"New Worship" as written by and Louis Knox Barlow....
There's a lie we've been living through
Think you're all alone, it's not quite true
No one cares, 'cause no one should
Everything you see was meant to be misunderstood
Safe & sound, so safe & sound
Move your body back and forth and round & round
And all my friends are killing me, all my friends are killing me
All my friends are killing me; I think I'm a genius

    My InterpretationThis song perfectly describes at least for me, how it felt to grow up in a particularly dogmatic religion.

    "There's a lie we've been living through / Think you're all alone, it's not quite true"
    This to me means religion repels the material world at face value, and there's a god always looking over your shoulder.

    "No one cares 'cause no one should / Everything you see was meant to be misunderstood"
    Pay no mind to things as they appear at face value. The only interpretation of life that matters is via religious dogma which explains everything.

    "Safe & sound, so safe & sound / Move your body back and forth and round & round"
    You're free to roam as long as it's within the walls of religious boundaries.

    "All my friends are killing me / And all my friends are killing me"
    Don't give in to peer pressure, your friends will try to influence you toward secular ways but keep your religious faith above all else.

    This might be my favorite Sebadoh song. Great lyrics, great music texture for lo-fi, and great build up of intensity toward the end.
