I'm the one who's got a religion
I'm the one I couldn't take my __
I'm the one who's got a religion
I'm the one I couldn't take my __
I'm the one who's got a religion
I'm the one I couldn't take my __
I'm the one who's got a religion
I'm the one I couldn't take my __
Hey, hey hey hey, Hey, hey hey hey
Hey, hey hey hey, Hey, hey hey hey

Are you gonna be ready to use it
If you hesitate they'll pursue it
Put the gun to the dome no question
Now the holy ghost in question
What about the banks when they say go
Standing at the top they can't let go
Standin´ can't take can't take that time
When I try sometime I can't stay high

Chorus
I'm the one
Who could have been injured
I'm the one
Who couldn't take my knife

Are you gonna be ready to use it
If you hesitate they'll pursue it
Good and evil came from above
Death peace eternal love
Bleed' at the gates and I can't come in
Courage that abates a life of sin
Sure that it holds and it holds no other
With the lies of the brave the kid don't matter


I'm the one who's got a religion
I'm the one I couldn't take my __
I'm the one who's got a religion
I'm the one I couldn't take my __


Hey hey hey, hey hey hey
Hey hey hey, hey hey hey


Yea I am the one yea


I'm the one who's got a religion
I´m the one I couldn't take my __


I'm the one who's got a religion
I'm the one I couldn't take my __
hey hey hey, hey hey hey,
hey hey hey , hey hey hey.

    General Commentwhen your born into religion, it doesn't matter if you agree with it or not. It almost seems as if religion is more important than you who can't decide for yourself. I guess you have to wait untill you get old enough to decide " With the lies of the brave the kid don't matter " that line shows religion is more powerful than the kid who its being pressured on.

    My InterpretationThis song to me sounds like it is about suicide from a religious perspective. Those who attempt it better be ready for what's coming, as in, if they fail, it's an issue that will not escape the attention of those around for suicide is deemed as a sin by Christianity. Gun to your dome is shooting yourself in the head, dome is a known slang word for head. Bleeding at the gates = not getting into heaven, however I think in this context instead of it being because the protagonist has been denied, it is because he is staying alive in order to 'abate [his] life of sin', because in Christianity, or at least Catholicism, you will be more likely to get into heaven sinning through life than killing yourself at the end. 'The lies of the brave' and 'the kid don't matter' line is I think saying how those who can bear to live can afford to enforce such rules, for they don't suffer like the protagonist who is a kid. Religious views are imposing the need to stay alive and not commit suicide, for fear of these religious repercussions. At least that's how this song makes sense to me.
