"Is Jesus your Pal?" as written by Stephan Stephensen, Magnus Gudmundsson, Hafdis Huld Thrastardottir, Stefan Arni Thorgeirsson, Baldur Stefansson, Daniel Agust Haraldsson, Birgir Thorarinsson, Magnus Thor Jonsson, Sigurdur Kjartansson, Orri Jonsson and Dagur Ka...
Is Jesus your pal?
Do you call out his name
When your conscience is shivering?

Do you need someone too
Just like those people who
Find peace in someone's promises?
(You sure don't need my promises...)

So come and sit on my box
Enjoy the view of this water
Where my lifeboat is sinking

If you open your eyes
Take a look at this mess
Could you fake your reflection, child?

If you reach out for more
You'll find nothing but sorrow
'Cause knowledge is hollow
And pride is hard to swallow

So come and sit on my box
Take a view of this water
Where my lifeboat is sinking

    General CommentWHAT THE HECK DOES THIS SONG MEAN?!!?

    I understand certain lines...but I can't seem to connect the lines into any sort of cohesive meaning.

    "Is Jesus your pal? Do you call out his name, when your concience is shivering?"

    That obviously is somewhat mocking people who consider themselves to have a friend in Jesus but only turn to him when they are scared or want something.

    "Lifeboat is sinking"
    Something sad.....is happening....

    Agh!!! What does it all mean?!

    General Commentvery good track. and the best explanation about this is song is that emiliana plays the role of the devil. and i think the thing that makes track is contrast, a very eeiry & moody feel with a subtle slow beat and then emiliana's voice on top. and emiliana has a very light and very girlish voice, and where she is given the role of playing the devil. it's just genius.
