I watched the YouTube video released by the record company, and it had a quote from the lyricist, joshua, and he said it was inspired by a time where he was just in doubt about the impact he was making. These guys at christian, and they try to spread jesus' love and compassion and message through there music. At the time he wrote this, he was feeling, as I myself have felt from time to time, as if nothing he was doing was really making an impact on the world "did all my words fall on deaf ears? Was what i wrote only shown to closed eyes? " this was him struggling with doubt about his purpose and the path he chose for himself. Great song.

This is about both the band and a christian seed. It's about starting the band to plant a christian seed. "four years ago we planted a seed. " I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and say the band started 4 years before this album. "when we started living with purpose. And writing with meaning. This is what we were made for. Every day I live this future" - clearly about their faith and how they know it's their purpose to spread the gospel. Also with the christian message, I really like the first verse and how it talks about the branches (i think meaning band members coming together) and how god made it all work out with them for the best: "the right ones have grown in to fill the gaps, and all are equal in love and trust... " I like the second verse because it talks about them being an example to believers and non believers "i have never been so consumed, and i have never loved it more to be devoted to letting all see what it is to live in the love of others... " Overall a fantastic song by wcar.

I have no desire for spiritual arguments, because I don't think god can be proven or disproven, and I believe god made it that way on purpose so that people believe by faith and not just logic. In other words, I'm a christian agnostic. Ironic right? Because technically, someone agnostic doesn't believe that a diety can be proven or disproven. But that's not my point, I'm not trying to give anyone insight into my theology and philosophy; I love god and my savior is jesus and that's all that matters. What my actual point is, is that I love the fact that screamo music is probably the most effective way to minister through music. I see several people on these comments talk about how this band has strengthened their faith or even helped begin their faith, and I think it's because it's a type of music that you enjoy mainly for the musical side of it, and you can't really tell what the words are until you look them up. And then when people see what the song is really about, they can be changed and it works as ministry. And that's why I love christian hardcore/metalcore. Thank you for your time.

Personally, I think this song is directed at the youth. The machine they. Mean is definitely the world, but I don't think it demons that they are trying not to disappoint, it's peers. The different things, danger, cutting, suicide, all of it, are things that many youth today face. When it says give up and feed the machine, it's citing the mentality that we "christian kids" can't resist having s**, or drinking, or doing drugs before we grow up, and we might as well give up and feed our worldly desires. But then it says to wake up, kill the machine and the oppression of peer pressure and the world. But that's one of the many things I love about red, they can be interpreted as christian or not, it's only a matter of perspective.

As most tcc listeners know, 3 of the band members (including the singer, Matt Mcdonald) are Christians, and so many sublimal messages are written into the lyrics. It took me a few times listening to this to catch it. He uses the husband and te abusive wife to show, in our understanding, God's love for us. In the bible, a common analogy used is Jesus Christ as a bridegroom and humanity, or the church, as his bride. This world has mostly forsaken God, and this is nothing new, the world has been evil since the fall of man. The song says that his wife is terrible to him, yet he still loves her. Some of Jesus' last words were spent asking forgiveness for the people crucifying him. Also from the song "when he loved her and gave up his life in more ways the she knows how" God gave up his only son for us, watching him be killed in the most brutal of ways; we as humans are not capable of that kind of sacrifice. He makes this message clear in the second verse when he asks where is God in a situation like that, and then answers himself saying that he has mercy on those people, and he talks about his love when he says, "when I look in my brother's eyes, I can see where his love comes from." This is an amazing song from an amazing band. Definately one of my favorites.

This song, and pretty much anything by Justin Beiber makes me very, very sad. It makes me sad that this is what the music industry has come to: commercialized pop that's all about love, written by a kid who doesn't even know what love is. What happened to the old days when it was about how good the music was, not how hot the singer is or how heavy the guitar riffs are or how catchy the music is? Music has turned into a way to sell people, not selling honest-to-goodness great music written from the heart.

Ok, this is really crazy, but I went on YouTube cuz I love watching (and making fun of) those videos that play stuff backwards for a different meaning, and I saw this song. They played the intro (the whispering part) backwards, and there wasn't any need to decipher it, The Classic Crime obviously just recorded this and played it backwards on the song: "Everyone must dance the dance of death". Crazy stuff.
