Do We Fear God
Clint Lowery Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

The seconds taste like falling rain
It's almost chemical
The dreams we chase, a nightmare race
We deem so critical
And I believe we're all just scared
I see so much of me in them
The more we say, the less we grow
We use our words to close the doors
We're in and out, we live and die
We breach the walls to save our souls
Do we fear God? Do we fear God?

Would you ask my name if my weathered face
Was less than beautiful?
In this shallow place, we become the slaves
On a selfish pedestal
And I believe we're all just scared
It takes so much from you to give
The less we say the more we hold

We use our words to close the doors
We're in and out, we live and die
We breach the walls to save our souls
Do we fear God? Do we fear God?

We whisper something cruel
About everything and everyone
Am I the only one? I'm the only one
I'm not the only one

We use our words to close the doors
We're in and out, we live and die

We use our words to close the doors
We're in and out, we live and die
We breach the walls to save our souls
Do we fear God? Do we fear God?





Do we fear God? Do we fear God?
Do we fear God? Do we fear God?

Overall Meaning

In Clint Lowery's song "Do We Fear God," the artist delves into the human condition and poses the question of whether or not we truly fear a higher power. The opening lines, "The seconds taste like falling rain, it's almost chemical," set a melancholic tone for the rest of the song. As the lyrics progress, Lowery speaks about the dreams we chase, hoping to avoid a "nightmare race" that we perceive as critical. He goes on to state that he believes that we are all just scared and that he sees himself in others. The chorus then brings up the theme of using our words to close doors and divide people, and the need to breach walls to save our souls. In summarizing the main idea, Lowery asks the titular question: "Do we fear God?"

This song kinda reminds me of Linkin Park's "Iridescent". Wasn't sure how I felt about this album closer at first, but it has definitely grown on me. This is a great record.
