The Wayside Lyrics

Born on the 4th July
Hypocrite didn't take much time to pick a side—the quickest ticket to the bay side
Give a scarlet letter
When the puritan survive
I'm a broken record spinning out of control
And Your the narrater of a book never sold
But I read it-didn't match what was told-just ripped apart this soul
Give a scarlet letter, remind em they're all better, the sinner damned forever
But I wrote the book on complexity, human greed and moral purity
So save your lecture, I've got company with every book in my library
I've taken up at the wayside
Yeah I've got much to write
One another
Won't infringe ya
Two each-other
Just enough to injure
Fort Knox got an empty safe with fools gold piled high
And we all get what we demand when the truths in short supply
Give a scarlet letter, don't you dare forgive em ever, what we preach need not apply
Fanshawe don't forget about me
She the angler down by the sea
So (Let's) burn every copy in the colony like Salem burned anyone but times are better
Now we lock em up forever and throw away the key
But I read a book that said 'turn your cheek' and I read a book that said he 'died for me'
But it's 1864-this House divided in civil war!
Can we compromise?
Both sides (Pew) seen sacrifice
I'll give you my weight in gold to keep a nation whole
I forgive you-cast no blame
We all learn and change
Do you believe the same?
I'm taking up at the wayside-to work on my last goodbyes
So if I don't see you again in this life
I suppose I don't see you on the other side
Carolina, Virginia, north Salem and continue
New line of opinion
I'm taking up at the wayside

Born on the 4th July

The Wayside Meanings

I believe this song is about someone upset with the way things are in the world. So they leave, but they still want to come together with the person. Or possibly a family separated. It’s about god and forgiving too. I really enjoy the wayside.

This song was pretty interesting to break down. I think at its root it is about fighting and making up and about the book scarlet letter. The writer says I forgive you at the end and it seems like they want an apology back but never get it. That’s why the ending says “if I don’t see you again in this life I suppose I don’t see you on the other side”. Neat song
