In the day by day collision Called the art of growing up There's an innocence we look for in the stars To be taken back to younger days When there was no giving up On the people we held closest to our hearts
Yeah it is you that I remember in that glowing It is you that took my first away from me It is you I set my standards to to every walk of life I haven't met another you since you were with me.
I freak out with a razor blade cut me I freaked out, thinking people didn't love me I watched closely as the you I knew forgot me In letting go, I am so proud of what I've done yeah
In a way, I failed religion I spit the wine from mouth to cup And I reached for something more than just your God Uncle, you spared not your children And while your praying hands are up There's no forgiveness for you! You sick fuck!
It is you that I remember in their bedroom It is you that took their first away from them It is you they set their standards to You wounded them for life You were a preacher and suppose to be above men
Sing with me
A brief bout with a razor blade cut me I freaked out, thinking people didn't love me I watched closely as the you I knew forgot me In letting go, I am so proud of what I've done
Carry on yeah carry on yeah carry on, carry on! yeah!
I freak out with a razorblade cut me I freaked out, thinking people didn't love me I watched closely as the you I knew forgot me In letting go, I am so proud of what I've done yeah
I tried, I tried I tried letting go I tried

Valleyjaye from Around Dallas, Txjustin's book says about this song "when sanctuaries house monsters their is nothing left holy in this world. they should each die for every promise kept under god..." he said in an frnd.tv interview that he wants his daughter to know that he spoke for the right things. well congratulations justin, writing about papal atrocities is a really good start sweetheart! there is also a black shirt tied to this song. the front shows jesus falling off the cross and the back says 'for promises under god' i wear it to church! ..true blue october fan here, if ya couldn't tell = )
Daniel from Winchester, OhYeah I already knew what it was about btw I love this song
Mariana from Florianópolis, BrazilI saw Justin talking about this sing on an interview [you can actually find it on youtube by the name "razorblade interview by Blue October"].
He said that he was in the middle of the recording process of the album, when he saw things on tv about people who found out their kids were sexually abused by preachers/priests.
He was pretty pissed off, 'cause church is a place where you were supposed to feel safe, it was supposed to be a kind of sanctuary.
Sarah from Jacksonville, FlI got the interpretation that the one who is sexually abusing the subject was a priest, and that the subject was young. Did anyone else?
"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
