"Quicksand Jesus" as written by and Rachel Southworth David Sabo....
She caught the melting sky
It burned but still the winter passes by and by
To the other side

A slow parade of wind
That blows through trees that wilted with the season's children

Are we saved by the words of bastard saints
Do we live in fear or faith
Tell me now who's behind the rain

A maze of tangled grace
The symptoms of "for real" are crumbling from embrace
But still we chase the shadows of belief
And new religion clouds our visions of the roots of our souls

Are we ashamed of our own fate
Or play the fool for our own sake tell me who's behind the rain

What do we need where do we go
When we get where we don't know
Why should we doubt the virgin white of fallen snow
When faith's our shelter from the cold

What do we need where do we go
When we get where we don't know
Why should we doubt the virgin white of fallen snow
When faith's our shelter from the cold

Quicksand Jesus I'm so far away without you

Quicksand Jesus I'm so far away without you, oh oh
Quicksand Jesus I'm so far away
Quicksand Jesus I'm so far away

Quicksand Jesus I need you
Quicksand Jesus I believe you
Quicksand I'm so far away

Yeah, yeah, oh, oh

    General CommentOr, it could possibly be talking about the struggle to keep the blind faith with the Religion... aka "Quicksand Jesus". The question comes up "Are we living in Fear or Faith?" Basically the social normality of society is to trust in this religion and blindly follow it, but everything is convincing him otherwise, the fact that life is so negative, "Who is behind the rain?" (who is causing all of this torment?) And how we are afraid of our fate which is why we hide behind religion to comfort ourselves that we will go to heaven... we are afraid of Not Knowing.. we have to have the comfort of knowing what will happen. We are playing the fools by following something blindly without questioning for our own sake of making ourselves comfortable and sane.
    Whats wrong with going through life not knowing? Whats wrong with not following something we don't trust or believe. We don't NEED to believe anything... Quicksand Jesus, brings me down.. (aka Quicksand)
