Blessed be those who have no idols. NO IDOLS
Invoke holy honor, sanctify the patient.
I don't see the world the same.
I'm no one's hero, so just forget my name.

I abhor you,
With every foolish thing that you say.

None of it is worth the time:
Another meaningless war.

You don't know what you need.
We're all so back and forth,
Nothing is as it seems.
You don't know what you need.
We make the same mistakes,
We've ruined everything.

What is it this time?
What must you call holy?
This is your lifeline,
Nothing is at it seems.

If I were you I'd give it up.
If I were you I'd care.
I'm born to lose
With a noose around my neck.
World be damned and move forward.

I abhor you,
With every selfish thing that you say.

None of it is the worth the time.

You don't know what you need.
We're all so back and forth,
Nothing is as it seems.
You don't know what you need.
We make the same mistakes,
We've ruined everything.
Born to lose
With a noose around my neck

    This is an amazing song. I think its saying, why idolize people? We all live in the same broken world, none of us are perfect, and we will never be able to compare to our creator. (:

    Yep... Anti-idolatry! I know many bands leave the interpretation up to their listeners; however, the meaning to this song is crystal clear.

    I believe he saying that the time is near that the world is in the beginning stages of the coming of the anti christ or false messiah. And he trying to warn us of the changing world and basically to be aware of the things you serve ( give all you time to ,money , addictions
    ) cause they just confine you to ways of the world which only distort from your relationship with god.
    "if i were you i'd give it up.
    If i were you i'd care.
    I'm born to lose
    With a noose around my neck.
    World be damned and move forward. "

    Means dont hold on the possessions of your life. Urging you to understand that when you accept the lord into your life ( you become born agai)n your are enemy of the world and when the time comes satan find a way to kill all christians. Meaning we lose the war on earth but wont lose soul. So except it.
