"Incision" as written by and Don Clark Ryan Clark....
Don't leave us
They said that you had gone astray
Don't lead us
Away from the light

We stood behind the veil and watched you walk away from us
You shattered all our dreams in one fatal mistake

You fractured every piece of life that we cared about, remember how
You breathed in us new life and then you took it away, you'll never live that down

I gave you every guiding word to cut it off, cut it off, cut it off, cut it off
Now you hand me back the blade to make that first incision for you

[Chorus]
Wait and see
The weight of life may be the end of me; the tension, break me

We held you up on high so why did you abandon us?
We never thought you'd be the one to fall so far

You fractured every piece of life that we cared about, remember how
You breathed in us new life and then you took it away, you'll never live that down

I gave you every guiding word to cut it off, cut it off, cut it off, cut it off
Now you hand me back the blade to make that first incision for you

For you

[Chorus]

    General CommentI think it might be about idolizing people or material things, not God, and how you'll always be let down by it.

    General CommentI think that this song is stating a veiw of someone that you hold as the perfect Christian and seems to be sheding light on life but in the end they turn out to be just another hypocrite in a stained-glass masquerade and they dont even have the ability to help themselves much less someone else.

    General CommentIndeed. Aggree partialy. It's about someone who was quite the believer and was leading the others, he was very influencial and stuff. Now he walked away, but I don't think it's about how helpless he is now. ;)

    General CommentThe verses do seem to be talking about someone people have put much faith in only to be disappointed or lied to, but then when it gets to the chorus it seems to change.

    I gave you every guiding word to cut it off;
    And now you hand me back the blade
    to make the first incision for you

    This sounds like it's from God's perspective, like he's saying: If you want to be rid of your sin, you have to be the one to "cut it off", in other words, "handing us the blades". But then we chicken out and hand him back the blade to make the first incision.

    That's what I've always thought about the song, but could never find a link between the verses and chorus.

    General CommentWhat I have come to believe this song is about is that it is about Lucifer (Satan, The Devil, The Deciever, etc.) being cast out of Heaven and into Hell, but it is told, for the most part, through the point of view of the angels in Heaven

    Lucifer was God's most beautiful angel. What has led me to the conclusion that this song is about Lucifer is that Lucifer was cast down into Hell for trying to rebel against God (the part about falling so far). Lucifer was held on high by the angels, the angels looked up to him, but then when he tried to rebel against God, the angels saw Lucifer for who he truly was, a deciever. The angels soon realized that the one angel that they had thought was the greatest of them all had gone astray and had abandoned them for what he had done.

    This is the conclusion that I have come to due to the lyrics of this song, and I am not saying that my interpretation is correct, but this is just what I believe is the correct meaning due to the conclusions I have made due to the song lyrics.

    General CommentHere's the song meaning from Ryan Clark from: bandsonfire.com/…

    "Incision deals with putting people on a pedestal. Often times, people like to think of certain others as immovable or unfailing, and they look to these people for a perfect example at all times. No human, aside from Jesus, should ever be looked at in that way. That kind of thinking will only bring disappointment and confusion.

    This song explores two different perspectives. The perspective of someone who has been disappointed by someone that they thought was supposed to live a perfect life, and that person who might have failed them. The pressure that may accumulate from a situation like this is bound to break a person. True hope should only be placed in Christ, and no man. Christ will never fail you. Man will always fail you.

    "It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man." - Psalms 118: 8"

    My InterpretationAgreed in a kinda different way as everyone else. Someone or a group of people following someone as a good Christian or good Christian figure and than that person turns around and leads them "astray" or in the wrong direction.
