They said that he’d come down the mountain, up and
Come and take control
They said that he’d come down the mountain, up and
Come and take control

All the same, you sit and close your arms and pray
Moderation in all action must rise above and take its place don’t you know?

All the same, you don’t really know me
All the same, you don’t sit and hold me
All the same, you don’t hear, console me
All the same, you don’t really know me

(repeat)

They said that he’d come down the mountain, up and
Come and take control
They said that he’d come down the mountain, up and
Come and take control

All the same, you sit and close your arms and pray
Moderation in all action must rise above and take its place don’t you know?

All the same, you don’t really know me
All the same, you don’t sit and hold me
All the same, you don’t hear, console me
All the same, you don’t really know me

(repeat)

(bridge)

They said that he’d come down the mountain, up and
Come and take control
They said that he’d come down the mountain, up and
Come and take control

All the same, you don’t really know me
All the same, you don’t sit and hold me
All the same, you don’t hear, console me
All the same, you don’t really know me

(repeat)

    General CommentA friend told me the beat and tempo remind her of me, which is good because this song has a really awesome sound. It's a good thing the words dont. that would suck

    General Commenti think the lyrics are a bit wrong.
    'All the same, you sit and close your eyes and pray' and
    'All the same, you don’t sit and hold me
    All the same, you don’t really know me
    All the same, you don’t hear, console me
    All the same, you don’t really know me '

    overall this song is really good! same as the whole albulm, even if they are xtian.

    General CommentYeah, good on them... Im sick of bands that try to be cool by dissing religion, but then again bands like creed and POD seem to try to sell god (*cough*guy sabastian*) but then theres bands like Antiskeptic and Underoath that use god in more of a down to earth way...good on them.

    General CommentDunno about the songs, but an "antiskeptic" message sounds like a really bad idea to me, skeptism is just questioning things to find out if they are real. Otherwise we'd go around beliving anything someone just told us. (Which is all too true it seems...)

    It's like saying antiscience...

    General CommentHow is "antiskeptic" lilke saying "antiscience"? they are called antiskeptic because they are not skeptical about what they believe in, God, and what they read, the bible. how is that a bad idea?

    General Commenti think maybe this song is kind of about christians who don't live by what they teach

    They said that he’d come down the mountain, up and
    Come and take control
    They said that he’d come down the mountain, up and
    Come and take control

    All the same, you sit and close your arms and pray
    Moderation in all action must rise above and take its place don’t you know?

    All the same, you don’t really know me
    All the same, you don’t sit and hold me
    All the same, you don’t hear, console me
    All the same, you don’t really know me


    what do you guys reckon? anyway yeah really catchy song & awesome band.
    no ones really talking about the lyrics in the song...
