just know
you're not as smooth as you think
oh god can you feel my pain
i tried and i tried but he never listened
your house of lies will burn quickly
and scatter the ashes of you
and soon theyll all know the story
soon theyll all know the truth
seven hours
and thats all you could say
seven hours
choke on your tongue
it all comes around
and soon enough the sky will close in on you
now that youre gone we're better off
i've been blind
but now i see youre a fake
oh God can you feel my pain
i tried and i tried but he never listened
your house of lies will burn quickly
and scatter the ashes of you
and soon theyll all know the story
soon theyll all know the truth
seven hours
and thats all you could say
seven hours
choke on your tongue
and it wont be the last time
that you run away
choke on your tongue
it all comes around
you snake choke on your tongue

    Song MeaningI'm sorry to say you are wrong. This song is not about ryan and his issues with god. I happen to know from a current band member (who will remain unknown) that this song is in fact about telle who used to play bass for greeley estates. The story behind this is that telle left 7 hours before the band went on tour (the specific tour escapes me at the moment). He told them some excuse as to why and the band didn't believe any of his lies. "just know, your not as smooth as you think" they knew telle was lying. "seven hours, and that's all you can say" telle leaves the band only 7 hours before the tour and his excuse is pathetic. "and it won't be the last time you run away" if you know much of telles past, you would know he also did this same thing when he was in the band in fear and faith. "oh god can you feel my pain?" I believe this part is ryan venting to god about the pain felt by the whole band when telle left. It may sound crazy, but it's the truth.

    My InterpretationThe song is about how God failed him and how he lost his faith.

    just know you're not as smooth as you think
    o god can you feel my pain
    I tried and I tried but he never listened


    It further goes to explain how he will expose the truth of "gods lies" to everyone by burning the church downn to he he refers to as "your house of lies" and. The the phrase seven hours refers to gods number and I'm guessing to how long it will take to fulfill his plans.

    This is actually a sad song in my opinion he went through a lot of hurt in his life to make his views this way. I hope this helps!! :)
