How does it feel to find yourself playing for the wrong team with the stakes so high?
How does it feel to find yourself so blind to the sin your hiding deep inside?
Turn your back on the obvious facts and watch the city gnash and burn on you
Oblivious to your only way out and now the lifestyle's evidence too
Independence runs rampant while fire awaits for burning flesh overflowing like sets
Blind as the bats in the dark mindsets without hope of ever seeping through cracks
Like a fool
You're so proud of your arrogant mindset of lusts unspeakable, continue to drool
And now so content
Implement the tool

Your rainbow's a symbol
Of a smile on your face unforgettable
You look to the skies and smirk while your choice proves completely regrettable
Lust fills the sleepless nights
Thirty five and under the plight to sow invites
You'd better get to bead early...
Because the dawn's bringing light to melt the living penalty

And now you want to try to separate independence from your bonded state?

Worship your created self with unnatural debased states of mind for fates erased
With no excuse for ignorance 'cause His nature only proves His existence
Uncleanness assumes an image that's reflecting the faraway cry from creation
The signs of the times sign a contract (with fine print) providing your soul with destruction

And now you want to try to separate independence from your bonded state?

Isaiah 43:10-12

    General CommentThis is my favorite Project 86 song and no one has commented! It gives independence a negative meaning. It's talking about the fact that we all need God, and people who think they can get by independent from Him will be undone.
    There's a lot to be taken from this song, actually.

    General CommentYeah, lensflare youre right. Especially the line "You look to the skies and smirk while your choice proves completely regrettable" That to me just screams he thinks youve made the wrong decision if you're not a christian.

    General CommentIt's about homosexuality.

    "Turn your back on the obvious facts and watch the city gnash and burn on you"

    The city of Sodom.

    "now the lifestyle's evidence too"

    Speaking of a homosexual lifestyle.

    "You're so proud of your arrogant mindset of lusts unspeakable, continue to drool"

    Gay Pride day, the adoration of sexual lust (which happens in straight culture as well, mind you)

    "Your rainbow's a symbol"

    I think this one is pretty apparent.

    "And now you want to try to separate independence from your bonded state?"

    Wanting to seperate from the state they were created to be in.

    "Worship your created self with unnatural debased states of mind"

    Once again, the pride in an unnatural homosexual lifestyle.

    "Uncleanness assumes an image that's reflecting the faraway cry from creation"

    Humans were not created homosexual, which is a "faraway cry from creation".

    This is just me pointing out what I think the lyrics say, not an expression of my own views. I think it's pretty apparent it's about the desire of homosexuals to gain independence and worship their own lusts as good things.

    General CommentAs much as large portions of the Christian community would backpedal from the lyrics in this song, I still firmly stand behind them. God is against sin just as much as always and what is a sin never changes.
