"Like Swimming Circles" as written by and Cory Brandan Putman....
I don't care what you said
I won't sink in the flood
But I listen to every noise
That you make and make sense of what you say
And I take note to every sound

We're not the same again

Don't you dare insinuate me

You don't care what you create
You can't swim in this flood
And you'll swallow with every wave
That comes by and take take what you need
You'll still swallow with every tide

We're not the same again

Don't you dare insinuate me

To hell with that!

    General CommentI think this one is for the people who say they can't be followers of Christ and still make this kind of music "I won't sink in this flood"..."Don't you dare insinuate me"

    General CommentThis makes perfect sense, and this is what this song means. I will analize the stanzas

    I don't care what you said
    I won't sink in the flood
    But I listen to every noise
    That you make and make sense of what you say
    And I take note to every sound

    Alot of critics were astounded that only a year after the second album OGTA Norma Jean quickly came out with Redeemer. Others, and myself included, did not know how this was going to live up to their LIFE-METAL Norma Jean sound. Cory is telling us, it doesn't matter if WE as the public thought the early release was going to be a flop. They are soldiers of Christ, and they do as he says. During OGTA, cory's vocals were a little rough and misunderstandable, some easily could not even follow it reading the lyrics directly. Alot of a talk was out and about it they DID listen to suggestions. Clearly in Redeemer, Cory's voice has matured so much from OGTA. It is such a clean scream. He took note of EVERY sound, the highs on this album, the bellows, the mids, beautifully crafted......................

    The next part, Cory is making the statement. Norma Jean is God-aw-inspired. Norma Jean will never be the same again as they were ANY album, one should not doubt Norma Jean. The movements are not them, but are God's calling for them. Cory yells it out so crisp to us, DONT YOU DARE INSINUATE HIM, insinuate meaning, don't ever doubt his calling. Don't ever think you know what this album SHOULD be like, or what it SHOULD be about. All the sly lies, and propaganda from media and/or people, I heard and read with my own eyes BEFORE this album was released, how awful it would be, how it isn't Norma Jean, and from all this I believed this album was going to be crap!!!!!! This is of it's OWN MUSICAL AGENDA and GENRE................




    You don't care what you create
    You can't swim in this flood
    And you'll swallow with every wave
    That comes by and take take what you need
    You'll still swallow with every tide

    As a satanic band sells out to satan, maybe more famous, more money, all the drugs, all the sex. These other bands could give a shit about you, or me. They could care less if their music edifies us in our walk of life, as long as the waves of money come pouring in. They will take everything they can, but never will they have TRUE happiness. They will bobble in depression, drug addiction, while they are on top of the world, but they really are the lowest pieces of scum, and THEY KNOW IT. They will go down with the ship, and if they die in sin, not accepting Christ, doing anything they want, and swallow as much hell on earth without killing themselves, they will ALWAYS want another breath of air (look at ozzy, man that reality show he got was great wasn't it? Someone wants as many breaths of freash air until time is up). In the end they will for sure be drowned in fire.




    We're not the same again

    Don't you dare insinuate me

    To hell with that!

    Now after much insulting, the album is here, nothing we were expecting!!!! To hell with that, I did get showed up MYSELF. I will never doubt Norma Jeans motives ever again, unless they start denouncing God. Which I know has happened to some Christian Rock bands. Evanescence anyone? I never see that day ever for Norma Jean, but money is the root of all evil and it IS A HUGE persuasion. I pray for you Norma Jean, to never loose sight of your calling. All songs are open to different meanings, but this song, if I could show this to Cory, he would tell me, this IS exactly, what this song means......

    General CommentNah, I think it's about the Hardcore Christian scene. Makes more sense. They're sick of the sell outs.

    General CommentIt's about the hardcore scene and musicians that will say or do anything for cash, also the future of Norma Jean never being the same. I'm sick of the sellouts, and i'm sick of the same old thing. DON'T YOU DARE INSINUATE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
