I am still listening to Switchfoot. Can’t get enough of it. Nothing Is Sound Rcoks!!!!! The song I am trying to figure out now is, “The Fatal Wound.” I have an idea, but I want to get your take on it. The lyrics are below.


I am the crisis
I am the bitter end
I’m gonna gun this town
I am divided
I am the razor edge
there is no easy now

son of sorrow
staring down forever
with an aching view
disenchanted
lets go down together
with the fatal wound

this is the real thing
no rubber bullets now
this is the final bow
my breath avoids me
my chest is in my head
my stomach’s upside down
down

son of sorrow
staring down forever
with an aching view
disenchanted
lets go down together
with the fatal wound
with the fatal wound
with the fatal wound

I haven’t listened to the entire album carefully, but it seems to raise more questions about life without offering much hope. It seems the album focuses more on the human dilemma and this song is no exception. The woundedness of one who’s at the end of his/her rope. I could be wrong. I just picked up the album a few weeks ago and haven’t listened to it carefully.

I have four Switchfoot albums and love them all, but the lyrics of this song are disturbing enough that I might not buy it. Christians should not offer art that pictorializes emotional despair of that intensity without at least tantilizing us with hope that could bring someone out of it.

Those are very dark and frightening words that could inspire some disturbed “outcast” teen to do something horrible.
