"Sol Invictus" as written by and Michael Patton Bill David Gould....
I'm coming Lord, I'm on my way
Worshiping at the altar of know why
Can't remember which God is my wine
Can't repent if I'm wrong impartial
Empty rituals, trinkets and fossils
And now Lord, I'm on my way (my way)
Amen

Peace ain't coming our way
But the sun keeps burning my face
Where's my faith?
My blasphemy

Keep singin', Lord, I'm on my way
Home

Floorboards and the ceilings are creaking
And the roof is old and leaking
But looking up high to the heavens
How can we declare our independence
From evolution and penance
(Our way)

Sin ain't coming our way
But the sun keeps burning my face
When's my faith renewing today?
I believe in something, I think
Where's my faith
My monastery

    My InterpretationThe title is referencing the old sun god of the Roman Empire, a time when Christianity was still persecuted and seen as a pagan religion, while natural phenomenon were still praised, to an extent, before scientific discoveries could explain them.

    The song is beginning to question the merits and rituals associated with the sun god, Sol Invictus. The first verse and second verse contemplate the worship of the sun god only to see that peace is not coming, despite the fact that the “sun keeps burning my face.” So while their faith is rooted in something so tangible they see everyday (the sun), doubt is creeping up, but they press on, looking for a renewed faith...

    Faith (or the foundations of it – the home) seem to be deteriorating further by the 4th verse and it seem they are looking for new answers to believe in.

    The fifth verse is another state of confusion as they are still torn between the sun god and possibly looking to renew that faith, which is not coming, however much they want to believe in it.
