"Misery Loves Its Company" as written by and Ronnie Winter....
Listen close as we wait for a sound to go

It's true, we are
We are destined to fail
It's true, we are
We are destined to fail

There is a problem here with our society
The absence of my tears is my sobriety
I have a growing fear and you're not helping me
Am I the only one who realizes, it's true?

Beat but I'm not broken
Guide me through with your hand
Lead with your words spoken
Show me, how to listen?

You're persecuting me, showing hypocrisy
I have a remedy for your insecurity
It's all the same, sadly, nobody works for free
Am I the only one who realizes, it's true?

Beat but I'm not broken
Guide me through with your hand
Lead with your words spoken
Show me, how to listen?

Let your light shine through me
Take this hate, I can't release
Help me make the blood see
Misery loves its company

When I dream, I see dawn
Turn into dusk, into dusk

Beat but I'm not broken
Guide me through with your hand
Lead with your words spoken
Show me, how to listen?

Let your light shine through me
Take this hate, I can't release
Help me make the blood see
Misery loves its company

It's true, we are
We are destined to fail
It's true, we are
We are destined to fail

    General Commentas far as I can tell, this band has a lot of Christian tendencies in their songs. I may be wrong but this is what I gather from their lyrics.

    This song i think is talking about people who put others down for believing in God

    The first two lines 'It's true, we are
    we are destined to fail' i think is saying that all men are sinners and that no one is perfect. the second verse is saying that society is blind and he's asking if he's the only one that can see that God is the right path to be taking in your life. The third paragraph is saying that he's been judged for his beliefs and he's taken a lot from people, (I agree with craigtom86, i think the line is "guide me through with your arm") and that God has guided him and shown him the right path. the next verse is directed toward non believers. the line 'Let your light shine through me' is asking God to let others see God and his wonders through him.'take this hate i can release' is just asking God to take away his hate and animosity towards others/past experiences away.

    To me this song SCREAMS Christian lyrics... I could be wrong but thats what I got out of it. Love the song. any one agree/disagree???

    General Commentyou're only helping me
    that line is wrong. Its you're not helping me, as far as I know. I have all the lyrics for this cd, and thats what it says on every other song lyric site I've checked out

    Got me through way around
    Is wrong also, I believe its 'guide me through with your arm' like craigtom86 mentioned

    Help me make the blood see
    uh... help me make the BLIND see...

    General CommentI don't know how much this matters, but on Ronnie Winter's myspace profile(yes, he has one) it says that he's a Christian where you would put your religion, so it's very well possible that he could have had some Christian influences in his lyrics, assuming he's the lyricist.

    General CommentYeah, every single band member is a Christian. There are a lot of bands that are Christians but not exactly Christian writters. Being a Christian myself, i do believe that this song is most deffinatly a song written about God, although it does not directly say God in it. Many verses in the Bible do say "Guide me through with your arm" and also something along the lines of helping me make the blind see. I think that the narrorator is having a personal struggle maybe with witnessing to ignrant non believers who put him down for his beliefs.

    General CommentThe intro is wrong, its: "Listen close, as the rain falls down to the ground"

    This song simply sums up the fact that mankind will be the cause of its own destruction. This has been a though for a long time, but the singer begs "Am I the only one who realizes its true"

    I am an atheist and as much as I try to deny the significant Biblical influence in the song, I cannot. It is obvious that the composer believes in God. However, I think that if you deconstruct this song and remove the Biblical implications... you have a truly strong meaning that can be appreciated by people of all beliefs.
