"Move Me" as written by and Jerry Gaskill Ty Tabor....
Keeper of mysteries
River of Tears
After it's over
And after the years are passing
Never asking
What about miracles
Faith in the space
It keeps me guessing
With nothing to hate
I am lonely
And unholy

Everything matters
A prayer when you're scared
Boarded up windows
And broken down chairs before morning
Heard it storming
(God can you hear me...
God can you see me cry...die)
Handbook of rituals... hands in the air
More than a give up... big as a care
If you're daring
And you're sharing

Move me
God, can you hear me cry
God, can you see me die
God can you move me
Move me and move me again

Out of the planet and into the silence
Over the mountains in search of a crisis to find me
If it should be
Once I was told there's a race to be won
Pointed the finger straight into the sun to be blinded and I minded
(God can you hear me...
God can you see me cry...die)
Wish I could whisper how much I need you
After tomorrow I might forget to
If it's only from a story
Keeper of mysteries
River of tears
After it's over
And after the years are passing
Never asking

Move me
God, can you hear me cry
God, can you see me die
God can you move me
Move me and move me again

    General CommentJust like the rest of the King's X songs on here, it's a shame no one has commented on this song. This one's just so very beautiful...

    To me, it seems like a cry for help/answers from God. Dug's faith history seems pretty well documented, so this theory seems like a probable one. The first stanza seems to be a direct address to God, basically asking if he's really there ("faith in the space"), which seems to be pretty well-reinforced by the chorus.

    The next stanza seems to be basically a description of the depths from which the speaker is calling, with the last lines seeming to be images tied to Christianity ("handbook of rituals" = Bible, "hands in the air" = people throwing their hands up in praise).

    Then we have the chorus which simply (I use that term lightly, as it is so emotive and powerful in the actual song) seems to be a desperate cry for answers/response for God, a plea for God to "move" the speaker into regaining that emotion he once had for his faith.

    The beginning of the next stanza might be a reference to "Out of the Silent Planet," but I don't actually have much knowledge of the actual book, so I'm just going on the wording. The next line about "the race to be won" and "the finger pointed straight into the sun" to me seems like a reference to Heaven, as in he was told that life is a journey and his ultimate goal should be to reach Heaven. However, in the next line, it seems as though he had been "blinded" by his faith or other members of the faith, though I'm not sure if "blinded" means he became like a blind, unquestioning sheep to his faith or just that his journey had come to harm him or try him too greatly.

    All in all, this is a truly beauitful song. While I'm not a big fan of some of the songs on "Ogre Tones" that come across as shots at Dug's faith or religion in general, songs like this that express such deep internal struggle and questioning are truly beautiful. It seems to tell the story of someone who is desperately calling out to God for answers, hoping for some sort of reaffirmment.
