We The People Hear The Words
That You Are Saying
The Darkness In Our Hearts Remains
We Can Only Live So Long Without The Truth
And The Message You Portray Leaves Me Empty
We Have The Will To Fight
We Just Dont Know Whats Right
Our Hearts Are Crying Out
For Substance To Hold To
Can't You See That We Are Crying
While You're Screaming Our Hearts Are Dying
Shut Your Eyes Shut Your Eyes
Bliss From The Unknown, Hurt We Bear
I Want You To Know What I'm Going through
We Have The Will To Fight
We Just Don't Know What's Right

    General Commenti think this song is saying he beleives in god and everything and hears his good message but its leaving him empty because he has no "substance" to hold and have in other words he wants to see god and cannot...

    General Commenti think hes saying "I want you to know what im going through" to God as well because he doesnt want Him to blame or hate him for what he's going through he wants Him to understand that he loves Him believes in Him but he wants more direction from Him and to in some way have tangible proof of Him, and it could come across to Him that hes saying i dont believe in you prove it but thats not it at all.
