  • This song is about people who need help and feel they need to be saved by religion. They ask the heavens and some of them get help and some of them don't. >>

  • Hi, My Name Is from Appleton, WiThis is a beautiful song about someone, and quite possibly their family, who knows they need help escaping from some tradgic situation and they don't know what to do anymore, or how to get help, so they turn to the one thing they do know; Their religion, after they find no one else will/wants to help them. (You don't know a thing about my sins, how the misery begins. You don't know, so I'm burning, burning.)
  • Anna from London, United KingdomI alway thought that it was simply about a couple in dire need of help and who are mocking religion, because no matter how many times they pray, they get nothing.
  • Indigo from Adelaide, AustraliaSomeone in a terrible situation, i think they're like homeless or unemployed or something:'Cause mostly I've been sprawled on these cathedral steps
    While spitting out the blood and screaming
    "Someone save us!" i think its someone who relies on other people and is relying on their religion too much, instead of actually get help. they're asking for help, but don't really know where to get it.
  • Paige from Egg Harbor City, Nji love this songs its one of my favorite songs.! and to me its means someone is asking the heavens for help.
  • Jess from Milton, NhI think this song is about how people put so much stock in their religion, they don't see that people around them can help to.
  • Kasia from London, United KingdomThe song is about people which rely on their religion and how it is ruining their life. Also that they need saving.
  • Gerard from Prince George, BcI like this song...:D.... and i <3 Gee...
