"My Sacrifice" as written by Mark Tremonti and Scott Stapp....
Hello my friend we meet again
It's been a while, where should we begin
Feels like forever
Within my heart are memories
Of perfect love that you gave to me
Oh, I remember

When you are with me, I'm free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice

We've seen our share of ups and downs
Oh how quickly life can turn around
In an instant
It feels so good to reunite
Within yourself and within your mind
Let's find peace there

'Cause when you are with me, I'm free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice

I just want to say hello again
I just want to say hello again

When you are with me I'm free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
'Cause when you are with me I am free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice, My sacrifice

I just want to say hello again
I just want to say hello again

My sacrifice

    General CommentCom'mon guys...this one is not hard. Sometimes, the thing is right in front of you. I suspect that those of you that don't think this song is about a man and his relationship with Christ...well, you are not comfortable with your relationship with Christ. And that's okay...because we all struggle with it, heavan and earth, good and bad.

    But it is quite clear...

    General CommentAlright monkey is somewhat right and so is furtado but I think there is more to the song and the video. He is talking about himself and his relationship with God. The video seems is kind of like a modern Noah's Ark story...the flood, the animals and it seems as if him and possibly his family is the only ones being saved. Then when they are on the bus thats when they are on the "ark" The storms over they come out and see the sun shining and live happily ever after.

    General CommentCan i go back to EmoChik's comment for a minute, and say that previous comments are very off-topic. this site *is* about music (hence the "song" in the songmeanings) and not about religion. do you mind if we go back to the music part, and not bring our religious differences here?

    General Commentyou are implying that gays are immoral, pedophilistic perverts. being gay doesn't make you some kind of sexual degenerate. i am bisexual, and i don't want to molest children. btw, God loves me just as much, he doesn't care that i'm bi.

    General CommentEveryone who tries to find a ratrional meaning or system of life will ultimately fail and will live in despair, the "sickness unto death." Only Christian love can save humanity from itself, Dosteovsky says, but such love cannot be understood by humans.
    One thing this song could be about, just for the sake of argument, is the suspension of the ethical for the religious, to put it in Kierkegaard's terms. When Abraham led his son Isacc up to the mount to be sacrificed, he did something totally unethical and yet true to God, for God told him to do it. Creed could be talking about forsaking others and their views for a personal relationship with God. The only thing about this I don't like is the note of self-righteousness here. it seems that he pictures himself far above humanity, "above all others", but it is written, "There is none righteous, no, not one" (Romans 3:10), and "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23). Bring yourself back down to earth and follow Jesus' example here.
