So now your offering these hand me down beliefs
You offer neither solace nor relief
In a world of hate
Your words hold no weight

So now your promising your Disney religion
Living in your world without sin
But I just don't relate
Your words hold no weight

So just hold your tongue for a second
And spare me your two bit advice
Did God make me blind and give you my eyes?
So just hold your tongue until you can hold my burdens
Your ideas betray your fantasy
Your anecdotes mock reality
Your words hold no weight

So before you go and throw your pearls before swine
Be warned you won't impress the likes of mine
Cause I've heard your debate
Your words hold no weight

So why do they ring in my ear
And challenge my confidence?
They heckle my pride
My medicine never had this taste
My words in your mouth now sound misplaced
Your words hold no weight

So share my pain and bare my wounds with me
Or don't pretend to call it sympathy
But you're so quick mock my misery
So quick to add insult to injury

    General Commenti'm guessing this song is about those hypocritical people who think they are doing you such a favor by trying to console you when you really just need to be left alone.

    General CommentThis is a very harsh and powerful song. Craig's brother is a "Christian Band" and this song is a message to those who would call themselves Christian and are in reality disillusioned bitgots and zealots. These people stand on their soapboxes preaching down to the masses on how they should live, while the song rebutts with lines like "Did God make be blind and give you my eyes?" and "So now you're promising your Disney religion." The moral? If your aim is to convince other people that your religion truly is the way, don't try to project an image of perfection, you lose the ability to relate to your target audience so to speak. We are all imperfect when held to a standard such as God.

    General Commenttheyre website states that they are not a christian band. oh well, doesn't matter much to the masses.

    however i do agree with your interpretations of the lyrics, i hadn't thought of it that way but i think you are right.

    General Commenti believe the actual band isn't Christian, but some/all the members are. at least that's what i understand.

    General CommentI love it when a "Christian" (whether or not 2 of the 4 people were Christian) band comes along and stirs things up a bit...Christian music is getting awfully boring, there's no intelligence or criticism in the lyrics anymore. That's one of the reasons I love Craig's Brother.
