If you ever torch your bridges
If you're ever past the starlight
If you're ever unassured
Forever you will burn
As you sleep unearthly grace
Lay Jesus hands upon your face
To this sea you've been shot down
Now find the shore, it can be found
Can be found
Can be found
If you ever crack your small mind
If you're ever much disturbed
If you ever reach the shore
Forever be your turn
As you sleep unearthly grace
Lay Jesus hands upon your face
To this sea you've been shot down
Now find the shore, it can be found
Can be found
Can be found

    General CommentI'm here because of a couple of Disturbed songs and AIC's "Get Born Again". It seems somewhat of a re-occuring theme and is somewhat ambiguous left to many different interpretations. I was just wondering what other people thought of this song and it's religious reference. These artists are amazing thinkers and lyricists, not to mention great musicians.

    General CommentI'm not sure this song is so much about Jesus as it's more about spiritual guidance. Jesus seems like he's being used as a possible example of spiritual guidance, but I don't Cantrell is really dedicating the song specifically to Him.

    My InterpretationI would say it's a song about faith......being shot down in the middle of an ocean and finding the shore is a wonderful metaphor. It seems an impossible task, but if you let go and trust in the waves - it will take you to the shore. That's my take. "It can be found."
