I am lost
Need a god
Somewhere to go when it's all over
I am blind
Give me eyes
Kaleidoscope the world in color

Don't have time to meditate the meaning of the rain
Synchronize our memories til we all think same way

Cuz I get lost
Need a god
Help me put my world in order

I don't wanna know the truth
I conceive a better way to lie
I just need feel secure again
The witnesses evaded
Codify my wasted youth
Everywhere I look I feel the weight

So I don't feel this meaningless again
So wait it out now

Tickle my animal instincts, survive
Capable, sociable, subject, I'm part of the pack

I know a guy, somewhere, whose got a guy, from town, whose knows a guy, from around, whose gotta die

We crave a greater existence, survive
Attainable, modified purpose I'm part of the pack
Citizen of the world

I called my sister’s, cousin, uncle, friend, made sure to trust them time and time again

Oh no he said a bad word

We should burn him at the stake, desecrate his name, spit on him from high horses exaggerate the shame

He's ignorant and vulgar
So evil we can tell, he'll surely rot in hell, a homophobic sociopath a menace to us all
He'll take the fall

The group is never ending
The group grew from decay
The group is darkness father
Heaven selected the truth as pain

    My Interpretation```
    I am lost
    Need a god
    Somewhere to go when it's all over
    I am blind
    Give me eyes
    Kaleidoscope the world in color

    Don't have time to meditate the meaning of the rain
    Synchronize our memories til we all think same way
    ```
    It sounds like someone who is coming to terms with their insignificance and feels like a waste of life. They feel lost figuring out how to navigate through the the rest of their life.

    This person is calling out for a sign from God, they feel they need God to wipe away their memories of youth. They believe that this is what will make them feel secure in their waning life.
    They dont want to wait or sort out their feelings, they impulsively need God to wipe away all of their pain and regret.

    ```
    Cuz I get lost
    Need a god
    Help me put my world in order
    ```

    This person is realizing they have felt this way before and is might have become aware that they are living with consequences for impulsively acting upon these feelings.

    ```
    I don't wanna know the truth
    I conceive a better way to lie
    I just need feel secure again
    ```

    This person is realizing how they turned to impulsive behavior in order to hide from the growing feeling that they are wasting their life solidifying their deepest fears (dying insignificant).
    They are asking God to magically sort out all of the mistakes in their past and put them onto a timeline where they are famous, accomplished, and important.
    They dont care about the afterlife, their imagination can paint beautiful pictures of heaven, they just want to feel as though they are accomplished now.

    ```
    The witnesses evaded
    Codify my wasted youth
    Everywhere I look I feel the weight
    ```

    Everywhere they go they see people's accomplishments and cant bear to be reminded how much of a waste of life they are.


    ```
    We crave a greater existence, survive
    Attainable, modified purpose I'm part of the pack
    Citizen of the world
    ```

    Everyone wants to be special, they want to be famous or of historical significance. Yet most of us are just surviving.

    It is attainable, because some people are famous/historical, this person wants their purpose to be rearranged so that they are significant, not just a regular person in society.

    ```
    I know a guy, somewhere, whose got a guy, from town, whose knows a guy, from around, whose gotta die

    I called my sister’s, cousin, uncle, friend, made sure to trust them time and time again
    ```

    This person feels as though they can only accomplish things by relying on others.

    ```
    Oh no he said a bad word

    We should burn him at the stake, desecrate his name, spit on him from high horses exaggerate the shame
    ```

    This is a reference to how in times of little revolution that people are lead to turn against each other and create 'drama'.
    They will do anything they can to fuel the fire in a pack mentality they will shame a person and look down on them making them feel isolated and insignificant (Look at the internet and media).

    This meaningless feeling person looking back at an event that played out like this in their past and was ostracized so bad that it lead to their self destructive behavior.

    ```
    The group is never ending
    The group grew from decay
    The group is darkness father
    Heaven selected the truth as pain
    ```
    The group/pack/society will never end. This person is seeing the darkness in society and how it grows on the shoulders of the less accomplished and the less fortunate.

    This person believes that the pain they feel, their meaninglessness and insignificance, is the truth that everyone in life hides from, painting pictures of heaven telling each other they are important when they are not.

    My InterpretationDance Gavin Dance's lyrics have always been terribly difficult to interpret, but I am going to go ahead and take a shot at this one. In my opinion, this song is a criticism of people who spew hate about religious people and their beliefs without trying to understand or even respect their beliefs. At first glance, this song may appear to be saying the direct opposite. However, there are a few lines that support my theory.

    "I am lost
    Need a god"

    A religious person would not be claiming that they need "A GOD", they would saying that they need their one true god. Unless of course they believe in a religion with multiple gods, however these people are few and far between. Therefore, I think that it is just a person who should look into religion for peace and answers, but doesn't.

    "Tickle my animal instincts, survive
    Capable, sociable, subject, I'm part of the pack"

    Many religions believe that humans are separate from animals. I am not saying that all religious people believe in creationism, just that humans are above animals because they can pray and worship. Why would someone who is religious be commenting on their animal side or being part of a pack?

    "Don't have time to meditate the meaning of the rain
    Synchronize our memories til we all think same way"
    I think that meditate is an important word here. It shows that this person has never thought about the rain (or other natural occurrences like this) from a different perspective. It is just a lot easier to believe what they taught you in school (thereby synchronizing everyone's memories) and be done with it.

    "Oh no he said a bad word
    We should burn him at the stake, desecrate his name, spit on him from high horses exaggerate the shame
    He's ignorant and vulgar
    So evil we can tell, he'll surely rot in hell, a homophobic sociopath a menace to us all
    He'll take the fall"

    A major viewpoint of many religions is to be kind to others and accept everyone as they are. Of course, there are those religious zealots who are very homophobic and indeed sociopaths. In my opinion, these are the two very distinct stereotypes that get thrown around about religious people. Therefore, why would a kind and accepting religious person spew that kind of hatred about any person? Why would a zealous religious fanatic be spewing this kind of hate about something that they are?

    With these factors considered, I believe the song is commenting on the fact that non-religious people are now doing the same thing religious people had done for many years - "Desecrate" the name of the non-believers. It is also saying that instead of considering the many viewpoints and belief systems out there, they just assume that everything they've heard and learned is true.

    I personally do not believe in religion, however I have studied the subject to some extent and respect religious beliefs. Some of the things I see other non-religious people do and say to those with religions is horrifying. One example of this is how an Indiana pizza shop owner was forced to close down shop and go into hiding for expressing his religious belief. People even threatened to destroy/burn down his shop. In my opinion, DGD was trying to comment on events like this by basically saying that some non-religious people could really benefit from having god in their life.

    Just my 2 cents though.
