It's like I never had time to look away
Bodies stuck between death and decay
Are plastic and set up on display,
And their eyes are wide and they are looking my way.
Each ligament exposed each muscle connected
And every organ that I proudly neglected,
Have been arranged for the common collective,
Stomaching the sight of human flesh resurrected

It seems we're fearfully made and designed,
But it's a shame we can so blind

We're all the same,
Made of hair and bones and water and blood cells
And we're all to blame,
For spending way too much time on ourselves

I have been blessed and now I'm blind, a veil's been pulled over my eyes
Now every bad season that kept me believing seems so contrived
There's more glory to be seen and savored through suffering
Than ever was through self serving escape.

It seems we're fearfully made and designed,
But it's a shame we can so blind

We're all the same,
Made of hair and bones and water and blood cells
And we're all to blame,
For spending way too much time on ourselves

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust!

Cause we're all the same,
Made of hair and bones and water and blood cells
And we're all to blame,
For spending way too much time on ourselves

    This song is about that We're just flesh and bones, we're nothing without soul and we're nothing without God. The Classic Crime knows God and reflect in their songs that without God, we're like a bones and flesh sack.

    Ok, this is really crazy, but I went on YouTube cuz I love watching (and making fun of) those videos that play stuff backwards for a different meaning, and I saw this song. They played the intro (the whispering part) backwards, and there wasn't any need to decipher it, The Classic Crime obviously just recorded this and played it backwards on the song: "Everyone must dance the dance of death". Crazy stuff.
