I patiently wait for my turn
While you fill the gaps with a bold empathic love.
Hey... is it coming over you?
Hey there... we should come together, wait on something new.

And christ alive! Am I dilating
My inhibitions soon dissipating
Can we afford to stay this way forever and forever.. amen.

This release inside of me
Is like my heaven calling
Endless possibilities
Are my defences falling down.

And all the while the strobing flicker
Of fireworks I'm peaking quicker
Than I ever have or ever will again.

Cut to pieces
Your friend in jesus
Pledge allegiance
And all's forgiven.

    i patiently wait for my turn
    while you fill the gaps with a bold empathic love
    hey, is it coming over you?
    hey there, we should come together & wait on something new

    and christ alive! am i dilating
    my inhibitions soon dissipating
    can we afford to stay this way forever & forever amen

    this release inside of me
    is like my heaven calling
    endless possibilities
    are my defences falling down?

    and all the while the strobing flickers
    of fireworks i'm peaking quicker
    than i ever have or will again, or ever will again

    cut to pieces, your friend in jesus
    hey, is it coming over you?
    pledge allegiance and all's forgiven
    hey there, we should come together & wait on something new

    General Commenti think this song is symbolic/metaphorics of few things

    1) it's about abandonning a religion, one the writer's been "devoted" to for some time, and he finally sees there's more out there, better for him

    2) about betraying religion - its values, morals, doctrine, etc - through sex
    "Is it coming over you?... we should come together... my inhibitions soon dissipating... this release inside of me... i'm peaking quicker"


    this tho, is most definitely about abandonding religion(see last stanza of song), veiled thourgh sexual connotation

    General Commenti think the "pledge allegiance and all's forgiven" bit is sorta sarcastic, it's definately about abandoning religion, there's a lot of comment towards it throughout the whole album

    General CommentDefinitely about a religious experience rivaling that of a drug binge. Both are equally bad, in my opinion. Both will numb your mind and keep you from thinking for yourself. Go chase down your preacher / dealer and get more of what you need (see You Can't Keep a Bad Man Down). This is definitely a concept album. The small fact that the words "clogging" and "stall" are in a few of the songs make it so. The album as a whole, for me, is about how everyone is sedated and numb in different ways while life is happening around us for the few who aren't. Then we die. But we stay in "position" and "asleep" (see Ornament / The Last Wrongs). I've learned alot from this album but I still can't seem to get my lazy butt up from this computer.
