Review about Mewithoutyou (Me Without You) songs
responding to first comment | Reviewer: max------ About the song In a Sweater, Poorly Knit performed by Mewithoutyou (Me Without You)
""If you really want to just try to follow a path to God, I don't believe you need anything beyond [Jesus Christ]." That is going to point their beliefs more towards Christianity and not Islam. "
Jesus is the most quoted prophet in the Qu'ran
Fantastic song | Reviewer: ZMK------ About the song January 1979 performed by Mewithoutyou (Me Without You)
This song is a cry of desperation to be the man he used to be. He has lived in the good graces of god and told everyone that he is a Christian for so long, that he is now slipping and giving in to the world. He feels like he is blending into the crowd of "insects" and that he is becoming more a part of the world and less a part of his faith. the lines "After years with a crown on my head, I've grown overfed, unconcerned and comfortably numb" and "It was a matter of time--I always said I could see so now I’m going blind" pretty much sum up the song.
Lyrics for EP version! | Reviewer: Silencer73------ About the song We Know Who Our Enemies Are performed by Mewithoutyou (Me Without You)
"this last time I'll be there beside you despite all that I've said
there's meaningless, meaningless things to do, a life to live instead
and each day seems the same to me, but harder all the time
until I turn to Jesus, my love, my peace, I find;
he's beyond the shadow of your doubt and mine
he's no man's opinion, he is truth divine
come and save me now, come and shake my ground
while i catch my breath, come and catch your death"
hold on! | Reviewer: kiersten------ About the song Everything Was Beautiful And Nothing Hurt performed by Mewithoutyou (Me Without You)
so they got the title from kurt vonnegut, which is cool, but the LYRICS are from JOHN DONNE's valediction forbidding mourning!!! i'm disappointed that with two AWESOME literary references, the music isn't up to par. I can't make out anything they are saying and the music just sucks. I'm really sad about this. :( I was really looking forward to loving this song and it just let me down!
listen up | Reviewer: MIND POWER------ About the song In A Market Dimly Lit performed by Mewithoutyou (Me Without You)
NOt every mewithoutyou song is about god. i do not believe in god and i love mewithoutyou as much as the diehard christian fans they seem to have in masses. I think this says something about the band itself, it proves that just because they are religious doesnt mean you have to be religious to like them, i like the style of music therefore i enjoy the band. I dont have to believe in god or find bible references in every line of every song like you other dumbasses.
re: j | Reviewer: hawk------ About the song Messes Of Men performed by Mewithoutyou (Me Without You)
so you are saying that because he's a christian, every song he writes is intended to glorify god. i assure you this is not the case. aaron weiss is just a man with strong religious beliefs. what that means is that weiss' music will always be influenced by god because it's so important to him. that doesn't mean that weiss writes only about god and religion. listening to his music with that mindset takes away from ANYTHING he tries to say that he doesn't regard as religious, because it's automatically overlooked and religiously analyzed. that's what happened on this forum. Many if not all before me had this bias, and i just wished to open doors, present fresh perspectives, broaden minds for christ's sake. technically against christ's sake but who's keeping track?
For Anonymous | Reviewer: J------ About the song Messes Of Men performed by Mewithoutyou (Me Without You)
Weiss doesn't want Mewithoutyou to be called a "Christian band" because that is typically a label saved for those who make crappy music focusing only on things that occur in the walls of a church building. Not to mention that there is no Biblical basis for calling anything "Christian" other than an individual follower of Christ.
Watch this interview and then tell me that Weiss, not the band, is not a Christian who clearly writes words from a Christian perspective.
re: | Reviewer: hawk------ About the song Messes Of Men performed by Mewithoutyou (Me Without You)
i realize weiss is a christian and that my review can also overlook many aspects of the songs intended meaning. i'm not saying my non-poetic detailed analysis of the song is perfect,far from it. in fact, normally i am against myself making such a thorough analysis of any art. i just mean to present my unique perspective to a forum that was being overloaded with religious bias. i couldn't stand idly by as this beautiful masterpiece was laid to waste at the hands of the closed-minded. oh and your input at lines 3-4 is a great example of how perspectives differ but still offer deep meaning, the point i was trying to prove.
for J | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Messes Of Men performed by Mewithoutyou (Me Without You)
"The Weiss brothers are of Jewish descent and their songs use Jewish, from Muslim and Christian imagery to explore spiritual themes. The Weiss brothers were raised in a Sufi Muslim household—their mother had converted from the Episcopal church, and their father from Judaism. Due to the Christian imagery in some of Aaron Weiss' lyrics, they have been categorized as a Christian band, although in interview, A. Weiss has stated he doesn't think they are a Christian band. Their lyrics reflect a personal relationship with God, and are not evangelistic. Other lyrical themes explored include suffering and self-doubt."
To hawk: | Reviewer: J------ About the song Messes Of Men performed by Mewithoutyou (Me Without You)
I commend your grand explanation of how you interpret this song. That is all anyone can honestly say about a piece of art, is how he or she responds to it. And very often, especially with great art, there are as many different interpretations as there are listeners/readers/viewers/etc. The interpretations will vary on how similar they are to the feelings, emotions, and thoughts that caused the writer to create the song in the first place.
Every person's personal history - culture, belief systems, religions, education, transportation, family, etc., etc., etc. influence how our minds and bodies translate every piece of information we observe and absorb. Therefore, those who share common or similar personal culture, belief system, etc. would interpret the words in a similar fashion, while someone who grew up in a different culture, religion and class would interpret them far differently.
I say all that to explain that I am not saying your interpretation is wrong. But if you were really searching for the island that is the author's meaning in this song, you got lost at sea and sank by stanza 1.
I determine from your post that you are not a Christian, or religious of any kind. To each his own. But I'd like you to watch this video, at least the first minute or two, I think it applies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MY46s8h-E5A
See, I see your confidence in how you interpret this song. But as far as trying to judge its Christian meaning, if you are not a Christian, you are like Aaron trying to prove or disprove a calculus equation. You see only "nods" to Christianity, because those are the few points of the song you understand to be Christian. A Christian man in his mid-20s with a similar background as the writer can likely see every aspect of this song relating to the Christian life. Because, as you'll see if you study up on who Aaron Weiss is and what he believes, the author of these words interprets everything through the eyes of a Christian. Certainly, a non-Christian would interpret them differently, but that doesn't change the words meaning at the point that were written.
The author of this song digs through trash cans and dumpsters for food and clothes. His band travels(ed?) on a bus that runs on used cooking oil. He is open about his Christianity and its influence on his art in every interview I've ever seen. Do you really think you're going to interpret his words, or much of anything else for that matter, similarly to how he does?
So valiant as your, or anyone's, attempt at telling what the author meant by these words may be, it is all in vain. Besides, if he had wanted to write a few hundred words saying what you did, he'd have posted a comment on a lyric site instead of writing a 5-stanza song that's a million times more powerful and meaningful than anything you said in your explanation.
P.S. - Just to point out one thing - lines 3 and 4, doesn't it mean "a necessary death", as in dying, and living on after we leave our bodies "like the horseshoe crab in it's proper season sheds its shell" and then keeps on living.
