Dear Lord Jesus,
My eyes wont close
and my hands wont clap
and my hair don't grow

I'm so lonely
My minds gonna go
If i dont find me a friend in the snow
You've taken more than I owe

I want from no one
what I need from you

I've got family, they sing through the fun
They've got a son too spineless,
Scared now to run

Say you love me, and show me some fun
Tell me that life don't weigh a god damn ton
I swear my back's just a drum

    General Comment"Dear lord Jesus" in the first line, and then

    "I've got family, they sing through the fun
    They've got a son too spineless,
    Scared now to run

    Say you love me, and show me some fun
    Tell me that life don't weigh a god damn ton
    I swear my back's just a drum"

    those are from the lyrics book at least, even though it sounds like "phone" in that one line and not "fun"

    anyway, cool song, sounds like he is stuck in a rut, looking for an escape

    Song MeaningYeah, I think he's very frustrated spiritually.

    "Dear Lord Jesus,
    My eyes wont close
    and my hands wont clap
    and my hair don't grow"
    His eyes won't close could be referring to how people often shut their eyes during worship-- I say this because he also refers to how to his hand's won't clap, meaning he won't willingly boogie down and get excited about this Jesus guy like the religious do.


    "If i dont find me a friend in the snow
    You've taken more than I owe"
    If he doesn't find some friendship or happiness, then it's proof that there's more evil on this earth than good. In such a case, God's made a world that isn't worth living and is a cruel being for it.

    "Say you love me, and show me some fun
    Tell me that life don't weigh a god damn ton
    I swear my back's just a drum"
    More on the conundrum of the happiness/sadness balance of life. He can't possibly perceive how people are supposed to just let their worries and problems flow away like the Bible suggests, because he feels so much weight pushing him down. Life plays him like a drum, pounding away constantly.


    I just hope this guy comes to peace with this stuff.
