about

We wrote this song thinking about the Westboro Baptist Church, specifically the young kids in that church that are getting raised up to be hateful and ignorant and led by lies. Those kids don't deserve that, they've got so much potential and that church is just wrecking them and turning them into misguided pawns.

The song also applies to the elders in that church, or any faction, that leads with lies and hate, blinded to the pain that they are causing.

lyrics

You're cruel heart feels no shame, but hateful pride. Your closed eyes see no pain; separated and disconnected. How can you be so far away? What gives you the right to treat others this way? That pain that tears through your chest at night is real. That feeling of complete depression stings like hell. This is not who you were meant to be.

You are much more than this. You've got much more than this. Dead words have filled up your heart, this is not who you are. I'd give up everything to give you life again, if it was only that easy.

The ones you've loved and trusted were taken advantage of somewhere along the line. You never had a chance to see things clear, you didn't choose to be like this, someone chose for you. You never had a chance to truly hear the truth behind the lies that they've been feeding you for your whole life.

You stick your nose up at me, but I'm just gonna plant a seed and I hope it grows, hope that it changes everything you know and breaks your foundations, brings kindness and patience. I'm not gonna encourage your behavior anymore. I'll give you the love and show you the respect that you're lacking and pray that something breaks through to you.

It's not so easy to change the way that you think. It's not so easy to change your ways.
