August Burns Red – The Escape Artist lyrics

Open your closed mind. (Open your closed mind.)
Close your open mouth.
You're pushing morethan you're pulling.
Every word that you say passes through my...
Open your closed mind. Close your open mouth.
You're pushing more than you're pulling.

Every word that you say passes through my

Ears

Before it even escapes your lips.

No one learns from someone they hate.
Your mouth is like a grenade.
No one learns from someone they hate.
Your mouth is like a grenade,
Blowing everyone away. Oh.

How many have you pushed away,
And how many have you saved? (2x)

Pick and choose based on a face,
But it's all in the heart.
Pick and choose based on a face,
But it's all in the heart
That carries weight.

Don't judge until you've taken it all in,
'Cause in the end you'll pray to stay above the flames.

Open your closed mind and close your open mouth.
You're pushing more, you're pushing more than you are pulling.
Every word that you say passes through my ears
Before it even escapes, before it even escapes.

Open your closed mind (Open your closed mind)
And close your open mouth.
You're pushing more, you're pushing more
Than you are pulling.

Open your closed mind and close your open mouth.
You're pushing more, you're pushing more
Than you are pulling. (3x)

    The song is about sharing your faith/christ/god with others. After all this is a religious band.
    "open your closed mind" have an open mind that they will take it in and you can save them.
    "close your open mouth you're pushing more than you're pulling". This basically says be careful how you as a christian speak. This can push people away from the message you are trying to send.
    "no one learns from someone they hate. Your mouth is like a grenade,.
    Blowing everyone away". Again this part shows that what you say as a christian has great importance and can push people away.
    Don't pick and choose who to reach out and speak to based on their looks.
    "pick and choose based on a face, but it's all in the heart".
    "don't judge until you've taken it all in, cause in the end you'll pray to stay above the flames".
