[Originally by Pedro The Lion]

i can hear the church bells ringing
they pealed aloud your praise
the members faces were smiling
with their hands out stretched to shake
it's true they did not move me
my heart was hard and tired
their perfect fire annoyed me
i could not find you anywhere

could someone please tell me the story
of sinners ransomed from the fall
i still have never seen you
and some days i don't love you at all

the devoted were wearing bracelets
to remind them why they came
some concrete motivation
when the abstract could not do the same
but if all that's left is duty
i'm falling on my sword
at least then i would not serve
an unseen distant lord

someone please tell me the story
of sinners ransomed from the fall
i still have never seen you
and some days i don't love you at all

if this is only a test
i hope that i'm passing
cause i'm losing steam
and i still want to trust you

peace be still
peace be still
peace be still
peace...be...still

    General CommentYou do realize that David Bazan (of Pedro the Lion) who wrote this song is a Christian, right?

    General CommentI don't if Thrice plays this, but I am sure that David Bazan (Pedro the Lion) wrote it and it's on his album "It's Hard to Find a Friend."

    David Bazan wrote a "Christian" album or two. His wife left him in a really bad manner, and he's been writing music like this for some time now. He struggles, and that's what I love about his music.

    Listen to the album (maybe his best), "Control" and you'll figure out what I'm saying.

    Wishful thinking I guess. David Bazan is a Christian artist (meaning he indeed believes in God and Jesus Christ) and Dustin Kensrue of Thrice is a Christian. I know you'd like to think they're not, but they are indeed.
