This is the faith!
This is the faith complex,
Where all it takes is another step so we can then step again
It's not all about the numbers
This is the faith!
This is the faith complex,
Try not to write another disappointing letter to integrity,
Only go faster when you've stopped and thought,
Only go slower when you've learned of wisdom.
Everything is a question of goodwill,
But we're too busy delivering answers with arrogance,
Isn't it funny how ones compassion diminishes when his or her own perils rise?
Perils Rise
It's not all about the numbers,
What should we ask for?
Who should we look to if all we know is burning bridges
Don't speak to me like I'm a stranger.
Turn your thoughts to the roots,
As we've all been caught up in the branches.
With roots above and branches below,
Don't run if you don't know your walk,
This is the faith complex,
This is a memoir to friends persisting.
This is the faith complex!

    @ plainpreacher actually their name is about how material things and things of this world don't matter. look things up before you talk. you're confused about what you're writing. if you actually read the lyrics carefully you would see that its talking directly about how people can have such compassion for something but when their problems rise their compassion diminishes.

    To the unregistered poster below... Are you sure it's the lyrics and not the instrumentals and screaming that move you? Even before people outside of the music scene were ever asked their ideas on the meaning of these lyrics, the meaning towards the lyrics put into these songs were meant to be religious. The band members have a christian background and are trying to help others understand what it means to them, and also reaching out to their audience.

    To plainpreacher their God is not the devil Im sorry u dont understand so let me help u out a little!! It's the same concept as their lyrics 'emeralds hold no hope' and many others. What they believe it to mean is that possessions don't matter at all and someday everyone will realize that this is true. When standing before God, he won't care about your sweet Prada scarf or Gucci shoes or whatever. It's a Christian reasoning for the name, they didn't name it to attempt at being fashionable or whatever. So just because their way of delivering Gods word is diffrent dont pass judgment.. I think it is great what they are doing they are speaking to the younger generation. God doesnt care what we wear how cool we are or wat music we listen to as long as we are worshiping him!! So God Bless and try and open your mind and hear a little!!

    "it's not about the numbers" isn't about joining anything.

    "It's the faith!" "Where all it takes is another step so we can then step again"
    It's not about the number(s) of steps you take. It's the walking by faith and not by sight. Above all doubt and trough all peril, we walk... we walk by faith.

    It's about walking with the Lord.
