Words of high cost (you spit a curse at my name)
When thoughts of hate cross (I can't devour your blame)
This is your choice (this is your hammer to crush)
I have no voice (you're not the hand that I trust)

Throw it down on me.
Throw it down on me.

Before you break your silence,
Before we tear this open
We'll count the dead and hopeless
For every word unspoken.

Thoughts, like blood, run (forever staining our hands)
Mouth like cold gun (before the barrel we stand)
The latest and the last (you put a price on my head)
The latest and the last (the worst is already said)


Spilling through your teeth
You're sick of what you've seen
You point your guilt at every step we took in loyalty


Throw it down on me.
Throw it down.

    General CommentWe can judge and people will judge us (The latest), but God will make the final judgement. The last judgement.

    General CommentI love the line
    "We'll count the dead and hopeless for every word unspoken". I'm pretty sure it's referring to unbelievers who will end up going to hell unless we tell them the Word. So for "every word unspoked" there will be dead and hopeless as a result. Knowing this and hearing the song really makes me want to run out of my house screaming gospel, but I guess we can't really do that today...Either way it's a sweet song and has a great message

    General CommentFrom blessedresistance.com

    Passing judgment on one another as Christians can be very devastating and it happens so often, we’ve grown accustomed to it. Only God knows what lies in the hearts of each and every one of us. The judgmental ideals of Christians against each other result in a very segregated mindset.

    For instance, many Christians have passed judgment on heavy metal as a whole, saying that it’s not a healthy platform for reaching people in the name of Christ, and rather a blasphemous and worldly alternative to other genres of Christian music. The amazing things that I’ve seen happen for the kingdom of God within the heavy metal scene prove that thought to be a very ignorant perception.

    Basically the song suggests, you can have the latest judgment, but God will have the last.
