"New Religion" as written by and John Paul/purdy Pitts....
Welcome to your life
We have got you in our sights
And thoughts of God are better left alone
It's in your head black n' blue
What they told you wasn't true
Come along and fight with the unknown
The army's grown

We'll pray to all the wrong decisions
Whoa oh oh
This time you'll show all that you can be
Whoa oh oh
Grab your weapons now
We'll run against the crowd
And changing history

So, lets take the vow
We will show you how
Your time has come for the new religion
Your voice is proud
Be your savior now
The battle's won for the new religion

No one can defeat what the congregation speaks
Bound together the flag that we defend
They made a fool out of you
But you knew just what to do
Raise your fists up and stand until the end
Amen

We'll pray to all the wrong decisions
Whoa oh oh
This time you'll show all that you can be
Whoa oh oh
Grab your weapons now
We'll run against the crowd
And changing history

So, lets take the vow
We will show you how
Your time has come for the new religion
Your voice is proud, be your savior now
The battle's won for the new religion

Come now and imagine with me
Taking back a world that once was ours
Let's regain the power
And then we will end what we've begun

Lets take the vow,
We will show you how
Your time has come for the new religion
Your voice is proud
Be your savior now
The battle's won for the new religion

We are the unholy
We are the bastard sons of your media culture
Our minds, eyes and bodies were born of your exclusion
An illusion you hide behind
You don't love a god, you love your comfort
To you we are filth, we are dirty, so be it
We are dirty and unclean, a congregation of the unseen
Together we will set this world on fire
This is the new religion
Amen

    General Commentthis song.. well this explanation is going to be long haha!
    ok first off, this song addresses the 'outcasts'.
    ''its in your head black and blue, what they told you wan't true come along and fight wiht the unknown''
    this is refering to the immages that society is cramming down our throats as 'normal' and 'acceptable' and that you shouldn't listen to that because, hey who wants to be normal right? dare to be different!
    ''we'll pray to all the wrong decisions... changing history'' rebel against normal! show others that just because your different, doesn't mean that your the equivelent to gum on the bottom of someone's shoe, you're a force to be reconed with deary!
    '' no one can defeat what the congregation speaks... amen''
    if we all stand together, we can show society that we're not what they think we are, that we're NOT a stereotype, that we're so much more, we are original and awesome and we have gamechanging ideas, all we need is an opportunity to show them that :)
    ''we are the unholy...amen''
    translation: we're here, we've BEEN here, you've just chosen to ignore us. yea, we're not apart of your perfect vision of society but you know what? who gives a flip? we're going to do what we want to do and you can't do anything about it so :p

    how that helps alittle ^-^;

    General Commentit sounds really dark like they believe religon shouldn't exist i haven't heard this song in a while but by reading the lyrics it just seems like theyre talking about taking an oath to get rid of religion and kinda like make their own religon its very dark but that's just my opinion

    My InterpretationWell Andy stated that he grew up in a reasonably traditional Christian family and afterwards he said although its nice and comforting and all he doesn't think its likely for there to be anything after death. This is basically summed up with "You don't love a god, you love your comfort" That's the thing with religion, (Whether you believe in any or not) Its comforting to think there is a higher power, ya'know. Like that thought process of "At Least if I die I go to a better place" kinda thing. Besides that I think its great as personally I hate religion and see at as propaganda ^-^

    Peace Out,
