"If You Were Born Today (Song for Little Baby Jesus)" as written by and Al Sparhawk....
If you were born today We'd kill ya by age eight Never get the chance to say: Joy to the world and Peace on the earth Forgive them for they know not what they do Blessed are the meek and Blessed are the humble Blessed are the ninety and nine Deny the flesh Deny all that's evil Tonight you'll deny me thrice If you were born today We'd kill ya by age eight Never get the chance to say... Ooooo...

    General CommentI don't think you get the point.

    This song is from Low's "Christmas" EP and it's clearly referring to Jesus. It's speculating about what would happen if Jesus was born in our present day - NOT when he was really born (the time of Herod).

    I don't know why the age 8 was chosen.

    I think Low are speculating that this world has gotten harsher and meaner and Jesus wouldn't have survived in this day and age to fulfil His father's wishes.
    Of course, that kind of ignores God's sovereinty and control over the world..
