Underoath – In Completion Lyrics 10 years ago
This song is one of my favorites of all time and will stay there for a while...
I love the chorus so much.

I'm not exactly sure what the song is about... but it has some straight forward stuff inside there.. it's some kind of story.. picture yourself singing it and you'll find what Spencer means in those words.

This Providence – My Beautiful Rescue Lyrics 10 years ago
"Romantically phrased" throws out that it's a Christian thought? The concept of the song is a full Christian song... it could very well be a worship song.. worship is pretty much all romantic music towards God.. or at least should be. :/ The reason everyone "turns" music made by Christians into bible verses is because they were written that way. I could very well say that a non-Christians turn every secular song into such worldly meanings... since most of them ARE. ~

Relient K – This Is The End Lyrics 11 years ago
The first part is that he's got Jesus to keep him from being fully alone.. or feeling it at least.. The healing hand..

I wanna know what the take me home part is too..
maybe he mentions his father because he left..

mewithoutYou – My Exit, Unfair Lyrics 11 years ago
nonono.. this goes back to the lines before it...
"I said 'water' expecting the word would satisfy my thirst"

It's like.. trying to feed 5000 with 2 loaves of bread and a couple fish before you ever even opened the Bible and prayed for your cold to go away.. learning the basics of Christianity(which is being 'like Christ') before trying to perform miracles.

Relient K – Softer To Me Lyrics 11 years ago
hehe.. bad timing since the drummer just left.. but w/e.. I'm pretty sure it wasn't because of bad aura.. although I heard Matt T isn't that nice.. but that's Gossip and I must know for myself.. and also.. as blink's stuff gets 'better'.. Relient K's new CD blows it outta the water.. I love the new one so muchh.

Relient K – Softer To Me Lyrics 11 years ago
Well spoken, sir... I love ex-athiests... haha. I was never an athiest by name because of my parents but never believed wholeheartedly Christian doctrines because I had never experienced them or saw the importance.. but now that I do I appreciate much more in life.. and it's just a breath of air..

"I believe in Christianity as I believe in the sunrise, not because I can see it, but by it, I see everything else..." -CS Lewis.

Relient K – Softer To Me Lyrics 11 years ago
There's something that needs to be added here... All of the lyrics are permissible(short of sin.. which cuts out so much..) but what needs to be added to songs that are depressing.. or albums that are really depressing is the hope in life... is the hope in each situation.. There's gotta be more music put out that tells of a situation and says that God can help or did help him/her out of that hellhole of a place... the trial that became the testimony..

So.. Jesus music doesn't have to be worship music(meaning.. I love Jesus, he loves me... so on and so on).. It could be praising through describing an event and Victory over it...

Relient K – Softer To Me Lyrics 11 years ago
Mmm.. (Creed's not really Christian, btw.. they rode the ride like many others..)

The reason /I/ don't listen to many of the 'good' bands you mentioned is because of such depth I'll be missing.. all the text you placed that were in CAPS was just mindless babble.. much like too many of the songs by those bands... (green day couldn't find a way into their fans hearts anymore so they bashed government.... Green day wouldn't last a day in politics.. they'll just say bomb everyone and all of their fans would scream YEAH!!.. even though that includes them..)

Christian band have potential to be much more than they're cliched to be. God can save anyone from any circumstance through faith and His grace... there are so many stories that could be told through music but too many bands choose to 'water it down' because they want more fans...
Nowadays you'll find a handful of Christian bands that are a million times better lyrically and musically than the junk so many people are filling their minds with..
(As Cities Burn, mewithoutYou, Switchfoot, Underoath, Relient K('s new album is awesome), Search The City, Oh, Sleeper, Emery.. and probably more that I haven't found..)

Relient K – Marilyn Manson Ate My Girlfriend Lyrics 11 years ago
wow. I believe the focus is off everywhere.. this whole thing about age within this comment area.. barack obama saying he's christian /and/ muslim(>__>) ... Being a Christian is being 'like Christ'... No one can obtain the life that he led way back when.. but we're to be as much as possible like Him.. and that's why the 'Christian' has been looked down upon by society.. I think that 'Christianity' (of America) deserves it because of so much hypocrisy.. so many people who carry their crosses on their necks just to have a sense in their mind that they're going to heaven... It's not just Catholics.. It's not just Baptists Christians or any other denomination... it's not just Britney Spears... it's everyone who's not living just to love others the way Jesus did, for the Creator.

