You've compromised your doctrines
You've surrendered yourself to fashion
Come back to your faith
Come back to grace
He sang with us and loved others

The death obsession
The blood relationship
Creates such a rotten demise
Oh lord...
Such blackness
Portrays the love of a machine
I did not want you to join this culture
So how can you be so proud?
Pray to the heavens
With whatever it takes
I wish to shine this light back upon you
It's obvious that apocalyptic barriers
(Will give) no mercy to fashion
You've compromised your doctrines
You've surrendered yourself now...

    This song is referring to our savior, Jesus Christ. The title, "Number Three, Don't Forget" pretty much says it all... our Lord is almighty

    I think that it means that some people get so deprssed that they leave their faith and focus on worldly things that might maybe make them "happy"

    everything below is true, but this song also refers to things we otherwise believe are like the "love of a machine": non-existant, and it is also a call out to the corrupt of this world in darkness to come back to the light. it also refers to Christ's death on the cross for our sake and how we take that for granted without ever stopping to consider the importance of the final sacrifice made by God Himself. the death obsession out of the love He had for others

    The title, Number three, never forget, is a reference to Dale Earnhardt. Im not kidding. But the message behind it is about how we must set apart from the world. We must be closer to Christ.

    I think when that the title, "Number Three, Never Forget" is referring to the Trinity. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Don't get caught up in all of your worldly pleasures. All that stuff will never matter in the Rapture. God wants you as his own. Stay true to your faith, and if you haven't, surrender to Jesus today, before it is to late!
