Don't just look in the gospels... Aaron has made many references from all throughout the old testament and many even in the minor prophets..

mewithoutYou – In a Sweater Poorly Knit Lyrics 12 years ago
"You made a holy fool of me, and (I bet you ever since?)"

At purple door you could hear quite audibly that it was:

You made a holy fool of me and I've thanked you ever since.

I memorized all the lyrics for the show it was lame. But they played wonderfully.

Anathallo – Hoodwink Lyrics 12 years ago
Someone online posted these lyrics with the first lines being a quote of the officer who invented the gas chamber. If that's the case... the way it's being quoted really adds depth to the song.

The lines

"Even I believe that I have grown something."

It's interesting to hear Matt sing "i believe that I(you've) grown something." he changes it mid word... which is really really interesting.

Anathallo – The Bruised Reed Lyrics 12 years ago
This song is based on a verse in Isaiah, "A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth." Isaiah 42:3[KJV]

And knowing matt he also probaly took some of it from the puritan writer Richard Sibbes with his book The Bruised Reed... which I believe talks about the the suffering of a christian using the metaphor of the Bruised Reed and the Smoking Flax.

Anathallo – Cuckoo Spitting Blood Lyrics 13 years ago
This song somehow reminds me of the story of the Prodigal Son.... with the lines

Since I don't know my father,
I won't be a son.

Followed by:

I hid myself underneath my father
With the robes of a son.

And the whole image of:

I remember when I took the gifts
Asking you for everything,

Twothirtyeight – The Bastard Son And The Spoiled One Lyrics 14 years ago
"I'm dangling from the towers I built to save my life" that has to be one of the most fantastic lines of all time. The part about "kissing you to the tree" is as you have mentioned a judas refererance. What he's saying(less poetically) Is could it be I've played the role of Judas, betraying jesus to die on a tree by a kiss. That symbol of betrayal through a kiss is just bitterly ironical. To think we would betray the God of the world, our creator and saviour through a physical symbol of love is so sickening. It's a brilliant play.

The grateful bastard son is the child who doesn't belong to the father but is accepted anyways. So in that idea we as christians are bastard sons of God, because he took us from the world of sin(which we were born into) and brought us to himself. We all should be grateful bastard sons, not supposed to be there but grateful for the love and acceptance we get.

The song says he's not the grateful bastard son, but the rich and spoiled one... that means he's the son that has been there all along... (Through, perhaps, church or christian upbringing) and yet despite always being a 'child of God'(i know... that's not technically possible... but yeah) he doesn't do anything about it.

It's about getting comfortable with your faith, and realizing your faith is weak. Great song.

Twothirtyeight – The Sticks Are Woven In The Spokes Again Lyrics 14 years ago
Coming back to this, seeing as I wrote that almost a year ago... I think many times when life gets you down, the smallest things come to mean so very much. Something like his chair breaking(if that was all) would seem small and not that important... but all these little things just remind him of how much things are changing and how he's getting old. These are re-occuring themes in thier songs... and I love how they capture it.

Twothirtyeight – This Town Will Eat You Lyrics 14 years ago
This song for me always meant an infinite amount whenever I felt distant from my closest friends. Sometimes life gets to be so much that you lose the relationships and connections that matter the most. This song is by far one of my favorites ever.

Twothirtyeight – This Is Why I Wait Lyrics 14 years ago
It's that coldness after love.... even though you may be over the person you loved you arn't ready to start again. I love those middle lines, "some day swinging doors, throwing light in, will prepare this house to love again." I've never heard this album, but I love all the lyrics. TwoThirtyEight R.I.P.

Dead Poetic – August Winterman Lyrics 15 years ago
Hey! Actually my favorite part of this song is the title. August Winterman. It's the idea of being in August.. summertime... happiness but feeling like it's winter. Think bleak cold summer. Does that make anysense? So it's like the guy who's always in summer's winter. Fighting to find the sun but it's always too cold.

Name Taken – The Safety of Routine Lyrics 16 years ago
Hey, i love Name Taken... there like one of the best punk bands ever... and i've heard MANY a punk band... when i found out they where like all 17 that was CRAZY! But i was just wondering.... are they a christian band?

Twothirtyeight – The Sticks Are Woven In The Spokes Again Lyrics 16 years ago
This song is about how most guys cant really say what they feel and just shrug it off with a joke. The verses are talking about all the things in his life that are going wrong and the chorus talks about how he cant seem to fix his problems. The image of the sticks woven in the spokes is sort of the idea that he cant fix his problems cause he's almost part of the problem...(?).. i dunno it's still a really good song becuase the idea makes sense i just cant explain it to well.

