Rejoice my soul how long will you wait
Rejoice my soul how long will you fear
I long to touch your face
May I
The sun is falling down again
Jesus I hope you're coming back soon

    General CommentOkay,every single fucking person, regardless of religious affiliation, has their right to believe what any song means. So fuck anyone here who is telling me what this song is about. Its okay if you want to say "I think this song is about Jesus" but when you say "this song is about Jesus, how can it not be?" that's when I get pissed off. Open your god damn (that's right I used the lords name in vane) single minded eyes! Song meanings are not factual, its all oppinionated. That's fine if you are religious and find this song religious, but know that there are other people in this world who do not believe in god (me).

    Anyway, I love Mineral. I don't belibe in god, and I find no religious meanings in all of their songs regardless of what some people want me to believe. Yes I can see how some may see their songs as religious, there are obvious hints and shit, but personaly, I find deeper meanings than god in their songs (JUST MY OPPINION).

    When I first read these lyrics I definately didn't think it had anything to do with Jesus... Its all how you precieve it...

    And lagwagon182, you're right. Jesus isn't comming back... =)

    General CommentWhy would someone want to take out the divine aspects of mineral's songs?

    Not everyone believes in Jesus Christ.

    General Commenthere's an interesting piece of trivia. Via Dolorosa is latin for "Way of Suffering" or "Way of Grief". It's a street in Jerusalem believed to be the same street that Christ walked down on his way to be crucified

    General CommentOh...My stars, guys. For the last time. SIMPSON STATED IN MANY INTERVIEWS THAT HE DID NOT HAVE CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY IN MIND WHEN WRITING HIS SONGS.

    My InterpretationIt's obviously about missing a person very much, whether that person is gone or still around you. I feel like he wants to search contact with that person but he's too afraid, because he thinks another disappointment will follow. I think deep inside he longs for happines but he knows he shouldn't. He just hopes that the person will come back to him because he knows he could never do it by himself.
    "Jesus I hope you're coming back soon" I think this is the best line. The "jesus" just expresses the suffering and makes it sound more pleading. Every moment alone becomes more unbearable. That's why it's called dolorosa. It's a long and painfull way without the person you love.
