What if all we were told
Wasn't what it's all about?
Would it be earth shattering our lives filled without?
Sentiment points to faith and a reason to believe
Rest assured without detail, we follow never lead

There were giants, standing over all
On their shoulders, we have strayed for too long
Giants, giants giants
We have strayed for too long

Ideals deemed
Written in stone a long time ago
Who were they to question?
Who were they to know?
In their stride the cracks grow wide
Foundations shift and moan
Ideas now conventional
Once never known

They were giants, standing over all
On these shoulders, we have stayed for too long
Giants, giants giants
We have strayed for too long
Giants, giants, giants
We have strayed for too long

Too long, too long...

They were giants, standing over all
On these shoulders, we have stayed for too long
Giants, giants giants
We have strayed for too long
Giants, giants, giants
We have strayed for too long

Too long, too long...

    General CommentI saw this song as atheistic. We, being humanity, have strayed too long on the shoulder's of giants, or Gods and religion.

    There is emphasis on the word "strayed." Strayed implies that you're looking around, searching for something. What the Planet Smashers seem to be saying in my eyes is that religion offers nothing. We truly can't find any solace in religion, but only humanities' own accomplishments. This is supported with the lines:

    "Sentiment points to faith and a reason to believe
    Rest assured without detail, we follow never lead"

    Humanity is naturally immature and cannot fathom life without an afterlife and an all knowing creator. We never put faith in humanity, but rather fictional Gods.

    That's just my two cents.
