"Hand Grenade" as written by and Thomas Walter Macdonald Greig Nori....
I need your breath to stay alive
and make me feel this way
I need your rise to look inside
Watch how we collide...

One more time around
and I don't think I'll be allowed

Take me, make me break
Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades
Take me, make me break
Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades

Something's coming down
and I hope noone's around
when it falls

I find it hard to take some time
I feel like I could break
and I hope you hear my prayer tonight
Can you hear my cries?

One more time around
and I don't think I'll be allowed

Take me, make me break
Watch me get wicked like a hand grenade
Take me, make me break
Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades

Something's coming down
and I hope noone's around
when it falls

Something's coming down
and I hope noone's around
()

Hey you,
tell me what you want me to
Explode like a hand grenade
Hey man,
tell me what you me to say
I'll drop like a hand grenade

Take me, make me break
Watch me get wicked like a hand grenade
Take me, make me break
Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades

Take me, make me break
Watch me get wicked like a hand grenade
Take me, make me break
Watch me get wicked like a hand grenade
Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades

    General CommentYeah i agree this song is definitely beast and i think that this song is about evanglism.

    "I need your breath to stay alive"- I think this means he needs God
    "and make me feel this way"
    "I need your rise to look inside"- He needs God to help evaluate his decisions and live
    "Watch how we collide..."- I think he is saying with God 'they' can do a lot

    "One more time around"
    "and I don't think I'll be allowed"- If he waits to long he wont be able to have this chacne so he to take his chance

    "Take me, make me break"
    "Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades"
    "Take me, make me break"
    "Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades"- I think that he is saying that he wants God to take controll of him and he says he'll go crazy "get wicked" and spread what God wants him to "hand grenades"

    "Something's coming down"
    "and I hope noone's around"
    "when it falls"- He is saying that he hopes nobody is here or where 'something' is and think that Armageden is that 'something' and he wants everyone to know Christ so that they won't be left behind

    "I find it hard to take some time"-He is kinda stuggling
    "I feel like I could break"- He has a decision to make
    "and I hope you hear my prayer tonight"
    "Can you hear my cries?"-He is desperately asking God for help

    "Hey you,"
    "tell me what you want me to do"
    "Explode like a hand grenade"
    "Hey man,"
    "tell me what you me to say"- May have to do with singing
    "I'll drop like a hand grenade"-Saying that he wants to do God's Will and spread God's command 'grenade'

    "Take me, make me break"
    "Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades"
    "Take me, make me break"
    "Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades"- I think that he is saying that he wants God to take controll of him and he says he'll go crazy "get wicked" and spread what God wants him to "hand grenades"

    "Take me, make me break"
    "Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades"
    "Take me, make me break"
    "Watch me get wicked and drop like hand grenades"- I think that he is saying that he wants God to take controll of him and he says he'll go crazy "get wicked" and spread what God wants him to "hand grenades"

    Yeah so I think that this song is about a dedication to God and it really has a decent message so it is a good song in terms of like 'mom good' and anyway this a mad good song i love to solo to it is pretty beast

    General CommentSure it's about God? 'Cause I don't think so. I mean, the verse one and two make sense, but the chorus?! "Get wicked and drop like a handgrenade"? I think he's singing for a girl, ha! The boy looks for love, for a girl, who will change his world.

    The first verse
    "I need your breath to stay alive
    and make me feel this way
    I need your rise to look inside
    Watch how we collide..."

    He thinks he will be nobody without somebody, who'll be always close. Somebody, who'll make him feel like his life is meaningful, like he's a perfect person and a real man.

    "Take me, make me break
    Watch me get wicked like a hand grenade"

    He wants to belong to a girl that will get him high, who will help him to find something good inside him. He also needs a girl who'll make him just happy, crazy.

    "I find it hard to take some time
    I feel like I could break
    and I hope you hear my prayer tonight
    Can you hear my cries?"

    He doesn't want to be alone anymore. Maybe he thought he could be a single for the whole life, but then he felt like he "could break". So he prays: "God, help me to find a good girl, a good woman, who can be my wife, who can be the one and only. Of course, You're my God and nobody will never ever mean more to me than You, but You created man and woman, You want us to love each other, help me find somebody to love". The boy wonders if the girl he likes knows he prays for a woman of his life.

    Remember - there is nothing wrong when a man wants a woman. It's wrong if he doesn't want to marry her, if he doesn't want to be responsible - this and some other songs by TFK about wanting a girl doesn't say "let's make free love", they say "let's make love". They don't use the word "marriage", but they also don't deny it. God wants some of us to get married, have children etc, etc., there's nothing pervert about it ;).

    Maybe I understand it wrong, but love for God is not so sensual like this song, hehe.
