And now they're searching for that new messiah it's Their greatest passion to set'em up and knock'em down put them on a pedestal idolatry wear the ring you're married it's all yours to their envy because you hold a higher key of senses and they are drawn like magnets to a genius it's confirmed [chorus] set'em up and knock'em down tour taste is so accountable this is no great loss and sharing never was a choice it's burning on your cross it gives you credit and a voice here to relay tour beautiful ideals vicaruiously through Them and when he died too many were sympathetic and they are all pathetic so you dethrone your ring without listening and jesus christ is realized as he burns on your cross but this is no great loss another one will come the wait is short your search is brief you find another faith another clark kent another superman flashing in the pan [repeat chorus] and now you are searching for that new messiah it's your greatest passion it's the latest fashion

    General Commenti can't believe this is the first post! this is by far one of lagwagons best songs. i see it as being about god. his genius is confirmed. jesus is burned on his cross. only thing is, in the actual song the beginning part is "and now you're searching for that new messiah" the beginning is focusing on a single person, and the end sings about the mob group

    General Commentthis song is about all those materialistic, pagen people out there who worship cloths and fads and would do anything to fit into that fad. Other people follow these people around like droids worshiping them because they followed a trend. And when it says "jesus christ is realized as he burns apon your cross" just meaning that if it was popular to worship god, they would pretend to be faithful and religious, but when it got old or uncool to worship the lord, people would move on and find something else to worship. just like trends. So for all those preps out there who spend thier whole lives bouncing around from fad to trend to fad. they are mindless creatures just shallow and waiting for thier new chance to fit in your own lives!

    General CommentThe lyrics are horribly mangled, but the whole meaning of the song can be found in the quote 'A crowd is fickle.'

    General CommentYou guys hit it on the head. One other thing, I think this song is also a continuation of "Know it All".

    General Commenti'm not one to post on songmeanings like a message board, but learn what a fucking pagAn is before you go throwing accusations toward another "lesser" religion. this mentions nothing of polytheism, or paganism, and is one of my favorite lagwagon songs as well.

    General CommentI just clicked this because it was the most recently commented-on song. However, darkLIGHT, I'm fairly certain his use of the word "pagan" (despite its obvious typographical error), was used symbolically. Give his post another read and see if you can't glean something.

    one of their best in my opinion.
