Distance decreases as if time is a dying cockroach.
Plagues enclose.
Sitting upon this wooden bench, I am helpless to billions of bullets.
In this moment I am helpless.
Why is it so difficult to see ourselves?
No poem I've wrote, Nor song I have sung, can halt the army of wrath.
Numbers Numbers Numbers Numbers.
In this moment I am helpless.
Serpents will transform into mice only to drown in the deepest red.
I've always expresses my thoughts in colors, but we remain blind.
Numbers Numbers Numbers Numbers

    The Devil Wears Prada is not trying just to look christian. They ARE christian. I have seen them live, and right before they began, they told they crowd what their mission is: to spread the name of Christ to people who would otherwise stay away from church, because they might see it as boring and unexciting.

    Read the lyrics to Rosemary Had an Accident. It states, "Christ stand perfect on my mind. Christ stands perfect in my heart. Jesus is the beautiful structure of love." If that isnt christian, I dont know what is.

    If the meaning is not clear then it is left up to the amount of evidence presented. The evidence suggests that this group is no different than any other secular band. The only thing I see here is an attempt to mask and paint it as christian. Anyone can take covert language and interprit it to mean what they want it to mean. Whats the standard here? I cant find a quote from the scriptures? Nor can I find a bridge to them.

    -I think this part it just describing judgement day

    "Serpents will transform into mice only to drown in the deepest red."
    -the people who are living large will become basically nothing and be sent to hades

    "I've always expresses my thoughts in colors, but we remain blind"
    -Even though people try to express how important it is to except christ into other's lives people just dont care to see it

    "Numbers Numbers Numbers Numbers"
    -As stated in reptar, king of the ozone about the subject of mathematics...i think Mike is trying to convey that all the world relies on anymore are mathematic and scientifical healings when all the world need is god
