Nice stuff. Made me put the record on. Took me about 10 years to get used to this one. The overwhelming weirdness took some time, but now I love it. Still have no idea what "this joke sport severed" means though and I think no one on earth really does.

It's about giving up. Giving up on relationships or their possibility...a joke sport. And finding a place where you're not tied to anyone nor anything... Through suicide? Possibly or some state of nothingness of being reliable on nothing and no one
My interpretation maybe. It's both my favourite and one of the hardest to listen to for me

I usually like reading younger fans' perspectives on bands that I've loved for years, but this is awful - you don't learn anything new and it compares the band to Snow Patrol, Embrace and Coldplay. I nearly stopped reading after the first paragraph, but I was kind of car-crash-curious to see where it was going.

Go away, actually listen to The Holy Bible properly, then get back to us.

Sorry, I'm in a really grumpy mood today.
