"Twenty-One Grams" as written by and Dustin Chad Davidson Brent Gerald Rambler....
As I follow you, where will you lead me
To the ends of the world
Or is that just the beginning
I've rolled through villages
And done my best to pass on your name
How much is too much
How far is too far
As I push on and leave everything behind
The front line swears I'm going into battle blind
A life dedicated to what I can't see
Still grasping what I was told to believe

What kind of cruel truth only presents itself
In the moment you die
In the moment you die

The facts are becoming less and less transparent
Constantly mixed with the thoughts of the incoherent
Dig deep, they're hidden beneath centuries of dust and dirt
Covered up by the evolution of the earth
I'm struggling with the blessing of the unseen
It's harder and harder to not be accusing
Continuing to draw the lines of acceptance
I'm trying and trying to translate the evidence

Why do we owe anyone repentance, repentance
While seeking answers to these questions, these questions
Why do we owe anyone repentance, repentance
While seeking answers to these questions, questions

We don't owe, we don't owe
We don't owe, we don't owe
Anyone repentance
We don't owe, we don't owe, repentance

As I follow you, where will you lead me
To the ends of the world, or is that just the beginning

The only time you'll ever know if you chose the right side
Is when you close your eyes for the very last time
Question, all that you knew
Question, It's how you'll find the truth
Question, question
It will only make you stronger
Question, all that you knew
Question, It's how you'll find the truth
Question, question
It will only make you stronger

    General CommentThis is quite an open ended song about religion. It is telling us to ask those questions, not to be afraid, not to be "blind to our faith". Quite a refreshing look at religion from a band that typically has very strong Christian doctrines included in their lyrics.

    Ironically this song is quite hypocritical of their "Marathon" song, which pretty much has the band singing about spending their life trying to find God.

    I do like the lines:

    "What kind of cruel truth only presents itself
    In the moment you die?"

    Does really make you wonder ... billions spend their whole life in preparation of the afterlife (with no certainties). Personally I would hope the gods would be more worried about you living a full and happy life than being so worried about the afterlife and worshiping them.
