"A Thread Of Light" as written by and Ryan Clark Don Clark....
These words are a weapon for the ones in pain
A fair fight for the children of a lesser name
We are the war against the sick and fatal fall of man
A hollow tip to the notion of a Godless stand
Quick to slam the gavel on a true solution
You let the fear become a stranglehold
Tear it all apart so you can render your own belief
You never listened to what you were told

Condemned
You built a wall, disbelief is all you left us
Reaction
Without a thought, your resolve is to reject us

You found your darkness stands on a thread of pinhole light
And all you wanted was perfection
You found your darkness stands on a thread of pinhole light
So all you are is contradiction

You buried the chance in a self-righteous glance
So your sons and your daughters were safe
But your imperfect path is a heart made of glass
And the world is a charming grenade

Condemned
You built a wall, disbelief is all you left us
Reaction
Without a thought, your resolve is to reject us

You found your darkness stands on a thread of pinhole light
And all you wanted was perfection
You found your darkness stands on a thread of pinhole light
So all you are is contradiction

    That bit reminds me of the state of many of the Churches in todays world. They want to 'find a solution' to the lack of belief problem, and so they 'render their own beliefs' to fit with todays standards. This has sickened me, as I have been to several Churches where the whole thing revolved around singing and chatting with eachother, which is good, but there was pretty much no sermon. And they never even mentioned hell, it was all about Jesus loves you no matter what, which although it is true, they didn't know that they should strive to live a better life. They were told that they were perfect as they are, which is one of the most Un-Christian things that can be said.

    My view of faith is obviously based on love, but, we are not to 'render our beliefs' so that others will like us. We will be despised, because we don't agree with many of the 'standards of today'. We should despise sexual immorality, we shouldn't change the laws to allow homosexuals to get married, or for people to get divorced for the incorrect reasons. And the punishments for doing so are made clear in Revelations, for it says: "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

    And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of the prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

    The rest of the song doesn't really agree with this idea, but I thought I would mention this, as even if if my interpretation isn't the intention, it is still a valid point and one that we, as Christians, should attend to. Otherwise our faith will keep being changed, until their is nothing left but lies that will condemn us all to hell.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing! I was think that this song is about people (especially parents) judging Demon Hunter for their appearance and style of music.
    "all you wanted was perfection... so all you are is contradiction" I think that this means that the parents who judge want their kids to he "perfect" so their immediate decision is to deny DH.

    And the statement "you buried the chance.... charming grenade". That is self exanatory if you read it with my interpretation of the song.

    General CommentPeople do not comment, because the meaning is obvious! At least the lyrics in the chorus are clear...

    Could be the words of an angel... Pretty much, yes. If you notice the lyrics it's like an angel talking and encouraging someone. ;-)

    General CommentI think it means that you know "darkness stands on a thread of pinhole light" so, at least in my life, I can translate as :Even though everything is dark, everything is bad and I have no reason to have hope, still all that darkness has just a pinhole of light shining threw.

    and "You buried the chance in a self-righteous glance
    So your sons and your daughters were safe
    But your imperfect path is a heart made of glass
    And the world is a charming grenade" for me at least, explains my kind of personality, I'll do anything to keep others safe, but my little innocent childish weakness was crushed by the 'charming grande' because I'm so adamant about helping others.

    So I mean it all fits together.. the innocent (glass) heart was killed by the grenade, and should be completely dark and hopeless, but it still has a pinhole of light (hope) shining in.
