Penholder Lyrics

i feel you'r eyes crawling over me
as though i am something more than me
but i don't have anything good enough to say
i did not make myself this way
i'll show you what he did,
but i won't take the credit
it's not mine anyway
i just held...

    This song is about how they aren't taking credit for their work. They are letting God speak through them. They give all credit to God.

    I think that the song talks about what
    God has made with her, she is talking
    that God gives her his message and she
    write it in her songs, but she can't take
    the credit, because is from God, and also
    she talks that she is not that perfect
    girl who everybody needs to idolatrate
    beacuse of her art, because God is who give
    her the art of creating music, ok I dont
    talk english at all, I'm a mexican but im
    trying my best, I hope you understand my message
    also this is not my account I'm sorry

    This song is about how Lacy is saying she is not perfect, and how she will not take credit for what she didn't do. She believes that this is all Gods work. While "she holds the pen" he writes the stories, the songs, and our lives. "I can't take credit for something that I can't be..."

    This song is about the singer's love for Jesus, and how she wants to show the world that while she's the one making the art (her songs and lyrics), it's the Lord who has given her the ability to do so by dying for humanity's sins.

    "And all the art that I supposedly create...is all a reflection of what he's already made!"

    'Nuff said.
