"Lotus" as written by and Snider Johnson....
There are no ghosts
Watching through your walls
So put the cross down
And there are no angels
Reading your thoughts
Keep your feet on this ground

[Chorus]
We getting scared yet?
The man in the blue suit's got God
Are we there yet?
The congregation's been sold off
They've been bought

What to do about tomorrow?
Please let it come, just let it come
What you gonna do about today, man?
It's right here staring you in the face

What a difference that would make
If we were finally awake

[Chorus]

You've gotta be out of your head!
Is it worth all the dead?
Do you like it?

Does the wife
Mind the touch
Of your reddened hand,
Or the money on your breath?
Does your balance turn her on
Regardless of the sin?

Blind your eyes watching sunbeams
You can't see this creeping pack of dogs
Blind your eyes watching sunbeams
The pure bred beasts wait licking their chops

    General CommentThis song is so awesome especially the interlude and,

    "Hide your eyes watchin' sunbeams
    You can't see this
    creepin' at the door"

    That part of the song just amazes me for some reason.

    This whole album just made me ecstatically happy when i first heard it and it still does :)

    General Commentthis song is amazing live. as for the meaning, i know it's not really like MTB to be political or anything, but it seems to me to be about president Bush (the man in the blue suit) and how he's always talking about God and the whole war. I've seen other places where the lyrics are "The man in the blue suits got God." But who knows, i could be totally wrong. it's a wonderful song no matter what it's about.

    General Commentit appears that it is a very political song. but mtb is trying to reason with everyone that is happy or at least complacent with the current standing of america.
    mtb sounds like they want to rock the country awake. are you getting scared yet? love the sarcasm. yet deathly serious.

    i also get a red animal war sound out of this song. raw is/was an indie band out of texas. at least the beginnings of this song is reminiscent to me.

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs I have ever heard. Minus The Bear seems to get better with every album...I can't wait to see what they produce next.

    General CommentPlease, mtb, please don't get all political and anti-Bush on me now! But I do think it's a very political song. He's singing about how we've been ignoring the current state of our world and the problems we're having now because we're focusing too much on the future. There are problems that need fixing now - these issues aren't going to go away just because we're ignoring them. This war is a religious war - we're trying to conver the whole world to Christianity by bombing it. And we're so quick to condem people in the Middle East because of their beliefs. I don't agree with the message behind this song. I love MTB and all, but I don't love the message behind this. But maybe I have it all wrong. Maybe it doesn't have anything to do with the war or the U.S. or christianity.
