So many have long and gone
So many got left behind
But as time travels and Earth unravels
Church bells still chime
Planets still align as angels watch over

Meaning

While many people have passed away and lost track of their lives everything else doesn’t stop for them. People pray, but eventually you are the person who makes everything happen in your life, and not a supernatural force.

Note also the when he says left behind. This is a reference to the Left Behind series of Evangelical Christian novels which deal with the end-times where the Anti-Christ (named Nicolae Carpathia) will come to rule the planet and allow Satan’s reign to unfold.
