Burning shut.
Work. Shut.
It's serenity for worms
And you'll bow to the son

You know, you don't know, you don't know, you don't know, you don't know

Shut. Steal
Touch the hands of your glowing Christ
Burning shut.

No, you don't know, you don't know, you don't know, you don't

I've got a handle on the fiction. I'm losing my grip cause I'm losing my fingers I've...
I've a handle on the fiction. I'm losing my grip cause I'm losing my...
I've a handle on the fiction. I'm losing my grip cause I'm losing my fingers I've...
I've a handle on the fiction. I'm losing my grip cause I'm losing my fingers I'm losing my fingers I'm...

Shiftless mouth of Judas
Did you spit in his fucking face
Or ease the burden?

No, you don't know, you don't know, you don't know, you don't know

Shoot, cleanse off
Why just live with your fucking faith
Burning shut.

no, you don't know, you don't know, you don't know, you don't know

I've got a handle on the fiction. I'm losing my grip cause I'm losing my fingers I've...
I've a handle on the fiction. I'm losing my grip cause I'm losing my...
I've a handle on the fiction. I'm losing my grip cause I'm losing my fingers I've...
I've a handle on the fiction. I'm losing my grip cause I'm losing my fingers I'm losing my fingers I'm...

Man like wait, wait. It won't stop burning shut.
Burning shut.
Burning shut.
Burning shut.
Burning and it won't stop

And it burns, and it burns, and it burns

I've got a handle on the fiction. I'm losing my grip cause I'm losing my fingers I've...
I've a handle on the fiction. I'm losing my grip cause I'm losing my...
I try to handle my BI like a GI, unnerved at your door.

Burning shut.
Burning shut.

    General CommentSounds like the song has atheist overtones although I know these are unofficial...

    However, "I try to handle my BI like a GI, unnerved at your door."

    That line makes me think of Darryl's(sp?)Chron's Diesease which we all know he has. BI could me "bowel inflammation" because Chron's Diesease is an IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Diesease). GI of course means soldier...

    General CommentBI is also bisexual and there were rumours of him being bisexual a few years back so maybe he handles BI like a GI which up until recently was under the Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy.

    General CommentI think "Whap Whap" is on the right track. Great song nonetheless.

    General CommentI'm interested to know if Daryl was raised Christian. Between this song and some of the songs on Coloring Book, it seems Daryl is not too happy with Christianity. This song almost seems like he's losing his faith...or rather emancipating himself from religion. I have no clue. But religion seems to be a common theme in newer glassjaw.

    General CommentAgreed russell9001.

    It's been there overtly often enough but most of the time its not incredibly obvious, of course it was about interpretation back then too. Most of what i've heard on Green and Coloring Book is OVERTLY religious in its lyrics and tone IMHO.

    Also from the old lyrics of some of the reworked songs to the updated versions that got pressed, it seems the tone was the same. Most of Green (from what i understand) is some of the "older" stuff( GJ had been kicking around.

    General Comment"B.I." is a slang term for business, used in hip hop. Darryl is saying he tries to handle his business like a soldier, despite his anxiety.

    Perhaps he's referring to the fear he'll feel approaching the gates of heaven, and how he'll try to keep his composure.
