All the blood in their souls pour out, look for something in the dark
Blinded they find nothing another lust given in, another trust shut within
Listen to him speak so holy, father God, I'm saved
That's fall that matters let the rest burn in hell
Preach false, a sin is a sin, doesn't give you the right to condemn then to hell
they know their wrongs you don't have to tell them their faults
Once you were a sinner how would you like it if someone laughed at you because of your wrongs?
I'm not here to accept their sings but I'm here to show them love within
Listen to him speak so holy, Father God I'm saved
That's all that really matters let the rest burn in hell.
No matter how hard you try you can't convince me that you represent Christ
No more, I'm fed up with this... you've already killed too many souls
It's time you wake up and see the truth Christian, I stand no afraid of my beliefs
Learn to love your enemies, to open their eyes you must be willing to die
Look at your own wrongs before you look at someone else's
You want to save souls or put souls to death
Giving our savior a bad name, giving me a bad name
You're so wrong with your beliefs, sit in church every week, but never do you help the weak
This is time to take back what's ours, not to give the world what's ours
Don't you want to see everyone saved or just yourself with a river of blood on your hands?

    General Comment:What I think it means is, some Christians are too extreme and look down on people who don't believe in Christianity, when a true Christian should accept everyone and try to show them the "truth" (I'm athiest so I don't believe that) rather than condemning their enemy to hell, because you shouldn't want someone to go to hell. Wasn't this what Jesus did? Anyway this is just my opinion on the meaning of the song.

    General Comment:GhettoAstronaut, I'm really impressed with you. You didn't come in being all "christians suck! you're all wrong!" like most of other athiests on this site. You get an A+ for respect and for the song meaning. =D

    And whatsgrimace, that ridiculous is the single best weapon I can use against one of my friends. She is so deathly afraid of clowns it isn't funny.


    Ok yes it is. xD

    General Comment:Amazing song from an amazing album. I like playing this song to people who only know Underoath from "Reinventing Your Exit" and beyond. Scares them. :)

    General Comment:This song to me is about the overdramatic Christians, I guess I can say. There's a lot of them who look at you like "Oh my gosh!!! You don't 100% believe what I do! You're hellbound!" WRONG! This song to me is how some Christians take things too far and we should accept people as they are.

    General Comment:The first time i heard this song... my friend clicked to play ti on my comp, when i heard that laughing i was like "What the HELL are you lsitening too?!?!" then when she said "your music Kate! what the hell!"
    was pretty funny, awesome song though. i cant beleive how hard it is to find this cd... then it goes for 60$ + at least!!
    The part where it says "Learn to love your enemies" sounds pretty cool, but im still finding it hard to memorize all the lyrics, cause no doubt, they get kinda hard to understand sometimes... Really good song though, more people should get into what Underoath used to be, cause it's really different, and really good.

    pretty much about how people live by God and the false preachings, also wrongfully condemning people to hell for their "wrong" beliefs.

    &
    "Listen to him speak so holy, Father God I'm saved
    That's all that really matters let the rest burn in hell.
    No matter how hard you try you can't convince me that you represent Christ
    No more, I'm fed up with this... you've already killed too many souls
    It's time you wake up and see the truth Christian, I stand no afraid of my beliefs
    Learn to love your enemies, to open their eyes you must be willing to die
    Look at your own wrongs before you look at someone else's
    You want to save souls or put souls to death
    Giving our savior a bad name, giving me a bad name
    You're so wrong with your beliefs, sit in church every week, but never do you help the weak
    This is time to take back what's ours, not to give the world what's ours

    How many Christians can be WAY too literal,hypocrites, and uncaring when all People (Christian or not)
    should just help "the world" (people) weak or strong.....
