"Stripmall Religion" as written by and Sam Lewis Roberts....
I see nothin? at all
But I hear that I'm caught in the crossfire, oh
And fear keepin? me low, low to the ground
And it's clear that what I don't know is pullin? me down

And all your strip mall religion
Is makin? me a belligerent man
In spite of TV confessions
Well, I still do the best I can

What goes on in the shadows
Will come into light
And what was wrong with your mind
Can it made to be right?

So keep a watchful eye on your neighbor tonight
Oh, keep a watchful eye on your neighbor tonight

?Cause all this strip mall religion
Is makin' me a belligerent man
Eleventh hour decisions
Were lackin' in precision

We're the orphans of the storm
It was one for the ages
In my dreams we are all reborn
On the unwritten pages

You go your way and I'll go mine
I'll see you somewhere down the line
You go your way and I'll go mine

Now there's bloodshed in my hometown
And there was bloodshed
There were kids shot down
There were kids shot down, oh

All this strip mall religion
Is makin? me a belligerent man
In spite of TV confessions
Well, I still do the best I can

Yeah, your strip mall religion
Is makin? me a belligerent man
Eleventh hour decisions
Were lackin? in precision

Ooh, and it makes me uneasy now
You know it makes me uneasy
I said it makes me uneasy now
You know it makes me uneasy, uneasy

You go your way and I'll go mine
I'll see you somewhere down the line
You go your way and I'll go mine
I'll see you somewhere down the line

    General CommentWhat i think it's about is Commercialism, and the fact that people are more connected to possessions now than poeple were to religion and God in the past.

    I'm pretty sure the part "Now there's bloodshed in my hometown, There were kids shot down" is about the Dawson college shooting in 2006, in Sam Robert's home town of Montreal.

    General CommentI think its about how religious differences are so small and so numerous yet they cause people to be 'belligerent'. When he says he sees nothing but is caught in a crossfire I think it means even if you don't see the differences between religions there is a fight between the viewpoints...also when he talks about kids being shot down. I would agree its about Dawson College but I think it applies to many situations where like he said people are becoming belligerent. He also says keep a careful watch on your neighbour. To me this song just sounds like a guy who is frustrated with religions causing turmoil

    General Comment"Yeah your stripmall religion
    Is making me a belligerent man
    You're left with our decisions
    Well I can't precision"

    should be

    "Yeah your stripmall religion
    Is making me a belligerent man
    You're eleventh hour decisions
    are lacking in precision"
