"Him" as written by and Roland....
Well I took a little ride through the pouring rain
To think about the casualties of your exchange
Cause what you said ain't what you do
You know you live by the words you choose

[Chorus]
Was it him
Was it me
Were his lies easier than my truth to believe

Well I took a little walk through the driving rain
To catch my breath from your self-inflicted change
Cause what you said ain't what you do
I feel this storm wasn't playing with you

[Chorus: x2]

And the rain comes
Just like a bed of nails
And the rain comes
Just like summer in hell

[Chorus]

    General Commentthis song is about how ed felt about the dropping of ross childress. i believe that the rain he walked through and drove through in the song was symbolic of the torrent of emotions surrounding this time. at a time when he went to think by himself there was an emotional downpour; thus "rain"

    General CommentThis song could mean a lot of things. I kinda of got the idea that it was about Ross. And then I opened my mind a bit more and thought about it. Another impression I got was him thinking about, 'Why would she choose him over me? What does he do and say that's different from me?' "Were his lies easier than my truth to believe?" Meaning, he's only lying to look good to you.

    General Commenti'm not exactly sure what this song means. but, in a lot of their songs, i get the meaning of God in them. i've been looking and such, and i've been wondering, are they a christian band? does anyone know? if so, could you tell me? thanks.
