"Seven Days" as written by and Mullin/keenan....
Over time mistakes were few but I believe they're mine
Faded mind youth was old and the years were so unkind
I'm the one I face the change I know that stands before me
Believe in me cause I damn sure don't believe in you

I cannot deny myself my anger and my pride
I cannot deny another lie
Waiting to find another spike right through my hand
Hope I'm killed before I die

World's divide, long ago the memory's still inside
Chances shine, seven days our fears become entwined
Seasons change our time is gone our souls have grown much colder

Believe in me cause I damn sure don't believe in you

"Never again" are words that echo in my mind
Leaving still holds back the tide
Crucified with lies my blood turns into wine
Take a sip before I die

I cannot deny myself my anger and my pride
I cannot deny another lie
Waiting to find another spike right through my hand
I hope I'm killed before I die

Oh, before I

    General CommentIt seems to be written in Jesus\'s point of view of the mistakes he made - dying for man. \"\"never again\" are the words that echo in my mind\" . Man is a pety, selfish, selfdestructive, and untrustworthy creature \"believe in me cause I damn sure don\'t believe in you\"

    General Comment/\ that makes sense. However on a personal note, the first verse is very ambigious to anyone, an I always think about my own life and looking back on the last 10 years..18 - 28 years old..what i've done, and where i've been.

    General CommentOver time mistakes were few but I believe they're mine (Nothing bad has happened, but I feel guilty anyway)
    Faded mind youth was old and the years were so unkind (someone who's more mature than others? Or perhaps simply a feeling of time passing one by.)
    I'm the one I face the change I know that stands before me (I know what I have to do)
    Believe in me cause I damn sure dont believe in you (I'm your saviour even if you don't want or deserve it)

    I'm not sure how this fits into the rest of the song, but it might help anyone else who wants to try.

    General CommentYeah, I think of Christ too, mostly because of the mention of spikes through hands and blood turning to wine.

    I think it looks at Christ as more of a person rather than a religious figure. His thoughts about having to die for all of mankind even though he doesn't want to and they don't deserve it. His struggle to be perfect, to deny himself feelings that are considered sinful - such as anger and pride.

    On another note, this song kicks ass. Easily my favorite off the amazing album, along with Albatross and Pearls Before Swine. I love the lyrics of the second chorus.
