they rest on the coast and the tide is impending

we pull at the motionless and static
but the torrent has crowned their heads.
it fills their ears and it makes them ill.

they do not struggle at all
this will speak of the end, and will not prove false

it is time to move on with the weapons of faith and love
synchronize your steps to the sound of guns.
this world is damned to hell and it's a revelation.
and this is a shallow grave, and it's on the highest ride.

We stand on its highest crest
I'll set myself on fire come on, watch me burn.
poisoned now enough to kill ten hundred men
the harvester's mouth has not gone dry.

    General CommentI think this is about the prophet Joel's prediction of the destruction of Israel by God. only here, Cory is comparing Israel to all who are unfaithful to God, and will share in the destruction. there is even a scripture reference to Joel 3:13-16 at the end of the song.

    General Commentaccessible christianity; they're not shoving jesus--or even joel--down your throat like a *cough*under*cough*oath*cough christian band. The reason they're a indie-metal band and not a christian band. I broke with that trad a long time ago and they make scripture worth thinking about.
