Popped up this morning just a little off center
God fearing world, I'm so afraid to enter
Haven't decided,
Haven't decided what to do
Looking back, looking over my shoulder
Still agnostic, every day it gets older
Haven't decided,
Haven't decided what to do
Holy books, so many flaws no answers
Believe in him, or fear him like a cancer
Haven't decided,
Haven't decided what to do
Bible banging, slanging Jesus at my door
Hey son, this is something you can't afford

Haven't decided,
Haven't decided

(Chorus)
Oh, give me something to believe
So many down on their knees
It baffles me, baffles me
Oh, give me something to believe
So many down on their knees
It baffles me, baffles me

Popped up this morning like nipples in the winter
God fearing world, I'm so afraid to enter
Haven't decided,
Haven't decided what to do.
After life, after death uncertain
Choose your side before they're dropping the curtain
Haven't decided,
Haven't decided what to do.
Where do I go for my inspiration
Go with the flow, with the standing ovation
Haven't decided,
Haven't decided what to do.
Standing idle, waiting for doomsday
Damned if you do, damned if you don't say
Haven't decided,
Haven't decided.

Oh, Give me something to believe
So many down on their knees
It baffles me, baffles me
Oh, give me something to believe
So many down on their knees
It baffles me...

Learned my lesson from history
I'm not claiming to be Jesus Christ and company
I am needy, I'm a thief
I'm not claiming to have role model qualities
But here's a lesson,
Simplicity
From a poor boy who don't believe in destiny
Be good to one another, set yourself free
All the pieces they fall together.

Oh, give me something to believe
So many down on their knees
It baffles me, baffles me
Oh, give me something to believe
So many down on their knees
It baffles me...

    General CommentIt's true. The whole song. Well it's 2 in the morning. The meaning is probably like everyone's believe in everything and we have no clue what's right or wrong. It's actually really catchy.

    General CommentI think just the line "Holy books, so many flaws, no answers" pretty much sums up this song.

    The speaker is basically saying that he sees too many flaws in Christianity to put his faith in it, but like all of us, he still wants something to believe in.

    However, at the end, he suggests that, regardless of our beliefs, we should still be good to each other and give each other respect, which, in the end, is what all religions try to teach anyway.

    General CommentI find it amusing that a line like "Popped up this morning like nipples in the winter" made it into a song with such great meaning and substance.

    General CommentThis is a philosophical song. But its also so damn good! The opening riff is simple but amazing. And I love songs that make you think about both what the lyrics are trying to say and meaning of greater things in general.

    General Commenti'll quote this from Stubhy (Lead singer of LBC) -

    It's just my struggle with the hypocrisy of religion but needing some kind of explanation of existence. I wrote it 10+ years ago - it was one of the first songs I wrote by myself.
