Being As An Ocean - The People Who Share My Name Lyrics




Listen Up
These are the things I've been dying to say to you
I won't engage in conversation littered with self-righteous rage
Because before the words were out of my mouth
You already judge what I have to say
If you ripped me open
Instead of judging my surface
Through pretense and hidden purpose
You would truly find a heart
Stamped with the name
Of whom I give my service

Division
Despite best intentions
Dissonance,
None truly exists
Except that
Which was created
By biased hands

Love has called me out
Of who I've been
To bring me to the right hand
And dine with Him
So keep slander from your tongues
Lest you be wrung
And found to be wanting
Of the Love that has redeemed everything

Division
Despite best intentions
Dissonance,
None truly exists
Except that
Which was created
By biased hands

Give grace freely away
Instead of claiming for yourself the blessings of YHWH
You twist the tool that was meant to light the way
Into a creature of your own
Peddling hate
The only abominations are those that we create
You have ripped apart the broken limb from limb
You have separated parents from their own kids
How dare you speak of grace
While you wave your signs of hate right in our face
All the lives you've ruined
The souls you've turned away
How are we supposed to fly
If you clip our wings?
This is not Ecclesia the way He meant for it to be
Keep bastardizing his name
One day you'll be set free
From this religion
All the false glory and fame
Look in the eyes of a broken man and keep telling him that he's the one to blame
And you wonder why I'm hesitant to share your name
Because you've missed the point completely
And I hate your hate

  2. Johnny TC559

    Since the day it released until 2019. Song is still 🔥🔥🔥








    Their softer and clean vocal sounds killed the love I had for BAAO . Just my opinion ..

    meatmxn

    I totally agree, also when they got a new drummer the fills were super different but that’s just cause their styles are different. Also their new stuff haha.... I don’t even know lol

    SpiderMax

    they don't have a drummer as far as I know. They do those electronically.

  3. Brad Suhrbier

    A shame that in listening to this i keep thinking of trump....

    Quinnton Thedens

    How and why?

  4. BNAMusic88 _

    How do you expect us to fly if you clip our wings 😫I felt that shit

  5. Lynn Perez

    Its a damn shame this song isn't on Spotify and Google PM. This song is, and has always been, extremely underrated. To the point i'm not sure most fans of BAAO even know it exists.

  6. Rodrigo Rodrigues

    Years ago i was first listening this song by this channel, and now i'm listening Wither Away, wich is a Band you are a member from, is funny to see how the things are. Wither Away is going places. Greetings from Brazil, and Sorry for bad english.

  7. Cass N Ash

    And I hate your hate! 💪🏼🖕🏼

  8. K Briney

    So proud of them for buying out their contract and bejnf their own band!!!!! I met them on warped 2017 and they were the kindest people... they didn't just shake my hand and take a picture, they said "what is your name" and thanked me for being a fan, and I feel like there is something special and personal about that... love this song and their music

  9. Matt Emery

    Shame this didnt make it onto the album

  10. lucas santos

    0:45 ❤❤❤

  11. Wesley Pi

    Beautiful, love it ! 🤘

  12. HaydenKink

    Does anybody know the meaning behind this song? I'd like to get a tattoo of the lyrics from 2:07-2:13 so id like to do some research first hahah

    Rebekah Ehrhardt

    I've personally interpreted this song as a scream towards people who call themselves Christians but are not biblical in their thoughts or acts. the most prominent example of these people is Westborough Baptist church- they may call themselves Christians, but they do NOT share the love of Jesus; they spread venomous LIES about the bible and about God. I hear the reference to them specifically in the simple line "I hate your hate" because of the disgusting signs that the people of Westborough carry, I'm sure you know of them. the people in that "church" taint nonbelievers' opinions of Christians and the Bible so they believe that all who label themselves as Christians are just like those of Westborough. but in fact, Christianity is absolutely not defined by those people, the love of Jesus is unconditional and the Bible clearly says so in all the gospels- we can even find the love/sacrifice of Jesus referenced in Isaiah to look forward to. God's love is not what the Westborough people say it is, and (i could be totally wrong for sure because I'm not in the writer's head!!) but i sense that this song is trying to communicate to people who think salvation is based on what you DO rather than what you believe, that they are tainting every one of us who has read God's word and knows the truth of His grace and mercy. the line "how are we supposed to fly if you clip are wings" also shows how those people are not sharing the Truth tear down the abilities of those who do share Truth to help the nonbelievers.
    okay in short :') my interpretation, which could be totally wrong, is that this song is basically a slap in the face to the people of and like Westborough Baptist church. God's love is not bound by earthly conditions, only He can truly love all without condition and WITH pure grace. Being as an Ocean writes a lot about God's grace on the album Dear G-d, it's probably in every single song, and that is the Truth of the Gospel.
    I hope that helped a little :')
    much love xx 💜👻

    Sad Messiah

    HaydenKink hes talking to people who refer to themselves as " Christians"( sharing his name) but are full of hate. Using the bible to justify they're lack of tolerance and lack of understanding .

  13. DeadBoy
