"Modern Day Saint" as written by and David Isaac Lizmi Thomas Frank Deis....
This life is so mysterious
So bright, the lights, no fear in us
But then we get inside
For the perky ride
Then we all look back
At the strange attack
Oh no!
He’s much too young
Please don’t take this one

Don’t say good bye, don’t say good night
Come inside by the pound
Waiting for this crowd
They’ll all draw in without expecting
A broken body, the band’s finale
Now all surround, this body going down
In this small town

Precious light don’t decide his night
Put aside your needs for just one night
Yeah, he doesn’t have to (see you)
Not everybody (needs to)
And we wander back
Hanging on out your spirits
Running dry

Don’t say good bye, don’t say good night
Come inside by the pound
Waiting for this crowd
They’ll all draw in without expecting
A broken body, the band’s finale
Now all surround, this body going down
A broken body, the bands finale
And they’ll all surround, this body going down

    My InterpretationHmm no comments yet? I wanted to see if anyone else thinks this song is about death? I feel like there is a lot to the song and I just can't grasp it, at least not consciously.
