do you need me to shove your head underwater
just to make you drink?

i'm not mentioning any names, tyler
your ignorance has gone too far
your brain's full of static
your drugs have ruined a man

"drink the water of truth; no i'll drown in my pool of lies"

i'll never understand why you try so hard to disbelieve

you're not listening to me
i asked you a question
why you've taken it this far, i don't know
this will be your restraint
if you can still see me, close your eyes
and pretend i'm not really here

    General CommentRed pill? Blue pill? I LOVE the Matrix intro into this song!
    It sounds as if the singer's venting some righteous anger because this person, Tyler, still refuses to believe that drugs are screwing him up and that he can find truth in Christ.
    I like these lyrics because they're not sugar-coated. Straight forward and brick-in-the-face.

    General Commentyeah, this is about a guy (tyler) who stubbornly refuses to accept truth; that Jesus is the water of life. this Biblical metaphor is cleverly adapted for the song.
