I see you lingering around
Like a bad idea

Peddling salvation
Threatening damnation

About to drop you like Cain
Like Cain dropped Abel
About to drop you like Cain
Like Cain dropped Abel

You're no medium
Just the scum on the shallow end of assumption
Time to come correct Son

Rapture my ass
You better hope he takes you
Before I do

About to drop you like Cain
Like Cain dropped Abel
About to drop you like Cain
You better hope he takes you

About to drop you like Cain
I had enough of your voodoo
About to drop you like Cain
You better hope he takes you

Up the Sodom
You're Gomorrah
Delivering redemption
Feel my resurrection

About to drop you like Cain
Like Cain dropped Abel
About to drop you like Cain
You're gonna hope he takes you

About to drop you like Cain
I've had enough of your voodoo
About to drop you like Cain
You're gonna hope he takes you
Before I do

    General CommentUnlike most of maynards work, this one is pretty easy to figure out imo.
    Its about him killing all the rodents/vermin etc that are eating & destroying his vineyards in Az. In the doc Blood into Wine, he talks about what a pain in the ass & all the trouble those creatures cause.

    My InterpretationI'm thinking its more like that moment when somebody decides to murder somebody.Like you've waited and waited for somebody to straighten out but this time its just too much and you've decided your going to murder them. I mean not just murder them but MURDER them, Cain was I the first murderer in the bible. He invented murder, so when I hear it, to me it sounds like I'm not just going to murder you, I'm re-inventing the whole idea of murder and setting a new standard with you.

    My InterpretationI think this song is probably directed at Harold Camping and just in general everyone who ever talks about the End Times. I never even think about that dumb shit i imagine Maynard doesn't either: thats reasonable and logical thinking. Look up this asshole HAROLD CAMPING Back in 94 he made a public prediction of ''rapture'' and again in 2011 sayin itd be on may 21 6pm he's the next fool martyr is what he is (thats a eulogy reference to the layperson)

    Song MeaningTo me, this song seems like being fed up with Christianity. The whole May 21 crap, rapture, ect. I'm going to drop you like Cain dropped Able is a biblical reference to Cain and Able who were Adam and Eve's sons. Sometimes I want to drop people like Cain dropped Able.

    General CommentMaynard's singing in this song is just amazing.

    The part when he sings "rapture my ass, you better hope he takes you, before I do" is magical.

    I also believe that this is one of his more straight forward songs. Most likely about murder like was already mentioned.

    General CommentI'd be surprised if this song ISN'T about Harold Camping, altho this applies to all types and degrees of doomsday cult followers.

    General CommentTo me, this sounds like Maynard's hatred to a religious leader, perhaps a higher up like the pope, or a cult leader etc. Or perhaps the personification of Christianity itself. Or it could be the perspective of a Christian towards another religion... Oddly it fits perfectly to the storyline of the new Dexter series from Dexter's perspective towards DDK.

    Lyric CorrectionThe line "Peddling salvation" is actually "Echoing salvation".

    Lyric CorrectionOkay, the only lyric that doesn't make sense here is "Up the Sodom, you're Gomorrah," because Sodom and Gomorrah were both cities. You don't say "THE Sodom," you just say "Sodom."

    Because of that, I think he's actually singing "Up to Sodom, you're Gomorrah delivering redemption," which makes a lot more sense. He's saying, "Here you are, going 'up to Sodom' and saying YOU'RE going to deliver redemption when you (Gomorrah) are just as f***ed." This whole song is about hypocrisy in religion (think Westboro Baptist Church) so I think this makes way more sense.
