"Inside Out" as written by and Britt Daniel....
Time's gone inside out
Time gets distorted with
This intense gravity
I don't got time for holy rollers
But then they wash my feet
And I won't be their soldier

There's intense gravity
Yeah, there's intense gravity
I'm just your satellite
I'm just your satellite

Ooh, and I know that time's gone inside out
And now it's only like we told you
Hm, oh then they wash my feet
They do not make me complete

Break out a character for me
Time keeps on going when
We got nothing else to give
We got nothing else to give

Ooh, 'cause our time's gone inside out
I don't make time for holy rollers
Hm, there's only you I need
They do not make me complete

    General Commentkiller song .. so surprised its not getting traction. To me its about meeting that someone who makes you feel so complete that times stands still. I think the author may have lost that someone and is looking to God for guidance and still feel confused on why it did not work out.

    General CommentThis song confuses me only because it sounds like the author refers to "they" are washing his feet as if forced. Then states "and I won't be their soldier", which carries a very obvious meaning.

    Washing of feet is very Biblically symbolic in that it means to 'wash away ones sins' and be part of Jesus. For instance: John 13: 12-17;

    12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?

    13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

    14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.

    15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

    16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

    17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

    Jesus washed the feet of his disciples before he was crucified, even Simon Peter, who would betray him later as a symbolic gesture.

    It is obvious to me that this author knows this well and is saying that he will not be a "soldier" for "them", meaning a soldier for Jesus/Christianity. Even though the author isn't clarifying who "they" are, it is strongly implied. 'Washing of the feet' is famously associated with Jesus Christ, and through this we can then say "oh then they wash my feet, they do not make me complete" could mean that Christianity did not make this person feel complete. The song lyrics are a bit arrogant.

    "I don't got time for holy rollers" solidifies this interpretation.

    This song has subtle context and hidden meanings. I am not surprised because this is usually how the "industry" usually rolls.
