It's hard to breathe when you're choking your self.
It's hard to see through eyes misleading.
Though I swear I've been here before.

So please, oh please, pick up your feet: I can't carry you
anymore. Anymore.

In a world of disbelief these words are guidance.
That one should follow.

So please, oh please, pick up your feet: I can't carry you.

So say your prayers for the last time,
you're a victim of your own lie.
You're a failure, you're wrong.

We lay our hearts into a pool of filth,
we are lead by false pretenses.

In a world of disbelief these words are guidance.

    General CommentOceana is such a great band. They claim to not be a Christian band, but I can see Christianity and Christian referrences althroughout their songs, which, to me, makes the band twelve times better :)

    This song is basically talking about the foolishness of atheism.

    "It's hard to breathe when you're choking your self.
    It's hard to see through eyes misleading."
    -He's basically saying that atheism is a set of foolish beliefs, and in the end, they are only hurting themselves.

    "So please, oh please, pick up your feet: I can't carry you."
    -He's basically having an argument with one or many atheists, and he's basically at the point where he's begging them to convert to Christianity, because he cares about these atheists.

    "In a world of disbelief these words are guidance.
    That one should follow."
    -Now, he's defending the validity of the Holy Bible. He's saying that, with so many twisted belief systems, secular movements, and general disbelief in society, the Bible is still the truth, and much of society is rejecting the Bible as superstition or whatever, without ever opening up a Bible for themselves and seeing how wonderful the Book really is.

    "you're a victim of your own lie.
    You're a failure, you're wrong."
    -He's basically saying that atheism is just downright wrong, and erroneous.

    "We lay our hearts into a pool of filth,
    we are lead by false pretenses.

    In a world of disbelief these words are guidance."
    -He's saying that atheism is full of hypocritical lies, and it leads down a doomed path.
    "they lay their hearts in a pool of filth", by this he means that atheists rely on their own understanding, and their morals (if they have any at all) are not accounted for by anything of significance. He is also saying that God will have justice on such disbelief.
    by "in a world of disbelief, these words are guidance." he is referring to the previous verse, and he is saying that atheism is a pretentious and foolish belief, and smart atheists will come to realising this.

    This is how I see the song.

    General CommentOkay. I think you can take this song anyway you want to, because I'm sure you could see this song as them saying religion is wrong.
    Ydg?
    Either way, it's a great song.
