Thrice – Blinded lyrics

I was always one of the righteous
Never lived outside of the light
Kept a close watch on the whitewash
Disguising the dead bones inside
Disguising the dead bones inside

I was always one of the good ones
Keeping tabs(?) on everyone else
Sure that I was one of the chosen
I was a child of Him
I was a child of Him

But you buried me in the bright light
Yea you held my eyes to the sun
Til I could see that

I was worse
Than I ever feared I could be
But somehow
I was loved
More than I ever dared to believe
Because of you

I was always one of the blameless
Or at least that's what I believed
Never thought I could've been blinded
Til I could no longer see
Til I could no longer see

But you buried me in the bright light
Yea you held my eyes to the sun
Til I could see that

I was worse
Than I ever feared I could be
But somehow
I was loved
More than I ever dared to believe
Because of you

You showed me
I was worse
Than I ever feared I could be
But somehow
I was loved
More than I ever dared to believe
Because of you

    This song is from the perspective of a pharisee, one of the hypocritical religious leaders whom jesus condemned. It may be specifically from the perspective of saul (later called paul), who was blinded by a vision of jesus on the road to damascus. "whitewash" and "dead bones inside" refer to matthew 23: 27, and "child of hell" in the second stanza (which it should properly be, rather than child of him) is a reference to matthew 23: 15.
