Who’s the liar, who saved who
Judgment was the choice you made (a choice you made)
And pews aren’t quite as inviting as you portray
Try as you may but, you’re a wreck and respect
Could be something you can look into finding,
Yourself before, you find me face down thirty miles on September seventh
Still searching for the reason, (and that reason is you, and that reason is you)
(Always standing tall), back so far from the wall
(Real Men) will be found with their face flat on the ground
This is just, short of a disaster,
Rocks don’t take to kindly straight to my chest
Hand motionless, the grasp is gone
Its people like you that turn kids away from God (its people like you)(4x)

I’m not afraid at all
I know it’s hard to hear
You want me scared, but some want you dead

    General CommentI love this song.
    I don't really know the exact meaning of the lyrics.
    But to me, it reminds me of someone who talks about God and tries to, like, scare people. I can't explain it.
    It's someone who tries so hard to get kids and people to be religious. Like those people who are like "Oh my gosh, don't do that or you'll die. God will hate you forever, he'll never forgive you." They think they're doing something good, but they're scaring the kids and "turning them away from God".
    Again, I really don't know because I suck at interpreting lyrics but this is what it means to me.

    I just read over the lyrics and I think I'm wrong, ha.
    Maybe I'm just stupid. (:

    Anyway, this is an amazing song.

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it is religious,
    & how bad influences are now days.

    "And pews aren’t quite as inviting as you portray"
    "Its people like you that turn kids away from God"
    i think it's talking about how believing in God is a sacrifice.
    chosing to live your life according to the bible could only mean disaster.
    & much like the person before me, it is about how peoples lives are ruined because of religion.

    the thought of saying one wrong thing could possibly send you to hell is no less than frightening to many.

    "
    I’m not afraid at all
    I know it’s hard to hear
    You want me scared, but some want you dead"
    preists tend to use methods written in the bible to scare people into being "good to God",
    basicly i believe it is about a person that sees through all the shit portryed in church & realizes that God gave us life so that we could make CHOICES not JUDGEMENTS, & is saying not to be so cautious because with or without the priest preaching his teachings, only you can make your life worth living.
    fearing a book will only destroy you.
    & thus, this is why children would turn away from God, fearing that they will be punnished.

    General CommentI think this song is referring to the Christians or "so called Christians" that think they know all there is to know about God and feel that they have the right to look down and sit in judement on people that are struggling in their faith or in their walk with God. The clincher to my statements is when he sings...

    "Its people like you that turn kids away from God (its people like you)"...

    ...This directly addresses those people who are condemning and sitting in judgment of those who may be struggling or searching to find God. When Christians sit in judgment, it makes those that they are condemning want to turn away from that person and the God that they are serving because they have been discouraged and looked down on... This song can also be interpreted as a call to encourage and never discourage.

    General Commentthis song is about PEOPLE in the church who make judgements of other people and try to scare people into living a good life.

    this is not one of the typical "anti-church/anti-organized religion song." seriously, akissforjersey is above one of those songs. if i had a dollar for every crappy anti-government/anti-organized religion song i would be a millionaire.

    plus, their music is Amazing...see them live, you won't regret it.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful, their songs need to be read of hundreds of times. They have such a God given talent, i pray they get signed and can spread their message further. This, along with Oh, Infamous City, Faces, Devices, all sick nasty songs. LOVE THEM.
