jaded eyes and stained glass windows.
martyred beliefs and empty lies.
monotony leaves only apathy.
fake emotions are as good as lies.

And the feelings that I get
when I walk through the door
are the kind that I abhor.
And the feelings that I show
are the feelings that you give.
a facade - the life you live.

It's a blue sunday, a blue sunday,
this is what have to say.
we sit in the same place
and do the same things.
back sunday when I talked to my best friend
thought those days would never end
now time cannot amend.
you haven't been since you were a kid
because everything has changed
and it's a blue sunday

empty feelings and ritual hearts
broken smiles and dreary souls.
left in a wake of weary songs
deadened men leave only deadened lives.

And the feelings that I get
when I walk through the door
are the kind that I abhor.
And the feelings that I show
are the feelings that you give.
a facade - the life you live.

it's all repetition, repressive repetition now

    General CommentThis song is about how dangerous tradition and ritual religious observances can be. They say, "monotony leaves only apathy", which shows that if everyone adheres to a certain standard of feelings and emotion then no one will care anymore; their emotions won't mean anything, and that is "as good as [lying]". When he enters places that worship or maintain those kind of rituals he gets feelings that "are the kind that [he abhors]." And so because of the depressive state that those traditions bring he labels it "Blue Sunday" where everyone does "the same things".
    And then to go further he says that those kinds of things actually lead to "dreary souls" and these "deadened men" will only lead "deadened lives".
