Torn: A song about going from Christianity to New Age religion
"I thought I saw a man"
Her former love (faith/Christ).
"Brought to life"
In her New Age religion, she thinks she sees a similar Deity.
She begins to describe her ex (Christ)...
"He was warm, he came around like he was dignified"
She is describing Jesus.
"He showed me what is was to cry"
She learned humility and humbleness.
She now tells the New Age Deity...
"You couldn't be that man I adored"
"You don't understand what your heart (love) is for"
New Age doesn't understand what love really is... "to Love is to Serve"
Here comes the sad part...
"I don't know him anymore"
She turned away from Jesus.
"There's nothing where he used to lay"
Her Bible is gone... her cross off the wall.
"My inspiration has run dry"
Without her Bible, there is no longer inspiration.
"That's what's going on"
There you go! She is torn.
"I'm all out of faith"
Says it all.
"Lying naked on the floor... bound?"
Trying out some new chakra technique?
"Fortune teller was right"
The Fortune Teller is the Bible!!! Yes, it's right!
"I should have seen what was *REALLY* there, instead of some Holy Light"
Pineal Gland activation, Kundalini... the light... it's Lucifer.
"But you crawled beneath my veins and now"
The serpent has risen and now has a hold of her... reflected in her shirt.
"I don't care anymore"
Ouch! Oh rebellious youth.
"So many things I can't touch"
Yes!! The Bible is about staying away from sinful things, but now it's too late. She
LIKES "Do what thou wilt". She's addicted to it. She's torn.
I've been there done that. I can relate.
"Illusion never changed into something real"
Yep, New Age is nothing but empty promises.
"You're a little late"
Since New Age didn't get to her first, she still has a conscience. She still knows
right from wrong. She is fighting for her own soul... from the serpent.
She tries the 'mirror of yourself' deal to no avail.
Her friends are all there for her trying to help her love this 'New Age Man'.
They eventually give up, because they don't know what they are doing.
As she recognizes illusion as illusion, it dissolves.
The vultures come in and get their 'salvage' (salvation).
"...If you can recognize illusion as illusion, it dissolves. The recognition of illusion is also it's ending. Its survival depends on your mistaking it for reality.
In the seeing of who you are not, the reality of who you are emerges by itself..."
"...how can the veil of illusion be torn away? ... it is written that you shall ...walk in the Way of His Will."
The video producers may be trying to 'salvage' this 'Pro Christian' song by inserting
their agenda into it.
