"Stained Glass And Marble" as written by and Principe/mcilrath/barnes/wleklinski....
Come warm your hands on hellfire and brimstone
Empty the pockets of the innocent victim
Bound by fear
We misplace trust

In your voice
Inside these walls

Convincing us we have no choice
Gaze upon these stare of naïveté
Two thousand years replaced
With eighteen inches of our faith
Bound by fear
We misplace trust

In your voice
Inside these walls
Convincing us we have no choice

And this reflection
On where the message lies
Stained glass and marble
Or somewhere deep inside
(Somewhere deep inside)
This message you will only find deep inside
To read these words
You keep looking down
But in the sky
This message is written in the clouds

    General Commentthis song is about opening the views on belief
    and the blind trust religions get that they dont deserve

    General CommentNo Rise Against is NOT an athiest band. They do belive in God. This song is targeting all of the Catholic churches who are too busy taking money and advertising themselves (read these words, you keep looking down) instead of focus on what they really need to, which is God (but in the sky, this message is written in the clouds)

    General CommentRise Against is religious? oh crap. I hate most religious people.

    And, Skatingwithgod... Oh no no... don't try to make us non-religious people believe in god. that "god loves you" bullshit won't work for us. Life is not that simple. I wish it was.

    My OpinionI have to agree with Skatingwithgod... his interpretation seems to be more logical. A lot of you guys automatically see "Stained Glass and Marble" and automatically think "Oooooh they're atheist, woohoo yeah!" But if you look deeper into the lyrics, it's really going after the Church... the last few lines clearly bring that out.
