"3D" as written by and Brent Allen Jimmy Gregerson....
Sugar coated white lies
Can only get you so far
Before you get caught up in the middle
I'm a human too
My life has value
And everybody will think the same

Good morning
It's time to wake up
Sugar coated and white lies in the middle
If this is a lie
Then what am I?

Now I'm standing on my rooftop
And I
Sure could use someone to talk to
Someone to make it alright
'Cause I'm done pretending.

Sugar coated white lies
Can only get you so far
Before you get caught up in the middle
I'm a human too
My life has value
And everybody will think the same

I never thought that I would live to see
Everyone and me
Struggling to breathe
If this is a lie
Then what am I?

When the power of love
Exceeds the love for power
The world will finally
Finally know peace

They fight for the center of universe with the sun
Your trapped in your tube
And blind from the truth
This is the future that's in store for you.

Sugar coated white lies
Can only get you so far
Before you get caught up in the middle
I'm a human too
My life has value
And everybody will think the same

Sugar coated white lies
Can only get you so far
Before you get caught up in the middle
I'm a human too
My life has value
And everybody will think the same

This is the portrait
The man behind the curtain has painted for you
As long as you choose to be separate
You leave yourselves completely enslaved

    General CommentxBeforeBreathing is the closest to being right. If you've ever seen the documentary ZEITGEIST, it talks about how the government is lying to us about 9/11 and so forth.

    "My life has value."

    "When the power of love
    Exceeds the love for power
    The world will finally know peace."

    "This is the portrait the man behind the curtain
    has painted for you"

    Those quotes are from the movie, I'm not positive about the last one though.
    It is about how fucked our world is right now. How set up everything is.

    I advise that everyone see that documentary. It's worth your time.

    General CommentThis song is about how the media (television, magazines, etc.) feeds us lies and/or forces us to believe things that aren't necessarily true. It also goes into depth on how every individual should have their own rights and purposes even if they aren't as well known as the people you see on your screens.

    General CommentOk 3 months later and yes im still up set there's comments on this amazing song!
    Whatever..I've come back to tell my thoughts on the meaning of the song...and I've concluded that its about a guy that thinks he's in a good relationship, but really his girlfriend is lying and probably cheating and he finds this out and it hurts him a lot! So much he wants to kill himself...or thinks about killing himself...something along those lines
    Yeah!

    General Comment....no....not at all. not every song is about someone crying over their girlfriend. Its pretty obvious. its about the fucked up state the worlds in right now, where nobody gives a fuck about anyone other then themselves

    General CommentNot every socially aware song by every band is a reference to Zeitgeist - I'm seeing these prophetic people all over the place claiming so. A lot of people talk about our culture and how fucked up it is, without having heard about it from that subpar documentary. There's a million different ways to come to that conclusion and that's just one. Who's to say they haven't just read Howard Zinn, Derrick Jensen, Emma Goldman, or writings by the Zapatistas or any anarchist literature? Maybe they've just listened to a lot of bands that talk about this stuff and it's rubbed off. There's so many possibilities and we've no clue.

    A lot of people can see how we're "enslaved" in this civilization, or this society, or capitalist system (depending on who you talk to), and the majority of them didn't get it from that doc.

    Now it's my turn to push something - If you want you're world turned upside down even more so, and by a more credible source, read Derrick Jensen's "Endgame".

    General Comment"When the power of love

    Isn't that a Jimi Hendrix quote?
    lol

    But that does back up the meaning behind it. Many Americans from the 1960's, including Jimi Hendirx, hated the government.

    General Commentthis song is about our culture and how everyone is so caught up lies and eveythign in so fucked up.
    and how you need to seperate the lies from the truth and you cant believe everything everyone says.

    and im pretty sure it does have to do with Zeitgeist because andrew, the drummer, loves that, and i think hes the one that wrote this song.