Twothirtyeight – The Bathroom Is a Creepy Place for Pictures of Your Friends Lyrics 16 years ago
This is one of the few love songs i like. Really i love this song. It's quite possibly my favorite song from this album. He is in love and as he just cant quite find the words he gets caught up in this strange image of pictures in a bathroom. It's so brilliantly simple it blows me away. With such strange words and so little it's just an incredible song. You have to hear it to get the full effect. Though i have not yet met a woman you understands this song...

Twothirtyeight – The Hands of Men Lyrics 16 years ago
This was the first song i heard from twothirtyeight. It emcompasses to me the best example of thier writing style. I have read many a review about twothrityeight and it seems you either get thier lyrics or you dont. Some people hate them because the lyrics apear to make no sense what so ever. Check out my thing on "The Bathroom Is A Creepy Place For Pictures Of Your Friends" for more...

From what i can gather this song is about a guy dealing with having someone he loves be in a situation where they might die. All of thier songs have a very 'guy' type of emotions in dealing with different situations. He writes about everything except whats going on. From the way he talks about the nurses and the docters you can tell that isn't what he's talking about. He wants to say what he is really feeling.. and that is fear... but all he can say is have patience with the nurses. I know, being a guy, theres so many times that we just sorta cant just come out and say what we feel. This song is musically the weirdest and most amazing song i've every heard. It's so simple and yet so complex. I love it.

VNV Nation – Carbon Lyrics 16 years ago
This is no doubt my favorite song from the new album. It backround is so amazing and so is the melody. I was disscussing the lyrics with my mom and I figuered it out. The million points of light are the lights in the city. The next few lines talk about the light shining up towards the sky as a sign of how we have put our selves so high. The light he is talking about is electricity. When I first heard the song I thought it was about God, and being a christian I didn't like the song. The line "Monuments in darkness" is the lights are on at night. "Stadning watch untile the sun will rise" how our city lights go off during the day. The song is bout the fact that we have put all our dependance on electricty. Our very society is dependant on it. Y2k scared the dung out of people but that was just comps. Electricity has become the key to our being. And that is "blindess and stupidity". Because to power our houses and to contiue this we have to cut massive forests down and steal all the resources from the earth. This song rocks!!!! Oh and this song really became cool to me when I was at a camp. It was about 11 pm and it was totally dark, I looked accross the lake and all I could see was the lights from three signal towers. The kind you see along hihg ways. With three blinking light. Adn I started singing to my self.
"IN 1000 years what will be our legacy a millon points of light that no one could see."

Our Lady Peace – Consequence Of Laughing Lyrics 16 years ago
I took a deaper meaning from this song. I thought that it was about some one who is afraid to act like themself. They have all these ways of making sure no one finds out. In the corus its talking about how in reality no one is trying to attack him. But some ones knows he's faking it.

Our Lady Peace – Clumsy Lyrics 16 years ago
I've had mixed ideas about this. But the one I find the most ineresting and works well is this: I think that the person who is "clumsy" is being made fun off and is slowly feeling more and more alone. The part about "I'll be waving my hand..." I think that's about how often when we are in a croud and someone is being mocked we sortof blend in and we laugh along. And then when he says no ones around he is talking to the person later and says maybe you need a friend. You will be safe in here, that's when there arn't people around to make fun of him. With the music video we have a smililare idea yet here it seems that the person is drowning in is feelings of loneliness. So I'm not sure. But i like that idea.

Our Lady Peace – Bring Back The Sun Lyrics 16 years ago
My best friend has the new cd nad he said that this song was the worst song on the cd and that it wreaked the cd. So i had to go dl it. I'll buy the new dc soon it looks great. I love this song. I would definately agree with the idea of a relationship gone bad. I think what was happening was that Raine was taking to much controll and that he was trying to hard and crushed others. Wehen he says I'm hanging up my ego. And I want to be your shadow. Saying he wants to be your shadow would be bringing himself back down from his "high and mighty" and sort of humbling himself.

Our Lady Peace – Carnival Lyrics 16 years ago
This song expresses how when we get depressed or when something in life gets us down even the smallest htings suddely annoy us. Like how when you are in a bad mood suddenly everything becomes a huge problem. I think the yoga class for cats is sortof the dumb stupid thing that sticks in your head. But in the end when everything goes back to normal you'll be ok.
