Muddy trail beside the water
Leads the lambs into the slaughter
Hands and knees, we all atone
Path is paved with blood and bone
Trembly hands reveal their purpose
Blisters form beneath the surface
No one gonna make us leave
We're the ones that still believe

Fear comes piercing through the silence
In the air, the scent of violence
Watching from above the trees
We're the ones that still believe
We're the ones that still believe
We're the ones that still believe

    General Commentyour taking this song way to literally it does make obvious refernces to christianity in most of the first part (psalm 23:something "the lord is my sheperd he leadeth me by the still waters........") christians pray for atonement for their sins on their hands and knees, and 9 times out of 10 peoples hands tremble when they have ill intentions and are about to act on them (try it) as for the line about blisters, I cant really explain it with words its more of a feeling you wouldn`t understand unless you`ve felt it. in short the whole song is painting a mental image of christians preying on the world
