The Myriad – You Waste Time Like A Grandfather Clock lyrics

Where were you a week ago when we gathered in the courtyard?
Where were you when we sang and our song shook the ground?
Where were you a week ago when the church bells started swinging?
Where were you when they rang and angels came down?

You waste time like a grandfather clock
You waste time like a grandfather clock
And that's when we start counting sandbags
That's when we start counting sandbags

Where were you a week ago when the green line started growing
Where were you when it burst and spread green the crowd
Where were you a week ago when the red sun wasn't sinking
Where were you when it cracked and spread fire about

You waste time like a grandfather clock
You waste time like a grandfather clock
And that's when we start counting sandbags
That's when we start counting sandbags

You waste time like a grandfather clock
You waste time like a grandfather clock
And that's when we start counting sandbags
That's when we start counting sandbags

And if God did part the clouds
Do you think he'd be proud?

You waste time like a grandfather clock
You waste time like a grandfather clock
And that's when we start counting sandbags
That's when we start counting sandbags

You waste time like a grandfather clock
You waste time like a grandfather clock
And that's when we start counting sandbags
That's when we start counting sandbags

    I feel that this song was meant too have two different interpretation and is very genius. It appears as if one meaning of the song is as everyone else has described it already about basically calling someone out for claiming to be a christian while they spread no christian message and don't act in a manner that shows their faith; however the second meaning I feel they are intending to convey is about going out and taking chances in life in relationships both romantic and friendly. It's so genius since with these 2 ways of interpreting the song it can be related to by everyone regardless if you have faith while still speaking out a meaningful spiritual message. Truly an amazing song, if anyone feels that this interpretation I have made is wrong please feel free and encouraged to challenge my interpretation I love seeing how other people see this song!
