"A Media Friendly Turn For The Worse" as written by and Scott Henry Cory Putman....
They provide their nectar and then I am released.
I am a grain of sand underneath the floor and so far out of reach, but I am safe from harm.
Against this shelter they are always hammering, against these ears they are always deafening.

I too know an angry language. Our pain is always accurate and striving to evade its only design.
It wants to strike you down to fall into its arms again.
Blood is thicker than water, but which one did you drink?
Oh...

What I know was divided and broken down by the ignorance of others.
Spoken from their lips, but with the lungs of another.
Sounds great but tastes like blood.
These rumor sessions are assembled by us all... by us all.
They are the earth and we are the breath of life.

Your pain is always accurate and striving to evade its only design.
I want to strike you down to fall into my arms again.
Blood is thicker than water, but which one did you drink... did you drink?

Put down that retribution. I don't need your absolution. Yeah...
Put down that retribution. I don't need your absolution.
Put down that retribution. I don't need your absolution... No... No... No...

    Song MeaningI think the line "blood is thicker than water, but which one did you drink?" is a reference to the blood of Christ. It seems he is saying the blood of Christ is more important than water (a common earthly beverage).

    To me, this is an obvious Christian song. "They are the earth, and we are the breath of life." He is making a comparison of earthly things vs. spiritual things.

    I'm not sure what the meaning is overall, but maybe he is saying Christianity is more important than earthly things.

    General CommentI don't know if I'll be able to express myself, but here we go:

    I think this song is about how we are controlled by the media and other things.

    - "I am a grain of sand underneath the floor and so far out of reach, but I am safe from harm."

    We feel secure in our homes but we don't realize that we are "trapped" in an invisible prison.

    - "Our pain is always accurate and striving to evade its only design.
    It wants to strike you down to fall into its arms again."

    They control our pain to keep us always under their control (arms).

    "What I know was divided and broken down by the ignorance of others.
    Spoken from their lips, but with the lungs of another.
    Sounds great but tastes like blood.
    These rumor sessions are assembled by us all."

    Facts are usually distorted due to bad faith or simply ignorance of someone (distorted even by the News Media). So we don't actually know the truth. These rumors leaves us lost.

    "They are the earth and we are the breath of life."

    I agree with holdenh13 when he said "He is making a comparison of earthly things vs. spiritual things."
    We can't let ourselves be driven by these things. We are here to bring life and heal this world.

    PS: Sorry for my bad english =)
