"On The Cross (Save Yourself Mix)" as written by Jeph Howard, Daniel Whitesides, Quinn Allman and Robert Mccracken....
We kill the fagots, we kill the lesbians,
I said goddammit we kill them all!

We were taught to kneel and bow our heads.
I tried simply standing up instead.
Heard rumors of transparent legs
And walks for days and days.

These days we reach for so much more
We reached the point where we can't go home.
Alone we wait here underground
Amidst the others waiting

So pray, then, if it makes you feel safe.
But all I can is we go our own way.
We go our own way.
So save us.

Who would guess you were the chosen one?
The right place, you were the firstborn son.
Once questioned stable state of mind
To spend some time in the gutter.

A full collapse and caving in
Just wait for faith to kick in
I lost track of time as i stood in line
Amidst the other believers.

So pray then, if it makes you feel safe
All I can say is we go are own way

So pray then, if it makes you feel safe
All I can say is we go are own way
We go are own way
So save us

Over and over and I still can not believe
We can't save ourselves
Give me a chance up on the cross and watch me bleed.
Now ask for help

Having faith in something you can't see
Takes something else
Over and over and i still can not believe
We can save ourselves

So pray that if it makes you feel safe
All I can say is we go are own way

So pray then, if it makes you feel safe
All I can say is we go are own way
Send your prayers our way
To save us

Kill 'em again cuz they didn't die hard enough

    General CommentI usually don't listen to remixes because they end up being either boring or annoying or they don't capture the essence of a song, in this case, boy I'm glad I got this Bside.
    I wouldn't call it a remix, I'd say it's a "remake" of On The Cross, and a damn good one, it only uses the chorus as a base but the beat and feel to it is different (and in my opinion, better)

    This remake shows a more subtle side of the original's lyrics, it's showing how Bert (or whoever the protagonist of the song is) wants to believe in a supreme being or force and he's determined to endure awful moments just to get a proof that there's something out there.I see this song as a person who has lost his faith and now it's doubting the chosen path. A personal struggle. On the other side, original On the Cross had a feeling of a believer leaving his faith but respecting other's beliefs.

    Anyway, I like this song better, give it a go.

    General CommentI agree with dag 102.

    I also believe he's struggling with problems in his life, and he's saying that no one will really listen to him.
    So he's saying that he'll deal with it himself.
    He wants to believe in this thing that everyone is talking about, it's just hard after all he's been through.
