Oh, Sleeper – In The Wake Of Pigs lyrics

It makes me sick that it's hard to distinguish
An honest leader who preaches a cause
That's not made, and not based
On the profit they'll receive from telling the world
What line divides you from the seeders
Who sow without growing believers
You point and you judge
Forgetting that their faith is molded by your lead

So where am I to find
A voice that's pure in urging me to climb?
There's gotta be more, there's gotta be peace
I've joined them and clawed at the ground for my feed
I've seen bloodshed but the words still remain
I left, I fled, I called, I cursed
I changed from "certain" to "searching"
But nothing has answered deserving faith

You are not alone, in the eye of the darkest storm
We are the lighthouse shining a lamp from the shore
To bring your journey home
You are not alone, use this song to lead you home
We are what's left of the love that can pierce through the callous
Life you spent undone
We are the legacy, that's left to breathe the winds to sail you home
You're not alone
If you can hear this song
The battle has been won!

Don't go, don't go!
I've got to use your voice to light the way back home
'Cause I need to see, I need to breathe
So much more than my kind is offering
Where am I to find
The voice that keeps urging me to climb?
I need to hear it again or I'll lose sight of land and be swept past my chance
To survive

Follow your pulse to the shallows
Unleash your will to survive
Make every step draw you closer
To be the hero you've always denied

Where is your voice coming from
Show me a sign I can trust
I need something more to believe in
A beacon, or something to merit pressing on

You are not alone, in the eye of the darkest storm
We are the lighthouse shining a lamp from the shore
To bring your journey home
You are not alone, use this song to lead you home
We are what's left of the love that can pierce through the callous
Life you spent undone
We are the legacy, that's left to breathe the wind to sail you home

You're not alone
If you can hear this song
The battle has been won!

Spread wide your wings
Let the draft lift you up
You've heard the call of the future flock
You're coming home

    This song is part of their concept album in which a former atheist girl is questioning if there is anyone or anything that is worthy of her faith. Also asking for guidance in her new faith. She has many questions that she can't answer and is "searching" for those answers. That is represented in the verses. The chorus is either jesus or other believers calling out to her telling her that she "is not alone". And that they will be there helping her grow in understanding. You really must look at the entire album to get to contexts of the individual songs.

    I believe that this song can have many meanings, but the main one is the world having, or not having faith in god, and him coming back for us. Its telling us that there is so much that is put right in front of out faces, but it is up to us whether we wee it or not. "dont go", meaning don't turn your back on god because his arrival is just around the corner. Let everything go, and put faith in the one that is going to lead us all to our true home.

    The song to me is simple. Every leader today. Either church or state or private firm. They all seem to be self seeking and tyrant. Controlling through force and driven by evil. This is a song explaining how most people feel. Powerless. A voice is compelling the subject who is metaphorically lost at sea to try and find stability in their torrentous life and to fight on for what they believe is right. The voice is the spotlight. The problem is that the subject needs what most people want in order to believe something. Tangible proof and not a voice becuz lies are to frequent in most peoples lives. All we can have is faith sometimes. And at the end. Yeah. Flying home. Death. Of course.
    Remind you of another lyric? "if death is victory how afraid of life can you be? "

    This song is all part of oh, sleeper's story in their concept album. In this song, she is trying to find the true faith and peace in god that she had seen in so many people but criticized for so long because all she saw in the church was hypocrisy. She's wondering how in the world she's going to grow spiritually when there are so many hypocritical "spiritual leaders" out there, but that's when the true christians show up and say "you are not alone in the eye of the darkest storm... " etc.

    This song I feel represents the internal battle, a struggle, inside someone who sees the world and how it becomes and where the hell he/she fits in. The second time I heard this song I realized that the singing parts are supposed to convey someone of pure body and astounding intellect encouraging someone, the screamer, to continue on in the wake of pigs (people that are easily influenced) and answer the call that has been presented to him/her; to be the hero they have denied. Its a tough world out there but lyrics state that you are of a future flock and that by the grace of the divine you will fly. Just spread your wings and see that the battle has been won!
