Is Jesus Your Pal? Lyrics

Is Jesus your pal?
Do you call out his name,
When your concience is shivering?

Do you need someone too,
Just like those people who
Find peace in someone's promises?
You sure don't need my promises...

So come and sit on my box,
Enjoy the view of this water,
Where my lifeboat is sinking.

If you open your eyes,
Take a look at this mess,
Could you fake your reflection, child?

If you reach out for more,
You'll find nothing but sorrow.
'Cause knowledge is hollow.
And pride is hard to swallow.

So come and sit on my box,
Take a view of this water,
Where my lifeboat is sinking.

WHAT THE HECK DOES THIS SONG MEAN?!!?

I understand certain lines...but I can't seem to connect the lines into any sort of cohesive meaning.

"Is Jesus your pal? Do you call out his name, when your concience is shivering?"

That obviously is somewhat mocking people who consider themselves to have a friend in Jesus but only turn to him when they are scared or want something.

"Lifeboat is sinking" Something sad.....is happening....

Agh!!! What does it all mean?!

I think these lines refer to how some people acknowledge the absurdity of religion but despite it all they choose to believe in it, and even though sometimes it can be so obvious..(that it isn't real), no one will admit it to themselves and keep on believing.
