Swept Away Lyrics

Out out out out out out out now now now now now

The evil fell from your pretty mouth wrapped in your classic voice
Angelic in your syntax, demonic in your motive your pretty eyes don't know
That the water flowing from this well isn't...

    Other interpretations are probably more accurate, but to me it sounded like two girls. One is physically pretty and leads people astray with her looks, but her heart is cold and bitter.
    Then you have the other girl, average on the outside, but inside she's a diamond. She is a Christian and tries to help the other girl see how wrong she is.
    "I rage against everything that you do"
    She hates how the girl is and feels anger towards her, but struggles to help her anyway and in the end, the other girl repents.
    Just my idea. :)

    This song is about the lies of religion and how the only one real God can save you.

    This song is about being someone that you aren't really, and finding the heal for your unhappiness with God.
