    The Book represents the word of God, the bible, God's law. The law brings revelation of mans sinful nature and his need for God. The law points us to a need for a savior. When I lost all hope to loo, Someone (Christ) took that heavy book, of the Law and the impossible burden it imputes to man. All it's weight they set aside, after they had satisfied it's demands (Christ came to fulfill the law. He took the burden of it upon himself, and satisfied it once and for all.

    To me, this universe is full of natural laws, such as gravity, law of conservation of mass, etc, which would exist even if man didn't. I believe justice is another one of these laws, which can only be overcome by mercy. I think the 'book' refered to in this song is a 'book of justice'. Just as gravity allows man the opportunities to build muscle, or to feel the joy of lifting anothers burden, gravity also prevents us from soaring in to the heavens; so in other words, justice is, as gravity is, both good and bad or 'beautiful and dread'. When I've messed up, the thought of justice coming to me is the heaviest book I can imagine carrying, then I allow the savior to lift the book into the arms of the atonement and I feel very much like what is described in the last sentences of this song. This band- especially the lyrics, have helped me through hard times of doubt, and I'm grateful for their continuing to be a light on a hill.

    It's the Gospel of Christ. We try to justify ourselves before God with our good deeds (the book), but it is only death ("I knew they'd lay me in my grave"). It's honey when we succeed, but bitter when we fail. Trying to please God with good works only shows that we will fail so Jesus takes the book from us and "satisfies it's demands" for us. Knowing we are free from trying to please God by our efforts and knowing that Christ has pleased him for us and now we are pleasing to Him, lifts the curse from our heart. In Christ, we are 100% perfect in God's sight. That's the good news! Probably one of Thrice's best songs in my opinion.

    I don't know why people are so upset about religion and faith. I refuse the religion, but I do believe in god, and I know jesus christ died for all of us. I don't know how much truth are in the bible, but I have faith which no one could take from me ever. Dustin also believes that jesus died for our sins. Respect that, and if you want to refuse faith, go and find someone else. So he is a believer and there is a load of other bands. Pagans I mean.

    One main reason I think people are thinking that its "not" about the bible is the fact that the lyrics are wrong. Its not "they were beautiful and dread". Its "they were beautiful and red". Most new bibles have all of jesus's words highlighted in red text. The song is about dying to yourself, realizing that jesus took the sacrifice and truly died for you so that you could live a new life.
