God Made Man Lyrics

You never know the weight of your crimes
But when all the gates have closed and you're tired
You stand a while by the fire
And it burns bright
A while, a while, you sit quiet

Inside you're so warm
Your eyes open up
To the sunrise
To the sunrise
Far from here

I never know the state that you're in
Oh, it's obvious to climb in your skin
But I know how we'll walk across
When inside, inside it feels right Inside you're so warm
Your eyes open up
To the sunrise
To the sunrise

'Cause I want you to know
That I don't

'Cause I want you to know
That I don't

'Cause I want you to know
That I don't

'Cause I want you to know
That I just

(God made man and his reason)
'Cause I want you to know that I don't

(God made man and his reason)
'Cause I want you to know that I don't

(God made man and his reason)
'Cause I want you to know that I don't

(God made man and his reason)
And I want you to know

God Made Man Meanings & Interpretations

To me this song is about accepting your choices whether you are proud of them or not. It's about findings peace with where your actions have brought you and knowing that you are in control when your eyes open up to the sunrise every day. The repetition of "God made man and his reason" (sometimes changed to "for some reason" when the band plays it live) to me points out that we are creatures of thought more than any other animal on the planet. We are the only species that tried to justify our actions.
