Smile, wave
Convince the sanctuary, our charade
Though you're the object of my deepest rage
Just counterfeit this holiness for me
And everything will be OK

My sweet one
You tell no lies
The greatest reason to be despised

But we must pretend
Your broken wrist
Just happened when you fell off your bike

So this is
The reason
The sanctuary hums
God save us
God save us
From your chosen ones

Smile, wave
Protect his pulpit from all suffering
He'll make celebrity the end game
So much more valuable than family
Not even violence can betray...

As long as
You keep your lips
Locked up til the end of this age

And even
If you won't
It's your word up against what he'll say

Cry, Girl
Become the wails of victims unheard
Your tears have given you the calm nerve
So if they're asking you to hide your bane
You just keep screaming to the grave

You'll be
The reason
The helpless celebrate
He takes us
He takes us
From our violent shame

    To me, this song is about the pastors like joel ostien, or jim bakker who have gotten so involed with fame that they forget about god and what he wants us to be with him.

    Is it about the pastors family who are bound to silence because of the pastors reputation. Its a plea to bring all things hidden into the light
