Seether – No Jesus Christ lyrics

Before you hedge those bets you placed against me
Be reticent of fortunes they foretell
Your verbal defecation I can't wash away despite myself
Your vanity, it seems, has served you well

You're so quick to choose the path walked by the righteous
So you can go and nest among the weak
The innocent observers will refuse to find the lie within
Renew the disappointment of the meek

You're no Jesus Christ!
You're no Jesus Christ!

Put the gun in my mouth and pull the trigger
I feel so alive here
Put the gun in my mouth it tastes so bitter
I feel so alive here
You're no Jesus Christ!
You're no Jesus Christ!

You keep takin' over
I keep rollin' over
I can't take it anymore [x2]

Before you hedge those bets you placed against me
Be reticent of fortunes they foretell
Your verbal defecation I can't wash away despite myself
Your vanity, it seems, has served you well

You keep takin' over
I keep rollin' over
I can't take it anymore [x4]

    Are you guys kidding me. This song has no actual connotation to the Bible or God. He wrote this about his ex, amy lee from evanescence, about how she was such a goodie-two-shoes, pretending to be so perfect and always pushing him down, laying the blame on him and his problems. So in this song he recognizes the fact that yes, he does have problems, but he's sick of her being suck a hypocrite and bringing him down.

    Actually, the singer of this was, at one time, dating Amy Lee from Evanessance. While they were dating, he was doing drug. This caused Amy to leave him. So, in this song he's trying to say "well, you're not perfect either." Since our actual Jesus is perfect, he's just saying that, "yeah he made mistakes but, hey. you're not perfect either. " This shouldn't in anyway be taken offencive. He's not trying to say anything about Jesus.
    Follow the band _ then you'll know.

    I think the meaning of this song should not be offensive to Christians at all, and I am a bible believing Christian. The author is obviously directing its meaning at those who believe to be self-righteous in and of themselves, and in doing so are fools, because Christ Jesus was the only righteous man to ever walk the Earth, and for someone to walk around as if they're holier than thou, well "you're no Jesus Christ!"

    Firestar. Be careful dude. I am certainly not a religious 'freak' as you so eloquently call them, but I think I would get my facts straight if I were you, before you post something completely random on the Net and embarrass urself! Where did Jesus ever sin. Pray-tell?
    As far as the meaning of the song. I don't think he's speaking to Christians at all. I think he's generally saying take the thorn out of ur eye before you judge me.
    I agree with Raichu & Jonathon. Besides, he's saying 'you're no Jesus' connoting that Jesus is perfect, and no one else is. Geez, its not that difficult! Even Seether admits it!
    Firestar. Take heed of these lyrics urself perhaps. Before you put all Christians in the same pot, eh?

    It's not about jesus.
    I think this song is about a person who's sick and tired of being judge and being told by other people to better. I guess he hates those self-righteous people who keeps telling him what to do. That's why he said you're no jesus- because that person has absolutely no right to say that he is wrong. Well that's about my own understanding of the song.
    I'm also somehow a person who grew up in church and I can't see any religious connotations here.
