"For You" as written by Stephen Philip Bonnem and Joe Newton....
And I cannot stop shaking because you cannot stop shaking
and these chords they are trembling because your words they are bleeding
And these holes in my hands are for you, just for you
She called out to her maker to now be her savior
My love, these holes in my hands are for you, just for you

    General Commentthis song to me is about a girl who is fuckin sinning alot, hence the christ like references of the holes in the hands,
    because shes sinning and he is dying because of it

    General CommentAnyone else think Jake's old style of vocals sounds better than the shrieking on Jane Doe? When he's screaming here, he sounds possessed.

    General CommentThis song has nothing to do with god you dumb ass's. He's saying I sacrificed so much for this girl and she left me for that spot a second best.

    General Comment"She called out to her maker to now be her savior."
    to me this song is about loving someone so much that you cant be yourself around them and having it tear them apart.
    obviously the girl has hurt jacob somehow that he can't trust her but neither can he leave her, hes in love "my love these holes in my hands are for you. just for you. " almost like the holes are the wounds from their relationship that wont heal
