Dear God
Will no one get out of here alive
Lost your head
In this new medicine
Floating in the sky

Heavy clouds come crashing down
Harder every time
Sink or swim in these
Loaded fantasies
Flooding out your mind

Fear God for now you've gone
And lost your sight of land
Drunk with power
Your final hour is
Running out of sand

Hung by your self-righteous hands
Get ready to meet your maker now
Backlashing
Back at you liar
Backlashing
Back at you
Run coward

(Backlashing
Back at you)

Bear the truth
When the storm comes through
With Hell and high tide

Tip the scales and
Drive the nails in deeper every time

Dear God,
Will anyone get out of here alive?

Dead ahead again
Due to medicine
Heavy clouds collide

Hung by your self-righteous hands
Get ready to meet your maker now
Backlashing
Back at you liar
Backlashing
Back at you
Run coward

(Backlashing
Back at you
Back at you
Back at you
Back at you)

Hung by your self-righteous hands
Get ready to meet your maker now
Backlashing
Back at you liar
Backlashing
Back at you
Run coward

Hung by your self-righteous hands
Run coward
Get ready to meet your maker now

    My InterpretationI'm so happy to hear this song again! Haven't heard it in a while. Anyways, here I go with my big fat train of thoughts...going to have to go do this one part at a time, just saying...

    At first, this person is praying that nobody gets out of this situation, whatever the degree is, alive. Apparently, everybody has sinned too much to get out alive either way. It's like a plea for peace or something like that. The leader of this situations (whoever decided to make this situation happen) is in a fantasy land, not caring what is happening to others at all. It's already falling, but this person's head is in the clouds, so he/she doesn't realize it yet. Now the person who was praying is trying to get this leader to realize it's all going to come back to hit him/her in the face and that it's not going to be any fun at all.

    Now, the person is wonder if anybody will be alive. This is like a desperate hope to stay alive because you can only live once. And this leader is apparently a coward for running away from the truth, although it'll only lead him to hurt himself/herself in the end.

    I don't know if it's just me, but it reminds me of Hitler and the Holocaust. That thought just ran right thought me right now. But this was a lot longer that I thought...I suppose its fine. :)
