Lewis said there plainly seems to be
Moral standards in humanity
And this all makes perfect sense to me
Except we can't keep them can we

We are all guilty
Not being all we should be
Look at your own self and see

His voice cut through the war in my head
Screaming something I could understand
And somehow we knew me when He said

Is there anyone who's desperate
For anything more than this
I'm the anyone who's desperate
For anything more than this

We are all guilty
Not being all we should be
Look at your own self and see
We are all guilty
I am so guilty

Nobody move
I want that person to hear me
Yes, I'm talking to you
If you don't believe then
Lift up your arms
Open your hands
Receive
I’m free
I’m free

    General CommentThis song to me means all of us have sinned and come short of the glory of God romans 3:23 plain and simple It means that this day in age there are moral standars set for christains but we don't follow them and we're all guilty of falling into the worlds standards instead of taking a stand we've become thermometer christains instead of thermastats we conform to whats around instead of changing it!

    General CommentThis song pretty much just shows that we are all guilty of not being the best Christians we can be.

    "His voice cut through the war in my head
    Screaming something I could understand
    And somehow we knew me when He said

    Is there anyone who's desperate
    For anything more than this"

    This verse shows that God's voice can penetrate through you wrongs and find you. God can pull you away from your sins and confusion and help make things clear to you.

    "Lift up your arms
    Open your hands
    Receive
    I’m free"

    This verse is telling people who aren't sure about their feelings towards God to just take a chance and lift up your arms to God. He will find you and free you from the confusion of this world.

    General Commentguess il attempt the non-christian way, being that myself.
    the song could be about being guilty of not living our lives as much as we should. Though the he that she refers to is most likely God

    My InterpretationGuilty is about how we are all guilty in some way.

    "We are all guilty
    Not being all we should be
    Look at your own self and see." = We're all guilty and even if you try to hide it, it won't go away. Look at yourself in the mirror and see it.

    "
    His voice cut through the war in my head
    Screaming something I could understand
    And somehow we knew me when He said

    Is there anyone who's desperate
    For anything more than this
    I'm the anyone who's desperate
    For anything more than this." = Lacey is desperate for God's Love, It's like a teacher giving away a toy and asking who wants it, and Lacey is the first one to raise her hand because she really wants the toy. This is equivalent to these lyrics.


    "Nobody move
    I want that person to hear me
    Yes, I'm talking to you
    If you don't believe then
    Lift up your arms
    Open your hands
    Receive
    I’m free
    I’m free." = "If you don't believe, come with me, and pray I will pray for you." basically what Lacey is saying to anyone who is struggling. "Open your hands with me and receive His love, If you do then you will be FREE."
