Whenever stories are prescribed
That we could never obelise
Then how could anyone supply a doubt

I take you at your word

But the tale could have a flaw
And if you find yourself in awe
Then you’ll only hunger for the truth

Veritas numquam vincitur ipsa
Ne qua dicuntur imprudenter credas

When I’m crucified, taunted and denied
I’ll stand strong, with my back against the wall

At times it seems so very hard
All that we learned we must discard
That everyone you’d ever trust has lied

When I’m crucified, haunted and defied
I belong to the few that died for all

You cannot question or defy
Or you’ll find out the hard way why
You’d better run before you walk alone

Veritas numquam vicitur ipsa
Ne quae dicuntur imprudenter credas
Sed tua teneas

    My InterpretationThe way that I read this song is about loss of religion, particularly if you reside in a majority religious group/community/country.

    It starts out that you don't question what you believe in, because you are not supposed to. Then, as you start to think about it more, and in more detail, you find out that the stories you were told have something that doesn't make sense, for one reason or another; so you get curious and look for more information.
    As you do, you find out that all you have learned from this group etc. is based on something that you don't believe in.
    When you tell them about this, and possibly try to get them to see what you see, they get aggressive at you, and so you stand up to them.

    Just wish that I had a proper grasp on the Latin parts of this song (Google translate isn't helping much) and more knowledge to the references of "the few who died for all."
