Why can't we try and understand?
All these images are out of hand
And in demand by every man that think he's on his own

And all this time, we've been heading nowhere really fast
Never knowing that the past would make us feel alone

But now, that all the cover's blown
You can see how much you've thrown out the door
Don't wait before you try and let this go

You've got this dirty little secret
You're trying hard to keep it
Out of sight, out of mind
But you can't hide

When will you see that the end will come eventually?
But you can't just let it be, you have to take control

And grab ahold of the one thing that you can't let go
It doesn't matter what you know, you'll be stuck inside this hole

    General CommentThis song is about how some Christians can get caught up in pornography, and that their "dirty little secret" of looking at it will eventually be revealed if they don't turn away from it.

    General CommentIt's just talking about all the things we do on a regular basis that is different from what God wants from us. I don't think it's refering to anything specific.

    General CommentI think it is rather specific because of the lines "All these images are out of hand
    And in demand by every man that think he's on his own"

    I know how much porn brings you down firsthand and I hated this song because of that. Lucky for us God forgives and rejuvenates us if we only admit to him, ourselves and others what we've done :)
