"Rest" as written by and Jonathon Aherne Abby Mandagi....
Oh baby, ooh baby
Bereaved lady
Oh baby

Oh baby, oh baby
He carved you like a stone
Then left your side
Stop, stop

Oh baby
Slow steady
Heaven's waiting
For you baby

Oh baby, oh baby
He took your soul
And left you out to dry
Stop

Now, you're home free at last
And the cracking whip
That howled
And scarred your back
Has stopped
Oh, it stopped

Oh baby, oh baby
Love baby
Your, your only crime
Oh baby
Stop, stop

Oh baby, oh baby
Love baby
Your, your only crime
Oh baby
Stop, stop

    My InterpretationSince these guys are pretty religous i'm gonna assume the song is too

    "Bereaved lady" Bereaved meaning a person who has suffered the death of someone they loved. Lets say this is mary

    "Took your soul and left you out to dry" Jesus crusifiction
    "the cracking whip that howled and scarred your back" Again in jesus' crussifiction he was whipped quite a lot

    and last but not least "love baby your, your only crime" Yer i'm sure you can figure that one out



    Well thats my interpretation on it, would love to hear other peoples
