Come away for evermore
We could place everyone on the floor
We could love them as our own
But we watch them from above all alone
All our lives, we put them out of sight
And out of mind
But it goes to the bone, so put your shoes back on.
We're going home. We're going.
Put away our dirty face.
Smile away tired eyes we replace.
What have we done?
Can we see?
Everyone watching as we recede.
We realize our faults and cover up our eyes.
Our moment's over.
To the sound of nervous glances
We will chance these final dances.

    General Comment'but we watch them from above all alone'
    its a surface relationship, above meaning from a distance.
    'put them out of sight and out of mind'
    we dontreally care all that much about our true relationship with them, we dont apply them to anything we normally think about

    'smile away tired eyes we replace'
    basically faking lots of things towards eachother, putting on a smile.
    just my view,

    General CommentIt's about how Christians are supposed to love everyone but end up just being really judgmental of everyone else and think they're better than everyone else.
    I have been guilty of this on more than one occasion.

    But yeah. I'm pretty sure that's what it means.