Relient K – I Don't Need a Soul Lyrics 11 years ago
he's talking about his love... meaning the actual thing... 'love' dying... within his relationship.. so it makes sense that people are getting that 'death' vibe from the album.. it's supposed to connect with his emotions about the whole thing..

submissions
Relient K – I Don't Need a Soul Lyrics 11 years ago
I think it's fully about the relationship because of the "without you I'm still whole, you and life remain beautiful" ... and the hospital thing is just a metaphor..

Relient K – Savannah Lyrics 11 years ago
in the epilogue of Savannah... the track afterwards... does he say "Everything made sense when you're(you were) with me..." I heard that the last 3 times I listened to that electronic part.... It just.. it seems soooo sad to me.. ):... hm... Hope he feels 'normal again' soon..

Relient K – Candlelight Lyrics 11 years ago

submissions
Relient K – Candlelight Lyrics 11 years ago
This song is quite a bit better than must have done something right and mood rings.. I've been there since their first album and this song is one of the best they've ever made..

this album is tied with their first album for the most creative and fun... and... awesome.. haha..

the new drummer adds much to the sound but the whole band just sounds a lot more mature now.. it's good listenin'. ^_^

Underoath – Anyone Can Dig A Hole But It Takes A Real Man To Call It Home Lyrics 11 years ago
This song is easily the most easily related to myself in my mind... I felt these words vicariously when I turned on my mp3 and played it..

submissions
Underoath – A Fault Line, A Fault of Mine Lyrics 11 years ago
I get what you're sayin'.. the music isn't quite as intriguing.. it wasn't the underoath that brought me into loving heavier music... but lyrically.. these songs are a masterpiece.. great in communicating what so many people go through... I personally get chills with Anyone Can Dig a Hole.... . . 'cause I'm seen as a leader in many cases but I really do just feel like a mess.

submissions
Underoath – A Fault Line, A Fault of Mine Lyrics 11 years ago
no. when it's underoath, it's about God and his struggles. That's their theme. That's their style... Don't bring what people bring to Switchfoot's song meanings.. to Mae's, to Anberlin's, to As Cities Burn's(rofl..), to mewithoutYou's... underoath is about as straightforward as As Cities Burn and mewithoutYou in their Christian aspect in each album.. it's actually quite beautiful

Mae – Embers and Envelopes (2008) Lyrics 11 years ago
I say.. what a bad cover-up.. They're trying too hard to not be Christian now. It's slightly irritating.. Whatever pleases the fans, I suppose.

Mm.. It's like if Chevelle re-did Point #1 or Grab Thy Hand and in Grab Thy hand he replaces "God, How I long to grab thy hand" with "Friend, How I long to grab thy wrist" or something.. That is how dumb this feels to me right now. =/

Mae – Anything Lyrics 11 years ago
'keep my music agnostic'... ha.
wish I could go around all of the secular music meanings and say 'gosh.. keep my music Christian, mann.'

It's just not something you say.

and This is a place for interpretation of the songs.. what you get out of the song.. so you can't just throw off someone's comment on a song with "I don't think this song is Jesus music" or "I don't like that you Christians always bring up God.".. so they see that the song could help them in a spiritual aspect... What's so wrong with that...?

I think if a song is making a world a better place for many people's minds then let it be...
And on that note.. get to know some true whole hearted Christians who want to do nothing but simply love the world as Jesus did... then be able to say that Christianity is a heist and idiotic.. It's something that changes hearts.. and shouldn't ever be taken lightly.

submissions
Mae – The Ocean Lyrics 11 years ago
I don't think you need to 'say' you're a "christian band' to be able to write some spiritual things... It's a part of life for many many people and artists like to write about their lives... soo.. the reason I see this song as a very God-desperate song
( I hate that everyone else in this forum uses "religious" for religious just means going through rituals.. it's nothing extremely personal and intense)
are the lines :

you come over unannounced.
silence broken by your voice in the dark.

This is the very feeling you'd get if you had a true experience with God... it's like a voice that shatters the darkness... just pure light.

Paramore – Turn It Off Lyrics 11 years ago
Ugh.. "I'll turn it off, in all my spite."

Hm.. It's.. very human... which makes this song very personal.. but I don't think that's a mature way of being a Christian publicly.. I wouldn't want to be harassed about my Christianity either but to state this in a song..? Mm.. I mean.. I suppose this song could relate to many many people about how they believe and get harassed about it... The chorus makes this song better, definitely.

submissions
Paramore – Turn It Off Lyrics 11 years ago
The chorus is the easiest part to interpret as religious.. That hit the bottom part means that when you have nothing else.. when you're up against a wall.. when the pressure's all the way through.. that desperation is the perfect place to be to find the true hope in all of the mess in this world and that's when it's easiest to seek God cause you have nowhere else to turn... it's just tough to keep that complex after things turn out better.

