"Forgive Me" as written by Curtis James Jackson, C. Conlley, De Shaun D. Holton, B. Johnson, Larry Louis and D. Moore....
Concentrating on my knees
Cause they're no help to me
I find myself with simple questions
And simple needs

Bleeding forces gather me
Undo my weakness and appease
My sadness and guilt
Of what was done for me

I'll know what you are
The light in the dark
And I'll see what you are

Forgive me

And I'll take what you are
Over again
I'll need nothing more

Take me

Many voices speak
Many times I am weak
Many things escape
It's part of me
Many chances that I take
To kill you again
It should've been me
And Everyone

I'll know what you are
The light in the dark
And I'll see what you are

Forgive me

And I'll take what you are
Over again
I'll need nothing more

Take me

Take me
See who you are
Know who you are
See who you are
Take me

I'll know what you are
The light in the dark
And I'll see what you are

Forgive me

And I'll take what you are
Over again
I'll need nothing more

Take me

Forgive me

    General CommentTo me this song represents a persons struggle with themselves, for the fact that Jesus died for them and yet they keep messing up.

    In the first line it's stated "Concentrating on my knees cuz they're no help to me" I take it to mean that he's just sitting somewhere staring at his knees, wondering why he doesn't kneel down to pray more often or perhaps even at all.

    "I find myself with simple questions and simple needs" He feels he's not asking for much in his requests to God. Maybe a girl to love, a succesful musical career and who knows what else is in this guys heart and on his mind.

    And then it turns around to say "Bleeding forces gather me". 'Bleeding forces' could be taken to mean Jesus, so he might be saying Jesus gathers him, undoes his weakness, therefor making him a stronger person. If that's the case I wonder whether he meant a strong person on earth (a strength seen as worthy by worldly people) or in heaven (a strength seen as worthy by God). Then "undo my weakness and appease my sadness and guilt of what was done for me" Easily identifiable (to me anyway) as his sadness and guilt for Jesus having been put to death on the cross for his (and ours as well) sins. Also could be he senses God's forgiveness of his sins and so he is appeased of in his transgressions where he knows he has seriously fucked up.

    "I'll know what you are the light in the dark" Jesus is the light of the world, a very dark sick world.

    "and I'll see what you are Forgive me" He'll see Jesus as his Savior and ask God for forgiveness.

    "and I'll take what you are over again" I think this signifies each time he's messed up and then turned back to God and has been like "I did it again, I'm sorry, please forgive me and I'll stick close to you this time, just plese help me out of this problem" or whatever the case may be.

    "and I'll need nothing more Take me" He knows if he acceptes God totally and completely, he will need nothing more in his life. Asking God to take his heart and soul entirely so that he may net want or feel needy for something.

    "Many voices speak many times I am weak" The voices in my head! Yeah, that's it, the devil made me do it. No, really all the bad thoughts that start off as just a whisper and grow into something uncontrollable are the reason why we do stupid shit. We start dwelling on something we have no need to be thinking about and it festers and before we know it, out hearts and souls are wekened by the thoughts coming from our very minds. At least I know this happens to me.

    "many things escape it's a part of me" I don't know about this line, perhaps he means bad acts that he's done? I truly don't have much of an idea where the writer was going with this line.

    "Many chances that I take to kill you again" Each time he does something wrong, it's like he's crucifying Jesus over again.

    "It should have been me and everyone" It should have been us up on the cross. We're the ones that sin every single day.

    "Why don't you Take me" Asking for God to kill him maybe? Take him to heaven so he can leave this messed up place behind?

    It's a pretty good album you should go out and get it, if it's the type of music you listen to.
    I hope to see these guys in May, they're touring with Hinder and Theory Of A Deadman (who is a bad ass band, I've seen these guys and got to meet them, they're really nice people)
