Well cut my wings, break me down
My faith is gone, I've lost my crown
Am I alive or is this a dream
'Cause the illusions are breaking at the seams

What am I following, why am I bothering
I fell a victim to the trick and now I'm sick of all of it
And all I got is this box of strings
Am I really bringing anything

Why do I question love when it burns so
Deep inside my chest
Why do I live in fear when I always know
Oh, I'm under his blanket

Are you a saint or just a man in a blanket
Can you please fess up because I can't take it
I love you too much for it to be a lie
Just give me proof say the news, either way I'll cry and cry

If it's all a hoax I'll die
And if you're telling the truth I'll fly
Well all I want to do is just stay in your holy grace
Let you wash me down, Lord and let you paint my face

Why do I question love when it burns so
Deep inside my chest
Why do I live in fear when I always know
Oh, I'm under his blanket.

I feed people, serve people
Take them to the holy steeples
Where the rascals manufacture love to show us that we're equal
Constellations station meditation for the dying
Kiss your wish to make it bliss and give it to the crying

Children can't find shelter, so they retreat to the drugs
Give out both your hands, man, and swallow them with love
The clock is ticking way too fast
Triggers are pulled and guns blast
While the mothers take their children to the kindergarten class

Well i'm under the blanket we're gonna make it to that holy place
Where we are united without violence, every single race
Look into eyes and you will find that we're all of the same
Blood blood blood blood, blood blood blood

Well neem karoli baba, well he taught me like a father
I'm a Ramayana soldier, fighting with his love and honor
Holy mother tell your brothers
Wrap them up in all your covers
This is the time to rise and shine and burn off all the thunder

Feel it all in your blood, blood
Unify and become, come
All of us on the run, run
Uur revolution of love
All of the elements turn, turn
Fire and water they burn
Om Mani Padme Hum Om Mani Padme Hum Om Mani, hey

Why do I question love when it burns so
Deep inside my chest
Why do I live in fear when I always know
Oh, I'm under his blanket.

    General Commentthis song is not about a cult. this song is about Neem Karoli Baba, the great indian saint. Baba wears a blanket, hence under his blanket.
    it's about realizing that baba is his guru. He's finally waking up and seeing the illusions of this life.
    " why do i live in fear when i always know i'm under his blanket" Baba always says "you are to fear nothing." this is trevor saying, i should not fear, baba is taking care of it.
    "are you a saint or just a man in a blanket"
    either way he'll cry and cry because if baba is not a true saint then he will be devastated, if he is he will cry tears of joy.

    baba says "feed people, serve people"

    from there on it pretty much speaks for itself.

    My InterpretationI love this song and just realized what it means (in my opinion)
    I think this song is about a cult. He talks about being broken down, pleasing the lord (leader), manufacturing love, saying he'll die if this is all a lie. He say's they are all the same, a cult like feature.

    These lines
    Children can't find shelter, so they retreat to the drugs
    Give out both your hands, man, and swallow them with love

    Where a the leader/recruiter takes children who aren't wanted by their families and have drug addictions.


    I would love to hear anyone's interpretation!

    Om Mani Padhi Hum,
    Dylan.

    General CommentMaybe... the blanket represents God's control. And he's asking why he follows the routines he does.
    "Look into eyes and you will find that we're all of the same
    Blood blood blood blood, blood blood blood "
    In Christianity, Jesus gave his blood for everyone, not just those who follow him and don't. He loves everyone the same.

    General CommentThis song is about Krishna. Which is who Trevor Hall "worships."
    I know this for sure since I met him and talked to him at my temple because I aswell "worship" Krishna.
