"Necessary Bloodshed" as written by Mike Dunlap, Logan Lambert, Courtney Anderson, Mike Risinger and Jeff Santo....
Lord, what more than little good has Your death done
Lord, why did you give Your Son
Surely You did it for more than this

The world lives on in ignorance, filth, and arrogance
Man wreaks havoc on his inheritance
Man wreaks havoc on his inheritance

Surely You gave Your life
Surely You gave Your blood (Blood)
And Your flesh for more than this
Surely You gave Your life
Surely You gave Your blood (Blood)
And Your flesh for more than this

Lord, what more than little good has Your death done
Lord, why did you give Your Son
Surely You did it for more than this

Your covenant lies highly rejected
Sadly, it is seldomly accepted
Yes, just to me it means everything
But to most it means nothing

Surely You gave Your life
Surely You gave Your blood (Blood)
And Your flesh for more than this
Surely You gave Your life
Surely You gave Your blood (Blood)
And Your flesh for more than this
Surely You died for more than this

The reason is I
The reason is one
The reason is I
The reason is one

You'd suffer and die all over again
For one single person
And if that one should choose to reject You
That is the very essence of You
To give the chance to choose

    General CommentThe narrator is asking Elohim why He would give His Son (Christ Jesus) for us and then proceeds to lists some reasons. At the end he (narrator) tells us why, one of God's most important gifts: free will. God gave man freewill, and thus the choice to stay in sin or accept Jesus as savior.

    General Commentto me this song sends a message on how God gave His only son(jesus) to die for our sins so we can have eternal life and live sinless. but most of the human race doesnt appreciate this. the singer is saying that he must've gave his life for more than what we are doing to that him. all this rock supporting the devil. and people worshiping the devil. and not following gods will and turning their back on him. he didnt do that so he can be given the sholder. you know what i mean?
