if I believed in god I would not have done the things you’ve done
because you were only half willing to follow the son

you take our homes but your framework doesn’t hold
against the feet of us giants
you’ve been alone and you’re singing to the sun
cause you know you’re on your own and you’re going home

like an animal burying its bones
but leaving fingerprints on the walls inside my home
but if we’re so different then why did we start this?

you take our homes but your framework doesn’t hold
against the feet of us giants
you’ve been alone and you’re singing to the sun
cause you know you’re on your own and you’re going home

you can hide it if you want to but everybody knows it’s true
buried everything you knew but they won’t keep a thing from you

    My Interpretationi know this is only a half formulated thought but to play with the religious beliefs idea maybe this song is one person of a relationship talking about the other a liar
    specifically they lie about their beliefs?? maybe to themselves or their parents/community to be more accepted
    "you were only half willing to follow the son" saying the person is hesitant to follow their religion
    "but if we’re so different then why did we start this?" the one saying this isn't religious so they're rhetorically asking why they started this if they really were as different as they claimed to be in their views
    "you’ve been alone and you’re singing to the sun cause you know you’re on your own" the person deep down thinks that god doesn't exist though of course like i said they lied? about it
    maybe
    or just lying in general like "your framework doesn’t hold against the feet of us giants" could be a way of saying they see through this person's lies and like the lies won't work on them because they see past the bull shit
    and the last part of the lyrics could fit that too

    idk it's a long shot but it's just an idea to work with i felt like i had something then i just kinda lost it, i wish i knew what this song really meant
