HaadiyahCardinalis :-)

  28. HaadiyahCardinalis

    To all you people arguing about religion:  Ronan isn't trying to tell any of you what to believe or not believe.  Why are you so intent on trying to do it in his stead?  It's an uplifting song that's applicable to a huge range of people, religious or otherwise.  VNV Nation isn't about drawing lines.  It's about transcending them wherever possible.

    Omega Graves

    Exactly, dude.

    Altrunchen

    Fucking preach that shit.

    Patrick Mulvaney

    Here, Hear. VNV is about crossing those lines.

    Patrick Mulvaney

    That's because too many people think THEIR way is the only WAY.

  29. Xoltius

    spot on.

  30. ShadowCammando24

    Its a matter of opinion honestly, people should be allowed to believe in what they please, so long as it dose not lead to violance, unless the religion and or values points towards violance as an answer.

    Patrick Mulvaney

    VNV is about the Evolution Of Conscientiousness. The acceptance of the "Other"

  31. Saskia Briehl

    Ronan IS religious!

    Patrick Mulvaney

    VNV is about the Evolution Of Conscientiousness. The acceptance of the "Other"

  32. Michelle Malm

    Carry You. I've always thought they sing "holy cow" instead of "all the power"
    Whatever, these songs are so damn great

  33. Dante Vortex

    You win the internet. Thumbs up

  34. deskriptioteoria

    Fucking chills

  35. MuslimViking

    Ah, 'Victory not Vengeance'. Excuse me.

  36. MuslimViking

    No. Religion does not equal conflict: that's a very absolutist look.
    Also
    VNV Nation and Religion.
    Same sentence. Ronan would care less, as the only thing he is against is violence. Hence the group's name: "Victory Not Violence". Religion doesn't always equal violence, regardless of what alot of people think these days. People may equal violence. Politics may equal violence. To say that one thing does, when it has it's lighter side as well as it's darker side, is silly.

  37. Colin Reed

    Having faith in a god or whatever can be a peaceful thing. It's religion as a mass organization that is dangerous.

  38. Xeriphism

    antireligion = peace
    vnv nation = peace

    one day I hope your your ears will open your eyes!

    Duncan Ray

    Vaevictus anti-anything is conflict, not peace

  39. Some Mightyena

    it is comforting to keep religion out of music most of the time, especially with music such as Vnv Nation. the problem? Well, i should point you to the song Joy for that one.

  40. Andreas J. Mitchell

    -Victory Not Vengeance-

  41. The Deep Blue Water

    Hi LuLu. I guess what I was saying is that, to me, religion is at the root of so much intolerance and suffering, and VNV is all about peace and tolerance. You are right about Ronan, he is respectful, and I have a feeling he is religious to some degree.

  42. Jaughn Domen

    Religion = Peace.
    Man = Conflict
    Once I learn, Ill make my own futurepop. I dont always agree with his lyrics, but I always agree with the melody. God Bless 8-)

  43. murcielago lugosi

    So elegant...

  44. Daniel Travis Benavides

    I don't think that's the case with Ibrex78. Banter on youtube is hardly dangerous

  45. dezmodu

    aaaah... antidepressant in the form of sound waves.

  46. Daniel Travis Benavides

    I don't think it right to defend open-mindedness and spiritual liberty by attacking organized spirituality. I don't believe in sin, final judgement etc. Let's not slap "children" because we think their views are narrow minded.

  47. Daniel Travis Benavides

    I myself am a conglomerate; Christian, Hindu, Sikh, yet none of them. I don't believe the general christian view that God wrote any book per se, more inspired. But I also believe it possible for a person to achieve "God consciousness." In that conscious state if one were to write anything, would that not qualify as God written? In any case, you have to admire Ibrex78 for his/her unquestioning devotion. Don't you agree?

  48. Gilles Susant

    You think so? Really, again, let me precise God never wrote any book (in case you have missed that other comment of mine wich was voted up since I wrote it). Men did. And only men tries to tell you what you have to do. Not God.

  49. lbrex78

    that is the dumbest comment Ive seen someone make in a very long time. As per any religious book, you must believe in the book, in God and God's will. Without religion there can be no God.For God is atteched to religion.

  50. Alter Recke Hamburg

    vnv nation is more than music!

  51. NOT KREKLDEV

    Call me a cynical because I believe I am, but I see the world around me as realistically as I can attempt to do so. This means abandoning whatever previous dillusional faith I had dependant on my environment to help preserve an idea that will only carry me so far. I am a human being. There is no religion, no belief, that will change that, or determine what I do. Ideas may redefine who you are, like religion, but they don't determine what you do. VNV Nation makes me think about it all. It's good.

  52. Remi Link

    :3 q bonito...y ni se por q hablan de religion..XD

  53. Gilles Susant

    @NickBeaton92 God never wrote any book.

  54. Nick Beaton

    @Eroldir Well no, there is an inherent difference, there is following the word of god whether that be the Qur'an or Bible or whatever. There are organizations like the certain churches who use that to get money or power.

  55. Gilles Susant

    @NickBeaton92 But there is no difference between religion and organized religion. God doesn't care about religion. Men do!

  56. Andreas J. Mitchell

    Victory Not Vengeance

  57. Andy Odin Zöllmann

    das lied ist der hammer...was für meine pina die ich überalles liebe

  58. Nick Beaton

    @Eroldir Well the belief is religious, belief in a being that created everything, and certain morals and guidelines that go with said religion. However it is corrupted when it is lead by men.Basically the difference between organized religion and actual religion was my point.

  59. Gilles Susant

    @NickBeaton92 Well, I believe that no matter the name (God, Allah, Yahvé or else), we all have the same god anyway. What does religion have to do with that?

