Watch what you say on the stand. You're running in circles.
I know more than you think your words are empty.
Of all the heavenly hosts!
This will all make sense when the records gold.
What's a few more units for your soul?

You're wasting my time,
While there wasting away.
You'll never, you'll never save me.
You've dropped every line,
But they don't mean a thing.
You'll never, you'll never save me.

You live your life in the saddest way I've ever seen.
You are the reason I don't believe.
I'm not denying the worth of things unseen,
And this isn't a part of the next big thing.
I'm just dying to show them all that you are.
You are nothing.

    He's explained this song many of times and it is about those how preach and sing "faith in god" songs but then off stage there stealing and being the worst christians. He's not anti christian, he went to a christian school til he was in 6th grade.

    It's about hypocrites. Mainly peoria that say they are christians and don't act like it. (you live your life in the saddest way i've ever seen, you are the reason i don't believe).. And after that part he's basically saying he isn't saying there is no god or anything but he's trying to show that your nothing and are worthless if you don't stand for what you supposedly believe.
