"I Sit I Watch I Wait" as written by and Richard Allen Crook Alicja Anna Trout....


The chlid wil die you will wait to see
Be seated the gold is ripe for your retrieve
The stars, the sky, it's way too much for me
I sit and wait for what was once believed

I sit
I watch
I wait

A crown of thorns was put upon his head
His blood as it dripped down his neck
The nails of sand were nailed into his hands
His pain was beautiful to every child and man


I sit
I watch
I wait


The blood inside of me.

    General CommentThere seems to be a religious theme in this so I tend to interpret it as a description of the crucifixion and the resurrection of Christ and it being written from the perspective of a hardcore Christian who believes the end of the world as described in the Book of Revelations is near.

    Doomsayers basically... watching for the signs of the Rapture and waiting for the Apocalypse.


    "The child will die you will wait to see"

    - reference to the antichrist?

    "Be seated the gold is ripe for your retrieve"

    - Heaven is paved with gold. If you wait patiently, you will be rewarded with your acceptance into the Kingdom of God.

    "The stars, the sky, it's way too much for me"

    - Scientific theories or even just the unknown in regard to the Universe's creation is too difficult for me to accept or fathom so I fear it.

    "I sit and wait for what was once believed"

    - I therefore cling to what makes me feel safe and has been an ongoing established belief for centuries.

    "I sit
    I watch
    I wait"

    - The end of the world is coming and I'm watching for signs as described in Revelations.


    "A crown of thorns was put upon his head
    His blood (ran black) as it dripped down his neck
    The nails of sand were nailed into his hands
    His pain was beautiful to every child and man"

    - Describes the crucifixion. "Sand" could be representing time. His pain was beautiful to every child and man because it absolved them of their sins and allowed them to ask for forgiveness in the eyes of God. That's why it's said that Jesus died for our sins.

    Obviously this isn't a pro-religion song, but IDK if it's anti either. I just think it's describing someone who does believe and is possibly preaching and passing on his/her belief system to a child.

    Could be about teaching religion in schools ("be seated") which I think was a big issue at the time.
