    ok. so i listen to some electronica christian music by Joy Electric. and i've come across this song called "ministry of archers" here's the lyrics... i dont know what they mean...

    any ideas?

    The Ministry of Archers

    lean on your sufficience
    string up your pittance
    massacre your valuables
    choke the remaining beasts
    you've gained the will
    to gather all the vigilant

    pull back the bow, snap
    the ministry of archers.

    slaughtered
    I've buried those slain on the hills
    we've lost more than we've gained to doubt
    best to prepare your feet
    move out in droves
    come make yourself invaluable

    pull back the bow, snap
    the ministry of archers.

    .....I've seen a few places try to explain the lyrics of Led Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven or The Eagles' Hotel California.....The answers basically come down to "A: It was the 70s B: It's probably something about drugs..."

    I don't know if the same applies here... :confused: :D

    Led Zepplein was Prophetically ahead of it's time and was Preaching to today's Blab abd Grab preachers! :D

    Sorry guys... I *really* couldn't resist...

    But, it was sarcasm with a point...

    Too many trying to buy a Stairway to Heaven...

    Gekko, they blow me away, too, mainly because I haven't a clue as to what he's trying to say. If this is supposed to have some religious significance, at least he could make his message clear.

    I agree with Tom.

    Whatever he's trying to say, isn't developed enough for even a C.S. Lewis fan to make out...

    (Though I could see adding a verse about the church in Laodecia. Or, maybe televangelists? :D )

    Sorry,

    SMM
