"Trademark" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
I think it might just be alright
To leave what matters out of sight
Old habits die hard, holding on
Inevitable means it's never gone

Told myself what I need to hear
I think the point was very clear
I showed me what we missed since we
Slipped into inconsistency

[Chorus]
It seems if my ties with you get severed
I can't seem to hold a thing together
I just fall apart
'Cause that's my trademark

It's my, my trademark move
To turn my back on you
It's my, my trademark move
To realize I should improve
And sometime soon after that
You'll see me come crawling back

I'll kill the thing that turns me away
Amputate the arm that will disobey
Withdraw from everything that's hurting me
Until you finish your work in me

Told myself what I need to hear
I think the point was very clear
I showed me what we missed since we
Slipped into inconsistency

[Chorus]

It's my, my trademark move
To turn my back on you
It's my, my trademark move
To realize I should improve
And sometime soon after that
You'll see me come crawling back

It's my, my trademark move
To turn my back on you
It's my, my trademark move
To turn my back on you
It's my, my trademark move
To turn my back on you
It's my, my trademark move
To realize I should improve
And sometime soon after that
You'll see me come crawling back

    General CommentIt's about the cycle we as Christians can so easily get to, of running to and from God. Its like, we finally get close, then get scared and run away, then realize we need him more than we thought, and it repeats over and over. Good song, easy for me to relate to

    General CommentI'll kill the thing that turns me away
    amputate the arm that will disobey.


    that's actually a passage from the bible, i forget which one.
    one of the apostles said he never wanted to disobey the lord, and he'd cut off one of his arms if it did anything bad...

    ----------
    Not quite... the verse is Matthew 5:30 and it says if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away because it is better to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. One of the Apostles never threatened to cut off his arm if it did anything bad... =P

    General CommentThis song is a good example of Relient K's belief and music type. This song is probably confused by an unbeliever as a carnal or secular song, but really if you look close enough, it's about a spirital relation ship with God. Another example would be "Pressing On", most people think is just a song with no spirial message.

    I like Relient K because they cant take feelings and things like that, and communicate them in such a down-to-earth and easy to understand, way.
