Toad the Wet Sprocket: Fly From Heaven Meaning
Song Released: 1995
Fly From Heaven Lyrics
Paul is making me scared
Walk into this room and swaggers
Like he's God's own messenger
Changed the name of my brother
Changed the things that he said
Says that he speaks to him
But he never even...

before understanding the song we need few information especially those who are not versed in bible/Christianity.
firstly jesus had a brother named james, and paul is someone who never met jesus in person, but had a silver tongue and after jesus died, with his popularity growing, for whoever paul worked for (the romans)started twisting and turning the teaching of jesus and instead made him an icon/idol and acted as if he was closest to jesus
Now for this amazing song explains a brothers loss and his dead brothers ideology being destroyed and all that he stood for by a man
james is the one talking
Paul is making me nervous, Paul is making me scared. Walk into this room he swaggers like he's God's own messenger. Changed the name of my brother (Jesus Christ was known to his followers, the real Apostles as Yeshua). Changed the things that he said (Paul distorting His words).
james dosent care if his brother was a god or son of god or whatever, all that he belived was in the teaching of his brother and his brother died for people hwo scronned him and he keeps asking
But if he's all you say
Would he fly from heaven
To this world again
To this world again
if he is all that they r claming him to be will jesus come back , that way james will get his brother back at the least
guys my interpretation may be wrong ...one of the best song i have ever heard even soo much high standard is maintained even in 2013 i wish any musician can come even close

It's about the stuggle between the apostle Paul, and James (the brother of Christ). That's how I interpret it anyway.
