I got a job for the Salvation Army
Come and find my
Come and save my soul
I got a job for the Salvation Army
Come and find my
Come and save
My soul got lost along the way
My soul got lost I cannot say
"May be down, but never out"
I got a job for the Salvation Army
Come and find my
Come and save
Got a statue of my heart inside my chest
Got a statue of my heart inside my
Dropped it just to see if it would break
But I'm picking up the pieces
And I'm saving everyone
I'm saving everyone
"May be down, but never out"
My soul got lost along the way
My soul got lost I cannot say
"May be down, but never out"
Got a statue of my heart inside my chest
Got a statue of my heart inside my
Dropped it just to see if it would break
I got a job for the Salvation Army
Ringing a bell
The world's attached to strings
That pull us to the sun
Where we'll burn for what we've done
Where we'll burn for what we've done
I'm saving everyone
I'm saving everyone
Ringing a bell
Ringing a bell

    General Commenti imagine the protagonist of the song having burnt himself out helping others, and has been left emotionally drained and cynical.

    General Commenti can agree with the cynicism of the song. but i'll add that i see it as a request, or a plea for that good feeling of being drawn again to the things he knows to be dear to his heart. "may be down but not out, my soul got lost along the way" tells me he is expressing a loss of direction and struggling with issues concerning this world vs. the next world. that which is temproary vs. eternal.
