(Your tradition)
I?m getting so sick of creating this music to please you
The way it used to be is the very thing that blinds you.

That?s why you can?t see my God move
?Cause this is not then, and I?m not like you.

(Damnation)
Your excuse for good advice. Their mouths are wide, but you feed them lies
(Reputation)
You?re full of indecency. You are exactly the portrait they painted you to be.

Stereo Child

That?s why you can?t see my God move
?Cause this is not then, and I?m not like you.

You refuse to speak, and they?ll listen.

But I won?t be predicted.
I won?t be your stereo.
I won?t be predicted, never.

    General CommentI love the meaning behind this song. Especially as a Christian people seem to have a ton of preconceptions about how I will be around certain groups of people or how they think I will judge somebody else or whatever. I really connect with where Brandon, the lead singer of Dead Poetic, was coming from when he wrote this song. He has this to say about it...

    "We are dedicated to breaking peoples stereotypes of us. Stereotype has got to be one of the most useless ideas in existence. We all feel that we often prove people wrong with the way we act. We are all Christians - and a lot of people expect us to be judgmental, condemning, and all of the other stereotypes. But the truth is, we are people who just want to love and hang out with other people - regardless of what you believe, how you live, or what you do. Lets be friends first."

    I couldn't agree more with his whole feelings on that.

    General Commenti also agree!
    All those stupid sterotypes give christians bad names... and people are still giving life to those sterotypes. Screaming christians who shove everything down peoples throats and then judgmental ones... were supposed to be the body of Christ.. so why arent we showing the love that Jesus showed? Its sad really... and i agree with this song... it says i wont be predicted. Christians arent supposed to be predicatable... Jesus isnt predictable is he? I think not!

    General CommentIt's amazing how close this song applies to the way I feel about Christianity. Kudos to Dead Poetic.
