    General CommentI read in an interview that this song was about 11th September and stuff. I don't know if that's true, what does everyone else think?

    General CommentIts true...but in a way it also tells of the way religion makes people do terrible acts in the name of a loving and caring "god".

    General Comment I also heard about the 9-11 tribute thing. It seems to delve into the darkside of religion, and the negative effects of never questioning faith.

    I read on the Roadrunner Records site about Five Pointe O that the frontman has a shamanistic/bhuddist faith, seeing spirituality as a means for self-improvement rather than blind devotion.

    I think it makes sense.

    General CommentI think the singer said he didn't follow any specific faith but more closely identified with the Bhudist aproach to religion, something about taking in different ideas from all religions, or something like that. Don't remember where I heard that but it might've been on Roadrunner's site.

    General Commentthe 9-11 thing isn't true because the song was written and released prior to 9-11. and yes, what has been said in previous posts is true. the song is about the dark side of religion. and yes, Sharon is very skilled...and beautiful. i met Five Pointe O because my sister used to date Tony, the drummer.

    General CommentMan, too bad she left the band. :-( Maybe this means I'll get to see her in some local shows... that'd be the shit.
