"Sermon" as written by Stevie Benton, Jason Jones, Michael Luce and C.j. Pierce....
Where was god
When I needed a friend
Where was god
When I came to an end
Where was god
When I lost my mind
Where was god
When I couldn't find

Don't want to be up or down

Where was love
When I felt like hate
Where was hate
When I felt like love
Where were you
When you said you'd be there
Where was the fear
When I said I was scared

Tell me what you believe
I'll tell you
What you should see
'Cause I don't know
Who to trust
My heart is filled with disgust

I can't take this

Ladies and gentlemen
May I have your attention
Are you ready for the joke
Are you ready for the
Great deception

    General CommentWow...nobody's commented this in a long time.
    It's an amazing song.
    It's kind of...nostalgic...only in a bad way, to read the comments from right after Dave died.
    I remember hearing different rumours and not knowing if it was true...
    what is now going on five years ago.
    Drowning Pool SUCKS and is NOTHING without him.
    R.I.P.

    My InterpretationIt's saying, "If 'God' is so real, why isn't he there when people need a friend or a way to find happiness?" which that would mean that God is fake.

    General CommentHe is questioning religion, as many people are. He offers to help people to see the other side of religion. "Are you ready for the joke/great deception?" Shows that he thinks religion is a big joke... a farce... a great
    deception. He offers a very good point.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song of theirs.

    For those of you who are yet to be informed, Drowning Pools' vocalist Dave Williams passed away 8.14.02. It's a tradgedy, and I, along with so many others are saddened and shocked by this.

    General Commentthis is a great song and at the very end of the song there is something in reverse if you play it backwards it says "ladies and gentlemen tell me what you believe" and dave's death is truly a tragedy
