Song Duration : 1:31
I can't seem to answer all these questions in My Mind is running overtime
To figure out This Life so full of anguish without all the death we see. I
See, I hear you, but it's so hard to believe. God, where are we now? Can
You hear us through those clouds? When the rain is beating down? Our hopes
And dreams never left the ground. Nothing's being done for your daughters
Or your sons. Everything just stays the same. So they tell me Nothing's
Your name. Do we believe in Nothing? (Nothing? Nothing? Nothing? Nothing?
Nothing?) Scream at the sky! I scream at the sky! Into the big nothing,
Begging to hear something. Into the big nothing, begging to hear... Scream
At the sky. As I close my eyes to sleep, I decide I still believe.
Song Explanation by vocalist Joe Musten:
"I basically wrote this song late one night when I was feeling frustrated
With the world and where it seems to be headed. You know, I obviously
Believe in God, but sometimes it's hard to see Him in this world. Rape,
Suicide, murder and betrayal are our newscasters' favorite topics. It's
What people want to see. We are attracted to death. It's disheartening to
Watch the news. People are addicted to being sick and being prescribed
Their cure." A bleak picture, for sure. For Musten, this mild depression is
Incapable of finding lasting root in his worldview. "I guess all can say is
That this world is broke," Musten admits. "We are out of currency, we are
Out of answers and we are out of reasons to push on. But amongst all the
Darkness I still feel like there is hope. I still believe in The Unseen.
Hope is real, I guess we all just gotta find it ourselves."
