The Chariot – Die Interviewer (I Am Only Speaking in German) Lyrics 15 years ago
I think the line about "choking on someone else's blood and the fingerprints of God" is another way of referring to being washed in the blood of Christ. in other words: finding salvation. I also think the rest of the song could possibly be about sharing his testimony with someone.

The Chariot – Before There Was Atlanta, There Was Douglasville Lyrics 15 years ago
I think this song is about how so much of humanity is on the path to destruction - "step by step to the grave" - but when they are offered something better, they reject it - "I sing a new song falling on deaf ears".

submissions
Evergreen Terrace – Look Up At The Stars And You're Gone Lyrics 16 years ago
I think this song is about his frustration with mankind's sinful nature and dissatisfaction with our fallen world, but how that is outweighed by his desire to serve God.

Norma Jean – Astronimicoronary (In Reference to a Sinking Ship) Lyrics 16 years ago
I think that in part, this song is saying that the Gospel- that Jesus died for our sins and rose again- is a very simple message, but we struggle to accept it because it doesn't fit our logic, and it's not fancy enough. and despite our ability to understand a great deal of the world through science and reason, we still have to stand in wonder at the power of God.

Norma Jean – Coffinspire: Multitudes, Multitudes in the Valley of Decision Lyrics 16 years ago
I think this is about the prophet Joel's prediction of the destruction of Israel by God. only here, Cory is comparing Israel to all who are unfaithful to God, and will share in the destruction. there is even a scripture reference to Joel 3:13-16 at the end of the song.

submissions
The Chariot – The Bullet Never Lies, and Time Will Prove All Things (An Allegory of Unfaithful Jerusalem) Lyrics 16 years ago
I think this song is comparing America to Biblical Israel. often in the Old Testament, the nation of Israel is referred to as "her", and were also consistently unfaithful to God. I think the "like mother, like daughter" line is where he draws the connection to America. not to mention where he comes right out and says "hello America".

submissions
The Chariot – If Wishes Were Horses, More Beggars Would Ride Them Lyrics 16 years ago
I think he's simply tired of the pain of this world and wishing Christ would just return so we can spend eternity with God.

submissions
The Chariot – And Then, Came Then Lyrics 16 years ago
you may have a point about lyrics being left out, Childe. it's common for Josh to either slur his screaming together so much that stuff gets left out, or at least appears to be left out.

Showbread – Sampsa Meets Kafka Lyrics 16 years ago
yeah, I read that story a few years ago. pretty flipping depressing I have to say. to expand on ames' explanation, Gregor's family flips when he turns into a giant bug and they start treating him very cruelly until he eventually dies of "loneliness". I think the song is quite a witty response to Kafka's theme. I think the fact that it is so short really drives home the simplicity of the song's argument.

Showbread – Stabbing Art To Death Lyrics 16 years ago
in the original version of this song on the album "Life, Kisses, and Other Wasted Efforts", the second verse is about twice as long. it inlcudes these lines:

No scalpel, pill or stitch,
no religious sales pitch
will ever bring the art that's dying back.
and so we are the heirs,
of this glowing lack of care
our hearts in one discord we all cry out
for blood and spit we clap,
the amps are feeding back
my heart is filled with the one to whom I shout

this song is fairly straightfoward, though I think there is a bit more to it than zanebob has suggested. I think the main focus of the song (especially referring back to the title) is that God gave us art in order to further glorify and worship Him. however, we have warped His gift and used it for our own self glorification and personal gain. I think Josh is crying out the desperate need to destroy the current mode of thinking (that art belongs to us, not God) and return to true worship.

Showbread – Matthias Replaces Judas Lyrics 17 years ago
beautifully straightfoward declaration of our dependence on the grace of God.

submissions
Showbread – Mouth Like A Magazine Lyrics 17 years ago
I agree with ametheamazing; this song is about how destructive gossip, or just speech in general, can be. also, I think the song is saying that such talk can appear elegant and full of truth, but in reality it's nothing but filth.

The Chariot – Someday, in the Event That Mankind Actually Figures Out What It Is That This World Revolves Around, Thousands of People Are Going to Be Shocked and Perplexed to Find Out That It Was Not Them. Sometimes This Includes Me. Lyrics 17 years ago
I think the title pretty much says it all. I think that the actual lyrics are trying to convey the idea that Josh is going to have no regrets when his life is over because he held nothing back and (this part I'm inferring) because he lived his life for God.

submissions
The Chariot – And Then, Came Then Lyrics 17 years ago
pretty straightfoward message about the return of Christ. also, on the full length album, the last line is "the civilians panic".

submissions
The Chariot – The Company, the Comfort, the Grave Lyrics 17 years ago
I definitely agree that this song is aimed at hypocritical Christians; people who claim Christ as their Lord, but don't live it out at all. "your hands are tied to blind men..." is a way of saying it's the blind leading the blind.

submissions
Society's Finest – Marshall Reality Lyrics 17 years ago
yeah, this is about a guy (tyler) who stubbornly refuses to accept truth; that Jesus is the water of life. this Biblical metaphor is cleverly adapted for the song.

