"Let The Evil Go East" as written by and Ryan Donald/hackenson Zimmerman....
Will you send me a sign to show me that you're up there?
I want to believe
open my eyes, i want to know what I'm missing
I want to believe

Why should I trust in something I've never seen before?
in someone I've never met before?
why should i trust in you?
how do I even know that you're even there?

Will you send me a sign to show me that you're up there?
I want to believe
open my eyes, i want to know what I'm missing

I'm not the man I thought I would be
can you help me?
I'm so full of sin, the evil's inside me
will you help me?

They say there's nothing, and that I'm foolish to believe so
and that it's all inside my head
tell me this is what I've waited for

Will you send me a sign to show me that you're up there?
I want to believe
open my eyes because I want to feel your grace
and this time I'm sure, I know that you're listening

Cover your eyes, forget what you see.
Go West Young Man, Let The Evil Go East

    General CommentIt's about his struggles with believing that God is real. I know where he's been. It's like life is so bad sometimes you wonder if He's even there... We beg for signs, some kind of reconciliation. Warmth in our hearts. So we know. So we never forget that He is always with us.

    I love the ending to this song. The last lines are all about redemption. "Cover your eyes, forget what you see, go west young man, let the evil go east." A clear cut tie to the verse in the bible that says "He casts our sins as far as the east is to the west."

    General CommentThis song is pretty easy to interpret. He struggles with beliefs at the beginning.. but

    "They say there's nothing, and that I'm foolish to believe so
    and that it's all inside my head
    tell me this is what I've waited for"

    he followed his heart, kept believing, not being influenced, and whoila! he found God.
    Yes, I could totally relate to this song.
