I am the water, I am waves crashing onto you
I am the blank wave, I am the madness the lost, the dark, the heart, the cage, the rage
I am rejection, I am redemption
I am desire for obligation, I am forever, but I could be never if thats what you want
I am the desert, I am the oasis for strength, the weakness for arguments sake
I am rejection, I am redemption, I am desire for obligation, I am one step closer for you
Please tell me when you're through, because I may not be through with you
You're loss to sustain, but I will remain and prove to the....
This was the last (last) I ever took but would you take the time to look, or would you know?
Or would you know?
Or would you know?
Becuase I am the water, I am waves crashing onto you
You could pretend to be, but you will kill me when you're through.

    General Commenti think its funny how no one has responded to this song. anyone can see that its an awesome song.
    since i know further seems forevers backround i know what it means. it portrays the weakness and strength for so many people. it depicts ones faith and faith being the oxymoron it is.
    this song is great and well played just like all of there songs.

    General Commenti agree with small town poet and a part that really points that out to me is "i am rejection, i am redemption"

    General CommentI agree with everyone here. A few of the many parts that I belive really makes it obvious this is about faith. "I am one step closer for you." and "I am for ever, I could be never if thats what you want." That is exactly what faith is. It could be something you can hold onto forever or by free will you can decide to have no part of it.

    General CommentOk, so THIS song. Jason wrote again (most of the stuff on HTSAF is religiously connected) I think the song is Jesus Christ himself talking to someone, or people. Or just in general. Saying that he basically IS everything.
    "you could pretend to be, but you will kill me when you're through." We know he was killed. It can be about faith like everyone else said. But maybe its through Jesus Christs POV. Or what thinks about faith?
    "I am the oasis, the strength, the weakness for arguments sake" That line is like my favorite.. He'll be the weakness for arguments sake. Like 'i'd rather lose this battle, to not argue' Thats being the bigger person. This song = hotness.

    General CommentI love the apparent contradictions that Jason lists. It fits well with the CS Lewis' notion that God is where contradictions collide.
    Rejection - Redemption
    Desert - Oasis
    Forever - never

    It does fall on the border of process theology where God exists within time and changes. However, we can give Jason the benefit of the doubt in terms of what he meant.
