"Big Wiggly Style" as written by and Daniel Williams Christopher Rubey....
Condemned,
My regret is not writing more for you, lord.
As this ocean comes to be deeper our vessel becomes less stable,
Look to the sky.

Encourage the elements of god,
Rather than the jars that contain them.
If only the ingredients of man were of such elements.
If only.

With great horror, I admit that we all live off the lust and misfortune of others.
All lives off the lust and misfortune of others,
This is vision, not contradiction.

I see greed in the face of a priest,
And deterioration in the walls of cathedrals.

What was right, now wrong,
Casts a cold reflection on glory,
Look to the sky.

    General CommentChelsrouk- Kinda close, but what I took from the song is a little different. It seems that the singer is talking about how "churches" of the present day are becoming more for man than for God. All around the world is getting worse and society is suffering, yet we keep looking to answers from ourselves (elements of man) instead of the elements of God. Churches for the most part are more for profit than helping society reach God. Everywhere you see congregations spending millions for their buildings and social clubs, instead of reaching out to the poor. I'm not saying all churches, but as a majority.

    I like the line "What was right, now wrong". An important reflection on mankind's mindset currently.....

    General CommentI don't think that they are having trouble staying Christians. They have problems with the way other Christians act.

    "Encourage the elements of God. Rather than the jars that contain them." He is saying that we should put our trust in God and rely on Him rather than religious institutions and religious people. People will fail you, and institutions will let you down, but God is always faithful.

    I think the line "casts a cold reflection on glory" means that alot of religious people and churches (living off the misfortune of others) misrepresent how true christians should be. People and churches who should be releasing the glory of God to others who are suffering misfortune are not doing their jobs. It doesn't mean that no one can be trusted, but the sad fact is that not everyone CAN be trusted.

    General Comment"Condemned."
    God will eventually condemn mankind as a whole for our inexplicable sins.

    "My regret is not writing more for you, Lord.
    As this ocean comes to be deeper our vessel becomes less stable."
    The ocean is an ocean of our sins, steadily increasing in depth, and eventually, the waves will just become too powerful and our entire population will be completely corrupted.

    "LOOK TO THE SKY.
    Encourage the elements of God.
    Rather than the jars that contain them."
    Look up to God, pray to God himself, and stop containing your faith in a religion which just weakens your faith. Faith in God isn't measured by how much you go to your local church and show everyone that you are religious, but how much you trust in and believe in God.

    "If only the ingredients of man were of such elements.
    IF ONLY."
    We worship people, idolize them so that they become untouchable (celebrities) as if they are Gods. If only they really were Gods, because then we'd actually be right in worshiping these celebrities of vanity.

    "With great horror, I admit that we all live off the lust and misfortune of others.
    ALL LIVE OFF THE LUST AND MISFORTUNE OF OTHERS."
    Pretty self explanatory. We live for competing with other humans, for worldly achievements, when we should be competing for God and strengthening our faith. We live off being better than each other, when God sees us all as equals.

    "This is vision, not contradiction.
    I see greed in the face of a priest,
    And deterioration in the walls of cathedrals."
    Religion isn't what it once was. It was a way to strengthen your face; it is now a business and is run by greed. God is no longer found in the hearts of priests and in churches.

    "What was right, now wrong,
    Casts a cold reflection on glory.
    LOOK TO THE SKY."
    Again, we glorify people, not God. Look up to the sky, look up to God, not to people.


    This is just my interpretation to the best of my abilities. I'm Muslim and I probably have a different interpretation of these lyrics, but I hope your faith is strengthened through this music.

    General CommentI believe the meaning of this song is simple: how screwed up society has become; even religion. The song starts off with him telling how he regrets what he's done, and how even though he knows it, without god he's still digging his hole deeper and deeper. He basically says to look to the sky, or God, for help. Not man. He tells fellow christians not to conform to society and to "encourage elements of God", or in other words, do what Jesus would do, not what man would do (Rather than the jars that contain them). Then he's almost drawing an element from transcendentalism about all man having a part of god within us all. Once again again he looks and comments on the corruption of society and how we feed off the misfortunes of others and somehow gain strength from them. He goes on to say "this is vision, not contradiction", which I believe means he basically is calling it as he sees it, and it's just an opinion of his. Finally he talks about the corruption in the religions. "I see greed in the face of a priest". Basically he's saying that even the people who are supposed to be the righteous ones, above all of his, are still sucked into worldly desires. Because of this, the church is slowing eroding itself. Now, society has also taken what we know to be inately wrong, and said it's perfectly acceptable. This is also showing how glory has been morphed from it's pure, true form, into something that best suits society; a corrupt glory, if you will. The song closes by restating that should all look up to god for our help.
    This is just my interpretation. Believe what you want.

    General Commentthis song is about looking to god for strength in hard times and striving to made of 'such elements.' it also seems to say maybe that god doesn't seem as present in the church.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about how religion is actually very corrupted today. It wasn't how it was meant to be, and without even a second glance man makes it suit himself, forgetting tradition, and the God he believes in...

    This album is really starting to make me think that Prada is having trouble staying Christians.
    But I love this album, because it is so deep and so very true. A huge eye opener.
