Technically it is the second single, since Unbroken was the first one and to be included in the album as song number 2 of the tracklist.

I'm not even mad at these things, as I said, I see it as a release of unreleased songs from the vaults.

What the hell is the song about? I'm trying to find any sense or message in the lyrics..

from: https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/bonjovi/limitless.html

"Limitless"

Wake up, everybody wake up
Here we go, it's just another day
Another buzz, another beep
Scrub your face and brush your teeth
Out the door, into the street
I fell out of my sleep
A million different faces
All from different places
Swimming in the sea
Trying to keep your head above water
Trying to keep your head above water

On a night like this
One prayer, one wish
Step out off the edge
It's worth the risk
Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless

Wake up, everybody wake up
Morning comes, you do it all again
You know the song, it's on repeat
Found your shoes, can't find your feet
Grab your wallet and your keys
Better not forget to breathe
Sweat until you're soaking
Don't let them see you choking
A teardrop in the sea
Trying to keep your head above water
You're trying to keep your head above water

On a night like this
One prayer, one wish
Step out off the edge
It's worth the risk
Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless
Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless

Left to figure out
What it's all about
When the sun comes up
And the sun goes down
Is there something more
Than it was before
There's an open door
What are you waiting for

Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless

On a night like this
One prayer, one wish
Step out off the edge
It's worth the risk

On a night like this
One touch, one kiss
Step out off the edge
It's worth the risk
Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless
Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless

Can't rate via Tapatalk (probably can but too lazy to check) but it seems we all agree, this is a song that brings BJ fans together in... confusion? incredulity? resignation?

I still don't see why some people keep expecting different. Jon releases something that's far from BJ music but he thinks it's current, album and/or tour are a success (in his eyes), Jon keeps churning that type of music until a new trend comes up and he latches on. Everyday was another incredibly mediocre single, this is nothing new, at least it's forgettable and I'm not offended.

On second (and last) listen I realized that the bridge, and honestly the whole song, sounds like a parody we disgruntled fans would make of BJ lyrics and current state of affairs, so I'll give it a 4 for bringing a unexpected and unintended smile to my face

*Edited to correct the autocorrect... it was making less sense than Jon

No it isnt.
Its the first single and the song which presents the new album.
Unbroken was released as a promo song for a documentary and not as a single for promoting the new album.
Limitless is the second song coming from the album,yes,but its the first single to promote it.

Anyone else hear the odd split second silence after the word “sleep” in the sentence I fell out of my sleep, in first verse like it’s been stopped and then mixed up?

The verses are good. The rest could be better, add a solo and a nice ending to the song, and is a bit better. I think I may punch someone if someone says to the word "limitless" to me again.

At least is not Unbroken/10

Instead of it growing on me, I get more and more annoyed by the repetition of "limitless". It's off my limits!!!
