Ah, religion... for some reason I decided to wander into that minefield. This track was aimed at christians finding that their congregations are shrinking, as they become seemingly less relevant in a modern world.
"Now you're facing hard choices. Do you ignore questioning voices?" How much do they change to stay relevant, and at what point do they cease to be what they were?

I like to joke that I'm 98% atheist, which of course is absurd. It's like being sort of pregnant. But the point is that while I find the rituals and dogma of organized religion weird and even contradictory, I have, through my own experiences and tiny glimpses, come to realize that there IS more out there (at the risk of sounding like the X-Files)...

"What's true is true, and we can't break it. Whatever it is, I'm sure it can take it." Which is my clumsy way of saying 'the truth can bear scrutiny'.


If The Sky Is Falling

You said goodnight
Climbed up the stairs
Into your bed
Said your prayers
In a simple world with a guiding light
All is calm and all is bright
A simple world with no jokers wild
Just ancient stories in the mind of a child
Old old stories in the mind of a child

All this time
Years in the making
But the crowds are shrinking
Pillars are shaking
And now you're facing hard choices
Do you ignore questioning voices
Who wrote the stories in that forgotten style
What would they mean in their time and trials
How could they keep them in their time and trials

And if the sky is falling
Then why is this world still revolving
It's only your sky that's falling
Falling on you

What's true is true and we can't break it
Whatever it is I'm sure it can take it
It's not hard to see which way you're leaning
Speaking the words and missing the meaning
It's not all or nothing
There's no one to blame
What if we're all one and the same

And if the sky is falling...
