We're the scallywags of Archer street, we don't know when to quit,
We go to shows, we sing out loud, we scuttle every pit,
But when it comes to praising God we always bow our knee,
We go to him, we sing out loud, it's him that made us free,

From the depths of shiol to the heart of shalom
We will stand strong together we will never be alone,
Fill our cups full of courage, may our face hit the floor,
When we are at our lowest point we stand at heaven's door.

The line is drawn our minds are set, we now know where we stand,
It's a brotherhood of men that stood, we follow the fathers plan,
The faith that lies within our hearts doesn't come from the halls of a church,
It's not about religion, its about a friend, and it's him that gave us worth.

    General CommentThis song, for the most part, is pretty self-explainitory. It's about how you don't have to fit into some clean, neat, proper Christian mold to actualy be a Christian. "We're the scallywags..." That whole testifies to that. It's also about how Christianity is not a religion. It is also not legalism. It's about a relationship with Jesus Christ. "It's about a friend...". So yeah, good stuff...
