You! You!

Tell me how, how has it taken so long for me to open up my eyes?
I see through you now, I won't fall for things you said before.
How, how has it taken so long for me to finally realize?
I'm on my team, I won't run away back t-to believe
And when they all turn against you, you better be prepared to fight.

They say I'm a sinner, but nobody knows.
You only do what you're told, you better hope that you're right.
They say I'm a sinner, I'm not the only one.
You want to point your finger, you better make a choice tonight.
'Cause I'll stand up for what is right.

How, how has such a better person become the man I am?
I turning my heart out, just give me the time.
Tell me how, how am I to change when I'm still trying to figure out how (how to save my life) to be saved?
(Save me, so save me).
And when they all turn against you, try not to look the other way.

They say I'm a sinner, but nobody knows.
You only do what you're told, you better hope that you're right.
They say I'm a sinner, I'm not the only one.
You want to point your finger, you better make a choice tonight.
'Cause I'll stand up for what is right.

No, you better choose your side, make your choice tonight.
You, you better draw the line right now between wrong and right.
I am a sinner, I'll never be a martyr.
You stand up for what's right.

They say I'm a sinner, but nobody knows.
You only do what you're told, you better hope that you're right.
They say I'm a sinner, I'm not the only one.
You want to point your finger, you better make a choice tonight.
'Cause I'll stand up for what is right.

All my life I've been the person I am,
Who are you to try and judge?

    I've taken this to be a stab at anyone who is overly-judgmental, be it religiously or morally or otherwise. The song asks repeatedly: you say that i'm a sinner? Well, we all are. Nobody really knows what it's all about, and all you're doing is repeating what somebody else has told you. As for me, i'm making my own choices in life, choosing what is right and what is wrong... And you should do the same.

    i honestly am not shure about the meaning of this song.But to me it meant that everyone does what the think is right,even if it's something horrible that seems like a "sin" to the people outside.at some point you thought it was the right thing to do and everyone does it. "YOU WANT TO POINT YOU'RE FINGER, YOU BETTER MAKE A CHOICE TONIGHT" i think that part mean that if ur going to judge what somkeone did than ur mind better be set to what u truly believe. who know's mabey later on in life you might end up doing what that person did you thought was so horrible.

    I think it means that when you make a mistake and everyone shuts you out don't give up on who you are just make things right for yourself to kind of prove yourself better. Never give up, just keep trying because we learn best from our mistakes. And once the person "pointing the finger" makes the sin/mistake, they are going to be embarrassed and have to live with the fact they were being a jerk.

    From what i understand, i think that this song is talking about christianity. It kind of makes sense. But it could be something else, too.
