Song of the Week

Evening, all!

Say hello to the first of many song posts to come. Every Tuesday I'll pick a song I find relevant somehow, and post a link and the lyrics.

This one is "Too Bright Too See, Too Loud to Hear" by Underoath. It's a slow and haunting rock song, which launches into screaming at the end. It reflects on being faithful to Christ, and those times when faithfulness dies. What do you think?
The italics are my notes on the lyrics.



(Sung) Good God, if your song leaves our lips
If your work leaves our hands
Then we will be wonders and vagabonds
They will stare and say how empty we are
How the freedom we had turned us up as dead men

Let us be cold, make us weak
Let us, because we all have ears
Let us, because we all have eyes
Good God...

How they knew that this would happen (We're so run down)
Good God, can you still get us home?

(Screaming) How can we still get home
I'm not dreaming
We're forgetting our forgiveness
