Heathens Lyrics

All my friends are heathens take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please...

    Heathens is a term for a bad person, like a criminal, or bully or someone like that. So it is basically talking about the person being friends with a bad person, and saying you can never know the true personality of your true friends. They could look nice, when they in fact could be murderers. And I you hang with the bad people, not after long, you too, will be a heathen.

    When you are a heathen, it's not necessarily about religion. It's more about a faith we believe in. If somebody offers us a faith, we are bound by it, if you are your own faith, you are a heathen. You have your own beliefs this no boundaries. Say a bit narcissistic or to some extent. The kind of damage you can do will have no moral boundaries, and a result are void any emotion. Actions can be a bit gruesome when tempted. If not void of emotions, mental problems such as depression or an OCD

    The song tells such people to keep low key, and tells others not be careful around such and not push their minds to the limit.

    I think the song is about how you can still be friends with someone even if they've done bad things in the past. He's saying that all his friends are heathens, meaning that they're dangerous and will not hesitate to hurt you, but if you take it slow, you can become friends with them and you'll realize that they're still good people. You shouldn't judge them for what they've done because you don't know the half of the abuse that they've been through that made them that way.

    This song is about going to jail and that everyone in there is a heathen, meaning, doesn't know God and how they could smell someone new, how you'll never know who is sitting next to, (murderers psycho paths etc) youll wonder hoe you got there etc.

    I think it means... Someone is trying to convince another person not to join their gang either on the streets or in prison.. "I tried to warn you just to stay away. It looks like you might be one of us." I don't know that's how interpreted it

    I think that this song is about how having bad friends can kind of mess you up . Trust me I know from personal experience that having friends who just care about being bad can mess up your mental state . Even though you still care about them because their your friends . It also is really bad when their doing stuff to hurt you .

    I herd it was a type of worship to the devil and you don't know the 1/2 of the abuse means the singer was abused by his mom a lot and his father watched and laughed and his mom was a meth and drug alcoholic. but his friends also concededly abuse him and if his mom or dad saw bad grades they chain him up and abuse him

    It is possibily saying that if you have friends that are sinners and your a Christian wait for them to accept you as a Christian
