about

This song is a story about being mistreated and abused for not conforming to the religious beliefs of others. Though I am a person of faith, I've constantly seen others shunned or looked down on by those of my faith for not believing. I've heard that those who are non-religious are "blind to the truth" when I believe it's actually opposite. I feel that those who CANNOT question their own beliefs are actually the blind ones who refuse to look outside their small realm of understanding. - Wesley

"Nassar" was named by Conner and is an Arabic name meaning protector.

lyrics

Banishment for the heretic
Build my altar of bones
Punish my thirst
Punish my thirst
They made me to crawl
They never wonder
Can you conceive these things
When all around you blind their eyes
The wonder, the mystery
In everything within your sight
Harsh winds blowing
Caught in the sandstorm
Our tracks blown away
Sands still burning, tears drench my eyes
As the coming torment blacks the sky
Can you conceive these things
When all around you blind their eyes
The wonder, the mystery
In everything within your sight
So quietly it greets you
In this empty room
Full of broken words
Full and bursting through

[solo Conner Dugan]

Can you conceive these things
When all around you blind their eyes
The wonder, the mystery
In everything within your sight
