The lyrics of the song are very explicitly descriptive, painting a picture of a modern world ravaged by a broad variety of woes. Lee explores how these maladies came about, and then proceeds to describe the ways he believes they will be swept away when God finally decides to fix the world. It's a heavily Christian song, like many Lee works, but also works in insightful perspectives on many contemporary social issues. When we spoke with Lee in 2012
, he revealed, "There wasn't anything really Christian about our home. We went to church on Sundays. We didn't pray and read the bible or anything. But they took me to church somewhat regularly."
