This place I pass is in my eyes.
The words you spoke, they blow away like leaves in time.
Your clarity, it starts to need.
And I am left with words I'm leaving underneath.

This is oceans in.
Races start again.
Cause you want everything.

I see beneath, I hear the breath.
I feel the deep and shallow dreams that try to pass.
But in this place, where echos stay
Is just the place where I will start to find escape.

Your world is crashing to the ground.
You're alone.

This is oceans in.
Races start again, you're alone.

(1 Corinthians 3:19)

    General CommentI think it's about someone who turned their back to God cuz when he said your words blow away like leaves in time he's saying that he's ignoring everything God/Jesus has said and now he's alone with no God.

    General CommentI agree with Fully Alive to some extent, but i think there's a deeper message there than that...

    I think it's more about a person who's trying to bring Jesus to people, in a certain place or area, but the words he spoke blow away like leaves in time, and you have to leave there with words you spoke, but left underneath because nobody wants to hear them....

    It makes sense, because he says that the people he's trying to convince, "want everything"

    "Cause you want everything."

    Most people choose money over God, and money is the root of all evil

    For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil
    - 1 Timothy 6:10 NIV

    No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.
    - Matthew 6:24 NIV

    It clearly defines the chorus:
    "Cause you want everything".

    People who love money cannot lose this life for the sake of God, God says to give to anyone who asks, which may be an extreme, but if everyone did that, nobody would have any needs...

    Your world is crashing to the ground.
    You're alone.

    This means that our lives our lost, and will surely come crashing down, if we dont have Jesus...for when trouble comes for those who have no guardian (Jesus) they cannot fight it, "they're alone".

    But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand
    - Matthew 7:26 NIV

    If you look at it in that aspect, the message is pretty clear...

    General CommentWhen I listen to this song...what it says to me...
    "This place I past is in my eyes." Speaking about the world and the things of the world that are so amazing and dazzling in your natural eyes.

    It speak to me about racing against the world, racing against yourself. Because I want to cling to the world, I want the things that seem so good. But when I touch the world, "The words you spoke blow away like leaves in time." God's words vanish from me because I can not hold onto him and the world at once.

    God wants me to give him everything that I have, my attentions, my desires, my heart.

    I see the world and I see everything it has to offer me on the surface and I see the waste that leaves behind as well, the way it desecrates people.

    I see all the dreams that I have, whether it's to own a mansion or to get closer to God, "My deep and shallow dreams."

    But in the place where God is, there is escape from the World, from it's destruction.

    However...If I keep hold to the world, my knowledge of the world, if I release God and cling to the clothing, the tv shows, the jewelry, the money, the sex, the drugs , the gossip, the celebrity worship, if I keep hold to what the world has to offer, sooner or later it will die within my fingers and it will all just be gone.

    So it's back to the race, against time, the race against myself to release All that I cling to...to make sure that all I hold to is God, and I let God have every piece of me, my attention, my love, my dedication, my life, my wishes, my hopes, my dreams, my desires. Because God, wants everything, he doesn't just want of me what the world has left, he wants all of me.

    I'm not quite sure that's how they meant the song when they wrote it, that is just how it's plays to me, that is what is relevant to me.

    It might also be about the world, making fools of us..using us, teasing us with dreams and drawing us in and sucking the life from us..heh but I'm just going off of what it means to me.
