This is emotion
Emotion less war
A torn shirt and a long dead cause
I can't sleep
This kind of thing gets me down
Don't say walk
I may lose my fear

I could lose myself
In this honesty

I read all sorts of things
There's so much to learn
I've seen the hand that rushes in
As it rush over you

I could lose myself
In this honesty

    My InterpretationAn anti-war song. War is caricatured as rash, sad, scary, boring, ignorant, unchristian, deceptive

    General CommentCouldn’t it just be a love song to someone called Christian?

    My InterpretationI've always thought it is about the end of a relationship after a physical fight - "A torn shirt and a long dead cause" and the ensuing emotional upheaval - "I can't sleep, This kind of thing gets me down" ...

    General CommentWell, it's nothing to do with God, for one. The "Christian" in the song was just someone's name, inserted to fill a gap (source: the band).

    My InterpretationI think it's more about religion itself; a young man's confusion and frustration about why his faith often results in war. Why does what he is wanting to believe in for pure and good reasons so often let him down? The irony of life. This young man is not so hypocritical, just confused.

    General CommentI've always thought the song was about homosexuality, and a young man fighting against it. And I thought the lyrics were, 'I could lose myself in dishonesty'. The official video suggests homosexuality too, a young man's love for Christian.
