I don't see differences in you and me
Except for the occasional harsh word
Step out on the stage
We got colors
We got shapes
All you really need is your brother, don't you

I don't know where it is I'm gonna go
Is it heaven
If it is come take me now
Leave it where you are
We are out here if you are
We are taking sticks and stones
And smashing our own cars

Now where did you see that
Do you really believe that
Everything is changing whether or not you see it
Something's gotta change
Be it face or be it name

Now where did you read that, man
You've got such sharp teeth, man
Everybody's thinking it
But no one wants to say it
Everybody's got it coming whether or not they want to
Change your face before we get to

I don't know where it is I'm gonna go
Is it heaven if it is
come get me now
Leave it where you are
We are out here if you are
We are taking bricks with God and smashing our own cars

Now where did you find us
Do you think it's ridiculous
That we keep talking and you keep laughing
When everything's got a time
Everyone too

Now where did you see that
Do you really believe that
What did you see there
Can you tell me 'bout that
Someone's gotta change
Be a face or be a name

Change your face or change your name

    General CommentI think this song is about repenting.

    "I don't see differences in you and me
    Except for the occasional harsh word
    Step out on the stage
    We got colors
    We got shapes
    All you really need is your brother, don't you"
    We're all really the same person, but we all have different beliefs, some people haven't expressed them (step out on the stage), some people haven't been heard. you need someone to help you (all you need is your brother)

    "I don't know where it is I'm gonna go
    Is it heaven
    If it is come take me now
    Leave it where you are
    We are out here if you are
    We are taking sticks and stones
    And smashing our own cars"
    He's got his own beliefs be he doesn't know if they're trust, doesn't fully believe, doesn't fully doubt, he's telling God we're out here, just waiting, we're constantly sinning, ruining our lives (We are taking sticks and stones And smashing our own cars)

    "Now where did you see that
    Do you really believe that
    Everything is changing whether or not you see it
    Something's gotta change
    Be it face or be it name"
    Everyone is bringing up new thoughts and ideas, new discoveries, everything's changing, people are still sinning, something has to change for the better, change your life, repent. "Be it face or be it name" is just like choosing which path you are going to take, whether to believe or to give up.

    "Now where did you read that, man
    You've got such sharp teeth, man
    Everybody's thinking it
    But no one wants to say it
    Everybody's got it coming whether or not they want to
    Change your face before we get to"
    Everyone will be judged, everyone will be tempted and laughed at

    "Change your face or change your name"
    The end is kind of a warning to decide and be prepared before your time comes and you aren't ready

    this song definately rocks I love the guitar and harmonica, i love his voice and passion...