Fear Before – The 20th Century Was Entirely Mine Lyrics 17 years ago
the empty rotting ship is a metaphor for a shallow person who looks good on the outside but will soon meet their end.

Fear Before – On The Bright Side, She Could Choke Lyrics 17 years ago
actually they posted the lyrics pretty much exactly the way they're written in the cd booklet. I think this song is pretty obviously about a girl who loves to manipulate this guy who's willing to do anything to please her. the harder he tries, the more she tears him down. the singer is hoping that in the end she'll get punished for it.

Nora – Nobody Takes Pictures Of The Drummer Lyrics 17 years ago
I take pictures of the drummer all the time. seriously though, this song is sweet and I think it's talking about bands or artists that have ceased writing any lyrics that mean anything.

Haste the Day – Song Of Faith Lyrics 17 years ago
I think he's saying that it's easy to try and do things on your own, without God, but it is so painful away from Him.

As I Lay Dying – Forever Lyrics 17 years ago
I definitely agree w/ dawnofreckoning. I saw that show and As I Lay Dying destroyed everyone else.

I think he might be talking about the moment when he first gave his life to Christ. and how you simply can't explain in words the power of the Holy Spirit coming into your heart.

submissions
mewithoutYou – The Ghost Lyrics 17 years ago
youwithoutme is dead on in my opinion. he's obviously been trying to tell this girl about Christ, but to no avail. look at "we talked about forever and all our other useless words". the girl simply doesn't care, see "it's the devil I suppose, but it doesn't matter much to me".

submissions
mewithoutYou – Nice and Blue Lyrics 17 years ago
it's aaron, not erin. (he's a boy).

I would say this is a little bit about a broken relationship w/ a girl, but I think it's more of how he lost his way w/ God due to the girl. I think he's saying that when we turn away from God, we can't accomplish anything ("I missed what I was supposed to learn"). the only lesson we can learn away from God is that we need Him ("all I learned about was missing you").

submissions
mewithoutYou – Bullet to Binary Lyrics 17 years ago
it should be "don't you tell us about your suffering" not "talk to us about".

I think this song, like many of their songs, is about having a deep regret for a love that has gone. and how even though the girl has tried to move on, she will never be able to forget the time they had together.

submissions
Showbread – Bleeding Generation Lyrics 17 years ago
one of the best live bands EVER. how could they not w/ 2 singers?

this is about our culture's and our generation's values being meaningless. we are slowing dying spiritually and we need a wakeup call.

Norma Jean – The Shotgun Mwssage Lyrics 17 years ago
wow, this general guy is freaking dead on for every song. way to go. I definitely agree that this song is from Christ's perspective. He is so tired of watching people twist His message and use it for their own gain. He died for everyone cause He loves us, not so we could have power over other people.

submissions
Norma Jean – The Entire World Is Counting On Me, And They Don't Even Know It Lyrics 17 years ago
it's not about being pissed off, it's about wanting to have nothing to do with the world and preparing for the end of days when Christ returns and destroys the current world we live in.

Norma Jean – The "anni Hilat" Ion Lyrics 17 years ago
it's about how God can destroy satan's hold over you if you let Him.

submissions
Norma Jean – Pretty Soon, I Don't Know What, But Something Is Going To Happen Lyrics 17 years ago
about not only how we waste time, but how if we start living appropriately, we can achieve great things for the kingdom of God ("OR fragile time can start eternity").

submissions
Norma Jean – Memphis Will Be Laid To Rest Lyrics 17 years ago
yeah, the chariot is freaking sweet. and the new new NJ singer, corey is a lot closer to Josh than Brad, so cheer up...

I totally agree w/ everything MediokrityKills said about the meaning. though I think the "lower your defenses, lower the casket" and "open the door open your grave" lines are both parallels. lowering your defenses around sin is like lowering your own casket, and opening the door to sin is digging your own grave. but yeah, it seems to be about a relationship w/ a girl that caused him to stumble in his faith.

Norma Jean – I Used To Hate Cell Phones But Now I Hate Car Accidents Lyrics 17 years ago
this song is an attack on people who spend their whole lives chasing after wealth, and don't even realize how they are headed for disaster.

submissions
Norma Jean – Creating Something Out Of Nothing, Only To Destroy It Lyrics 17 years ago
I think this song is about how powerful and destructive words can be. and possibly how when witnessing to someone that just trying to win an argument doesn't solve anything.

submissions
Norma Jean – Face:Face Lyrics 17 years ago
this song is definitely about lust. read proverbs 30:15. it's like the first line almost verbatim.