  60. Nick Beaton

    @Eroldir organized religion you mean, when man tries leads a religion, it ceases to be religion, no one can tell you the word of God, you need to find it yourself.

  61. Nick Beaton

    @warinspiredidiot Its all religious, even the creators of the music state their music has religious overtones.

  62. Gilles Susant

    @MentorOfMinos And have you ever considered the fact that God has nothing to do with this mind controlling human invention that is religion?

  63. MentorOfMinos

    @warinspiredidiot Why do you feel compelled to posit that human will and spirit are the ultimate forces in the universe and that there is no God? Isn't your judgmentalism just as unbecoming on the other foot?

  64. Nicholas Hurd

    It's not that it's religious, it's that they speak of truth. Their songs could be considered sermons, but there's no church here other than this entire existence we have to explore, experience and be part of.

  65. ValekHalfHeart

    @vincentpricesnephew i realize that this probably a minority view, but why does god need to involved in ANYthing?

  66. Juan Andres Hillmann Talavera

    God Bless Ronan for his talent

  67. Eric Hodkinson

    @warinspiredidiot i agree, why does God have to be involved with everything?

  68. Eric Hodkinson

    @warinspiredidiot THANK YOU FOR saying that! i feel the same way. not all all "power" is religious. power from believing in something so strongly; love, power, revenge, and just BEING alive. i never considered thier music to be religious either but they have become very political. i hate that as well

  69. xeeen0

    It is spiritual bliss in a audio package

  70. SyntheticBodyMusic

    This is not music. This is what the world is all about. This is feeling , i want to merge with , forever.
    Should i ever pass away , this music is my companion and escort to the eternity.
    Thank you VNV, you make my next world much easier.

  71. Ryan Wehr

    this song is like red bull. you hear it and i just feel alive!!!!

  72. Razzi

    @warinspiredidiot their beliefs are that which is outside of manmade religion, afterall that is what religion is to begin with, man made

  73. midairman

    @warinspiredidiot Religion is created. Higher powers (like you summarize) and transcendence have always been there. It depends upon the choice you make: choosing for concepts imposed by others or choosing your own path with your own morals. I'm not saying the latter is better. Still, personally, I could never go for a different view on life than my own.
    I think it's about humanity too and everything it comprises.

  74. The Deep Blue Water

    religion = conflict.
    vnv nation = peace.
    Never mention religion in the same sentence as vnv nation again please. It goes against everything Ronan has strived for.

  75. ChilliAndGold

    "though the past, the unwanted memories, are holding on to you"

    gosh i LOVE this song. it means so much to me! :O

  76. HerbaMaliciferum

    This song is most definitely about humanity, not religion.

  77. MechanizedFantasy

    @warinspiredidiot Except for the ones where they've explicitly kicked religion. I'll reference their album "futureperfect" here.

  78. ResidentNinja

    @MrPinkok "You can be religious without having a religion"
    Uhhhh no. You can be spiritual without religion, but... Being religious without having religion is like having cake without eating. It just doesn't work like that.
    I get what you're trying to say, but linguistically it's just not accurate.

  79. Ms BFu

    As I understand it, having grown up in Ireland and seeing the sectarian violence there, Ronan is deeply spiritual but very critical of religion. I think most of his musical writing reflects that.

  80. Marco Jäggli

    Spiritual, religious... the only difference is in perception :) Religion is not only what some curch says is.
    You can be religious without having a religion.

    The origin of the world "religion" probably came from "réligare" who means "make bonds between (community, humanity, god, etc.)", who becamed in the years "relies". I found the original acception of the term to be beautiful :)

  81. Marco Jäggli

    @warinspiredidiot if there is one power in the universe, a conscient power, you can name him/it what you want, but the easiest way begin by G... I think is the actual concept of religion and god who is lacking, but religion herself is not that bad.
    And the human spirit is part of this, there no need to escape from earth or from human to find a religious spirit.

    Religion is what "relies" between ourselves.

  82. teargirl23

    my favourite track from the album

  83. hellishsmile

    This song makes me cry.....to me this song means letting go of resentment.....I believe you have to be an individual of great power to be able to do that......not all of us can......oh, man, I'm gonna go and star crying now......

  84. hellishsmile

    @warinspiredidiot well said...

  85. solar464

    @zackk82 well, you're half right.

  86. Kyle Zack

    @solar464 you're an angry, angry lil fella aren't ya?

  87. solar464

    @zackk82 i got my point across. and last i checked, its my right to say whatever i want so... screw you...

  88. Kyle Zack

    @solar464 your comment would have been more meaningful had you just left out the unnecessary "fag" insert. :/

  89. Danboy-D

    I agree completely VnV Nation is all about Humanity. And what its about...

  90. kelpie394

    Go to heaven for the climate, hell for the company.
    -Samuel Clemens

  91. Sepp Wawrzyniak

    Many people think it's religious because Ronan is from Ireland,but not exactly.If you pay attention for the lyrics then you can see second real bottom.I'm not sure,but maby he discovered sense of the religion,or maby he never belived.That's off course only my personal opinion,but I'II take it as a atheistic sermon!Anaway,it's masterpiece!

  92. silversaint

    lawl

    heyz, devil can jam

  93. MrDragzen

    i touched myself.

  94. chintimin

    Eh. LIVE VNV... that's something. :)

  95. NeighbourElaK

    I love it!

  96. neuraxianfusion

    A back-door revolution, like a gay pride parade.

  97. PsychoAnalyticalDan

    I concur.

  98. shinjason

    i agree 100% ive never herd anything that grips me like their music. i cant put my finger on it.

  99. mannygrimm

    Thier songs are inspirational to me.
