I am lost
Need a god
Somewhere to go when it's all over
I am blind
Give me eyes
Kaleidoscope the world in color

Don't have time to meditate the meaning of the rain
Synchronize our memories til we all think same way

Cuz I get lost
Need a god
Help me put my world in order

I don't wanna know the truth
I conceive a better way to lie
I just need feel secure again
The witnesses evaded
Codify my wasted youth
Everywhere I look I feel the weight

So I don't feel this meaningless again
So wait it out now

Tickle my animal instincts, survive
Capable, sociable, subject, I'm part of the pack

I know a guy, somewhere, whose got a guy, from town, whose knows a guy, from around, whose gotta die

We crave a greater existence, survive
Attainable, modified purpose I'm part of the pack
Citizen of the world

I called my sister’s, cousin, uncle, friend, made sure to trust them time and time again

Oh no he said a bad word

We should burn him at the stake, desecrate his name, spit on him from high horses exaggerate the shame

He's ignorant and vulgar
So evil we can tell, he'll surely rot in hell, a homophobic sociopath a menace to us all
He'll take the fall

The group is never ending
The group grew from decay
The group is darkness father
Heaven selected the truth as pain

    My InterpretationDance Gavin Dance's lyrics have always been terribly difficult to interpret, but I am going to go ahead and take a shot at this one. In my opinion, this song is a criticism of people who spew hate about religious people and their beliefs without trying to understand or even respect their beliefs. At first glance, this song may appear to be saying the direct opposite. However, there are a few lines that support my theory.

    "I am lost
    Need a god"

    A religious person would not be claiming that they need "A GOD", they would saying that they need their one true god. Unless of course they believe in a religion with multiple gods, however these people are few and far between. Therefore, I think that it is just a person who should look into religion for peace and answers, but doesn't.

    "Tickle my animal instincts, survive
    Capable, sociable, subject, I'm part of the pack"

    Many religions believe that humans are separate from animals. I am not saying that all religious people believe in creationism, just that humans are above animals because they can pray and worship. Why would someone who is religious be commenting on their animal side or being part of a pack?

    "Don't have time to meditate the meaning of the rain
    Synchronize our memories til we all think same way"
    I think that meditate is an important word here. It shows that this person has never thought about the rain (or other natural occurrences like this) from a different perspective. It is just a lot easier to believe what they taught you in school (thereby synchronizing everyone's memories) and be done with it.

    "Oh no he said a bad word
    We should burn him at the stake, desecrate his name, spit on him from high horses exaggerate the shame
    He's ignorant and vulgar
    So evil we can tell, he'll surely rot in hell, a homophobic sociopath a menace to us all
    He'll take the fall"

    A major viewpoint of many religions is to be kind to others and accept everyone as they are. Of course, there are those religious zealots who are very homophobic and indeed sociopaths. In my opinion, these are the two very distinct stereotypes that get thrown around about religious people. Therefore, why would a kind and accepting religious person spew that kind of hatred about any person? Why would a zealous religious fanatic be spewing this kind of hate about something that they are?

    With these factors considered, I believe the song is commenting on the fact that non-religious people are now doing the same thing religious people had done for many years - "Desecrate" the name of the non-believers. It is also saying that instead of considering the many viewpoints and belief systems out there, they just assume that everything they've heard and learned is true.

    I personally do not believe in religion, however I have studied the subject to some extent and respect religious beliefs. Some of the things I see other non-religious people do and say to those with religions is horrifying. One example of this is how an Indiana pizza shop owner was forced to close down shop and go into hiding for expressing his religious belief. People even threatened to destroy/burn down his shop. In my opinion, DGD was trying to comment on events like this by basically saying that some non-religious people could really benefit from having god in their life.

    Just my 2 cents though.
