    If you go back 2 steps for each step you go forward, and keep walking long enough, then when you get back to the place you started, you will have walked a distance that is 3 times the circumference of the earth.

    Full of themselves? You mean kinda like some animals that will eat their legs off to get out of a trap?

    Interesting lyrics... :)

    Some of the Christian rock songs that you listen to are quite thoughtful.

    Blessings.

    I put a lot of emphasis on lyrics, they're important to me. They can say a lot, and I especially like lyrics I can relate to.

    Relient K tends to have some really thoughtful and relatable lyrics, too. (A few examples: More Than Useless, Who I Am Hates Who I've Been, Be My Escape, Up and Up, etc.) Maybe that's the main reason I like their music.

    When clear Christian lyrics are reinforced by hard rock style, they can be really effective, also. (Two cents'.)

    Blessings.

    So what would you say is Relient K's prevailing style?

    Blessings.

    Pop rock, I think. They seem to have a kinda unique style, though.

    Well, okay, ty. So how for example would you think their prevailing style compares with that of Disciple (another of your favorites, I think)?

    Blessings.

    IDK. They're two different things that I just happen to like.

    "I’m giving up on doing this alone now
    Cause I’ve failed and I’m ready to be shown how
    You've told me the way and I’m trying to get there
    And this life sentence that I’m serving
    I admit that I’m every bit deserving
    But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair"

    "I am a hostage to my own humanity
    Self detained and forced to live in this mess I’ve made
    And all I’m asking is for you to do what you can with me
    But I can’t ask you to give what you already gave"
    ~from Relient K's 'Be My Escape'

    Some lyrics I've always liked.

    The last lines of these verses are very expressive! :)
