For your futures sake,
I’ve got advice I’d advise you to take
Don’t keep betting,
“well, its gotta light me up sometime”
You lost your turn
“All I wanted to be was one of your children”
See how clean the water is where you are,
wash off your handcuffs
And know the hidden messages you hear,
they aren’t real.
You tricked your mind to feel.
“All I wanted to be was one of your children”
Are we even now? We are unrelated
If blood is thicker than water
Then you’ll drown quicker than we intended,
And you’ll know where you can find us in the end
So we can begin again.

    General CommentHmm. Thats not at all how I follow this song. Ready?


    This song is about realizing god doesnt exist. Its not about the new testiment, unless it is by saying its not true. Lemme explain.


    "For your futures sake...I've got some advice i'd advise you to take...dont keep betting well its gotta light me up sometime" --- that is refering to religion. You cant keep betting that its going to make you a better person or something by you attending. You lost your turn.

    "All I wanted to be was one of your children" one of the biggest give aways...because even though he realizes god doesn't exist he always wanted him to...he wanted to believe he would be one of his children...but he has come to terms with the fact that he cannot be a child to a unexisting father.


    Some other lines to support my theory.


    "Wash Off Your Handcuffs" Reference to religion/beliving in god. Being "tied down" to the religion.


    "Know the hidden messages you hear, they arent real, you tricked you mind to feel" --- BEST LINE EVER. That is in part the reason I myself am not religious. here they explain to you that "faith" is nothing more then you tricking your mind to feel something that isnt there. So you have purpose to your life. BRILLIANT LINE.




    "We are unrelated" -- meaning we are not gods children. Since god says we're all related, we're all from adam and eve.

    General CommentWhile I actually do agree with the Atheistic intentions of the song, for me it takes on a paternal meaning. I've molded the lyrics (as I think most great songs have the ability to be malleable) to include a mostly absent and perhaps negligent father. I haven't the time to elaborate, but I just wanted to introduce this idea.

    General CommentI just realized something about all the songs from on letting go. The remind me very much of Fight Club. There are too many examples of what I mean to list here, but I really think there might be a coralation. Think about it.
