I met a man at church on Saturday
he said I’m here because I’m sick
and after sick I’ll be dead
and once I’m dead I’ll be saved

I played an atheist on judgment day
If we’re all here because we are picked
well I was picked with no faith
so once I’m saved don’t mean shit

I can tell we found the rhythm
and oh…we can obey
but if they don’t pray
then they don’t mean a thing

I got my fathers stitch on mother’s day
it does appear life’s a bitch
but I’m a dick just the same
because we’re the same don’t mean shit

we can’t all forget how to be son of man

afraid that the wait has only
given away this opportunity
lucky for me, the sun it sets
and it sets on and on again

they learn the sea, for they will swim
I will learn the sea tonight. I will learn.
they learn the sea (they're gonna burn tonight),
for they will swim (they're burning now)
I bet they cannot, forget their landmark

I met a man at church on Saturday
He said I’m here because I’m sick
but we all drop just the same
and when we drop we will learn to bounce

I believe in everything you tell me because
I believe in everything you show because
I can see it all

Having trouble getting over insecurities?
I am the wall
if you cannot forget this I will remain
you will not fall
I found that the wait has only
given away this opportunity
lucky for me, the sun it sets
it sets on and on, again

we all can’t be a son of man

    Song MeaningFrom Jason on this song:
    "First, I would like to make the patrons of this magazine, and possibly letlive., aware that we are not "that" band. We're not going to stand behind anything that tramples on another doctrine of belief because that is the most common vice we exhibit as human beings - arrogance. We seem to feel that this universe is centered solely around our existence and never consider catering to anything but ourselves. Catering to our species and much more specifically, catering to us, the individual.

    On a much smaller, but just as detrimental scale we have invented ways to marginalize others by way of regimes, labels, and belief systems. While religion(s) is included, one must be aware that this is not the only one. There is a much bigger picture and when we focus all of our efforts on one issue we become fanatics, whether you're falling to your knees as the presence of the holy ghost takes over your body or you're masturbating over Richard Dawkins’ latest lecture at an esteemed University on Youtube. The fact remains - you are falling victim to fanaticism. You are now foreclosing the bounty of alternatives that you could at least glance at before you subscribe to "the truth". We are, on the other hand, "this" band. The band that will illuminate that arrogance spiraling through our genetic coding and manifests itself in ambiguous warfare, unwarranted ignorance, and terrible fashion trends. Shout out to Tom Ford for keeping it classy over the years while the world was riddled with rue and dire international issues."