As Cities Burn – Bloodsucker Pt. 2 Lyrics 11 years ago
seriously...? ... This album by ACB probably saved thousands of people. They're working to turn hearts to Jesus and they did just that with the lyrics and music in this band. If you dont like this music, Don't comment here, don't listen to it. The ones who have the ear for this music are the ones who will benefit.

As Cities Burn – The Widow Lyrics 11 years ago
The fun difference between this song and John Mayer's is the beautiful ending with that Cody can't help but love his father... and can still go on loving other people because of God's grace... mm... God's number one goal and command for us is only to spread love throughout the world... It's quite ironic that a huge percentage of high school students and college students -hate- us 'Christians'...

Yeah. I love this song.. pretty easy to understand.. and it's something that relates to so many people...

submissions
mewithoutYou – Timothy Hay Lyrics 11 years ago
That makes sense, actually..
It might be something to get out of this song besides my insight(which is that us Christians are tired of monotonous religious everyday lives and rituals and want to pursue and dive into the all of the relationship with Jesus and wholeness of the holy spirit.

mewithoutYou – Timothy Hay Lyrics 11 years ago
Hm? Noone's got it, yet?
I had this understood a while back...
but.. well.. here we go.. I'll give my interpretation cause it was something I related to at the time the CD came out.

He is "tired of the Timothy Hay"
Timothy Hay is a very general diet and basically what farm animals eat all the time...

He wants more out of life and what he's living for.. the mundane, monotonous, daily routines aren't what he wants.

There are many many stories mixed in to give the song some flow but that's pretty much the point.

submissions
Oh, Sleeper – COMMISSIONED BY KINGS Lyrics 11 years ago
Hmm.. I've been seeing many people say that the new songs are about the final fight against hell..
I don't think that's their only message. seriously.
These songs are speaking many many more things about current issues and his mental state and the vices he has to work through... we all work through.

Chevelle – Antisaint Lyrics 11 years ago
I'd rather take it as a piece of literature.. and he does very nicely with diction...
He's a good poet in creating the image he wants to send out.

submissions
Chevelle – Antisaint Lyrics 11 years ago
I like this interpretation.

I don't think it's about Christianity like HomieC says.. The band is too hateful and they curse in the very essence of cursing someone(not just throwing out cuss words for the fans).

submissions
Future of Forestry – If You Find Her Lyrics 11 years ago
"ask her heart to come"
This line wouldn't fit in a love song from a human to a human.
This is indefinitely God talking to a believer about a girl that He loves(because he loves all of us and has made us beautiful in different ways.)
It's definitely what I got from the song... especially cause it's in a worship album for me.. it fit perfectly in.

submissions
Paramore – Ignorance Lyrics 11 years ago
Not at all.
Fences was way different..
Fences started with a B scale playing on the bass with the drums doing some sort of jazzy thing...
This song starts with guitars doing some power strumming with strong intricate drums all throughout...

If the album is just as good as this song.. It'll be pretty awesome..
They're musicianship is getting better and better.. and I hope they have more songs like We Are Broken and My Heart... if you get what I'm saying. ..
(desperate songs.. in the most desperate times... they touch me the most.)

Emery – Listening To Freddy Mercury Lyrics 11 years ago
Homosexuality is mentioned many times in the Bible as something corrupt. It's just as distasteful in God's eyes as murder. Romans 1:26-27 refers to this act which is "against nature". and Leviticus 18:22 calls it an abomination... I believe God has given us free choice but we've got to be wise with our decisions and not do anything in sin and hate. To be a Christian is to be like Christ and to follow after God's Heart.

submissions
Emery – Listening To Freddy Mercury Lyrics 11 years ago
The main thing I like this song is this part
"(To see if it’s right or wrong to listen to this song, I don’t want you too)
(And see if you’re okay with all the words I say; it can’t be this way)"

amazing. I always get into stupid arguments about how a band is Christian and this band is Christian.. and haha. always funny when someone says a band is "more" Christian.. xD ok.

well.. these two lines made me respect Emery a bit more..

As Cities Burn – '84 Sheepdog Lyrics 11 years ago
Yeah.. Being 'anti-church' is not beneficial at all.. cause that would be in hatred. And.. that's a no-no. haha. but it's when churches get too structured and ritualistic.. and just not moving in any way, that's when things get bad for a church... when it gets too much like an organization...

As Cities Burn – Into the Sea Lyrics 11 years ago
Well.. It was mentioned earlier that in the verse in Matthew, Jesus says that you can say to the mountain, 'throw yourself into the sea'. so I mean.. The song basis was that verse.. that's why he used mountains.
