well worn wings crumble too tired to forgive and too battered to ever forge tI am the labor. I am this. I hang as your beloved hex. I'll bring the nails and fevers of bad dreams. Nail him. Burden her. Kill You. Bury them. It's all the same. Holding your rope . Try to forget me now. Great leveller, the sky tries to forget my name on days like this.

    General CommentI believe this song deals with the abusurdity of religion during times of intense struggle. And while pondering the instance of god, in some right, you become your own god and your own religion, but still cannot hide the shame you feel from it.

    The person who posted these lyrics are a bit off though.

    General CommentI can only speculate as to the meaning of this song, but what I know for sure is that the portion that begins at 1:15 is amazing.

    Song Meaning"Towing Jehovah" is the title of a book by James Morrow. In the story, God dies and falls into the ocean, and the Vatican hires an oil tanker captain to tug his massive body to the arctic for burial. Hence the line from the song, "Holding your rope. Try to forget me now." He's talking about man having the last laugh over God.
