  • Of all the Poor Old Lu songs to show up on Napster in great number, this one did. I always found that strange until I heard that there was also a band called Slipknot. I can only imagine all those people who downloaded this song thinking it was the other band! Very amusing.

    As the brief text in the album cover eludes, this song is directed primarily towards the topic of 'indifference'. Our indifference, of course, keeps us from many great things in the Lord. Reaching out to others, more effective ministries, better friendships, better marriages, and so on. We must take our attitudes of indifference before the Lord so that He may change our hearts. He is willing and able.


    and fear
    how it often seems to be all you hear
    like a siren that just fills up your ears
    will you let it show you what you hold
    oh, so close

    and confused
    i think i keep the devil amused
    when i believe that his lies are true
    but beyond the haze i know
    which glory remains

    my need i seek
    in this hope i own
    Majesty, i see
    indifference is cold

    and hate
    it seems to run this world just great
    will they turn on time or roll in too late?
    there's no turning round
    on our knowledge now

    and pain
    does it fall upon your life like rain?
    it will not kill or make you insane
    just don't bow your neck
    to the cutter's blade

    my need i seek
    in this hope i hold
    Majesty, i see
    indifference is cold

    and fear
    is it ever, ever all you can hear?
    like a siren that just fills up your ears
    would you let it go
    and throw your arms to Christ, so close

    my need i seek
    in this hope i own
    Majesty, i see
    indifference is cold
